The entire meal was outstanding but the steak was one of the best I’ve ever had.

Excellent food, excellent service. Very caring staff. The passion for food and customer care shows in everything you experience when you have a Houndstooth meal. Seems many locals get their Houndstooth fix on-the-go, too! Always a good sign! A must-try when in the area.

Great outdoor dining space which is not reservable, so we made the earliest res and requested a table outside when we arrived. This was our second visit to Houndstooth and we were most impressed with the shared small plates, dessert and cocktails which were so inventive. Outstanding service and wonderful ambience. We plan to return in cooler weather as heaters are installed on the patio. We also appreciate their care with safety protocols for diners as well as staff.

Everything we ordered, from the bread, to the scallops, to the cucumbers, to the swordfish (new to us and SO yummy) to the steak, to the drinks to the dessert that we shared among four of us was OUTSTANDING. Notable: the sunflower/burrata appetizer. So thoughtful, so generous, just gorgeous and delicious. The attention to detail, the freshness, the creativity, the pure passion that comes through in each dish, all so appreciated by a group of die hard foodies. So grateful to have celebrated a Friday evening in late summer at Houndstooth! Thanks to all.

We are from Naperville, a suburb of Chicago, the food at Houndstooth was better than any food we have ever had in the city of Chicago. It is fantastic!! We have been there twice in two weeks and cannot wait to go back! If you are in SW Michigan dining at Houndstooth is a must!!

Easily the most interesting (and tasty) food in SW Michigan. We opted for a bunch of appetizers all of which were great. The cocktails were balanced and tasty especially the snail mail with the $1 donation to the USPS. We will be back.

This is one of the most outstanding restaurants that we have experienced. And that is saying something -- we are "foodies" and search out great restaurants. This one ranks high for great tasting and interesting food. We had a great experience and look forward to coming back. Had a delicious Slovenian wine. Wonderful.

It was our 15th wedding anniversary. The food was amazing as always, the Slow Steak is magical and the ice cream sando’s never disappoints. We sat outside on the patio and loved it. I can’t say enough about how I feel each time I visit this restaurant, I wish I could eat here daily.
