good vibe, good food. 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!
The worst experience I have had at a restaurant yet !!. 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.
Roomy banquettes and hefty portions typify this polished American grill that's popular for business deals and special occasions..
Burnished brass and stained wood complement roughly mortared brick and the occasional plant. Amid ubiquitous earth tones, corporate types and small parties (celebrating or simply living large) occupy deep booths done up in fine upholstery and lit from above by pin spotlights. Burgers, prime rib and steaks are the specialties of the house, but the menu also includes salmon, salads, pork chops and roasted chicken.
Fantastic steak and potato meals with great service..
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.

Always a nice time. 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.
its a bar. It is a bar if this is your idea of romance, then you probably are still wear a ball cap on a date and can nat understand why your still single. nuff said
You have to get the strip. 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.
Brownie to Die For!. A trip to Houston's is not complete with out the Five Nut Brownie. Houston's is a great place to celebrate any special occasion with your loved one.
Houson's, to beat All!. 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.
best prime rib ever.
all thought Houstons has a myriad of different dishes to suite the taste of every one, we are talking about steak and bar none Houstons serve the best Prime Rib dinner any where . I've tried almost all of the others and Houstons has the best Prime Rib of all of them.
If you want great mouth waterimg Prime Rib Houstons is the only place worth goining.
