I've gone to Houston's in Atlanta for over 35 years. Sad to say, this might be my last time. I have always liked their high standards, and almost arrogance in the their adherence to arbitrary "rules" they have. Today, I realized their high standards are...to suit their circumstances. No COVID precautions. I saw the waitress just wipe off the menus with a dirty rag. Really? You can't just hand people disposable menus? No social distancing guidelines. But God forbid you ask for decaf coffee or fries to go.....then you get the answer that they can't do that because it doesn't suit Houston's standards. The restaurant was also dirty. Sad.More

I've sadly see this restaurant take a steep decline in overall experience in the last few years and especially since Covid. This used to be a place where everyone knew your name, dress code was adhered to, and the staff was incredibly gracious. This is...no more. I have had multiple terrible experiences in the past year and will not be going back. My extended family, friends and I have been loyal patrons since this restaurants opened. Now most staff I encounter is rude, and the food is overpriced for that kind of service and beyond casual attire/atmosphere.More

Salads were great! Big disappointments were that they did not have the apple cobbler dessert or the chicken tenders. Server handled our disappointment well.

Short and sweet! Those of you who know this restaurant will understand. They NO LONGER offer the prime rib ...shocker! Not only do they still have a limited menu, but they CHANGED the Cesar salad. No longer is it prepared with Romain lettuce as every...Cesar does, but now they prepare it with, I guess, Kale......and corn in it. It's terrible to say the least. Who's bright idea was that??? Thats like saying they changed their roast beef to being prepared with fish! Not happy! Beware those of you that things have changed and not to the good. BRING BACK THE TRADITIONAL CESAR and Prime Rib. Don't change what makes you $$.More

Just returned from lunch today, we sat in the bar area, there was a problem with my Hawaiian steak, a bit on the fatty side, but after eating the "meaty" part, I just casually mentioned this to my server, she asked what I'd like to...have instead, I said that's okay, just wanted to let you know...no need for anything else. Well, when she returned with the check, and without my asking, they'd removed the entire steak-charge from our bill. WOW! What service! Now I remember why it's one of my favorite dining spots in Atlanta!More

My husband has been wanting to take me to this restaurant for years and we finally made it to Atlanta and Houston’s. It was as wonderful as he reported! I had the burger, cooked to medium rare perfection, and my husband had the sweet and...sticky ribs. My favorite part of dinner, however, was the cole slaw! I ordered it with hesitation as it is usually bland and sodden with mayonnaise. Oh yum! Both of us lapped it up. The service was lovely as well. Wish we lived closer to one of their restaurants!More

Service here is terrific. Food is excellent. Always a tough table. But always worth the wait. My son is celiac and they do a good job with him. Can cool a delicious burger non-binary and the French fries are in a dedicated frier so not...contaminated with gluten.More

Did you know they filter their water to make it taste soooo good! Everything is made in house even the ketchup. Totally the best place off 75 if headed to Atlanta without parking issues and traffic. Is off and easy back on 75. Free parking....Gets crowded so make reservations or ask to set in bar area but have to get on a list for that too. Food- veggie burger best ever!!’ Steaks on the mark and all sides perfect.More

Service here is fantastic. The burger is tremendous. Good craft beers on tap. The menu is wider than i know, but i just know the burger is phenomenal. So i don't really need to know the rest of the menu.
