Everything is really tasty, from the steaks to ribs to burgers. The vegetable sides are always a hit - they make anyone LOVE brussels sprouts, tomatoes, cauliflower. It's worth the price and wait if it's a special occasion. Delicious!!

The setting is open and pleasant. Services are always wonderful. The artichoke is my favorite dish and one should really try it.

Beyond a beautiful restaurant, the staff is well trained, fast to serve, quick to please and fresh fare beyond compare. You can't go wrong with Houston's for biz, for family and certainly not for date night. It's simply hard to beat the quality and seems...More
