We asked to be seated on the patio at Hillstone's, and the Maitre'D seated us, and a waitress came for our drink order, Then GB, assistant manager, and MW, Security Guard, said we weren't welcome at the restaurant. We were three gay men

Houston's is a delicious restaurant for lunch or dinner. I have had some great meals there with friends, family, colleagues, and clients. I would consider it upscale-casual... which, to me, is sort of an ideal combination. Not too uptight, and nice enough for a business lunch or a nice night out. They have a great bar area and wonderful appetizers as well... and they even have sushi, which I am very fond of. Also, their sandwich/burger rolls are baked on-site in their open kitchen so you can watch them pop out of the oven when you walk by... and they smell just as good as they taste. (delicious!!)

Huge bonus -- Houston's has free parking nights and weekends when you eat in the restaurant and park in the 60 State Street Garage. Since it is located in Faneuil Hall, it isn't the easiest place to park (or the cheapest area, by far), so take advantage!!

I've tried Houstons a few times now and have never left thinking i should go back soon. I think it's more of a tourist trap.. Personally theres so many other amazing restaurants in Boston that I'd rather go to. I probably won't be back or go out my way to go.

If you want a delicious burger in a restaurant with good prices and excellent service Houston's is the place to go. We usually go in the afternoon or weeknight evenings and it is not busy, so reviews that complain about waits and service problems may be due to the volume of customers.
Their garden burgers are enough to almost make you not miss the beef. The fish sandwich is also delicious. One of my favorite things about Houston's is that you can substitute fries for something like coleslaw, or cooked vegetables. They also cook your meat to your request and get it right.
Advice from my fiancee is that you shouldn't order a burger on a date. They are too messy and juicy to look neat eating them. We did have burgers on one of our first dates, and she is marrying me, so it clearly isn't a deal breaker.
Overall I really like Houston's for a good burger in a nice setting. Every server we have had has been excellent, and we really enjoy eating here.

Last week, my sister and I went to Houston's and sat at the bar. The bartender, Tracey, was awesome! She told us about their homemade lemonade and said it's great with Absolut Citron. Sign us up! We had two each. Delicious. Then, we had the grilled artichokes, which were EXCELLENT. They were served with an aioli. Today I called them because I was making them on the grill and asked the person who answered the phone what was in the aioli. After LAUGHING hysterically, she said, in the most SNIDE tone: "ummmm, we don't give out our recipes. ummmm no." then she laughed some more and hung up the phone. Ignorance and rudeness have no place in customer service, no matter how good the food is.

This is more of a "promise" than it is a review, because the "bait and switch" tactics of the Jekyll and Hyde hostess team successfully skewered my party of six before we even got to the front door. However, I promised them a full recap on this website, and I am a man of my word. A call to the Ms. Hyde hostess at about 5:15 on Saturday evening went like this: "We don't take reservations for a party of 6 but we can easily work you in with no more than a 15 minute wait if you call me back in 30 minutes; ME: "but I have been there before and I beleive that your boothes can accomodate us, especially since one member of my party is only 4 yrs old, and you take reservations for parties of 5". Ms. Hyde: "that's not at all necessary and you will be more comfortable in a "High Top" anyway; no need to give you my name since there are only two of us working and we can definately accomodate you.... 30 minutes later Dr. Jekyll answers the phone: There will be a 2 to 2 and one half hour wait; we can't help you, you talked to who???, what do you mean you didn't get her name; sorry sir, there is nothing we can do. The promise of a very frank review of my experience the next morning on this website (hence the "promise" mentioned above) got their attention, but it was fleeting and only got me a long wait on hold before I hung up. Since I was already in the car, I called King Fish which is only a couple of hundered yards away (by more like miles away when it comes to basic human consideration) and they happily took my reservation and seated my party promptly upon arrival. We had a nice relaxing dinner despite the early frustrating start. Where's the beef? it is clearly with the rigid and duplicitous staff at Houston's. I don't care how good the food is, if I need to be treated like cattle to get to it, it is simply not worth it. I will never return.

