It ain't cheap, but it's worth every cent. Service, atmosphere, food quality and choice. And very reasonable wine list. The ribs are the best in the state.

This is a steady, dependable restaurant. The service is always good though with multiple wait staff serving one's table it can get a bit confusing. Personally, I love the ribs - they are the best you'll find anywhere in the country. The soups and salads are also great. Love that they do NOT serve bread, I don't need those calories!

I have had the opportunity to dine at Houston's on three occasions since September 2012 when staying nearby at the Manhattan Beach Marriott. Houston's is within walking distance from the Marriott. Service has always been top notch on all visits. Food is good too. When you want an upscale causal dining experience and/or a business meal then this dining establishment... More

I almost didn't eat here. When I first walked in the restaurant, I noticed a strong musty smell. Maybe the carpets need to be replaced or cleaned. Since everything else seemed clean, we decided to stay. I have eaten at Houston's (at various locations) many times, but something seems different now. The past four times I ate at either a... More

Really good fine casual dining. I have been unable to venture past the amazing French Dip Sandwich. The shaved Roast Beef/Prime Rib is great but the kicker is the roll. I am not sure if they make it in house but the French roll is always fresh and tasty. Wish there was one in SLC closer to home.

The food here is awesome! The staff is courteous and food comes out hot and correct. It's hard to recommend one item as the whole menu is great. It has a great steak house atmosphere. The sushi is top notch with a great selection of fresh ingredients. It gets busy at lunch but is definitely worth the short wait. I... More

The bartenders, Mike and Jessica, are the best. Always a good time when there. Oh, and the steak is pretty good, too.

It wasn't the Houston's they used to be. The menu selection was short and lacked variety. I went with a friend and she brought her 10 year old daughter. They don't have a kid's menu. Go figure. The waitress saw us a total of 3 times. 1, to take the order, 2 to give us our food, and 3 to... More

This restaurant is one of our favorites. In fact, we now have a tradition of going there on Christmas eve. It's pricey, but the food is worth it. I love the ribs- it's spoiled me for anyone else's! My daughter thinks that their Caesar salad is the ultimate! Service here is good and I understand that the Sushi (one of... More
