Simple, but consistent

Great ribs, and the best fries you'll ever have! Huge surprise is the zero corkage policy. Pricey drinks, but at least they're a fair pour - big!

As part of the HillStone Group, this is a great variant on the Houston's brand. They have slightly different offerings. The staff is always great, and the food top notch. Always make this a stop on every trip here. Have to admit, I always have their signature prime French dip sandwich.

I love the food here. My favorite is the kale salad -- I actually don't like kale, and I LOVE the kale salad here. I took a friend here and made him try it -- his comment "this is kale? WOW". The drinks are great, the bartenders are friendly, and the ambience is fun. If you want a quiet place,... More

Very good food, very nice drinks with a limited menu. A little spendy, but good for special occasions.

Food favorites are French dip and prime ribs. Not great for vegetarians. Only a few selections but very good salads and corn bread. Best tip is there is no corkage fees so bring your favorite wines to dinner.

I don't really believe that this place needs any further recommendations but, hey, it was such a great experience when a friend of mine introduced me to it that I had to return a couple of days later on my own. I stayed at the bar and enjoyed an excellent service, excellent food, excellent drinks while letting the vibes getting... More

The food was good. It's not cheap. We (5 grown men) were put in a u shaped booth. It was uncomfortable dining. I think the place would be great to sit at the bar and eat or as a date spot. Not sure it's a great place for more than 4 on a business dinner. Again the food was good... More

Food is excellent and service is great. All staff is attentive to every table. One great perk is no corkage fee if you bring your own bottle of wine. In addition they have a very good wine list at reasonable prices. Only negative is hat it is difficult to hold a conversation in certain parts of the restaurant due to... More

The bar is very popular and the food is great. It is always very busy and typically we have to wait for at least 30 to 45 minutes. We never seem organized enough to make reservations. I love the cornbread and grilled artichoke. My family loves the ribs and the prime rib.

I was hesitant when the hostess explained they had to split us into two booths, but we really were craving their food! They went out of their way to seat us right next to each other which was great. Our Server was outstanding and was always there when needed but didn't hoover when we were enjoying conversation. Great knowledge of... More
