The most amazing meal tonight. The Halibut was the best we have ever had in North America.
The NY Strip was cooked to perfection.
Service was spot on. Our waiter was so attentive and took wonderful care of us. I would recommend recommend Houston White to all. You won’t be disappointed.

Wow - another great dinner at Houston White and if it is possible - its eve better then last year. Crab Cakes and Scallops were to die for. Wine list continues to be fantastic. Owner was there checking on everyone and manager was there constantly wiping down tables and items that were on tables. Great experience.

Some of the charm and professionalism of the restaurant post pandemic has vanished with waiters that are not as experienced or attentive. Hopefully as the time goes on the restaurant will gain back what in my opinion made it the best steak restaurant in the Rehoboth Beach area. Bring back the great callosal shrimp! Love the owner.

Couldn’t wait to get back to HW for a petite filet and potatoes. Darn! A big change in menu. We liked the appetizer choices and the entrees: all the same price. Great idea. Steaks are now a choice of 3 big sizes and a “set “ of veggies. Total price = $65!
Had the duck which was perfectly cooked. Lentils not so great. The halibut was amazing! Best ever.

Service was great and all of our steaks were cooked perfectly. Sides were great as well, with the mushrooms being the star. Excellent bread pudding for desert as well. Will keep going back. Best steakhouse in LSD in my opinion.

16 oz Ribeye was all gristle and was inedible. Oyster appetizer was flash-fried and not fresh. Overall, we have had excellent meals at Houston White, but this experience was just awful. It's shocking that my husband's steak would have even left the kitchen since it was just fat on a plate. The chef should have never tried to serve that particular cut and should have had the sense to choose another one. With this being the off-season, mostly locals frequent this establishment and they should be aware that we are not visiting for a weekend. We were excited for a go-to steak place in Rehoboth, but this particular meal left us all hungry.

We frequent Houston White but had never celebrated Valentines Day there. The service, cocktails, appetizers and entrees were all delicious which can be tough to pull off on a holiday like that. The menu was paired down for the holiday and our favorite steak was not on it but we were still extremely happy with all of our choices. We will be back.

I know, love, and cook decent steaks. However this was a bad experience with a fatty, very expensive Delmonico cut ribeye. I expected much better service and quality for the price and number of stars. Nobody ever offered me pepper and I couldn't find it anywhere - ended up mistaking the brown salt for pepper (I don't eat salt). Killer was the steaks were thin and fatty for $$$$, otherwise I would have had a much different review.

Houston/White is truly an outstanding steak house and it always is special night when we dine there—-from cocktails to lobster bisque to steaks....
Although we recently chose this venue for Valentines Day and once again it confirms my thought to avoid even the best restaurants on holidays....
Felt rushed, kind of lacked the regular personal touch, filete was served cool, not hot...
Just a mediocre holiday dinner experience, but I underscore that our visit this week dies not diminish our live for the restaurant——just avoid the ‘bums rush’ of the holiday encounter.....

Great food, but way over priced. They charge for condiments too!! Crazy crud. If it was on the water - overlooking the water, maybe it would have been better. Our waitress failed too. There was a waiter that served one table over, that blew her away. Sorry, not coming back.

This was our first visit and to be fair it was on Valentine's Day and Houston's had a special menu and was crowded. We both enjoyed our steaks and the service was perfect. I'd say Houston's is the best steakhouse in downtown Rehoboth and is comparable to 1776 at Midway on Rt. 1. We'll certainly return again.

Let me preface this by saying I am from NY where quality steakhouses are a dime a dozen. The food here is good but not on the same level. The menu is very limited. Not the same menu shown on Open Table and not a single steak with a bone which my husband likes. We were there on a Saturday night and it took over an hour to get our food. As for service, we were seated promptly but it took a while before anyone even came over to us. The server was very nice and apologetic once she came over. She even brought us a complementary Caesar salad but I don't like Caesar salad so a refill of wine would have been appreciated more. This being said, the choices for a steakhouse in Rehoboth are limited. If I went back it would be on a week night.

A perfect night, made perfect by excellently prepared food , knowledgeable and fun staff, and an invested manager. We shared the fromage plate, which had wonderful flavors. The entrees were perfect, but the Louisiana fried chicken was of special note. This meal should be a regular on the menu. Clearly the best chicken entree around. We were talked in to the carrot cake and loved it! Thanks to Sarah, Meghan, Petey and Joey. Magic night.
