“Excellent Steaks, Excellent Service”
Reviewed July 16, 2009

We have eaten in most of the local restaurants in The Woodlands and found a few that have good steaks but Kirby's has the best. They aren't inexpensive, but the flavor and quality make them worth every penny.

We are always impressed with our server’s knowledge of wines and parings and their recommendations have always been spot-on. Sides are big enough to split with another person and we haven’t found one yet that wasn’t tasty and well prepared. The atmosphere is relaxing and most of the time you can talk and be heard even if they are full to capacity. The food comes out as ordered, the perfect temperature and, most of the time, plentiful enough to require doggy bags. On several occasions we have had the dinner size seafood salad as a main course with bread and a glass of wine and left well satisfied.

What was even more surprising was the quality of the steaks that were served when we attended an investment and retirement informational dinner in the meeting room. The steaks were just as good as those served in the main restaurant to their regular patrons. Don’t forget to save room for the very large hunk of cheese cake or the chocolate mousse, both excellent.

“Worst Anniversary Dinner ... EVER!”
Reviewed December 15, 2008

From the moment we walked in, the service was poor. From the hostess to the server (who practically ignored us) to the manager. We will never go back.

Next time we want a good steak with excellent service, we will go to Saltgrass Steakhouse, where the porterhouse isn't $55!

“Farce of a Steakhouse”
Reviewed February 2, 2008

What a disappointment! I went to kirbys for a very special occasion with a friend and found it to be quite the let down. The Atmosphere was very noisy and the wait staff very inattentive. Our waiter all but forced us into having his recommendations which were ok, but very expensive. The Mashed potatoes were cold and to top it all off we had a spider crawl across our table. I would have complained but there seemed to be no management on site at all. This was my first and last trip to this Farce of a Prime establishment!
