Rehoboth Beach Delaware is blessed with many fine restaurants. Houston and White is at the top of the list. Last evening with a party of six we were treated to a wonderful experience of great service from LJ, an excellent bottle of wine, and exceptional...appetizers, steaks, seafood and a creative dessert menu. We had New York Strip steaks, filet mignon, and the nightly seafood special of rockfish. All were prepared to perfection. The dessert menu was exceptional and the coffee at the end of the meal was perfect. Houston and White is not a discount restaurant. It is however worth the price.More

Have been coming here years but this was our last visit. Waited over hour for disgusting food. Cold or burnt steak. Inedible and way overpriced. Staff could have cared less as they served 3 others before us. Total disaster of a dinner. Way down from...past years. Never againMore

Houston White is a place to dine when you're seeking beautifully, elegantly, perfectly prepared, tasty, very expensive food. Scallops ($39) were wonderfully served on an interesting risotto bed. Swedish meatballs ($16 as an app) likewise were deliciously presented with a bit of pasta and a...mushroom cream sauce. The "harvest" salad ($16) was enormous and beautiful, filled with fresh garden ingredients. Both apps were easily sharable. Steak ($50) - and rockfish ($39) - were perfectly cooked to order. Despite the very high quality of the food, we felt the experience was overpriced, because the ambiance was loud-and-clattering (not "energetic," as Open Table euphemizes) and the service was friendly but rushed... bordering on brusk. (Don't think about having a quiet anniversary or birthday celebration here.) Admittedly, our experience was on a weekday evening during peak beach resort season, at a post-COVID time when staff shortages are rampant, so we're understanding about those mitigating factors. Menu prices (which were not determined by the post-COVID moment or by labor challenges) were off-putting: $39-flat for every entree on the main menu, $50 for every "chop house" item, $16 for every glass of wine or dessert serving (those prices dissuaded us from lingering for dessert). At $16, the apps are fairly priced, because their servings are large enough to share.More

We had dinner at HW on July 16, 2021 to celebrate our 38th wedding anniversary. Bartender, Mike and our server, AJ brought their A game! We enjoyed cheddar biscuits, smoked rockfish soup, a wedge salad, and scrumptious filets. The martinis and celebratory champagne helped make...the evening festive! Thanks so much for helping us mark this milestone!More

Make sure you read this full review. You won't be sorry. If your looking for one of the best all around dinning experiences in the Rohoboth area, this is the restaurant for you. Its all about the food, however Houston White delivered more. My Wife...and I have been wanting to dine here for the past 2 years, and finely succeeded last night. So many restaurants in the area. I'm only sorry it took so long. This place is off the charts. I Travel a lot and this place is now on my top list of "Must Dine At" Sandy our waitress was focused and engaging. My hats off to her great service. It was apparent that the whole staffs goal was to make sure the patron was priory #1. Cathy, one of the Managers, always stopping by the table to chat. When I told her I would like to Thank the Chef for our tasty meal, she had the chef stop at the table. Loved the decor, the cute bar, and fancy bathrooms. The open kitchen is impressively clean and fun to watch the masters at work. Lets get to the food, because after all, its all about the food. The Lobster was succulent and cooked perfect. The sides were well portioned and tasty. The Steak was one of the best steaks, I ever had. Lean and Mean. Suggest Medium Rare. I'm a Pete Luger New York Fan, and this steak was every bit as good, and that's hard to match a restaurant that has been around over 100 years. We had the Maple Bacon Bread Pudding for Desert. This should be on the TV Show "Unique Sweets" Its to Die Fore. I can't wait to return with Friends and also try their other establishments. Hats off the the whole staff, and Thank You. Signed, Very happy foody PatronMore

I had the distinct privilege of taking my partner to Houston White Co. for his birthday. From appetizers to entrees to dessert, the food was hands down the best in Rehoboth. That combined with the excellent service from Steve our server made it a birthday...to remember! Thank you so much for a truly incredible experience!More

The Tomahawk steak isn't cheap, but oh my God it was worth every penny! We've had this before in Philly and NY, but this was perfect!! Our waiter Jake was top-notch and we highly recommend Houston & White!

Our experience at Houston White was outstanding, start to finish. The physical restaurant itself is very appealing. The service was outstanding; our server seemed to be at or near our table the entire time we were there, without being an intrusion. The food was exceptional;...my wife had the evening’s salmon special, which she praised, and I had a filet, which was cooked perfectly, had great flavor, and was accompanied by very good sides. This is an expensive restaurant, but we found the experience there to be well worth it, and would highly recommend it for a special occasion or just an exceptional evening out. My only regret is that I’m not able to dine there on a second evening during this trip to Rehoboth.More

Nice fine dining atmosphere and good service. Ordered a filet mignon with a side of vegetable. What a disappointment ! Tasteless dry meat without any accompanying sauce. Side vegetables were bland. Not a good dining experience for a dish at $65 !
