So sad the developers of the Country Club Plaza could not work out some sort of an agreement with a 30-year popular restaurant. I never went here where the food wasn't great and the service wasn't excellent.

My wife and I had our last meal at Houston's (Probably the favorite restaurant of many on the Country Club Plaza of Kansas City). We both had the Club Salad (our perpetual favorite) and a friend with us had the Veggie burger. The Club Salad is beyond great and I've had the Veggie Burger before and can testify that it... More

Houstons is a place you can count on for consistently good food and service. I love the seared ahi tuna salad. Best in the city!

Joined friend for lunch and the food and service along with the decor do not fail. I am disappointed that they may close at end of March as they can not agree on new lease terms. If they do...I hope they will open in another location.

Warm, comfortable atmosphere. Staff are friendly, professional and fun. The food is excellent. You must try the ribs - I don't know where you'll get a better slab! Really anything you order will be wonderful. The Apple Crisp dessert is also better than you can get anywhere. The price reflects the quality of the food. You will pay a bit... More

Very professional and traditional high end service. The place the best French dip sandwich in Kansas City. Must try! I also enjoy the red beans & rice with a nice salad... More

My business associate took me here for a lunch. It was my first day in Kansas City. Although it was after 1 in a Thursday, we had to wait about 20 minutes to get a table. Once we did, we experienced great food. The tortilla soup was phenomenal. I ordered the chicken sandwich and enjoyed it thoroughly. The seasoned fries... More

After a 30 minute wait, WITH A RESERVATION, we were sat down.Other patrons with a reservation that waited a long time was offered a free appetizer, not us! The restaurant is VERY dark. I could barely see the menu. The menu is extremely limited. There were NO seafood options anywhere on the menu. Ordered the hamburger, it came out burnt... More

My husband and I celebrated our anniversary with dinner at Houston's, and we had a marvelous time! Since Houston's is on the Country Club Plaza, we chose a weeknight (Monday), in the early evening (5:30 pm), to avoid crowds. It was quiet and very laid-back in the restaurant, and the staff really had time to attend to all the diners... More
