Awesome restaurant by the beach. Food is delicious. Can get packed, so it is recommemded to make reservations especially during the weekend. My favorite dish is the Baby Back Rib plate.

**SOLID LUNCH SPOT NEAR THIRD STREET PROMENADE**

Expensive, yes.

Good food, yes.

Good service, yes.

Good ambiance, yes.

We met our co-worker here for lunch and it was an extravagant occasion; especially for a $14 cocktail and your boss wasn't there to pick up the bill.

ORDERED:

**GRILLED ARTICHOKE ($13)
Loved the flavor and the side mayo. It was good and tasty.

**THAI STEAK & NOODLE SALAD (or with chicken) ($19)
Marinated filet with avocado, mango and herbs in Thai dressing. I liked this better than the Hawaiian Rib Eye. It was fun, tasty, and vivid.

**VODKA MARTINI ($14)
Clean and good. But $14. Shiiieeet.

Also had a spoonful taste of the tortilla soup ($7) and that wasn't bad. It had to be reheated though because it was initially served cold.

Our waitress, Kelly, was nice and friendly.

We sat in one of the booths and there was lots of light and space for 3 people.

RECOMMEND for a work lunch (because it is pricey).

For a chain, Houston's is still pretty amazing. The food is fantastic and the ambience is pretty great too. It's not super casual, though not very dressy. Wish they had a happy hour.

I'm never disappointed by Houston's. It's just a restaurant where I can get a consistent experience--great food, great staff, clean restaurant. I like how the food options range from burger and shoestring fries to inside-out tuna sushi salad. This is the perfect stop if you need a break from the crowds on the Promenade.
