Houston's on Peachtree Road in Atlanta is a great place to go for delicious burgers, steaks, and much more. I really like the location and atmosphere here where you can really enjoy a well prepared meal. The staff here is very attentive and provides excellent...customer service.More

I frequent a lot of restaurants in different states, particularly Miami and Atlanta. I can honestly say it’s been a while since I received such service from the wait staff Sheylynn( I hope I’m spelling her name correctly, is definitely an assert to Houston’s. Tuna...Tatar was delicious ( new on the menu), steak, burger. Everything was great , but the service is what will make me return. Kudos!!!!!More

Pros: Good Service, nice atmosphere, awesome staff. Cons: Too many 'rules': can't order most salads & French Fries as to go items (very limited to go menu). Questionable 'policies and procedures' that seem discriminatory, bias and isolating. Controlling environment which takes away from the overall...culinary experience. Frustrations: If I want to order a sashimi tuna salad to go....let me order the damn salad. I was told this dish doesn't travel well. I'm a big girl and can make that call. Same with the french fries- If I want to order fries to go and reheat them...let me reheat the damn fries. Why are baseball caps not allowed but golf hats are? Why am I not allowed to use my phone...we live in the days of technology and as a professional, I should be able to multi-task while working and enjoying dinner. And please do everything you can to bring back the chicken batter used prior to covid. It is just not the same without those secretly famous chicken fingers. Not allowed to order a well done steak- I totally get that 'policy' . Very simply, not the same. Sadly, my 20 year love affair has come to an end.More

We ate here last Sunday lunch. Made a reservation and arrived 20 minutes early. They squeezed us in early. The service was impeccable. The food was great. Very cozy environment. I have been eating at Houston's for decades and it never disappoints.

While a bit pricey, we really enjoyed our meal and drinks. The ribs and burger were cooked perfectly and my wife's salad was yummy. My son said it was the best burger he's had...and housed the dessert! I liked that they don't want phones to...be used in the restaurant...that helps people to relate with each other and keeps the atmosphere peaceful. Thanks!More

Wasted 2 hours of my time in this establishment.......when you have an hour waiting time, let your customers know when they call to ask if they need a reservation. Don't say you can walk-in only to be told there's an hour wait for a table...when they get in the restaurant. I wasted 2 hours and we were still not given a table...2 hours and we were not able to actually eat. THIS RESTAURANT IS THE WORST!More

Twice the steak and food have been charred in the outside. The Thai salad, probably the best thing in their menu, not longer includes avocado. What a shame, this place has gone downhill while their prices keep going up. Please save your money. It is...definitely not worth it anymore.More

I was dining at this restaurant tonight and as soon as my party paid for our food the "manager" came by our table and just stood there staring at my child. After a few seconds of him not saying anything, I asked can I help...him and he said "yes, she is too loud and can she go outside". My baby is 8 months old! She is a BABY! We kept the pacifier in her mouth and he saw that. She was not loud where she was disturbing the peace in the restaurant. Matter of fact, there was no one around us for her to disturb! The whole other part of the restaurant was loud! I could not believe this manager had the AUDACITY to tell my 8 month old baby to go outside. I told him that he was being very rude and disrespectful and I feel like he pointed us out because we were black. There was a million of ways that he could have told us to quiet my baby down if he thought she was too vocal. If Houstons is a family friendly restaurant, they need to understand families will bring their babies but there is a way to do things when situations like this occur. I am pissed and will NEVER go back to this restaurant! I wish I could give this place 0 stars for their professionalism and racist manager.More

Let me start by saying I am a long-time fan of Houston’s. However, today might have been my last visit. The Thai steak salad, which is always delicious, has skyrocketed in price. As it is my usual order I did not look at the menu,...so my fault for not realizing the price had changed. But, $30 for a salad (which quite possibly was smaller and had even less steak than usual) is not worth $30. It doesn’t even include avocado anymore, so I had to pay extra to add avocado to my salad. I’m very disappointed.More

Have you ever eaten at a restaurant that will not allow you to order food to go? Well Houston’s won’t! Oh sure if you’d like a greasy hamburger or some ribs, you’re more than welcome however if you prefer better cuisine and some quality food...they will not allow you to take it out. After spending over $500 and way too much time here we discovered that we were not permitted to order food to go for our sick friend. Needless to say we will never be back Houston’s needs to close all of their doors not just the one by Lenox Ashley who claim to be the manager, came over with her whiny voice and told us that we can’t order that type of food because it won’t reflect the quality that Houston’s prefers their food to be known by. What a crock! This girl thinks she’s so much better than she is. I’ve eaten at restaurants all over the world and believe me Houston’s is way down on the list of quality establishments. Do yourself a favor and go to Maggianos. At least they appreciate your businessMore

My friends birthday, i made a reservation for 3. Our reservation was for 6pm!! My 2 friends arrived before for me when i left my car at valet and walked up to the door, you could smell weed, like someone was outside smoking. The valet...guy Johnathon stated it always smells like that. However; i proceed to walk in the building get to my friends who were at the host desk we told them we had reservations for 6pm and gave our name. A guy who stated he was the manager, asked us to step back outside until our table was ready so that we could air off, basically told us we smelt like weed. I assured the man that he was sterotyping- i asked him to remove his mask and walk outside his building. This made us very uncomfortable and not once did he offer any type of discount or anything!! Not happy at all; and will never return to this houstons again. Very rude manager!More

For starters, my mom ordered the spinach dip & I ordered the salad. They both were delicious. We both ordered the ribs & they were fall off the bone, melt in your mouth good. I’ve never had a bad experience at any location. Will definitely...be back!More

Ordered dinner and 2 spinach dips for me and 1 spinach dip for my mom and when they didn't bring my mom's out with her food and we asked about it they said it was too late and we couldn't have it because they don't...serve spinach dip to go and they would have to pack it up if she doesn't finish it. When we said that it was meant to go with her food and she will eat as much as she can, both the waitress and the manager had an attitude an refused to give her spinach dip. It was the weirdest hill to die on, but the effect was achieved I'm never going back.More

The place was getting busy as I ate. There was distancing between tables of diners. I had a chicken salad. It was pretty good and reasonably priced. Service could have been friendlier.
