“Melt in your mouth beef”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 6, 2014

The steak at Pappas is probably the best I have ever had. It was so incredibly tender and flavorful. The side dishes are also amazing.

“Great Place”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 27, 2014 via mobile

It is one of my favorite restaurants in town. Excellent steak, good wine and a very good service. Deserts are awesome, I truly recommend the red velvet brownie. It is one of the best dessert I've ever had

“Excellent Food, Great Service, Front of House needs work.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 23, 2014 via mobile

My first trip to Houston and my first meal in the city was not a disappointment. Pappas Bros food and service delivered on every level, except unfortunately for the front of house experience which came across and curt and stilted.

We arrived at the restaurant to a warm welcome from the lady on reception we were shown to the bar to be seated and ordered a drink. Before the drink was ready we were lead to our table then stopped and dragged back to the bar to settle that bill separately. Absolutely understandable but done rather clumsily.

Our hostess was overly formal but without the charm of good manners this came across as rude (please and thank you and a smile go a long way with us Brits). We also thought is was a little over familiar/ patronising / odd to address the ladies in our group as "dear" (something usually reserved for the over 80s) but this may just have been a misunderstanding on the "what British people do" front.

Our waiter (Josh I believe) made up for this slightly abrupt arrival in spectacular fashion. Friendly bit professional and with an excellent knowledge of the menu and wine list. Helped tailor our meals to exactly what each person wanted and was generally great.

When the food arrived we were not disappointed. It was excellent. The table ordered a variety of dishes from both the steak, meat and seafood menus and all were delighted with our meals!

All in all an excellent experience!
