Excellent dining experience. Almost 2 hour wait, but well worth it. The food was exquisite. The service was top notch and because it was our anniversary our meal was discounted.

We stopped in when on the prowl for something to eat in Memphis on a Sunday evening, Everyone from that part of the city was there...don't people eat at home on Sunday? After an hour wait (we didn't have a reservation) we did get seated and had a very good meal. I'm not sure that I would categorize it as... More

Always a good time and food is always good.we have decided to make reservations early in the afternoon sometimes instead of coming up and hoping for a seat at the bar.

Not great for.business meeting due to the low lighting. The service is great and the food is fantastic. I come here often. The best time is mon-Thursday between 1-3:30. After the lunch rush and before the dinner rush. The steaks are unmatched and the salads is excellent. The fish is also popular.

Great food great service equals one of the best restaurants in the Memphis area. I've ordered several menu items and have never been disappointed. The prices are a bit pricey so be prepared,but I don't mind when the food and service is this great. Highly recommend to eat here but beware because you will keep coming back.

I eat at Houston's when I am back in Memphis from overses. My wife is a vegetarian and the vegetarian burger is one of the best vegetarian burgers that my wife and I have had out. The service is always spot on. I also enjoy the roasted artichokes as an appetizer. It is a must stop when in Memphis.

I'm a big fan of Houston's! If you go on the weekends definitely plan to make reservations. Spinach Artichoke is always a good choice appetizer. I ordered the chopped salad and fries (a must). Also a favorite is the chicken tenders, the best I have ever eaten!! Had the key lime pie for dessert. Always excellent service!!

Decided to take my wife here for her birthday. I have heard good things about it so I wanted to give it a shot. Service was excellent so that was a plus. The food was the let down. My prime rib was not a very good cut and was over cooked for what I asked for. The flavor was nothing... More

Don't eat there and not try this dessert, it's amazing. It's the crowning achievement on a restaurant that consistently churns our amazing food. Spin/Artichoke dip, the Ribeye, and the grilled fish are always worth it!