We did not get either good food or service at this restaurant. There are other restaurants in this area that you should try. This one is not worth your time!

I had lunch today at Houston's with my husband. I decided to try one of their simple grilled fish specials: cod topped with marcona almonds. The portion of the cod was puny, and it was covered by a tad too many Marcona almonds. Now, I love Marcona almonds--they hail from Spain and are the Rolls Royce of almonds--but they seemed an after thought on this dish. The micro portion of fish was accompanied by a bland side of sauteed spinach (where's the garlic?) The sticker shock happened only after I looked at the tab. My lunch-size portion of cod cost me a whopping $29! I felt robbed. $29 would have been pushing it even for a dinner entree. Lesson learned: never order "market price" without first inquiring about the price. I think we'll go elsewhere next time my husband meets me in town for lunch. By the way, the steak on my husband's Thai steak salad was tough, but my husband is loathe to complain about food at restaurants whereas I think it's important to provide feedback so they can improve. One would think that a steak house would at least get the steak right.

I have to say this place is absolutely outstanding. My wife and I go here EVERY Sunday and sit at the bar and have not only one of the best meals ever but outstanding service. Additionally whenever we want to celebrate an event with friends, this is the place to go.

The menu: Outstanding, your, what I would call typical, bar fair, that is anything but typical. The best all around tasting foods, salads with unique tastes w/o the "unique" price. Burgers that are so juicy and succulent. The BEST fries ever - shoestring but thiner with a hint of spice.

The service: which if any of you know me is the most important. EVERYONE is friendly and courteous and helpful. They hang up your jackets for your - help you sneak a bottle of champaign to your friends w/o them knowing to help celebrate an event, they are always smiling - just a GREAT bunch of people.

The restrooms are super stylish and clean!

The bar is nice and big, friendly. GREAT service

The location is awesome. Once you are done eating you can walk around Faniuel Hall.

Did I mention that the prices are NOT outrageous!

Parking - Park in a heated garage in the dead of winter at 60 State street and they validate - you cannot get any better than this place for a great dining experience in Boston!

Last night, a friend and I went to Houston's. We were seated at a table, ordered wine and appetizers. After we ordered our second glass of wine, the manager came to our table and said that our waiter had informed her we had not ordered dinner, just appetizers, and that it was their policy that dinner must be ordered when they had a wait list. She then asked us to move to the bar or leave, despite the fact we were still eating and drinking. We arrived early when there was no wait list and there was no mention of what we should order when we were seated. I've always thought I could order whatever I wanted when I went to a restaurant. This is apparently not true at Houston's, but I won't need to worry about it since I will never darken their door again.

The service was very friendly, and the ribs great! Unfortunately, the seats were made for taller people so i had to remove my shoes and sit on them (covered with my jacket)! Very nice to have the doors open after the colder weather.
Limited menu but had heard about the ribs, and was not disappointed!

I went to Houstons last weekend with a group of friends (guys and girls alike), and our experience was top notch. From the sweet greeter at the door to the adorable server, our time at Houstons was memorable.
The moment we sat down our server was near us, smiling ear to ear and absolutely down to earth--confident--and funny. We ordered the artichoke starter and then each had an entree (I had the RIBS---soooooo delicious!!), and the entire meal was flawless. My boyfriend ordered the NY Steak Strip and it was amazing... all of the staff present last Saturday seemed excited, energized, and high on life---it was a perfect group date!!!! I definitely will be back soon-----

This place is really great, especially for a chain restaurant & probably one of the only decent places to eat around Faneuil Hall. The bar area is a great place for after work drinks. They also have the BEST veggie burger I have eaten in my life - it's so good you won't even miss meat - it's not on the menu but if you order it they will make it. It's my favorite entree here. The downside is that the Boston branch of this chain has the most poor service ever - the waitress wasn't very vigilant about filling our waters and takes forever to come by and take additional orders or see if everything is going okay. I've eaten at the Boston one several times & have had poor service both times. Note: In San Francisco - the service & the food is excellent and it's one of my favorite places.

