Ah, Houston's....what do they serve that ISN'T always good and consistant? The Hawaiian Ribeye is wonderful...probably my favorite entree. The spinach artichoke dip could be a meal in itself! Customer service is nearly always top notch (save my last visit there - the server's mind was elsewhere). The fresh squeezed orange juice makes for a nice screwdriver at brunch and the atmosphere is dark wood and dim lighting. My only complaint is that they took my and my fiance's favorite item, the Biltmore chicken sandwich, off the menu. :(

The wait is long, but worth it, get there early for lunch 10:30 - 11:00 or dinner 3:00 - 4:30 p.m , but food is great, steak is excellent, Try to avoid weekends or your wait is very, very, long. Romantic setting, not really for kids, so not a family resturant. Menu is not family friendly.

I never understood why the people in Memphis stnd in line to eat this high-priced junk....never....and it's not special (menu)!
Only easily impressed buffoons spend their money on this type of chain, uninspired food !
Who cares about salads ?? You normally go for the entree, right?

Chain food, rush you in rush you out. In my view only idiots would wait in the lobby over thirty minutes to eat this fare, but if you don't know any better, you might think this stuff is gourmet cuisine, it's NO big deal here, whether in Memphis or in Lenox Square in Atlanta...same ole same ole

...always consistant, even though the server was snooty this past time. I wanted to add a salad to my meal (cheaper that way) and give it to my daughter to eat (12 yrs. old), and the server barked that is not allowed and the person who orders it must EAT IT! HUH??? It's my food, honey! Also noticed my rib serving was slightly smaller than in the past.

We don't have a Houston's in the Charlotte area, but I have had wonderful meals in the Atlanta location. This was extremely disappointing: Quoted 15-20 minutes wait; Sat in cold lobby for 35+; Very limited menu (unless you like beef); Server OK; Ordered salmon - nothing special; vegatables were burnt and cold. Need I say more?

a late friend of mine used to refer to this place as an ""over-rated sandwich shop"". the wait, service, and food is placed way to high on the pedestal for the price. if you like spending your hard earned money for less than average quality, this is hte place for you.

My family has dined here for approximately 16 yrs. It is just great to get away for good food since we live in a small town about 100 miles away. Our last trip was a little disappointing. I love the prime rib. In the past, the size was always very nice. This time the cut was about one third the normal for your restaurant. I beg you. Please don't change.
We want to experince the same portions. I don't mind the expense .

During past two visits to Houston's, we have been impressed with consistency of the food, and its high quality. The ribs are particularly wonderful! The dinner salad, for $4, is almost a meal in itself, and can easily be shared by two, prior to the main course.

The best 'thing' at Houston's is the service, the Hawaiin steak (medium), and the Pork Chop butterflied.
The service is truly second to none.
A true steak lover never gets a steak well done and if cooked properly, the steaks here are the juiciest. True, i have been served a medioce staek once, but never twice. I guess it depends on the cook.
The ambience is exceptional and the wait speaks fo itself. The people you run into and hob nob with are of the best that Memphis has to offer. The parking lot looks like a car show of excellence. Just the feel of being in tht restaurant is worth the outing and once again the food is exceptional.

If you've never dined at a Houston's restaurant, then you have to at least give it a try. Even though this is a ""chain"" restaurant, the menus do vary. Their service is always outstanding--guaranteed. The food is great & often changing (at least some of the details). There can be a wait if you decide to go during the weekend & maybe some weeknights, but I think you'd find that at any good restaurant. I don't recommend the restaurant for children, but it is an excellent place for a night out.

This place is a masterful ""chain""..brilliant in standardization...awful in imagination...and the place is NOT cheap...and the wait?? the place is not worth standing in line like cattle..I've heard people say things like: ""but they have great salads!"", yeah right, what idiot goes to ""dinner"" and actually orders ""a salad"" for an entree...
You've got to be dumb as a box of rocks to buy into the notion that ""Houston's"" deserves some kind of award, for being another ""chain"". It's expensive, fair, ""chain-like"" food, that's all
