House of Pies

Source: http://www.houseofpies.com/

For journalistic integrity, I ate five pieces of pie from House of Pies.  Five pieces represents about 10% of the number of desserts they sell.  So really, to be thorough, I should go eat a few more pieces of pie!  House of Pies has been the most talked about and anticipated restaurant opening in The Woodlands in years.  It has been packed since it opened and there is often a short wait at lunch during the week and at breakfast and lunch on weekends. Everyone loves pie, and I especially love the apple pie and the fresh strawberry pie here. They are full of fruit and perfectly sweet.  I also love the chocolate meringue.  One of the best sellers is the Bayou Goo — pecans, cream cheese, a chocolate/vanilla pie layer, topped with whipped cream.  The strawberry rhubarb is also a crowd favorite. House of Pies is not just about pie.  They serve breakfast all day and have lots of options for those wanting lunch or dinner. The Hangover Omelet is my favorite breakfast meal.  It has everything in the omelet needed to cure a hangover or fill you up, and is served with a bread choice and a side/potato choice.  The hash browns are crispy and the O’Brien potatoes are a crowd favorite.  The bread choices include toast, biscuits, muffins, and English muffins.  Other omelets are also great.  I’ve had the Denver omelet and the chili cheese omelet and they were both huge and tasty. For the lunch and dinner options, anything with chicken is a winner.  They cut and marinate the chicken themselves.  The chicken fried chicken has a nice heat to it from the spices and is perfectly fried so that it is very crispy and then covered in gravy.  It is served with the vegetable of the day and a side of your choice along with a salad or soup. Chili on top of a baked potato is another good choice.  The Monterey Chicken Breast sandwich is smothered in jack cheese and grilled mushrooms and also served with a side.  The mound of fries I got was huge. The food is great.  The service is fast and efficient.  The pie is delicious.  I think House of Pies is going to be a well-loved place in The Woodlands.

The Butler House

The Butler House is a beautiful restaurant just south of The Woodlands on Gosling that is quickly becoming one of my favorites.  Whether you are in the mood for a dress up dinner on Saturday night, Sunday brunch, or sitting outside on the patio watching football or the Wednesday night family movie, it works for your mood.  Yes, this is the restaurant with the ginormous TV/movie/football screen in the parking lot.  The restaurant is an old historic home that has been lovingly restored into a restaurant.  Rooms have beautiful fireplaces and are cozy and romantic. The outside patio is large and perfect for casual dining.  The food is really the star here.  The steaks are amazing and can hold their own with any fine steak house. The filet is especially perfect.  The lamb is amazing and pairs perfectly with the sweet potato puree.  The caprese salad is one of the best I’ve had. It has beautiful fresh creamy mozzarella with greens, tomatoes, and avocado drizzled with a balsamic reduction.  The beet salad with blood orange vinaigrette is beautiful and tasty.  The short rib dinner with creamy cheesy polenta is also a stand-out.  I also loved the chicken friend steak with bacon cream gravy.   They have a fantastic bar and a creative wine list with some outstanding bargains.  One night they had Silver Oak by the glass which was amazing. The deserts are also not to be missed. They have a flourless chocolate cake that is rich and decadent and perfectly sweet. I order it every time. My first experience at The Butler House was Sunday brunch and it was perfect.  The biscuits were some of the best I’ve ever had.  The mimosas were flowing and the service was perfect too.  The crab cake benedict was amazing with its creole hollandaise.  The Butler House is a great addition to The Woodlands dining scene.
