I went there in April 2015. Houston's is nicely located in the Country Club Plaza. It has free parking next door. It has a bar area and a dining area. The ambiance is refined yet simple, mostly wood and leather. The service is friendly and prompt. The food is the most important. The big chunk of... read more

Love the cabbage and goat cheese salad - and you have to try the smoked salmon! What a treat. It's very busy - like most Houston's, but we found easy seating in the bar. Enjoy!

For my money, this is the best restaurant in the city. I have eaten there twice in the past few months and really enjoyed the service, the food and the atmosphere.

We were in town to see the Royals and picked Houston's to have a date night on the eve of the game. My husband had only visited the Atlanta, GA location...and what he especially loved was that nothing had changed after 20+ years of not having eaten at a Houston's! Also, the service was superb!..and the General Manager, Dan Bucher... More

We have coming here for over 20 years and it's still a favorite. There are probably better places for specific menu items but for overall quality and variety, they can't be beat. The menu isn't huge but it offers a lot of choices. She loves the Hawaiian steak and I love their ribs but we keep trying different things. We... More

Steaks were not tender and with too much char. No bread or crackers were served. For the price paid, meat should have been tender and better grilled. Disappointed to say the least.

Houston's keeps a steady menu so you can count on finding your favorites. Very nice wine by the glass. Our favorite sandwich is the French dip cooked to order. I have mine medium rare, he prefers well done. I substitute broccoli for fries. Great food, great service, very comfortable environment.

One of my favorites in KC! Near the plaza, and with a bar with selected local ales (and abroad, if you care). Anything you try will be good! Save space for the apple crumble!

A nice, high end steak house on the Plaza. A rich feel of the place, very good service, and excellent food. The only reason I dont rate this higher is that it feels like so many other high end steak houses. Maybe more creativity in the food? Not sure, however, you wont be disappointed in the food or the service.... More

Houston's is a required stop whenever we are in KC. They have the best ribs in the world! Not just in Kansas City...In the world! We've eaten at Houston's in other cities as well, and they are consistently very good.
