We are great Houstons' customers, love the food and service is usually great, last evening we had stone crab appetizer and then had ribs, what we missed was a warm towel or finger bowl to rinse off, first the crab, then after the ribs, in

I love eating at this restaurant. The food is delicious, seriously, the best in town. Great place to see friends or good people watching. Very clean restaurant, very fresh food. Beautiful setting on the lake. Highly recommend.

If I were a millionaire, I'd eat at Houston's every day. :)

The atmosphere, service and food is superb.

Everything --appetizers, main course, dessert, wine -- is just perfect. Also, they don't charge a corking fee if you bring a bottle that is not served in-house.

I left happy and ready for my next visit!

I love Houston's. After our first visit, it immediately became our GoTo spot for celebrating deals or schmoozing new clients. Honestly, I'll look for any excuse to visit Houston's, it's just that good of an experience.

The first thing you notice at Houston's is the incredible design of the building. It has an open ceiling which reveals wood beams that reach outward and upward over a lake. A glass partition is the only barrier between diners and the waterfront. A pathway leads out to a dock and I witnessed nearby residents arriving in their boat (hell yeah!)

The kitchen is open and reminiscent of Hell's Kitchen with lots of cooks buzzing about. And the food is always fresh and delicious. Beware, popular dishes sometimes run out -- like their to-die-for NY strips.

Overall, a wonderful dining experience with upscale food in a casual, yet tremendous, setting.

Houston's in Winter Park Florida has always been a favorite of mine. The food is great and the service is good most of the time. I usually order one of their tasty burgers and fries and on special occasions I'll order some of their mouth-watering barbecued baby-back "fall of the bone" ribs. Some great appetizers to look for are the spinach artichoke dip and chips and the smoked salmon which comes with crackers and tartar sauce.
The entrees and appetizers are pricey but it's worth it. My only complaints is that it's often very crowded and you have to wait a while to be seated. The service is usually good but once in a while your food takes longer then usual to get to you.
In conclusion, Houston's is a wonderful restaurant and is perfect for dates and other special occasions (such as birthdays).

Pros: Great entrees and appetizers

Cons: Long waits on busy days, service is sometimes slow, often crowded and as a result it's hard to find a place to park.

Great service in a very casual atmosphere. The food is always tastey and never is cooked and or prepared differently. Consistent taste! Prompt service on weekends tend to be slow for seating and food! Price is worth the taste and quality of food.

The guy that did not know how to write in anything but capital also knows nothing about taste. Houstons will be around alot longer than Flemings. Everyone I know that has eaten at Flemings says its "OK" but nothing special. Your probably some little yuppie s-c-u- m who thinks they know something about flavor when you don't even have a pallet. By the way, its Flemings not Roy Flemings. Your probably the same Loser who thinks Del Frisco is better than Ruth's because Jonathan Morgan hangs out there. Flippin HubDub. Heres the official Roy Flemings website just in case your interested you dunce.

P.S. I don't even like Key Lime pie but Houstons Key Lime pie is bar none the best of the best

ATMOSPHERE WAS GOOD, BUT (AND THIS IS A STRONG BUT!!!!)
THE MAIN COURSE TOOK TOO LONG TO GET TO OUR TABLE (45 MIN; I CANCELLED MY ORDER)
PRESENTATION WAS ON THE AVERAGE OF AN OUTBACK STEAKHOUSE.
THE TASTE (ACCORDING TO MY DATE) WAS "NOTHING SPECIAL".
MY ADVICE IS SAVE SOME MONEY AND GO UP THE ROAD TO ROY FLEMINGS.
THIS WAS MY FIRST AND LAST VISIT.

Went here for dinner last night after reading some yelp reviews and had a great meal. We started off w/ the smoked salmon appetizer which a huge portion and really tasty. I ordered the thai steak salad (w/ avocados, mango, noodles, peanuts) which was really good but very spicy so be careful. My bf order the ny strip w/ mash potatoes and a side of cole slaw ? everything was awesome, we definitely overate but I don?t care, it was all really good. Service was fast and friendly.

Have tried the eggless caesar salad, chili, burgers and fries. All were excellent. Ambience was terrific, service is friendly and efficent. Crowded much of the time however due to its popularity.

