personnally, I have never eaten at houstons (Hillstone) I have taken an hour or so and have read comments I have to agree with some and disagree with the company more. my issue is with a fla restaurant staff (chef) every time my husband makes a delivery the chef as him to something different first time put the meat in standing water in the cooler, this is supposed to be 5 star quailty? now do the restocking of it when he makes a delivery Truck drivers are not paid employees of the restaurant so why is this chef getting away with this

I frequent this spot regularaly because the food is really good. Although its part of a chain, and it sits in the middle of some other large chain restaurants in Hackensack, NJ Riverside Sq. Mall, this particular one is great. You can not call and make reservations, and if you go anyday during the week, expect at least a 30-40 minute wait, and on the weekends, even longer. The appetizers and salads are excellent. The peel and eat shrimp is amazing. It's fun to eat and they don't just give you 2 pieces of shrimp, it's good, fresh jumbo shrimp. Also, apparently the ribs are amazing. My bf gets them everytime, they're just so juicy and fall right off hte bone. I wouldn't know, I have never eaten the things! I am a big fan of their Ahi Tuna which is absolutely amazing. The salad and entree are spectacular. They cook it just right.

Pros: Great Ribs

Cons: In the Mall

My husband and I were asked to leave this restaurant because our 2 year old got upset when the waiter removed her dinner plate, without asking, when she was not done. She did scream but was by no means out of control. The manager was rude and especially unkind to our child. I called the corporate headquarters to share my experience and was told that children are welcome in the restaurant as long as they are "seen and noy heard." Yes, they really said that!

Pros: Mall location

Cons: Long wait, they will hate having your child there.

I visited Houston's recently with my fiance and another couple who had come there before.. Even though it was a bit on the pricey side, it proved to be worth it when the food came... The spinach dip and bbq ribs are beyond good... YUM. I will definitely be back there...

This place has always been consistent in my book as far as food & service. I've never been disappointed with anything on the menu. Some of my faves are the Biltmore Chicken, the Ahi Tuna Salad, Burgers, Lemonade & Fresh Squeezed Cosmos...yummy.

The service is very good, they are very attentative to your needs & you will be sure to get a refill without even asking.

The atmosphere is very New Yorkesque. Dimly lit, waiters/waitresses dressed in black, attractive decor & nice distance between you and your neighbor.

The only drawback is the wait. They should really consider giving reservations particularly on the weekends. Can't stand waiting an hour to get a table.

Overall, highly recommended...try going during the week though.

I'd been this place often and food is getting worse. also, it's very very hard to get to the table. They don't take reservations, and they are now REQUIRE the Proper Attire. Which sounds doesn't make sense at all. I always got my seat after I lost my appetite because too much wait for the table. I saw so many people leave before they're getting a table and I did too.
This is not the exotic-fancy restaurant, but I always ended up to wait more than an hour or two.
If you are hungry and would like to have nice time for dinner, this is not the right place. This restaurant ruined many people's dining time and should take reservations.

I called to arrange a business dinner for 4 clients coming in from out of town and this restaurant was very unaccomodating. I understand they do not accept reservations, but when I asked if our clients could call in their name when they were on their way, the manager said no. He also informed me that the wait could be over an hour. In fact, he recommended Morton's which is located next door. That says a lot if management is recommending another restaurant.

This is a great restaurant. However, do not show up at 10:01 pm or the hostess will not seat you. I regularly eat at this restaurant and showed up with some out of town guests we had just picked up at the airport calling ahead (15 min earlier) to make sure we could still get seated. However as the hostess confirmed, it was 1 minute after ten and she would not seat us. Very disappointing...

Great looking food, drink, and staff. This is a great place to enjoy a cosmo with great friends. The vegetable plate is divine and all of the staff (including management personnel) have a great image.
