    Food was delicious! Anthony our server was great! We did have to wait over 20min for our table even though we had a reservation but it was not their fault. The place is small and it was busy. The biscuits and pork belly are a must for the appetizers! The spicy cucumber margarita was exceptionally tasty too!

    The food and service were great, but when we made the reservation there was no mention of a set menu. Then I received a call from the restaurant two days before to confirm the reservation and was informed that they would only be serving a set menu and no other options. I couldn’t cancel since it was two days before Valentine’s Day so I had no choice but to suck it up and go. Just wish I had the option to order off the menu. Despite the lack of communication, I’ll definitely go back for the food, just not on a holiday.

    I’d been wanting to dine here for awhile, finally went for my birthday. Had a rather large party of 8, Julia our server was amazing. Made sure we had everything we needed. I made a reservation for 7:30 and was promptly seated at 7:15. I had the old fashioned with the whiskey, very well balanced. I then ordered the dry aged ribeye, well prepared and flavorful. To accompany my steak I ordered the jalapeño grits. I wish it was a little more spicy. But that’s my personal preference. Overall experience was top notch I will definitely be back.

    You can not beat the burnt ends or the braised short rib, but the salmon and creamed corn were equally amazing.

    Disappointing Experience at Killen’s STQ I recently dined at Killen’s STQ with high expectations, but sadly, my experience fell short. The casual atmosphere, while suitable for some, did not align with the upscale steakhouse reputation I had anticipated. The food was average and certainly not worth the price tag. The service was a major letdown. The bartender was assigned also as a server and seemed disorganized and was inattentive, with long waits for even the simplest requests. The lack of attention to detail reflected poorly on the overall dining experience. Moreover, the casual ambiance seemed out of place for a steakhouse of this caliber. The noise level was high, making it challenging to enjoy a quiet, intimate meal. It's disheartening to see a place with such potential compromise its ambiance and service quality.

    I wanted to like this place but… Either we were right under an A/c vent or the temp was set low but we were cold. Informed the waiter whose response was I cannot turn off the A/c but I see what I can do. Was cold the whole meal. Wife does not eat pork. The off menu app was described as crispy shrimp. No mention of bacon. We ordered, she took a bite and sure enough got a mouthful of bacon. She did not each much the rest of dinner The mushrooms and onion rings were over salted. The rib-eye app turned into a meal lack the chimichurri as described and was bland.

    Excellent food. Had the pork belly appetizer and the creamed corn ravioli appetizer. Both were outstanding but the pork belly was the best we’ve had. Entrees we had we a filet, snapper, chicken fried steak, and a burger. All were excellent - the filet melted in your mouth! The fish was a little dry but had great flavor. The chicken fried ribeye was very good and the burger was great. We were. It going to get desert but our waiter said the carrot cake was life changing so we got one and split it four ways. He wasn’t exaggerating! LOL. It was unbelievable and I’m not a carrot cake fan! This one was incredible! I’d go back just for the pork belly and carrot cake! Highly recommend!

    Spectacular experience all around, Went on date night with the Mrs. Hadn't been here in awhile and just wanted a nice cozy meal near the house on a rainy night. Best meal in a LONG time: we got filet, red snapper with blackened peas and collard greens, onion rings. Two glasses of red (wine choices were pretty pricey but good quality). Excellent friendly service. Ran into some old friends there and all the other tables were happy and nice, too. Just a perfect evening.
