A go to place for good food

This is my go-to-place for great food, drinks, and live jazz music. If you are in the market for ribs look no further as Woodmont Grill will serve you the best in town.

Visiting from way out of town for a basketball tournament and found this restaurant by chance after a long day of travel. Nice staff seated our fairly large party quickly. Wait staff was great and food excellent. I had the California Burger and it was cooked exactly how I like it. We would go again!

If you can get past the "attitude" exhibited by some of the greeters, then prepare to wait for what may be an average meal at above average prices.

This restaurant does the one thing with food that "I hate," namely, substitute ingredients or spices that are not mentioned on the menu. The server should be telling me when I order it, " Hey is comes with asparagus tonight instead of carrots or the chef is using cilantro as the main ingredient, are you ok with that?" I know... More

Houston's/Woodmont Grill was a favorite meeting spot for some years. Service and overall appeal have degraded over time and a former favorite is now to be avoided. Last time there we ate at the bar. The bartender was cold, bordering on hostile. Today the noise level on entering for lunch was so painful that I left.

We have been eating here since it opened and still love it! The food is always consistent and good! The wait staff is excellent....they seem to have the right formula there I am disappointed, however, that they are so rigid about the dressing on the chicken salad and also that they have removed romaine from their restaurant!! While I love... More

Everything is always good at the Woodmont Grill- Great food, attentive service and amble portions. The only changes over the past 10 plus years, and the prices keep going up an up. However, no one in our party ever leaves not full and satisfied!!!

Have been to this restaurant a few times over the last couple of years. Always enjoy the live jazz music and ambiance of the place.

I have and will always love Houston's aka Woodmont Grill. I'm so happy that Woodmont grill kept the same menu concept as Houston's. Whatever state that I visit that has a Houston's I'm definitely dining there. I do not care how many new restaurants are presented I will always love Houston's and Woodmont Grill.
