It was great food. We had our work Christmas party there and had about 50 people there and everyone was very pleased with the food. The appetizers were AMAZING! We had a nice private room that was decorated beautifully. It is expensive to eat here but I guess you get what you pay for so it was worth it! Will... More

Each of our group of six ordered the governor's Houstons filet mignon. The steak was tender and juicy. The sides were prepared perfectly. The service was impeccable. We finished the meal with a creme brulee. The meal was one of the best that I have ever had.

We attended a wedding rehearsal dinner here. We had a large group of 50+. It was fantastic! Loved the steaks and desserts. The decor is historically Texan. You just can't go wrong here regardless of the size of your party from 1 to 100!

We hadn't been to Steamboat House in probably 10 years but received a gift card there and went to celebrate my retirement. We started with calamari which was fried to perfection. We both had seafood - my husband had fried shrimp and I had the seafood trio - a crab cake, salmon and shrimp. Again - everything was excellent. Our... More

We ordered the crab cake appetizer. They were wonderful. The burger was the best I have ever eaten. Chris did a great job serving our party of 7 with enthusiasm and hospitality.

A restaurant in the standard of good Texas restaurants. Food is excellent. Service excellent too. You cannot miss this restaurant from the highway...a bigger than life statue of Sam Houston adorns the restaruant.

Been driving by for years not wanting to exit the tollway, but finally decided to enjoy a couples dinner for 4 and everybody truly enjoyed themselves. Service was excellent, the decor captivating, and the food and beverages are terrific. Highly recommended...

I went to Steamboat house several times for different events (business lunch, reunions with friends, etc.) Last time I visited the Steamboat house was in October, when I went with my wife for a date night dinner. She was really impressed. This upscale restaurant reminds me of the restaurants I've seen in movies, where high society was gathering for soirees... More