This is a very nice place in downtown Winter Park. The food is terrific. Our group ordered across the map...seafood, meat, vegetarian and all were thrilled with their food. The desserts I hear are delicious as well, but I couldn't tell you as I was stuffed. The service was terrific taking care of all our requests (which admittedly were a bit much) with a smile. The atmosphere is wonderful as well giving all tables a nice view of the lake behind the restaurant and the huge oaks in the back. Wonderful restaurant!

Not worth the time, and that is if you can find parking. Typical chain fare, extremely overpriced, and poor service. Server both aloof and rude, food (ribs) were cold upon delivery, as were drink glasses empty for a majority of the meal. Many vacant tables on the floor, with a 30 minute wait; this place screams of poor management. View was good - but there are plenty of places you can watch a sunset and not pay $30+ per person. Orlando has many great restaurants for a romantic meal, this is not one of them.

My wife and I love this place. The food is always great and you just can't beat that view of the lake. Try the knife and fork ribs, they just fall off the bone, the artichoke dip is a favourite too. They have managed to get the price at just the right level for this kind of restaurant unlike some of the other steak places that are around Winter Park which are WAY over priced.

The location is great, the ambiance is typical of the Houston's chain. But the quality is still consistently good. Love this place. Only downside is it is not an atmosphere for large families yet there were a lot of kids. Great bar too.

My boyfriend & I had heard very good things about this restaurant. So we went there with high hopes. First, the restaurant provides only about 20 spaces that you can self park. Those were completely full so we had no choice but to use the 'complimentary' valet. Which you HAVE to tip them as they wait by the door. So that 'complimentary' cost us $10 to park. Then we decided to order the Hawaiian Ribeye steak with fries & a salad. The service was wonderful & the salad was delicious. But when the steak & fries came they were both very greasy. The steak was 1/2 fat(literally) and the fries were soggy. So $73 later we left hungry. I don't recommend it. (at least not the steak or fries)

We found Houston's simply by getting lost looking for a restaurant while staying at the Orlando Airport. Driving thru Orlando right after Charley, not much was open and we continued on. Found Houston's by accident and were glad we did. My Crab Cakes were devine (best since Maryland) and my husband's steak was one of the best he's ever had. Food was plentiful, beautifully presented and the staff was young, eager and energetic. Lovely to look at view (over lake - although littered with fallen oaks). Not for the tight wallet, but well worth the price. We self-parked (handicap plates got us right up front).

Be careful of the martini olive toothpicks - they could be used as pole vaults (but the martinis were great!)

If we could get lost again, we'd certainly go back to Houstons.

My husband and I eat here frequently and now have begun to bring our child on Sunday's. Sometimes there is an awfully long wait on Friday & Saturday nights so you need to go early if you want to avoid that but thats a sign of a well liked restaurant. Service is always good and food is very tasty. Never had a bad meal. At night it has very romantic lighting. Its not the quietest place but the seating arrangements allow you to have some privacy from your neighbors. Overall always a great experience. Do use the Valet parking its much easier.

This is one of the few restaurants located on a lake in Orlando. Out of that grouping, it definitely has the best... and most romantic... setting. With a glass of wine and good company, the sunset view is breathtaking!

Great atmosphere and exceptionally professional front-of-house (especially for Orlando). The right crowd. Very busy on dinner Fri/Sat..just order a glass of wine from the bar and relax on the side patio. Great Ribs - Hamburgers - Tasty vegetable plate and salads - Desserts. Also a good place for weekend lunch. Valet is generally a necessity.

I love this place. Not only is the food always very very good, but the service and ambience takes the cake. It is normally busy but there is a bar to sit at or you can take your drink out on the the dock and watch gaze at the lake. I recommend the artichoke dip and the prime rib. Happy eating!

Houston's is likely the most reliable restaurant around. The service is always spectacular and the food speaks for itself, you have to try it... there is something for everyone who loves a good American dish. I know I can count on Houston's to be great everytime.

Unless you go early or late, expect a considerable wait for a table---but you won't mind the wait on a nice evening. Grab a drink from the bar, slide into one of the Adirondack chairs outside on the wraparound patio, and enjoy the breeze…
