“Not enough outside seating but good food.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 6, 2014

We had brought the family here while in the area picking up our daughter from a semester at sea. It looked like a neat place on the water, quite surprised when the wait was over 45 minutes. Chose to be seated inside which was fine. Seemed very dark but kind of a trendy place. The food was very good, presentation was excellent.

“Always return”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 2, 2014

I have been coming to Pompano Beach at least twice yearly for the last 20 years. We always return to Houston's as it became a "once a vacation regular visit". no matter what time of the year it is you have no choice bu to wait at least 90 minutes to get a table (we usually go around 6-7pm).
the inside dining room is too dark for my older eyes, but the food is always excellent and the service as well.
A little pricey for a family of 5, but well worth it.
I will keep returning.

“a good but now expensive steakhouse”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 29, 2013

its been several yrs since i have been to houstons..we requested outside seating but with a 90min wait we declined and sat inside...its always consistently good..and used to be a little more reasonably priced..this sat night i was sticker shocked...either I'm getting older..lol..but it was quite dark..even for me who prefers a darker dinning room..however...our server was wonderful...loved her british accent.,food came out quickly and in a timely manner..we started with the smoked salmon...wonderful...toast points an a dill sauce..my friend got the thai steak salad...he was disappointed in it...it looked good to me and tasted good..i got a houstons salad with the houstons dressing...it seemed to be a little different then i remember..but the waitress assured me it was the same...i requested bone in prime rib...great flavor along with loaded potato...i find it hard to pay $35 for it.. when i can do just a good if not better job in my own home...a good place to take out of town guests...but you must sit outside to get the full affect..

“Just the two of us”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 28, 2013

We had a delightful dinner. It was crowded but were able to be seated inside quickly. The prime rib was to die for although $35 seemed a little steep. The fish special was great, but the show stopper was the side kale salad. It was delightful and not at all bitter!

“Fresh High Quality Trendy Place”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 28, 2013

Houston's is a high quality trendy dining place here in Pompano Beach, FL. It's more of a couples and friends kind of place. It's a little pricey for families on a budget traveling with kids.

I opted for the rotisserie chicken with cold couscous salad - it was delicious and satisfying. My significant other opted for prime rib au jus sandwich with a fantastic peanut kale salad. The ingredients are VERY fresh and HIGH QUALITY. Very friendly wait staff too!
