This is a nice upscale restaurant. The food is really good but the menu is somewhat limited. The best place to sit is outside next to the intercoastal. Be prepared though for an expensive meal

Always busy. Don't love the fact that they do not take reservations but after a terrible experience with a restaurant up the street recently, they saved the day. Have never had a bad meal there.

Yes, it cost a lot, but it was worth every penny. My husband and I splurged for lunch yesterday at Houston's on the Intracoastal Waterway in Pompano Beach. He had never been and I hadn't been in many years. Our server, Kathryn, couldn't have been nicer or better at her job. The food was to die for. We began with the Stone Crab claws and the grilled artichoke appetizers. Both were delectable. The artichokes (three halves) were grilled and moist with oil and infused with a flavor we've never experienced before that is from the wood used to grill them. Then, we shared a lamb steak (yes, you read right: steak) with broccoli with sharp, fresh-grated Reggiano (I think) on top and a loaded baked potato. What an incredible lunch. We were in hog's heaven. Then, we shared the brownie/ice cream dessert. We also had espresso which came in a regular coffee cup and filled the cups about 2/3 of the way. Very generous! We worried it might be too much caffeine, but we used the energy to go shopping afterwards. What an incredible experience! Can't wait to go back for a special occasion. (We sat inside because the weather was so nice, it was difficult to get an outside table.) I can't tell you how wonderful it was! We had a ball.

Have dined here several times and this visit was the least impressive.
The food is excellent, well-presented and very tasty. On this occasion the service was just OK, as me and my guests commented, it seemed as if we had been pre-qualified by our server as not being good-tippers or big spenders and he just seemed uninterested.
When paying over $150 for dinner I expect staff to at least give us the impression of being interested in our dining experience.
As other reviewers have commented, yes it is busy and noisy, but if you want a good steak it really is very well prepared.
