We used to dine here all the time when we lived in Atlanta, and were hesitant to ruin the memories, but Houstons is as good as ever!! Great quality, very creative and fresh! The salads were awesome and the prime rib French dip is still the best!

I hadn't been to a Houston's in close to 20 years but nothing has changed. They still have top notch service and great food. The cocktails were very well prepared. I had an old fashioned that was delicious. The steak special was a 16 oz strip and it was very tender and perfectly cooked. We were a party of three... More

I was treated for my birthday to Houston's at this location. I felt rushed to order my food. I told the waiter it was my birthday and ask if they offered a complimentary dessert. He said they did, however he forgot to tell me you have to have reservation to receive the complimentary dessert after he charged my niece $9.00... More

The salmon here tastes like they went outside and caught it. What can I say the ambience is calming and excellent

Have been a patron of Houston's all over since first visiting the Nashville location (now closed) in early 1980's. Northside was the 1st location in ATL and remains a favorite.The menu offers a nice variety of starters, salads, sandwiches/burgers, soups, entrees, and desserts. The Frank Family Napa Cab is a nice choice by the glass. The Traditional salad has a... More

Very busy but service was friendly and fast. Sat at the bar and ordered and everything was wonderful. Had a prime rib dip with French fries and both fries and sandwich was the best I have ever had.

I've probably been to this restaurant more than one hundred times and each time is wonderful. My office is nearby, so Houston's is a perfect place for a business lunch. Avoid the wait by scheduling your lunch visit at 11:30 or 1:15. Otherwise, prepare to wait a bit for a table as this place is popular. Its popularity stems from... More

Was there for dinner and had a great meal! Haven't been to Houston's in about 4 years. Quality of the food is still the same--excellent. However, prices have gone up. We all had the BBQ Ribs. They were every bit as good as I remember them--as I say, the "Best Ribs in Atlanta". Sorry to say, the price has increased... More

Their BBQ pork ribs fall off the bone. We get one order with fries and slaw and split it between the two of us. Hot towels furnished when you finish.

Houston's has been around a long time and is still one of our favorites! The food is consistently good any one you go to and they do an excellent job hiring their weight staff. They always give excellent service! The food is always fresh and prepared in-house. Best kale salad anywhere, hands down. They have retained many of our favorites... More
