Great Service, great food and pleanty of it. Weather it's one of the great Sushi Rolls, Burger or Chicken, Houston's has come up with some great tastes on their menu. The service is always impeccable. Always reliable.

Had dinner with my brother here. Took the ahi tuna salad for starter which was really good, perfectly cooked with a great dressing. Had the rib eye for main, be asked for medium. It was over cooked, even after I sent it back. The other main was the roasted prime rib which was well cooked and delicious

Came upon Houston's one day when we were frazzled and in need of a quick meal and glass of wine. Having never heard of the place, we expected a mediocre steak house, at best. We were greeted with the delicious scent of the grill and friendly hosts. The darkened atmosphere and comfortable booths offer a more private meal while the... More

Really enjoyed this business lunch ... service was excellent, food superior! We had to wait a bit for our table, so sat at a bar table and had cocktails. This is a very busy restaurant ... filled with a mx of busy young professionals and ladies who lunch. Everyone was having a good time ... if the noise level is... More

Never disappointed at Houston's. Love the selections of sides and the ribs can't be beat - they fall off the bone.

The atmosphere was inviting, but the food was so bland and the meat overcooked. For some reason there were 3 different servers during our meal. There were for in our group, our bill was $200. Which isn't a problem when the food is worth it.

There is nothing like Houston's. When my wife and I want to get away and have a romantic evening, we head to Houston's. They have great ambiance and an amazing selection of meals. One of our favorites is the Veggie Burger and french fries. I wish I had the recipe and the person to make it for us. This is... More

I normally like Houston's and other restaurants in the Hillstone group. In fact, when traveling I check to see if there is a restaurant from the Hillstone group in the area because I have appreciated the good service and quality food. However, this location was disappointing. My grilled sea bass was bland and overcooked. It actually had a burnt flavor.... More

If you love great food, consistent taste of what you crave and excellent bar selection - this is the place. Menu selection is not extensive unlike most that has 3 pages but none one great item. Go for the rib eye, cheeseburger or french dip if you're feeling meaty and smoked salmon and loup de mer if from the ocean.... More
