I have come to enjoy Houston's because it's a trustworthy place to have lunch or dinner, either for pleasure or business. After at least 15 visits over the past year, never once a disappointing meal. Excellent and attentive service, great food and nice ambience. Without fail the wait staff checks in with you 2 minutes after the meal is served... More

I liked almost everything. This place is remarkably consistent. Staff are well trained and the food and service are always spot on. Haven't had a bad experience there yet

I eat at Houston's maybe once per year hoping it will get better. Every time I'm there though the food is disappointing. The service goes from below average to above average. The prices are high. The food just doesn't justify the prices.

Houston's has fall off the bone ribs that rank with some of the best I've had anywhere. The pricing and service are excellent, and it's relatively easy to park. Highly recommended for business or pleasure.

Hi. I have been a customer at Houston's for 7 years. The ambiance is great. The drinks...though i always get cosmos are very good. my meals...omg.

Friends and I arrived about five minutes before closing yet we were greeted very nicely and the service was great. Some food choices were limited; however, that was understandable. The food we did have was very good. Parking is often a bit of an issue there but arriving late during the week certainly helped. It's not fine dining by any... More

They have many great tasting dishes and the service is also good. Price is a little higher than some other restaurants. Love the fried onions.

This has become my "friday night don't wanna cook" dinner spot. The salmon is the absolute best salmon I've ever had....in life! I like the surplus of booth seating and the staff is generally accommodating and attentive. The price is pretty appropriate as well.
