    Emerald Kale salad, French Dip and the Ribs are all top notch
  • Brian S.
    One of my favorite American bar and grills. Yes it's part of a chain, but the food and service are excellent. The Western burger is one if my top five burgers ever.
  • Wilson F.
    Pleasant Embarcadero location, delicious burgers and solid jazz playlist but the service tried too hard and was rushed.

    Really great food as always; but unfortunately the hostesses were somewhat rude when we had miscommunication about lunch policy.

    Everything we had was absolutely delicious. The French dip melted in your mouth and the smoked salmon appetizer was the best I've ever had. Is on our list of favs now.

    The French dip is the best thing on the menu. Stay away from the crab cake.

    What a ambiance, steak and wine. You must order your steak medium or medium-well because it could be like not cooked if you want medium rare. Also you must give a shot for brownie.

    Smoked salmon appetizer was delicious and super fresh.

    Love this place! Awesome decor, big comfy red booths. All the food is delicious, but the grilled artichoke is a must!

    No corkage fee, great service, and solid food. The ribeye is really good here, as is the prime rib.

    Hawaiian Rib eye was really good. Would have liked more craft beer on draft.

    Entire menu is excellent. Ambience is great. It's where I eat when I want to feel fancy, but not too fancy.

    Don't try to eat the Tuna burger without cutting it in half first. It gets messy.

    Ribs literally fall off the bone...so delicious. Great spot for a date, special occasion, or just because.

    Best ribs in town. Ribs not your thing? The Hawaiian ribeye steak is out if this world. Formally called Houston's, (same company) Hillstone is always consistently good with curious wait staff.

    If you call to make reservations, make sure you get the name of the host or hostess. I booked two reservations and both times they made the reservation for the wrong day. Idiots! 👎

    House-smoked salmon - incredible. With a glass of your favourite white, brought from home: no corkage

    They just jacked up the prices to an absurd level. Still my favorite, but not worth the ridiculous prices.

    Open tables but a one-hour wait?!? What's wring here. Love the food but frustrated but unnecessary waits and lack of them taking a phone ahead on the list.

    Right across the street from the original Heat offices, this place has history! This is a great place for 5-7 friends to catch up. Their specialty is RIBS! Don’t be afraid, they’re delicious.

    Great vibe right by the water. Beautiful interior but most importantly, food is amazing. Must get the Hawaiian ribeye. Ask me about it on Twitter - @Greenbaumer

    Their wedge salad is incredible - super fresh tasting tomatoes and roasted beets with crumbled Gorgonzola. Desserts are tasty as well, with their chocolate coming from TCHO just across the street.

    I recommend the veggie burger, but without the cheese. And ask to hold the mustard sauce, as well.

    Order the Hawaiian ribeye, the sauce is amazing. Be very specific about your steak temperature.

    A friend took me to lunch here and I loved it. The Reubenesque Sandwish was simply delicious. I said I was just going to eat half but ended up gobbling the whole thing. No corkage fee! How cool is tha

    We've loved this place since it was called Houston's. Make sure to check out the outdoor fireplace, where you can enjoy a Trumer al fresco.

    Spinach & artichoke dip, hot fudge sundae. They serve Pimm's but you have to make sure to ask for a long one. Kid friendly, but with a grown up feel.

    I'm not a veggie burger guy, but the veggie burger here is sensational. Save your dignity by asking them to throw bacon on top (it's a common request).
