The ribs were very good and was so tender it fell off the bone. The marinated hawaiian rib-eye was not so good. Whatever it was marinated in did not do the ribeye justice. Not flavorful at all and I left half on the plate. I should have asked for a plain grilled steak.

I've been going to Houston's for year and always had a great experience. However, this past weekend we went for my boyfriend's birthday and has a less that happy time. When we arrived the hostess set us off to the side near the bar although there was plenty of seating in the dining room - when we asked if we... More

We enjoyed the ambiance and food. All three of us had the pork ribs. Hubby had fries and skillet beans, daughter had baked potato stuffed and cream corn (didn't enjoy) and I had cole slaw and skillet beans. Our waitress and server had awesome customer service.

I love the prime rib!!! It's exceptionally good. I had a kale salad that was great. Also had a grapefruit/vodka drink where they fresh squeezed! Yum! The desserts are all great too. The coffee drinks are good too. Great place.

I have been going to Houston's for over 20 years. They never disappoint. Great food in a quiet, up-scale atmosphere. Never had anything that I didn't like but if they have the couscous, you have to try it!

The interior...meh. As a disclaimer, I did not order steak which is their primary offering. They seat you then the male seater and a waitress handed a menu and stood there until I ordered, despite my request for a few minutes. Their fish is farm-raised and tasted blandly suspicious to the point where I could not identify the type.. If... More

Three of us ate at Houston's. Even with a reservation, we had to wait almost half an hour to be seated.Two had salmon and one a steak. The salmon was good, albeit a bit dry and came with broccoli and whipped potatoes, and the portions were just right. The steak was enormous and provided an ample doggy-bag lunch the next... More

Our first lunch in Texas and we were hoping to really get a taste of Texan service. Unfortunately this didn't happen here. We waited 15 minutes for a beer to be brought to the table & 45 minutes for a coffee! The food was good but spoilt by items being forgotten and arriving in dribs & drabs. They were very... More

My favorite is the veggie burger, but all their vegetable sides are good too. I am a vegetarian, and they have good options for vegetarians

Great service, excellent Hawaiian ribeye. Looking for a steak place on Kirby, wandered in here. Sat in bar area one night, very active scene. Very Good Manhattan. Couple days later, made a rezy sat in quiet booth, raised up a bit that provide overview of the action. Both nights, serviette was excellent as we're the ribeyes.
