I have tried most of the steakhouses in the Houston area, however, Killen's rands as the best i have tried. The sides dishes are better than Flemming's, the desserts are better than anyone (try the Cream Brulle Bread Pudding), and the steaks....par none!

My only complaint was the hostess seating us in a bad area even though we were the first people there and her mini skirt that would be perfect for a street walker.

Enjoy!

If you are looking for an out of the way, intimate and romantic dinner, Killen's is the place. The crab cakes are divine and the wine list works perfectly with all their food offerings.

Husband and I went for anniversary dinner. Made a reservation and table was ready when we arrived. We let the sommelier help us choose a wine and it was PERFECT! Tuna appetizer, filet, potatoes au gratin all superb, and then came the dessert -- oh my gosh! The creme brulee bread pudding was incredible! Service was exceptional - very attentive but not intrusive, and we didn't feel rushed at all. My only complaint was it was very cold in the room where we sat, and the tables were slightly crowded. Otherwise, awesome! As soon as I save up, I'll be back.

Beware if the hostess is bringing you to sit in the back room, there was a party of 18 people back there when I went and I couldn't even hear my waiter when he was speaking it was so loud. Plus where the table was situated where I sat, it was SMALL even for just two people, was right up on the wall, had the air conditioner vent at my back, and a door to the outside on my side, not a very intimate scenery or feel at all. Instead I felt cramped while eating and even while cutting my steak my knife and elbow were hitting the wall cause our table was so close.
Onto the food....now wedge salads are my most favorites, Killan's menu makes it a point to name Apple wood smoked bacon on this salad, which to me is a huge part of the salad, however, if you are looking for more than literally a FEW small specks of the bacon on your plate you will be hugely disappointed. I found the total bacon to be on my salad equivalent to my pinky nail, thats NOT exaggerating. The 6 oz Center cut was delicious, no complaints. I also shared two sides: potatoes au gratin and the sauteed mushrooms, which were equally delicious and just enough for two people. For dessert I tried the award winning bread pudding, now this bread pudding is out of this world and possibly the BEST I have ever eaten. The wait staff was extremely attentive, always had our iced tea full, checked on us several times thru out the meal, and was prompt. The hostess, well, could be more welcoming and don more professional attire. Overall, food was good, atmosphere not so much, and wait staff was attentive.

My husband and I wanted to try a different place so after reading all the reviews, decided on Killens to celebrate our wedding anniversary. We had reservations but still had to wait over 30 minutes for a table unless we wanted to sit by the bathroom. The service was somewhat slow but very nice wait staff. We ordered crabcakes, bone in steak, wedge salad, cream corn and potatos and a bottle of wine. Our meal was $300 eventhough we split everything. The corn was incredible but the remainder was nothing better then a steakhouse buffet. If you want a great steak, go to Capital Grill or Strip House......

I try the Kobe long bone ribeye, and it S..ck. I eat kobe beef all the time in vegas and new york, and trust me it is not even closed. First of all, good KOBE Beef cost $30 to $40 a OZ.....final.... no if or but. The mac n cheese was dry, the spinach was good, the kobe steak was tough, but the service was good. I try almost every steakhouse in houston, if you want good steak try these restaurants: flemming, papa steak house, capital grill, and del fisho....place look nice, good tasting steak, good side order, and excellent service.

We made reservations 2 weeks in advance for our 30th wedding anniversary. My in-laws had tried the restaurant about 3 weeks ago and couldnt stop talking about it. We had to wait abut 15 minutes for our table to be ready. We ordered the crab cake appetizer, and the crab was good but the shrimp was fishy tasting. Next was salad and french onion soup. The soup was cold, and we had asked for bread when the soup was brought to the table. We never got a chance to complain about the cold soup, as we never saw the waiter. The bread was finally brought once the soup and salad dishes were removed-not what we had in mind, but it gave us something to do during the extended wait we had until our steaks arrived-at least 30 minutes. All 4 steaks arrived cold, and had obviously been sitting undelivered for at least 15-20 minutes. One ribeye did not look or taste right, and we told the waiter it was a sirloin strip. When the manager came over we told him that all the steaks and the 2 potato sides were cold. He disappeared to get a tray, and finally took the food back to the kitchen 10 minutes later. Imagine our surprise when he returned with a fresh replacement for the suspect ribeye, and the other 3 original steaks. The 3 steaks were STILL cold, and had been sitting under heat lamps for the past 30 minutes. Since it was a special occasion and we were not alone we chose not to make a bigger deal of the situation. The manager seemed surprised that we expected FRESH HOT steaks. He eventually took off two of the steaks off the bill, but it was still expensive for BAD SERVICE, cold, heat lamp heated steaks, and cold side orders at $7 each for some less than impressive potatoes. Overall we were there 2 1/2 hours, and did not have dessert (and it wasnt offered), Save the drive to Pearland and enjoy the luxury of V*i*c & A*n*t*h*o*n*y*s downtown. Same prices, awesome service, much nicer surroundings,and Good Food.

