“Great dining!”
Reviewed February 25, 2013

Love the atmosphere and the food! If you like the skinny shoestring-type fries, they are excellent! Ordered the plain hamburg patty (trying to cut calories) and it was not as expected. However my friend thoroughly enjoyed her salad.

“We never miss Houston's while in FL”
Reviewed February 15, 2013

As always, our most recent visit to Houston's did not disappoint. We look forward to dining here every time we are in town. Houston's has the BEST ribs of any restaurant I've dined at, including it's sister restaurant, the Palm Beach Grill.

The ribs are perfectly cooked, tender and falling off the bone, with just a slight "char" from the grill (not blackened by any means). The BBQ sauce is delicious and they will gladly bring you additional sauce upon your request. The loaded baked potato side dish is very large and very flavorful. Don't miss the 5 nut brownie a la mode for dessert. Even if you think you don't have room, you'll find it when you see this dessert!

The service is always excellent and we've been told by more than one server that it is due to their extensive training program. It is very nice not to have to ask for refills, or flag your server down from across the restaurant, however they are not intrusive and allow you to enjoy your meal.

Highly recommend Houston's, especially for the ribs. Make a reservation if you prefer to avoid waiting upwards of an hour. It has never been anything but busy, even during the week, in all the times I've dined there.

“Never Disappoints”
Reviewed February 13, 2013

We never have a bad meal or poor service here. The waitstaff here is amazing--engaging and knowledgeable. Love the grilled artichoke and my husband loves the teriyaki steak. Drinks are made with care--they made cheese stuffed olives for the martinis by hand. Great restaurant.

“Great food and ambiance”
Reviewed February 10, 2013

The decor and ambiance is great. The food is fantastic, steaks and crab cakes are awesome.
Skip dessert. None of their desserts are worth the calories or $$.
