“Loud but good food”
Reviewed February 19, 2013

The food is wonderful - apps through dessert. My only complaint is that when it is crowded, which it is often and deservedly so, it is very loud and kind of takes away from the experience. Another complaint is their wine list is often out of date - you order a wine of one vintage and they bring you a later year, saying they ran out of what you ordered. It's understandable given how big the list is, but at the prices they're charging you'd think they would take more care with the list - maybe have an insert or something. Heck, just handwrite it on all the lists; I'd rather that than get the wrong wine.

“Excellent Food and service”
Reviewed February 16, 2013 via mobile

Went with a group of 15 All Star Weekend and had the wine room which was superb. Everyone was delighted with the food and service. I had the three peppercorn steak which was very good. Will be back when I am in Houston.

“Outstanding Food and Service”
Reviewed February 14, 2013

My wife and I went here for our 25th anniversary. We made reservations and told them of the occasion. They seated us at a table with a little extra privacy and the staff made sure to acknowledge our celebration. Everything about the steakhouse was top notch. The service was perfect, not too overbearing and not too infrequent. The wine list is almost overwhelming but the sommelier helped us pick the perfect wine for the evening. Our meal was done perfectly with the our steaks cooked to the exact temperature we requested. The lobster macaroni and cheese is an phenomenal side dish. Its a great twist on a classic comfort food. Our dessert was delicious and decorated to commemorate our anniversary. Pappas Bros. Steakhouse is known for their quality of food and service and they did not disappoint.

I had the best steak of my life. It was amazing, flavorful, cooked perfectly and just delicious. The restaurant had a great vibe and was incredibly busy. The creamed spinach was also amazing. The staff was also great

“Absolutely Excellent”
Reviewed February 11, 2013

Great bar, attentive but not intrusive service, knowledgeable wine staff, and great steak. I'm not really sure what else you could ask for in a restaurant. I was a little disappointed that we had a 7:15 p.m. reservation and didn't get seated until nearly 8 p.m., but they made up for it by offering our table of 8 some appetizers on the house. Definitely give this place a try if you like steak!
