Steamboat House

Houston is the oil capital of the world, and the folks in the oil industry love great steaks. Steamboat House has become a favorite dining spot for those in the oil industry from Houston and those visiting Houston from around the world.

Serving the finest cuts of USDA Prime and upper choice steaks, broiled to perfection. Many guests say, “Best Steak (or Prime Rib) I’ve ever eaten.” Guests rave about our selection of fresh seafood, and our chef creates a superb daily fresh seafood feature. Finish off your meal with our mouth-watering bread pudding or our Texas Cannon Ball and a cup of famous Café du Monde coffee.

Our wine list is heavy on California labels with excellent choices for the connoisseur yet not overwhelming to the casual wine drinker. A guest can have an enjoyable bottle of wine for less than $40.

The Log Cabin Room is one of Houston’s favorite private dining facilities for groups of 20 to 90 guests. The walls of the room are from a 200+ year old log building from Pennsylvania. During November and December the restaurant becomes a “Winter Wonderland”, Christmas is a special time at the Steamboat House.

Steamboat House is an award winning steakhouse and an award winning Texas History Museum, honoring Sam Houston and the Heroes of the Republic of Texas. Owner Charlie Fogarty opened the restaurant in 2005 to house historic 6’ x 8’ paintings of Sam Houston and George Washington. They were painted for and used in the 1936 San Jacinto Centennial celebrating the independence of the Republic of Texas. Texas was an independent nation for almost 10 years, and is the only state that joined the U.S. by treaty between two nations. The portrait of General Houston has been called the greatest portrait ever painted of the Texas hero.

Steamboat House is proud to be on the Horan’s list of “America’s Top Ten Steakhouses”; even ‘Old Sam Would Be Proud!”
