“Great food, cigar smell”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 14, 2013

The food and service is excellent --- then someone lights up a cigar and the evening is ruined. There should be a large sign visible from the road that warns you. If no smokers are around it is great food, service & ambiance.

“You can have a cigar here”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 13, 2013

If you want a nice steak and a bar where you can still enjoy a cigar you have found it. I usually dine in the bar so i can eat and smoke a stogie which they sell or you can bring your own.

“Best Steakhouse in the Woodlands, TX”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 9, 2013

I've dine at to Kirby's Steakhouse several times. This restaurant is by far the best steakhouse in the Woodlands, TX...from the 22 oz. "Cowboy Cut" to more manageable size steaks, chops and seafood dishes. The restaurant offers an intimate atmosphere and elegant service. In recent years, they have attracted larger corporate functions but the service has not suffered.

Cocktails are reasonably priced but the extensive wine list is pricey. The Kirby Sommelier may be of assistance. Entre's are $40 - $$75.

Dinner reservations are a must, even early during the weekday. Valet parking is free and the parking lot double stacks to accommodate all.

“Best Steak House in The Woodlands”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 5, 2013

Kirby's...what can I say except it is excellent. A bit removed from the busy scene immediately prior to the mall, Kirbys's gives you a great feeling when you walk in - the huge fire pit going, the hushed and upscale atmosphere. They make their own salad dressings and the blue cheese is the best I've ever eaten. Steaks? Unbelievably good. I prefer this to Flemings and Perry's, two other fine steakhouses in our town. Loved the night when i got there early, it was still before the dinner crowd came in, and watched as wait staff polished each glass on every table to perfection. Kirby's is expensive, but worth every dollar when you bite into their food. A great place for a special family occasion.

“Kirby's is not Ruth's Chris”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 25, 2013

Good steak, slow service, a bit over priced for the quality. Had a dinner for four, good not great. This place says, "I am as good Ruth's Chris" but in reality, they have a long way to go. It was a good meal, well presented and well prepared but agonizingly slow service and a very gabby waiter. I would not go back if I were after an upper level quality meal.
