The wait was too long with children, so we decided to order to go. After waiting 15 minutes, we were then told it was too late for orders to go!! Food here is usually great, but the service at the front door is terrible. If we would have been told about the timing on the to go order from the... More

I am a HUGE Houston's fan and experienced my first epic failure with them with regard to service. I have turned on dozens of people onto their French dip as it is the best I have ever had. Unfortunately, I wanted one to go before heading to LAX and was told they don't take call ins but the bartender would... More

A group of six of us landed in at the height of noon hour on a busy Saturday while in conference at the nearby Marriott. Staff were able to seat us immediately. Service was very fast and friendly. We'd let them know we had limited time, and they really worked to make sure that our meals were timely. The Thai... More

My absolute favorite chicken tortilla soup - smoothy, creamy and no peppery after bite, coleslaw - don't even look at the calorie count because it is that good and different than any other restaurant's, and buttermilk garlic salad dressing that puts plain olde ranch dressing to shame! It's so hard to choose between the french dip, fall-off-the-bone baby back ribs,... More

I have eaten and drank in this wonderful jewel in Manhattan Beach Todd (the smaller) is at least 'telepathic'. Overall, this retreat is just that. Great bar, great sushi, great ambience and an oasis in socal!

I've eaten most items on the menu and everything is fresh amd prepared well.If you like cobbler and walnuts Apple Walnut Cobbler is yummy! My only slight would be... More

There used to be a Houston's in Century City where I work so got to go a few times each month. Now, I only go on random occasions to other locations a few times a year. I went to this location yesterday for lunch. I think their French Dip sandwich is the best there is. Their cheeseburger is very good... More

Houstons, has been at this location for quite some time. However, it is clean, kept up, the staff is friendly, the menu changes, and the food is very good. I ordered a martini and the hawaiian rib eye. delicious. My started with a special sushi roll, and had a steak salad. What is nice, is the consistency. You know what... More