You need to try the ribs, it is a must. They are tender and fabulous. Also in terms of drinks, hands down the mojito is awesome.

Great food...definitely try the ribs (better than traditional bbq places in town). The drinks were good and had people lined out the door just to have a spot at the bar. Was there a couple months ago, so the weather was still nice and the doors to the patio were open with live jazz playing. 30-something crowd

My friends and I used to gather at Houston's after work for dinner and drinks. The last time we went is the last time I will ever go to Houston's! The food is great, I have to admit but the policies and staff are just ridiculous. My friend and I were out to dinner on a weeknight, and had a bill of over $100 as we had ordered apps., dinner and drinks. Another friend came to meet us over drinks and we were reminded three times that the only reason we were allowed to stay at our table was because it wasn't that crowded in the restaurant??!! As a result we ordered another appetizer so we would not be harrassed anymore about sitting in the seats we had been in for dinner. Then, feeling the pressure, we moved up to the bar and were asked by the security guard three times (!) to move from the area we were standing in because it was somewhat close to the dining tables. The bartender hadn't even handed us our drinks yet. We told him we had never been treated so rudely in a restaurant, and another girl not in our group, reminded him that the online reviews of Houston's have gone down the tubes. I have lived in MA all my life, and always will, and I will never set foot in this place again, and I will tell everyone how horrible and rude the policies at Houston's are. Open your eyes management! You are missing out on what used to be regular customers who feel they deserve some respect!

While I absolutely love the California burger and the spinach dip from this restaurant, the customer service at this restaurant is absolutely awful. First of all, every time I go there, they bring out my entree way before I have even had a chance to take more than one bit of my appetizer. They make no secret of the fact that they want you in and out of there as fast as possible. Secondly, last time I went there, I went with a group of seven friends. One of our friends only planned to have a quick drink and hang out. They REFUSED to allow us all to sit in a 6 person booth claiming that we would be "uncomfortable" and that it would affect their service to our group. When we responded that we would be more than comfortable sitting 7 people in a very roomy 6 person booth, they refused and we had to go somewhere else to eat. We could easily have fit 7 of us in their booth, but this restaurant doesn't care about customer service at all.

Like this place when I am in the mood for some good food and fun atmosphere. Great place to eat when you have been in fanueil for the day or are going out for the night in the area. Never had to wait very long. The jumbalaya is great!

I went to Huston's on a Saturday night with some girlfriends. We got right in with no wait and had a nice booth for the four of us. Our waitress came over and introduced herself then just walked away without a word. We wanted to order drinks but had to wait 10 minutes for her to come back. Once we finally got her back, she was very friendly and helpful with suggestions. She even brought one of the girls two samples of beer to try to see what one she liked before she ordered one. The food was good, but very overpriced. You could go to someplace with better food and service and spend the same amount. If you're going to go to a chain steakhouse, you're better off with the Capitol Grille. Overall, it was a fine experience but noting to rave about.

I recently went on a date to Houston's for the first time. Upon entering the restraunt we were greeted by an unusually friendly hostess and a scary metal horse sculpture, this was just beginning of the experience that is Houstons. The wait for only about 20 minutes. After just being seated we had already been waited on by 3 of the staff members, all of them were extremely friendly, almost too friendly, it was kind of weird. Our main waiter appeared out of no where and immediately expressed his happiness with the fact that we had already ordered drinks, because apparently that is rare to start off dinner with drinks. He then took our orders, he was able to sell me on what he basicly described as the "top secret salmon" which he made sound like was the only piece of salmon on the East cost. It turns out that the only thing special about the salmon was that it was the smallest thing i've ever seen. It did come with a baked potato which was pretty good, FYI Houston's, to my dissapointment, does not have a potato bar. While we waited for our food we observed the bizarre atmosphere inside Houston's. Besides the terrifying metal horse statue Houston's also offers scary lighting, a wall made of giant jenga pieces, and a drawer which pulls out of the kitchen area filled with only tortilla chips (you can't make stuff like this up). The food was pretty good, and after we had paid for the meal we had been waited on by a total of 9 Houston staff members, which I thought was pretty impressive. Im summary Houston's was definitely a one of a kind experience, which everyone should experience once while in Boston. I will go to visit Houstons again, although not soon, however my date vowed never to return.

