We walked into what just looked like a nice house at the beach in Kemah. What we found inside was the perfect setting for a romantic dinner with your favorite someone.
We started the meal with one of the best crab cakes we have ever had (and I'm not even the crab cake lover in the family). It was seasoned and cooked perfectly.
They brought out a hot warm loaf of bread that was wonderful. This isn't just some plain bread, it was differently seasoned and had that special difference that just made it yummy. The garlic butter they provided goes well with this bread.
For the main course we had an aged filet (6 oz) that was so tender and juicy it melted in my mouth (I know, how does meat melt, but it does!). This too was seasoned AND cooked perfectly. They got each steak spot on to how we ordered it - this seems to be a rarity at many chain steakhouses, so we always appreciate it when they get it right.
The main course is ordered separately from the sides which are Á la carte; if you want something with that steak you have to order each individually. We had a salad and baked potato (usual potato and sides) each, and shared the creamed spinach. The spinach was large enough for 2-3 people to share. This is a delicious dish. It was a little different because of the larger pieces of bacon, but what doesn't taste better with bacon.
The service could not have been better, but we went at an off hour and had the place to ourselves. We had the staff's full attention. In fact, the chef came out and checked on us. I can't say it would be as good if the place was full (I will save that for a future review if/when we return - see below).
The food, service, and ambiance here puts this place at the top. With that said, I believe the pricing is a little higher than other restaurants in the same category in the Houston area. For that reason, if I could have given the place 4 1/2 stars instead of 5 I would have.
It was good, ok VERY good, but just a little pricer than a place of this caliber. Was it delicious - yes, yes it was. Will I return, possibly on a special occasion. Will I recommend, probably, but with a recommendation that it be for something special when you don't mind spending more than usual.
