“Great food that never disappoints!”
Reviewed 23 April 2014 via mobile

The food here is awesome! The staff is courteous and food comes out hot and correct. It's hard to recommend one item as the whole menu is great. It has a great steak house atmosphere. The sushi is top notch with a great selection of fresh ingredients. It gets busy at lunch but is definitely worth the short wait. I highly recommend Houston's for a business lunch that impresses.

“Good booze”
Reviewed 14 April 2014

The bartenders, Mike and Jessica, are the best. Always a good time when there. Oh, and the steak is pretty good, too.

“And they don't even have utensils to go!!”
Reviewed 12 March 2014 via mobile

It wasn't the Houston's they used to be. The menu selection was short and lacked variety. I went with a friend and she brought her 10 year old daughter. They don't have a kid's menu. Go figure. The waitress saw us a total of 3 times. 1, to take the order, 2 to give us our food, and 3 to take the plates and give us the check....okay 4. Very shallow and fake. Didn't get a warm sincere feeling. The daughter ordered a hot fudge sundae to go. There were no utensils or napkins. When we asked for them, she said that we were more than welcome to go to Johnny Rockets to get that. Umm.... so I can get a $10 meal next door with plastic ware but with my $79 dollar meal, I can't even get a napkin let alone a spork. Oh and be sure to ask for the ingredients of your meal. My friend bought a noodle salad with fish and it came with a boatload of macadamia nuts. It wasn't listed on the menu. Thank God she wasn't allergic. I liked the music, the restroom, and the ambiance.

“Love their ribs- everything is delicious!”
Reviewed 4 March 2014

This restaurant is one of our favorites. In fact, we now have a tradition of going there on Christmas eve. It's pricey, but the food is worth it. I love the ribs- it's spoiled me for anyone else's! My daughter thinks that their Caesar salad is the ultimate! Service here is good and I understand that the Sushi (one of the newer items on the menu) is excellent. It is crowded, so I recommend going early if you can. Love, love, love this place! But several years ago when my daughter was young, there wasn't much on the menu for her, but she is picky. If you have picky kids, either dine without them or wait until they're a little older. If they're not that picky, then they should be fine with a burger or something.