Visited Killen's New Year's Eve and was treated to the best meal of my life. I have noting bad to say about the establishment. If I had to nit pick the biggest issue facing the restaurant is the parking. Some people may complain about the price, I would not agree with this. I will be honest and say that I cannot afford to eat there on a nightly basis, but for any special occasion it is a must. For people that live outside of Pearland the restaurant can seem troublesome to find. Don't let this stop you from making a reservation and taking the drive. Killen's was graded the 10th best steakhouse in Texas. I think it should have been a little higher on the list. If you know what good food is you need to visit Killen's and if you don't know what good food is take a drive and let them educate you.

We'd been trying to get to Killen's after reading about it in the Chronicle. We started with shrimp cocktail. The shrimp were very clean and fresh tasting. The creamed corn was okay, a little sweet with a little kick. The asparagus was a tad bitter. The bacon-wrapped filet was very tender with a heavily smoked flavor. The Kobe filet was not cooked properly. The outside was a perfect medium-rare while the inside was rare with the consistency of Jello. The grilled shrimp were simply grilled shrimp with no frills. Now the desserts were pretty good. The bread pudding was made with croissants. The carrot cake is served hot. Both desserts are enough for at least two people.

The parking lot is dreadful. The building doesn't look like a building you'd go to for an $85 steak. The decor is simple. The noise level at an 8:00 dinner was quite high.

The service was good. The waitstaff seemed to be well informed of the menu items and technique.

From all the reviews and published articles I'd come across, I was underwhelmed with my visit. For the price, I expected a spectacular meal in a fine dining atmosphere. I do not see another trip to Killen's in my future.

From the outside, you'll be wondering what the fuss is about. Looks a bit beat up and not like the yummy, upscale steakhouse that it is. We have been once for our anniversary and I can't wait to go again. The food is out of this world good. We tried the Kobe beef and it is melt in your mouth delicious. The prices are high, but the food is worth it. For a special occasion, leave the kids at home and forego the drive into Houston - go to Killen's. Spend the money you saved in gas and parking and get dessert - YUM!

So, this is the first time I have reviewed a resaurant. I use Citysearch all the time but I guess I have never been so inspired to actually review a restaurant until now! I can not stop thinking about how good this restaurant is. The service was amazing...our waiter was knowledgable, answered all our questions thorougly, helped choose an awesome wine. We ordered crab cakes and scallops for appetizers and both were delicious. I had the dry-aged ribeye as an entree and I have to say that it was the best steak I have ever had! Dry-aged is the way to go! I live in Houston, eat out a lot and have eaten at every acclaimed steakhouse in the area and have always declared Pappa's as my favorite but now Killen's has taken the title. I can't wait to go back and I am telling everyone about this place. This place is well worth the drive to Pearland. The only drawback is parking.

My wife and I have dined at Killen's three times so far. I was surprised that it took me so long to find out about it. What was funny is when I walked in the first time, I ran into two old friends that are always looking for a great steak, and there they were chowing down on what I later tasted as the best steaks west of NYC, and that includes anywhere in the Great State of Texas, bar none in my opinion. You want Kobe, you got it, but I love their dry aged prime NY Strip as my favorite so far.
We have been just the two us, my wife and I; another time with another couple, and even with a large group of about fifty. We never had a problem, but you do have to keep an eye open for it as you drive. Parking is limited, but we have always found a place. The service has alwats been wonderful, in fact, they seem to add that personal touch and have made us feel right at home.

