Great food and service. My friend and & I stopped for dinner before a performance at a local university. They had a special events menu. We had the broiled cod. It came with salad bar, soup, rolls, potato, baked squash. The broiled cod was amazing! As was their signature chicken dumpling soup. Everything was very good.

I'd love to comment on the food. It it never came!!! Waited 40 minutes and no apology - the excuse was that several big tables were seated before us. Wait staff couldn't care less. We will never be back!!

My wife and I had dinner at Houghtons'. Prices are very reasonable and servings are generous. However, the quality of the food was just okay. The chef struggled to get our pork chops cooked properly so we had to send them back to the kitchen twice. They were clearly undercooked which was disappointing.

Stopped here with our son for a late night meal after we arrived at his house for a visit. The food, we had reubens, which had very good flavor, though there could have been more meat between the pieces of bread.
