Booked the Steakhouse for our trip to Galveston, and it didn’t disappoint!! We enjoyed the tomahawk ribeye, scallop potatoes and lump crab and lobster risotto. We also had the butter cake for dessert. Great wine and beautiful venue. The tables were were close and once it filled, got a little loud. Otherwise, a wonderful dining experience. Highly recommend for a fine dining experience!

Arrived and was seated noise level was extremely loud. There was a table seated at the front of the restaurant and once they left the noise level dropped. Also one of the servers was wearing sports cream which was very strong in the air each time he or passed the table.

Food and drinks were amazing and our server Richard was very attentive.

I am a LSC card holder and LOVE Vic and Anthony’s along with other LSC restaurants. I’m a local Galvestonian but had never eaten at The Steakhouse. I am usually nervous about trying something new but this restaurant did not disappoint and exceeded my expectations. I asked to be sat in a more private setting and got exactly what I wanted. The restaurant puts off a positive and fun vibe too. From the drinks, to the appetizers and our main course to desert our dinner was fabulous. Big shout out to our waiter for taking great care of us and management for giving us the more “personal” touch and treatment. Landry’s Inc and Tillman Fertitta need to give this group and restaurant a BIG “thank you” for providing excellent service. We can’t wait to dine here again!

Very nice conveniently located upscale hotel steakhouse with excellent service & just ok food & ho hum wine by the glass options. My husband had the filet which came out medium well when he ordered in medium rare plus. I ordered the lobster tail and I expected for $100 it would be melt in your mouth delicious and it was just ok. Salads & desserts were very good. The au gratin potatoes were excellent. The food is good but...just not sure it’s good enough to support good the prices.

The service was great! We started with a salad and the lobster bisque and both were excellent. Great wine selection. The filets were certainly great quality and seasoned perfectly. The short rib mac & cheese was out of this world. We finished off with bread pudding and a birthday cheesecake which were both amazing. The food was delicious but the service topped it all. We will be back soon.

I’ve been to the Steakhouse on many occasions. However, this occasion the food quality was cheap. The ribeye was grisly. The food quality was completely not comparable to the cost. The only redeeming quality was the superior service by Hunter. He’s exceptional.

Our main server was excellent. Assisting server reached over in front of my wife to place my plate in front of me. I was appalled that would happen in a quality restaurant like The Steakhouse. The food was excellent and the portions were just right. I will keep this restaurant on my list of restaurants to revisit in Galveston and trust the reaching in front of a guest does not happen again.

This is still one of the best restaurants on the island, but Covid has created one problem. They have added dining seats in the bar area to allow for more tables. Unfortunately the noise, loud music, and "exuberance" from the bar destroy the ambiance. A simple solution would be to hang a thick curtain around the bar (it's circular) to shield off the noise but so far no one has thought of this. So if you're looking for a nice quiet or romantic dinner, be sure and request seating inside the restaurant.