What elese can you ask for in a great place like this... Great company, great service, and wow what a great selection in steaks... dry aged, wet aged, kobe, whatever cut you want... we can't wait to come back. It sure beats having to drive home from the other great steakhouses located well into Houston or out Katy way. Perry's we also enjoy, and Chris better pay attention to this neighboring steakhouse.
Seriously, finally having more than a few great places to dine in the Greater Clear Lake Area isnow a fact and I love it.
OK, pass me those crab cakes!

Only neg. is the small parking lot, and having to roll my window down on these hot summer nights, so I can locate Killen's by that aroma, since it is so small that we have a hard time finding it. Thanks for our GPS now, its no trouble, LOL.

Cons: Parking Lot, maybe need Valet instead. The outside hides the wonderfulness inside, so, (Don't Read the Book by driving up to this place)

My husband made reservations to celebrate our anniversary, but we were turned away because I was not in "proper attire" . I was wearing a nice top, skirt, and white patent sandals from Ann Taylor. I was told flip flops were not allowed, though I wouldn't consider my sandals "flip flops". Anyway the experience was horrible. The outside of the building looks like a shack, but my sandals were not good enough for them.

Reservations are recommended (by phone) at this small, quaint restaurant. The exterior truly looks like a BBQ shack, but the interior is a cute, low-ceiling, simplistic, white table cloth restaurant. The waiters are knowledgable, the wine list is good, the food is excellent. The crab cake and fried roma tomatoes were delicious. The steak was perfectly cooked, the side dishes are family-style. We had the creamed spinach and the potatoes au gratin, which were excellent. The Chicken Francese was a bit too rich for me; fried chicken with a creamy mushroom sauce atop creamy tomato basil pasta. The bread pudding was excellent and surprisingly light. Although the name, Creme Brulee Bead Pudding is misleading as it has no crispy, caramelized sugar topping. A great place to dine when you don't want to make the 30 minute trek into town...

Steak was the best I have had in the Houston area and the two people that had seafood were just as impressed. We had the crab cakes, which were great, and the fried tomatoes were definitely different and we are glad we tried them. Service was excellent. and the wine list was varied and very affordable. The only issues we had were that their beer choices are not nearly as good as their wine list and that the restaurant is loud.

This was our first visit (party of 6) to Killen's. We have no complaints about the entrees, the food was great. The deserts we did find a bit lacking...need to be kicked up a notch. However, the problem with Killen's is not the food...it?s the service. Upon arrival we found that there was an issue with our reservation, that it had not been recorded correctly and the hostess made it sound as if we were at fault. We received several excuses about the reservations, instead of simply admitting to the mistake. They did get us seated, but the waiter informed us that there was an issue with the timing because the restaurant booked tables at two hour intervals...so now we felt rushed. Desert was a disaster. We were celebrating a birthday and instead of all deserts coming to the table at one time, we received our deserts a different times and the birthday girl got her desert last AFTER the rest of us had finished our deserts. The birthday desert was a lava cake and has to be prepared ahead of time...the waiter should have informed the table about the special requirements for the cake at the beginning of the evening. Lastly was the bill. The bill was split incorrectly, and the birthday girl ended up paying more than the rest of us! Although the amount to be adjusted was not significant and we didn't make them change it, we did inform the hostess. The hostess gave us a "whatever" attitude (yes, she said that) and left the table. I would definitely not recommend this restaurant if you are going out for a special occasion.

Excellent steaks, best crab cakes we have every had. Dessert is as good as the best in Houston. Chef Killen was executive chef at Brenner's Steakhouse and has trained in Paris and went to Le Cordon Bleu. Everything was made in house.

This is Pearland's first real steakhouse with the exception of the prices. Patrons get a 5 star meal well below what you would pay anywhere else. We've eaten here on two occassions and will be back many more. Both times my wife and I had incredible meals. The 16 oz ribeye was cooked to perfection and the chicken francese was an entree we'll get every time. Most recently, I had the 10 oz. filet mignon which was one of the best steaks I've ever had. I look forward to trying everything on the menu. The NY Strip is next.

The crabcake appetizer and creamed spinach are unbelievable. Save room for dessert. The bread pudding creme brulee is a monster as is the hazelnut cheesecake with a biscotti crust.

The setting is perfect for Pearland with an upscale feel that is 100% Texan. It's a restaurant for any occasion that is sure to be a huge success.
