The service was good. The atmosphere was lovely. The prime rib was on the bone and quite tender. I also tried their seasonal grilled artichoke with a remoulade sauce which was very tasty.

Nice atmosphere and wasn't too loud. We met potential customers here for dinner and we weren't disappointed. The special that night was red fish with Cajun shrimp and it was fantastic. The fish had a lemon-butter sauce and it was delightful. I would definitely go back.

The atmosphere was amazing as always with wonder service. The ribs and slaw are amazing, but they changed the fries since my last visit. One of the main attractions for me has always been the shoe-string style hand cut fries. Please bring them back!!!

I hadn't been in quite awhile so recently met up with an old friend for lunch. We opted to seat ourselves at the bar. I always like to sit there as it isn't as loud as the main dining area and they serve you very quickly. Be forewarned that they will not allow anyone under 21 to sit at the... More

I normally can't go here without getting the famous roast beef sandwich, but they were plum out of it last time we went so we resorted to the Hawaiian Ribeye. HOLY. SMOKES. I would never normally allow myself to adulterate my favorite cut of beef with too many sauces or flavors, but this guy was off the charts. Paired perfectly... More

Service was good, menu was limited and pricey. I had the Thai steak salad, it was delicious but over priced.

Houston's has high quality comfort food and good salads/cooked veggies. Fish, steak, and other dishes are fresh and cooked nicely. The restaurant always is busy and bustling, but it does not take reservations. Service is usually good as the wait staff helps each other.

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
