We celebrated a birthday here recently on a Sunday evening. They lost our reservation so we had to wait for a table for 6. Our waiter was not very attentive, but we managed to enjoy our meals anyway. The salmon was perfectly cooked as was the rib eye steak and ribs. One of the salads ordered... read more

When there for dinner with friends visiting from out of town. Had not been to a Houston's in several years. Food was OK. Service was good. The place was very noisy which reduced the ability for conversations with friends. Thought the menu prices were a little high especially for a restaurant that was so noisy. Sorry - don't plan to...

Well, the title pretty much said it all. I was here with two co-workers and while the food was very good, the price seemed a bit high. Spent $50 on prime rib and a coke. Unlike what other posters have said, there was no problem with the service for me.

Food here is fairly simple but excellent. Service was fine. Always had a good crowd. Noise level is fairly high.

The menu was small and lacked choices,due to season. (ex. No crab cakes) The St. Charles oysters when was described, wasn't what you'd expect from a new Orleans style oyster on the half shell dish. Houston's fries the oyster and then places the oyster back in half shell. The food was good when it arrived. It's just that there are... More

I thought the food was good, but I found the service very lacking. It was like they were bothered they had to serve us. We had to ask our server what was taking so long for the bar drinks, which took a good 10 minutes to be served and the bar was not busy (it was around 4:45 pm on... More

Let me start by saying that I did work out at the Dairy Ashford location 25 years ago and loved the professionalism of the restaurant. Since then, I've been to the Kirby location a handful of times, since I live on the south side of town and don't get out that way very often, My husband and I went for... More

We've eaten at Houston's in Pompano Beach many times and always enjoyed the food, service and ambience. The French dip prime rib was a favorite. This was our 2nd trip to the Houston Tx location, we probably won't be back. Service was good, as was the smoked salmon appetizer but entrees were just so-so. We felt they've raised the prices...