I had heard good things about this place so I took my boyfriend there for his birthday. Everyone was really friendly and our server gave us the recommendations of the scallops and cioppino and we took them. I had the scallops. They came in this cream reduction sauce that was amzing and the scallops were incredible. My boyfriend LOVED his cioppino. So much seafood. I would definitely go back there again. The only downside of the evening was that we had to wait for a table for about a half an hour so I'd make a reservation if possible.

They came in this cream reduction sauce that was amzing and the scallops were incredible. My boyfriend LOVED his cioppino. So much seafood. I would definitely go back there again. The only downside of the evening was that we had to wait for a table for about a half an hour so I'd make a reservation if possible.

Pros: great food and service

Cons: wait for a table

Having been in Boston on an "aquisition search" we discovered Houstons - what a find, at first it looked like we were going to have difficulty being seated and really did not want to 'be at the bar' our hostess took such great care of us, she quietly and sweetly found us a table, took a genuine interest in us and provided information for how we could make the most of our time in town, the next time we went - last night - we had the same hostess, she took care of us like we were regulars, the wait staff was also great, only problem was the bar, kind of noisy / rude. We will come back when our business brings us back to Boston, thanks to Michaela our dear hostess quide, thanks to such a darling!!! Olivia and Comp!

Arriving first of a group of 5, approached the bar to order a drink. I was immediately "attended" to by one of the staff members and advised I could not block the (wide) pathway. I found a seat at the bar and shortly after two members of our party joined us. Within seconds they were advised they can't stand there . Finally we made it to our table (30 minutes after the reservation). The husband of one of the women joined us at the table after dinner. He ordered a drink and was advised of the policy "no baseball hats. We paid the tab, conversation was good and decided to order a 3rd round of drinks. We were advised that "since we paid the tab, we'd have to go to the bar for more drinks. It was 10:30 and nobody was waiting for a table. What a cold unfriendly place!

I am so happy I went here. The chicken salad was amazing and the little neck clam app. was fabulous and the spinach app. was yummy! The bar was busy with a very nice after work crowd and the food was amazing. The value was great and the restaurant itself was well worth every penny.

Houston's is overpriced, overblown and corporate. With all the phenomenal culinary options in this city, if you're going wait half the night for a table, then drop loads of money once you finally sit, at least opt for something special... something WORTH the wait and the expense. Also, I've dined here a handful of times and have always felt rushed, only adding insult to injury. Food was unimpressive at best. Friendliness from staff comes off as fake and somewhat pompous. DON'T BOTHER.

I love having lunch here, and boss always takes me!
But even better, I love the after work bar scene.
It is so poweful and sexy with all the people in power suits. It makes me feel important!

And the french fries are the best!

Wait was 1.5 hours on a Friday at 8 pm. Bar was very crowded. Starter was the spinach dip. At $12. Good, but not worth it. I had the ribs, my partner had the prime rib. Ribs were a full rack, but very short. The meat was quite good, but the sauce was more burned on. Meat did fall off the bone though. Redbones is much better and a better deal for ribs. Fries on the side were tiny, shoestring type. Not very good. It was $26, fries included. Prime rib was only OK. A nice enough cut, buy no seasonings whatsoever. Quality of meat was similar to one at Outback, Longhorn, etc. Definately not Abe & Louie's, Grill 23 quality by a long shot. Side of mashed potatoes were pretty good. $100 for dinner for 2, 1 drink each. I'll go to a real prime steakhouse next time.

We had a reservation so no wait (Friday). I was expecting a more extensive menu. It was listed as a "steakhouse" & but only 3 steaks on the menu, so that was disappointing. The ribeye (my favorite) had some crazy hawaiian stuff on it which didn't interest me, so I got the filet.

