I frequently dine at Houston's restaurants, whether I'm home in South Florida or visiting a different city. One thing is for sure, no matter location, city or state I visit, I can always expect the same top notch service and awesome food. I usually go for the Hawaiian Ribeye; however it was too early for a steak so I ordered... More

Went here looking for an authentic "Houston" dining experience after reading some online reviews. It did not disappoint. In fact, Houston's greatly outdid my old standby J-Alexander's for a superb casual meal - in every way. The atmosphere is somewhat dim but in a nice way, not a bad or heavy way. Dark wood, leather and brick comprise most of... More

We had a great meal. Relatively fast, the server never let the glass get empty. Hawaiian ribeye was terrific. Try the spinach dip. You won't regret it.

In town for a convention and my party and I were actually looking for another restaurant (GPS took us the wrong way) but we were getting hungry and on a tight schedule so we stopped. Glad we did. Service was excellent and food was outstanding. Will definitely come again if I'm in town.

The restaurant is a nice experience with above average service and better than average food. What our group did like: - good chicken - okay (not great) coleslaw - friendly & attentive waiter - comfortable booth - ribs - veggie burger What we didn't love: - 1970's dark atmosphere - Overly cold - may have been our table) - French...

Everything on the menu is good! The hamburgers and salads are incredible and one of the best steaks yopu will eat is right here. The ribs are amazing. You can't go wrong! We eat here at least once every trip we make to the city.

Houston's has been consistently excellent with every visit. Personal favorites ar the Gulf coast fish sandwich and the amazing apple wallet cobbler a la mode for dessert. Nice ambiance and just overall great place for lunch or dinner.

Houston's is a Houston tradition for many natives. Great bar, time-honored menu, and a wonderful staff. A range of options for all tastes, and one of the best grilled artichokes anywhere. You may have to wait a bit, but it's worth it!
