“Overpriced And Awful Service”
Reviewed September 15, 2013

We went back a second time before I wrote this review but the results were the same. The main issue with Houston's in Houston is that their staff acts as if they are doing you a favor by seating and serving on you. With the sky high prices for their only above average food, they should be the best staff in town. But they are one of the worst. By the time we finally received our bill and then waiting forever for my credit card to be returned, I was fuming. I will not be back.

“Go Early”
Reviewed August 29, 2013

Again our monthly visit to Houston's.Always good.This time I wend with my oldest daughter and we had a great time. I had a steak which was perfect.
We always try to go between 5-530 on a weekend.Or earlier.Good luck getting a table after 6 pm.Since they accept no reservations It can get up to 45 min.wait.
The bar is great.Quality drink mixing.

“Just Good Quality Experience”
Reviewed August 22, 2013

Houston's provides a quality experience that is pleasant to enjoy time after time. Great menu is complimented by great service and professional cooperation amongst all the staff. Crab cakes stuffed with crab meat, end cut prime rib still medium rare and delicious tuna salad followed on the table with an apple, walnut and ice cream dessert. Highly recommend.

“Worth a visit to Houstons on Kirby”
Reviewed August 16, 2013

Came here recently with family. Not the usual branch we go to in Houston but worth the detour. Great service and food. The crab cakes are a must and for dessert, the chocolate brownie is the only chocolate dessert I order anywhere. Also, great margaritas!

“Nice restaurant, but pricey”
Reviewed July 24, 2013

Houston's is a nice restaurant and service was excellent, but $60 for an appetizer, 2 burgers and a fish sandwich is a bit much for lunch.
