Pitchfork Steakhouse

12914 Murphy Road

Stafford, TX 77477

Cuisine: American Homestyle

This is a brand new restaurant and the only steak house in Stafford. Housed in what was formerly a butcher shop and meat market, it prides itself on authentic in house dry-aged Texas steaks. The atmosphere is unassuming and very casual, with a country café feel.

On the menu are typical American soups, salads, burgers, steaks, seafood, pork chops and roasted chicken. You get five choices of steak cuts, including tenderloin, rib eye, New York strip, sirloin or dry aged prime rib with just as many options of add on steak styles including Cajun style or bleu cheese crusted. I was surprised that no T-bone or Porter House steaks were offered.

From the way it was described, I was expecting a high-end quality steak. While it was cooked exactly to our request, tasty and tender, the strip steak and prime rib did not wow either one of us. In an attempt to try something unique to the restaurant, we ordered the bourbon pecan pie to be told (at 9:00 pm) it was still in the coal-fired oven and would be a while. A complementary piece of chocolate cake was offered as a consolation, which turned out to be the best part of the meal. It was very good!

Overall, the experience was pleasant and the service was very attentive. The food was good, not bad, but not exactly what I expected. It felt more like a casual country café than a steak house.
