I absolutely loved it and would even go so far as to say it is a new favorite restaurant. It was nice to have a date night with just the two of us, and the servers at Houston's helped to make it very enjoyable. Our waitress was fantastic, the food was phenomenal. My only regret is not saving room for dessert.

Prime rib is not always consistent in texture, but it is usually soft enough and, if we were truly upset, our wait staff person would take care of it promptly. We prefer not.

The service is good without being intrusive, the food is good and the spacing of the tables provides enough privacy for conversations. The noise level is moderate which is both good and bad. There is enough background noise to allow conversations to be private but sometime a little too noisy to allow for quiet conversation. Definitely on my "go-to" list for business lunch.

Hands down the best ribs ever! We were disappointed that they didn't have the signature grilled artichoke appetizer but the food did not disappoint. Ribs in Memphis - you can't go wrong.

This time it wasn't as tender and tasty as usual. A small serving of mashed potatoes and a large serving of broccoli were served on the side. The potatoes were OK, but the seasoning of the broccoli was strong and off-putting. The house salad that we began our meal with was nothing special. No bread is served at Houston's. My companion and I both had the same meal and our opinions were the same. For desert, we ordered the brownie and key lime pie. Both were delicious. I will return again for the Prime Rib in hopes that the same excellent quality as in the past will be served.

My friend sent her undercooked tuna salad back twice. We had to beg for a wine cooler to keep our champagne chilled. Service was amateurish at best. Reluctant to return any time soon

Had to ask a second time for condiments we had ordered and found the side serving for one of our dishes a bit meager. Again surprising. Hope this a one time experience.

Over the last couple of years both have declined and unfortunately for me I think my New Years Eve dinner there will be my last. Shame on them for allowing their food and service to no longer be in accordance with their prices or ambience.

We all ordered the Crispy Chicken Club Salad. I found only two very small chicken tenders in my salad as did my friends. Not a good value at $16. They've also done the same with the prime rib sandwich. Probably half the meat as it used to be.

It feels like they forget your table. It's also strange how there is a 45 min wait but so many empty clean and unclean tables open, maybe not enough servers? Every time we go b/c our youngest really likes the chicken fingers, we say we will not come back. Think this past visit is our final one.
