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!

Houston's consistently has excellent food and service. My husband and I always make a stop while in Memphis. It's obvious we aren't the only fans since Houston's is packed with customers each time we go.

Great! my daughter was in town just for these days. We want a convenient, nice atmosphere, great food and drinks place. Houston's was the perfect spot. Great attentive service from all staff and Manger. I had a Margarita, good but a little pricey. Grill salmon, salad, baked potato great. The houston's house dress the best. We had a very relaxing...

I have been going to Houston's for as long as I can remember. However, on our visit last night, I noticed several changes, and, not for the better. The house salad is still delicious, but much smaller than previously. I asked to substitute a baked potato, and was told that the potato counts as two sides, which usually come with... More

Stopped by for lunch, and tried the grouper. I was surprised at how good it is. Lightly battered and fried. Comes with Cole slaw and a greens salad. My wife Loved her cheese burger. The shock is $7 for a Stella.

We had a great lunch. The club salad was excellent with the creamy garlic dressing. Topped with fried chicken, it was a good choice for a lunch meal. The fried grouper sandwich was the best fish sandwich I have ever had. Nicely breaded filet topped with slaw, onion, and pickle. Large enough to share, it was almost too much. Comes... More

Excellent service, you will have to wait a time to be seated (15-25 min) but its well the wait. I you are not pleased accommodation are made immediately.
