Default Restaurant advice near Katy

My wife and mother in law are going on a quick business trip Sunday-Monday in the Katy area. It's also my MIL's birthday and I'd like to set them up at a nice steak restaurant for dinner Sunday. I am clueless in that area. Any suggestions?

If your in to mexican food I highly recommend Guadalajara Hacienda off of I-10. A family friend of mine named Roger Mott took me here one time and if I am ever back in that area that is where I will be eating.

If you REALLY like your MIL and want the best in Katy, Pearl and Vine. It's $$$$, so if you want a little less $$, Perry's is great.

Another vote for Pearl & Vine. Anthonies in Simonton is worth a thought too.

I will second Pearl and Vine, and throw in the Federal American Grill if you plan to stay out in Katy. If you want to venture into west Houston along I-10, then Taste of Texas is a good choice. As another TBHer posted, Guadalajara Hacienda is good, as is Ciro's Italian Restaurant, and both of these 2 restaurants are next to one another on I-10, just east of Taste of Texas. Great recommendations so far, so you should not be disappointed.

We can walk to Pearl and Vine from out home. It is expensive. Southeast corner of Mason road and I10 is Saltgrass Steakhouse and Babins Seafood. Babins hands down for seafood.
Heading East from Katy proper southwest side of 99 is Gringos Mexican food, very good and County Line BarBQue side by side. Becks Prime is also in that cluster.

2 other really good options. Most of Anthonies’ Market Grill is dining outside. Just an FYI- but a great experience dining in the country with the cows in the fields.

Alicia's has good Mexican food. Make sure you pick the right address if you decide to go cause there is one in Cypress as well.

Since you said "steakhouse", send them to Taste of Texas. It's near enough to Katy and ranked one of the top steaks in Houston-area year end and year out. If you doubt me, go to www.tasteoftexas.com and go to their News and Accolades page. You will be the hero son-in-law!!!!

The last time we went to snappys our breakfast was cold by the time we got it. That was the last time for us. Got pancakes one time before to go and they were pretty rough as well.

I live in Katy and have not found a steak that Iíd pay for or recommend. My absolute favorite pace to eat is Da Vinci, but itís awesome Italian food. I do like Babinís for seafood.

Do NOT spend hard earned money at Taste of Texas. Iíve been there three times as a guest, and have never had a good meal.

Captain Tom's is much better than Babin's IMHO.

DaVinci is outstanding for Italian food. Probably my favorite Italian food restaurant. Quaint little place with incredible food.

Pearl & Vine is quickly becoming one of my favorites. We live in the subdivision next to it, so we’ve been there 3-4 times. Great atmosphere, solid service, and very good food!

Yeah, I just looked them up and they sure are! That being said it looks like the beef dishes are the highest which is understandable. If you go buy a nice filet from HEB right now it will cost you $20 for just the steak....

Note that Da Vinci is not necessarily cheap, but it is the kind of food that is VERY difficult for you to replicate at home so to me it is worth it...

I'm going to try this Pearl and Vine place as well as the Federal Grill. I see the Federal Grill is doing the restaurant week deal so would be a good time to try it...

I did not know that. We went there a couple of weeks after it opened and it was pretty average given the pricing. You could tell they were still trying to get their feet under them so to speak. Atmosphere was really nice. It will definitely get another chance from us for sure. The last couple of times we have been to Anthonie's it had slipped a notch from precovid days. I think trying to find reliable staff that will stay on for longer periods of time is a challenge for these higher end restaurants these days. There is a certain level of expection when you choose to dine at a place with those price tags and it can be difficult to execute when your staff is constantly turning over. Just speculation on my part.

Are you referring to Ryan Hallsted or Anthonie Decker? Ryan is the owner and executive chef at Pearl and Vine, and did work at Anthonie's as a chef.

He was also at Reef before making his way to Anthonies. Reef was a great place when he ran the kitchen.
