The steak, the cheesecake & the potato's were SUPERB! Far better than most steakhouse restaurants. However the shrimp cocktail was just, bland; and the service was 'ok'. I watched as the Manager checked and chatted with guest's from each table; though when he came to us, he just looked the other way; and walked to the next. I was dissapointed; though it wouldn't be a reason for me not to return. Overall it was a very good meal; but with everything included; it wasnt great. -A noteable find however!

Fall in love with the food, or in my case with your future bride. My wife and I had our first date here, and we've loved it ever since. Yes, it is special to us, but that aside it is simply one of the best establishments in Houston.

Is it expensive? Absolutely. A nice meal for you and your beloved (appetizer, 2 entrees, sides, dessert) with a bottle of regular wine will run you at minimum $200. We only go on special occasions due to the price, and usually spend around $250.

But man is it worth it. Excellent service, delicious food, artful cocktails and a great atmosphere. You don't go here to just "eat dinner" (unless you're rich). You go here to celebrate. And we love celebrating at Pappas Steakhouse!

This is a very nice place for a intimate date or a group of friends. The appetizers were great, the steak was amazing, and dessert was simply delicious. A little pricey, but you pay for what you get, I will be back.

Hulihanmaegan has nothing but wonderful things to say about Houston's Pappas Bros, I love that it is not a chain and the atmosphere is relaxed and enjoyable with wonderful service. The wine list is great! But honesty the steaks are out of this world, I'm very picky and it is refreshing when the hulihanmaegan couple can find a enjoyable custom piece of meat!