We got the clam app- very yummy. We also added salad & both of us were very pleased. My filet was definitely good- but I wasn't blown away. My husband got ribs & was *very* happy- very tender. We shared the apple cobbler which was also yummy.

The bar was nice- very hopping. Our table was very close to the bar, so it was kind of loud. It was hard to carry on a conversation.

Overall I'd say it was okay/good. Just wish they had a bigger menu. Ask for a table far away from the bar.

Ate lunch there today with a co-worker. The wait was a bit long (10-15 min), and we decided to split the cheese bread and the Evil Steak Thai Noodle Salad with mango, avocado, cabbage, peanuts, and lime dressing. After a while we noticed it was taking long, but w/out asking the waitress came and apologized. Eventually the chef (!) brought out our salad (already split on two plates), and said it was his fault it was so late. It was the most amazing salad and the filet was medium rare and tasty! All the waitstaff was very nice, and I noticed that the other tables were served quickly, so it WAS an aberration - I'd go back, but not for a power lunch. It makes me want to try the fondue!

I love coming here with my friends we have fun and order some great drinks. We come on the weekend so it does get packed very fast but it is fun and nice. It come alot and the people are very friendly here. Prices are fair.

Houston's is one of our favorites. We didn't even realize it was a chain until we'd eaten there many times. The food is amazing - our favorites include the out-of-this-world veggie burger, the luscious french dip, the fall-off-the-bone ribs and - I swear - the best filet mignon in Boston. Every seasonal vegetable side dish we've tried - and we've tried many - has been creative and delectable. The service is impressively streamlined and professional and the atmosphere is casually elegant. Slightly pricey depending on what you order, but to us, it's well worth it. Houston's is always a treat.

I wanted a nice relaxing dinner with my boyfriend and it was very rushed and the food was served very fast. Also, suprisingly people were causually dressed. The side dishes were gross (tarter sauce for the fish= very sugary, cole slaw-yuck, potatos-good minus all the green scallions in it)The artichoke dip was average and wasn't any different than a TGIF maybe a little better but not much. The ceasar salad was too Americanized and wasnt even a good Ceasear classic Italian dressing. The sauted haddock was great but the tarter or as they would call it....dressing was gross. My boyfriend got the ribs and he loved them but agreed with me on the other food. Try someplace else because this place isnt all that you would think it is. 2 people =$90.00 plus.... the bar looked nice and id go back to try only that

Order the Seared Tuna. Prepared very nicely and just melts in your mouth. Afterwards, find your way to Finale for dessert...always go to Finale for dessert.

If you are going out for an expensive dinner, you might as well go to a five star restaraunt, rather than Houstons. The food is same quality as you would find at a TGIFridays, but double the price. However, the location is great, and there is outside seating. A major con is that they do not offer take out..so even if you dont have room for dessert...you arent allowed to take a piece of the yummy banana cream pie home.Trust me, I asked...and they refused to sell me a piece.

PROS: location
CONS: pricey, and no take-out available

I hate Chain Restaurants but Houston's has done it right. Food is excellent and the service is Great. The waitstaff style is simple (no B.S. ) they are there when you need them and not there lurking over you when you dont need them. The menu is great we loved the Spinich Artichoke Dip , Ribeye and Ribs. Where the Beans at!!! Great Prices.

Dont understand the negative reviews. Delicious food,especially the ribs,thai steak,salads and side orders. waiters are extremely helpful and always around. About the only negative i would list would be getting in. The hostesses always seem to be slow to help. There was a great manager named Matt who was very helpful but he left.

Houston's is great. I went with the guys for a night out, and it all started here. The Filet Mignon was excellent and the Mashed Potatoes were amazing. We had a beautiful Albanian waitress who was there for all our needs and although the place was packed with patrons, the staff had it well under control. I highly recommend this restaurant for any occasion!

