I have been going there for the past 20 years. It had its ups and downs. It is not as good as used to be. Food is reasonable. Service is good. Prices so and so. But I still love the place.

The typical US restaurant setup. Good atmosphere although I didn't know it was a smoking place until halfway into my meal. Down the street from the Kempinski. Houstons has great, tasty and well done steaks but for salads, not so much! Nice friendly atmosphere - you need to ask for beer and wine as these don't feature on the menu... More

We were a party of 5. I haven't been to this place since over 10 years. The decor, music and even many of waiters were the same as 10 years ago. ordered Steak, burger, fish & chips, Fajita and chicken rolls. non of us enjoyed as quality of meat and ingredients was not to standards, over cooked and dry ....

Best steakhouse in Amman. Reasonable Prices, great service and excellent staff. Love their nachos(a must have) and delicious beer. Kind of pricy, but you're getting amazing quality food and authentic dishes.

My husband took me there for our 2nd anniversary. Service was very fast, we ordered steak and a chicken & mushroom dish...and they both were great. Staff were friendly and attentive. Its not a cheap restaurant though, so expect to pay min JOD 20 per person.
