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.

Got there but I half hour before closing. Got seated in the bar booths. Darren the waiter suggested the burger, I took the suggestion and it was well worth it. The burger was phenomenal cooked medium rare and it was perfect. I asked for broccoli on the side it was steamed nicely. I added some garlic butter and it was... More

Really active for a Tuesday evening.Had about a 30 minute wait at the bar for a table so not too bad. You can order from the regular menu and sit at the bar if you prefer.Had to park in the outback but they had a golf cart shuttle to ferry you to the door which was a nice touch.This is... More

Houston's on Kirby is definitely a "bustling" place on a Friday night. People around the bar yelling at each other like they're at a rock concert, so that at a table 15 feet away you have to scream at your companion to be heard. Except for the lower lights, well-dressed staff and higher prices, we'd have sworn we were at... More

Surprised my wife with lunch at Houston's today. The menu is not huge, but contains an excellent variety sure to cover every different pallet. We both tried the ribeye steak. To be honest, that was honestly one of the best, if not the best steak I've ever tasted. Perfect marbling and tender enough to cut with a fork. It was... More

Not sure what this place wants to be. Feels upscale in atmosphere (and price) but doesn't deliver as a real upscale restaurant; would be better if they didn't try so hard. Does have a nice feel and comfortable too. wait staff dressed up but service only OK. One page menu, a la carte and you pay for your drink refills.... More

Houston's is not a cheap place to get anything. However, it's not cost prohibitive if you are looking for high quality eats and top notch service. A 19.00 salad is a test to anyone's pocketbook but...it is the best salad around. Chicken lime with a superb dressing and crispy tortilla strips. It may be called southwest chicken... anyway, it isn't... More