Thank goodness a friend recommended Houston's as one of her favorite restuarants as I can now add it to my list as well. Today I not only had what was called the "Famous French Dip," which made my mouth water just at the sight of it, but I also was never left w/o a refill at just the right time or the removal of anything not needed at the table (plates, glasses, silverware, ect...). My awesome experience started at the door with a friendly hello and an appropriate chat to my table, fast and expedient service of everything I ordered, to the end when a manager and my server wished me well and welcomed me back soon. I highly recommend this restaurant to anyone wanting to enjoy a mouth watering meal and top notch service.

I went there with family on a Saturday night. The menu was very limited and I was left wondering why in the world did I went there. The service was so-so, the food was ordinary at best which left me wondering whether it'd have made more sense to get a burger at the McD across the street. To sum it up, the VALUE I got for my $ was somewhat negative. I went there to avoid cooking, and ended up making myself something to eat once I got back home. I'd not recommend it to anyone.

I know it's just a chain but Houston's is always a favorite restaurant to go to right now. Their clam chowder is creamy with fat potatoes and a bacon flavoring. The hawaiiwan ribeye is amazing!!! It's a huge slab of ribeye steak marinated in a teriyaki glaze. So tender....so juicy...so good....

definitely check it out!

I went to Houston's for lunch and the service was great. It was very busy yet the food came out quick and was delicious. I recommend the grilled chicken salad. The only criticism I have is there are too few appetizers (only 2!) a smoked salmon dish and a spinach dip. I would have liked more of a variety.

I have only been to Houston's for lunch and after-work drinks. I was VERY happy with my lunch and the lunch-time atmosphere. VERY good bloody mary as well. The bar does not serve domestic beers which is a little pretentious, and it's a bit expensive BUT they passed around fee appitizers (don't know if they do that all the time) and that was a great touch. I would go back there anytime.

The waiter didn't bring the drink order in a timely fashion, they didn't get my burger order right, the fries were cold, and 3 seperate times another server brought the wrong food to our table. All this for a $12 burger? Never again.

As many other reviewers, I've been to other Houston's around the country, so I was very happy when I heard one was opening in Faneuil Hall. Great service, great location, and GREAT ribs. It'll be nice to see someone else besides Redbones at the top of next year's citysearch "Best Ribs" category!

A friend and I went into Houston's after hearing great things from co-workers. Apparently it's becoming known not only for a fabulous meal, but also a great scene before the rest of fanuiel hall starts pumping. The place is nice on the eyes, but I've got to say that the staff is even nicer. Initially only getting apps, a tall blonde behind the bar convinced us to try her favortie, which was the rib-eye. I am very pleased with myself for listening to her-it was awesome! I wil be back for both the steak and for her!!

I have been to Houston's Boston 3 times since they opened and I believe it is the best Houston's yet! From the service, to the food, to the interior desing, each time I leave I am more impressed than the time before! They have something for everyone! If you have not been, GO! The ribs, chicken salad, and cedar plank salmon are exceptional! ENJOY!

i've been to the Houston's in DC, VA and Atlanta, and was pleased that it finally arrived in Boston. My mouth waters for their SPINACH DIP, Salad (their homemade honey mustard dressing is excellent), Double Porkchops (easily split between 2 persons) and Hawaiin Steak (slightly marinated as sweet). However, the absolute BEST dish here are the CRABCAKES. they have yet to offer these babies in Boston. the price is about $30 for two crabcakes, which might sound ridiculous, but trust me - they're the absolute best crabcakes you'll ever inhale (i'm a crabcake connossieur). this item is not on the menu so make sure you ask about their specials. also, the jumbo steamed/boiled shrimp special is worth the price if it's available on the menu as well.

I have heard a lot about Houston's in the other areas of the country and finally got a chance to try them a few nights ago. It was AWESOME! It is very true that it is bit over priced ( salads 11-16, entrees 15-36), but the quality of food and the presentation of it are priceless. The interior design and decoration are done very delicately and the setting is very romantic. Wait staff was very helpful and HOT!! Ask for their bread! (they give it to you only when you ask for it) I will be going back here all the time! IT'S AWESOME!!!
