“Business Lunch”
Reviewed March 25, 2014 credit card Amex Card Member Review

Had a business lunch with an associate. We ate at the bar. Both of us ordered burgers and they came exactly as ordered. Service at the bar was excellent. I found it to be much faster than the last time I actually ate in the restaurant itself.

“Valentine's Day!”
Reviewed March 4, 2014 via mobile

Awesome Valentine's celebration! Blackened mahi mahi over a bed of rice & fried asparagus ---beautiful plate presentation! We have dined here several times, and can tell you service is superb! The chocolate covered strawberries were a great touch to the evening & serving champagne while we waited for our table

“Unusual but interesting”
Reviewed January 16, 2014

Our first trip to this restaurant, primarily a steak place. Not inexpensive but I gather steak prices have risen substantially due to the drought and cattle sell offs. Tables are well separated and ceilings are very high, so it is easy to have a conversation. The restaurant is a tribute to Texas history. Anyone with an interest in it will really enjoy the place, including the log cabin in one room. The food was good, though not exceptional. The service was attentive and the restaurant was quite clean. We had a fun evening.

“Bad experience and over priced”
Reviewed December 28, 2013

visited with a party of 6. They cooked 5 of the steaks incorrectly. To be fair they did recook 2, but for $45 a steak this should be a lot better. The staff seemed to have little idea what a medium rare steak should look like, even though they were obviously well done.

Nice surroundings, but probably the worst meal I have had in Houston for 5 years.

“Rude bar tenders”
Reviewed December 15, 2013

After having dinner there with friends we went to the bar to have a cocktail. From the minute we walked in the service was horrible and it took forever to get a drink. After asking to talk to a manager we received a very rude response from the bartender. When the manager came out he said we were being cut off after only one drink. I have never seen such poor customer service in my whole life.

We will never return to this place!!!
