“Our first time at Houston's”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 28, 2014

We went for a dinner on a Saturday night January 23, 2014. There was five of us. Genny was our server. She looked after us very well. Our food was excellent. The manager came by our table a couple of times to ensure we were all happy. Overall, excellent food, excellent atmosphere, excellent service. We will definitely be back. Keep up the good work.

“Forget the keg Houston's is the spot!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 26, 2014

Three of us had steaks and one the grilled salmon...Best steaks I've had in Barrie!
Drinks were ordered and delivered pronto, same with appetizers and the main meal. Our servers was Deserie, lovely girl and very efficient and attentive with out making you nuts. Didn't feel rushed and the food was amazing, I had the cheesecake trio and would wholehearted recommend it to anyone, you get a sampling of three in one dessert! forget the Keg folks and waiting for and hour at the bar...HOUSTONS is the spot for steak in Barrie the manager came to our table (John) to make sure we were well treated and we couldn't say enough! great Night!

“Last visit”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed January 26, 2014

This was our second time at Houstons. It was no better than the first time. The food was either inder cooked or overcooked and wait staff was indifferent. There are so many better places to eat in Barrie...

“First visit ”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 19, 2014

Natalie our server was fantastic, the music was horrendous it was more dance club than fine dining. Food was great and luckily our first time here happened to be during barrielicious. We will be back if the music changes!

“Amazing! Must try! Great food, service, and value”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 12, 2014

The waitress was attentive, meals were brought promptly, the meals were hot, the food was excellent! The waitress we had was very personable. The manager came out and greeted us, as well as inquired about our meal. Very friendly atmosphere, good selection of food. Our server Tara-Lynn was the best! Prices were very reasonable. Will definitely return, especially for Barrie-licious 2014!
