Been here more times than I can count. Never disappoints. Best restaurant within 200 miles of Lincoln NE.

If you want a beautiful setting, attentive service and excellent meals, Houston's is the place to go. The restaurant caters to the diners needs while providing fresh, creative meals. We loved the leather chairs that encouraged a leisurely meal, and the servers were happy to fulfill extra requests. We ordered burgers and salads for our lunch, and all were generously... More

Houston's routinely delivers consistent quality. Their chicken peanut salad entree' is my favorite. There is usually a wait at prime hours. Be early and don't be afraid to eat at the bar, if there is a wait.

The menu is very traditional, but the drinks are well made and the ability to have quiet table after being on the plaza shopping is nice. The steaks are well made and the tortilla soup was tasty. It is also dependable quality.

The best steak I have eaten from a restaurant in ages! We were visiting a pastor friend of my husband's and he treated us to this restaurant. When I tell you the steak was juicy it WAS JUICY! Service was very courteous and professional. We plan to visit again very soon.

Great food. Huge portions. Shoestring fries are the greatest! Highly recommend the soups! Each day a different soup of the day. One of my favorite restaurants in the plaza!

On my last visit, I found the food ok. However, the service was wanting. The waiter was inattentive, to describe the experience in the best of terms. I really thought it bordered on rudeness. I will probably go back eventually, but after that experience, it certainly has made me hesitate.

Very comfortable, good service. Took a friend for a late lunch/early dinner. I had the ribs, the best around. Wife had the grilled chicken salad, excellent, and our good friend from Australia had the steak. Best he ever had. The baked potatoes were perfect. We always take out of town guests to Houston's.

The filet was out of this world ... Succulent, full of flavour, tender & luscious! Wonderful! & I loved the loaded baked potatoe. But the music was a little loud & jarring ... Not up to the quality of the food! The service was excellent!

Hands down, this place should be rated #1 for steaks in the MidWest. While the atmosphere is what you'd expect from a 'fine dining' establishment, go early in the evening or on an off-night (no holiday) to have a less hectic visit. We visited the night prior to Mothers' Day and there was a long wait, even with reservations (expected).... More
