I got to Houston's with my friends at least a few times a month. They have a good happy hour, and good food. If you go with a large group to have dinner, be prepared to wait. The hostess will try to accommodate you as fast as possible, but i suggest you grab a drink and prepare yourself for an hours wait. I was there this past Saturday and it was quite busy, but the services was still good. Overall, I am happy with this place!

A large group of us arrived at Houston's. Were told that it would be a 2 hour wait. A bit long, but worth the wait, since we were all in town and made the extra effort for all of us to take cabs from our downtown hotel so we all could enjoy a wonderful dinner with old friends, as Houston's was always the place we would go when we all gathered in KC. After waiting over 1 hour and 45 minutes, the staff member at the bar quipped "we can no longer serve you". The service was slow, at best, as we had to track someone down for each and every order, so I have no idea how someone could be over served as they claim, as there was one person who had just ordered his 3rd drink, a 250 lb. male A bit shocking to the majority of us, as we had been sipping either the same drink the entire time or drinking tonic/ice water. After speaking with management and trying to understand why this happened, as I worked in the restaurant industry, there are ways to handle a situation like this, and trust me, this is not it. To add insult to the entire situation, after we complained our tables were suddenly open, after were told it would be another 30 minutes, BUT nobody would be served alcohol, including those of us who had been drinking water/tonic for the last hour plus. We told them that after the way we were treated that we not eat then, nor ever in their restaurant again. We then walked down to the Capital Grille did end up having a have a wonderful meal and paid our $700 plus bill with pleasure as we had a wonderful meal and the staff was outstanding. I have eaten at Houston's with family and friends for over the past 20 years and will gladly not step foot in Houston's again.

While Houstons has a nice atmosphere, I find the menu to be very basic. I have never had anything that really "WOWed" me, and for the price, i expect more. While i have never had a bad experience, it is just not a place I choose to go to unless my friends want to eat there. I feel there are better options nearby.

This is a great place to sit down and enjoy American food at its best. Nice middle-age crowd (but sometimes families bring the rug-rats and that is a downer, so don't go prior to 7pm). The plaza is fantastic and this is a great place to finish the day of shopping.

PS. The user MrnMrsRowe... they blow(e)... *snicker* :p

Pros: Great steak (and believe it or not, fantastic ribs)

Cons: Kids are taken there prior to 7pm for dinner sometimes... :(

In reference to the previous review, Houston's is not a bar. It has a bar, but it's definitely not a bar. The dining room has subdued lighting in the evening, and never seems loud, even when the place is full. The comfy booths seem private, which makes this a nice spot for dinner with your significant other. The menu, while not too diverse, is fairly solid, and the steaks are great. Service was a bit lacking during my last visit but is generally above average.

I am fan of Houston's Restaurant. I especially love their Happy Hour special where you get appretizer half off. In addition, their maritini's are the greatest. They also have a chocolate martini that includes a Ding Dong. How can you not love that. They have great pasta dishes and I love their steaks. The place is very stylish. The wait staff are very friendly. It is pricey so I can not go there as much as I wish. The parking is not the best.

Straightforward American cooking such as hardwood-grilled choice steaks, aged prime rib, fresh fish filleted in-house, big burgers, knife and fork ribs, a selection of the freshest salads, sandwiches, seasonal vegetables and signature soups. Price range: $8-$26.

My husband and I love to get away for romantic nights at Houstons! The strip steak is to die for and if they don't have it on the menu just ask. The service has always been attentive but not annoying. The only con is that there is usually a long wait but your on the Plaza so you can go and explore.

My wife and I have been dining at Houston's on the Plaza for 10 years of our 13 year marriage. We have had anything from a Great Steak & Prime Rib! dinner to a simple salad for a quick lunch (filling). I dont understand how Houston's can go unannouced on a Top 10. Best, steaks, spinach & artichoke, salads and serviced dinnersssss, we don't mind paying $60.00 for. For the money and quality of food and service I would recommend Houston's to a out-of-town guest above all others.

Houston's has the best hamburgers by far! They have the juiciest, tastiest beef. I have never been disappointed (or food-poisoned like I have at other burger joints). They not only have great burgers, but ribs and a fish sandwich as well.
