My absolute favorite chicken tortilla soup - smoothy, creamy and no peppery after bite, coleslaw - don't even look at the calorie count because it is that good and different than any other restaurant's, and buttermilk garlic salad dressing that puts plain olde ranch dressing to shame! It's so hard to choose between the french dip, fall-off-the-bone baby back ribs,... More

I have eaten and drank in this wonderful jewel in Manhattan Beach Todd (the smaller) is at least 'telepathic'. Overall, this retreat is just that. Great bar, great sushi, great ambience and an oasis in socal!

I've eaten most items on the menu and everything is fresh amd prepared well.If you like cobbler and walnuts Apple Walnut Cobbler is yummy! My only slight would be... More

There used to be a Houston's in Century City where I work so got to go a few times each month. Now, I only go on random occasions to other locations a few times a year. I went to this location yesterday for lunch. I think their French Dip sandwich is the best there is. Their cheeseburger is very good... More

Houstons, has been at this location for quite some time. However, it is clean, kept up, the staff is friendly, the menu changes, and the food is very good. I ordered a martini and the hawaiian rib eye. delicious. My started with a special sushi roll, and had a steak salad. What is nice, is the consistency. You know what... More

Very good restaurant to celebrate special occasions, but not a good restaurant for kids. Bar like dark atmosphere. Noisy. My younger brother-in-law likes the cheeseburger and Caesar salad. My older brother-in-law tried the beef dip sandwich which came with a small salad. He liked it. They had a glass of the Abita Light beer, which they liked. My wife had... More
