I have dined at Steamboat before this passed Saturday. I was always been given a table somewhere in the main dining room, but never in a corner.

The only way the server could serve the people across the table from myself was to reach over my back all evening. This was annoying at best!

I could not enjoy the various pictures / wall décor, because I was looking directly at a wall two feet ahead.

As we departed the main dining room. I did take noticed that we was dressed like everyone else. Was it the 5:00pm time?

Mark this visit was my last. I will be visiting Taste of Texas in the future.

This wasn’t just dinner, it was an experience. We felt like we were eating in a museum. It was definitely a conversation started.
Seafood was fresh and seasoned to perfection and the peach Bellini was refreshing.

Our first time to Steamboat. One of the steaks was way undercooked. We sent it back. It took a while to get the steak back and by then my steak was cold as I waited since I did not want to eat alone. The Texas-decor, the ambiance was wonderful, but we were really disappointed with the attitude of the manager. We spoke with her when she brought the steak out, and then again when we left letting her know our disappointment. She did not take any type of percentage off of the steak when we got the bill for our inconvenience. We expected at least something off for our inconvenience, that is normally the standard when they don't cook it right the first time.

This is a wonderful place to go for steaks and a history lesson. Prime rib is superb. Always come early so you can spend time looking at all the history on the walls.

Steamboat House has become one of our favorite dining places for special occasions. We’ve never been disappointed with the quality of their food or service. They have excellent bartenders who accommodate special requests.
The restaurant itself is a beautiful tribute to historic Texas.

This was a date night, that was special. We arrived early and was promptly seated. The wait staff were very friendly and attentive to our needs. The menu selections were quite appealing. The ribeye steaks were well prepared as seasoned well. The appetizers were full of flavor. We also tried a bottle of wine that was a perfect complement to our dinner the Moscato was full body and quite tasty. The building itself is a very interesting tribute to the great state of Texas full of memorabilia that provides a interesting seating for dinner. I would highly recommend this Restaurant for excellence in food and service with dose of Texas history

First time here. The food was absolutely delicious! The service was outstanding. Our server, James, did a fantastic job and other staff too that kept our drinks filled and bread baskets filled. The history of the Steamboat house and the portraits was incredible to look at and learn about our Texas History. Thank you again!

Excellent food and service. A moderate noisy table behind us, but this is to be expected during December Christmas parties.
It was our 38th wedding anniversary and we very much enjoyed our experience.

Overall experience and food were great, as usual. Steaks were on point and desserts were excellent. Enjoyed all the sides except the green beans were slightly tough. Either a bad batch o beans or slightly undercooked. Presentation was immaculate and service was amazing. Had a great birthday dinner!

Great steakhouse. The service was first class and the food was excellent. Recommend the crab cakes and bacon wrapped shrimp for appetizers. My steak was cooked perfectly and tender. If you’ve never been there it’s full of Texas history. Our waiter gave us the rundown on some really great artwork that decorates the walls.

Four of us had lunch here recently to just get out and go somewhere nice. We were not disappointed. All of us tried to eat light and healthy, though we couldn’t resist to calamari appetizer. Very nice. I would rather talk about the service this time, since the food is always spot-on. Our server was Cleopatra who is not only a very good server but a amazing person. Ask for Cleo and you will get a bonus with your meal: attentive, professional, and very friendly service. After all, isn’t that why we all go out?
