Food and service were excellent - from a great mushroom soup to seared ribeye and cauliflower steak - wow, it was all so good.
We had an 8:15pm dinner reservation. We waited at the bar for our table for close to an hour. The hostess was very apologetic and bought us a round of drinks, which was very nice. We were not seated until after 9pm, which is quite late to be starting dinner. Our food was very good, as usual, and our server was attentive, albeit not very refined for an upscale restaurant like HW.
I didn’t expect to be seated outside. It was a little buggy and warm. Our waitress from FL was excellent but slow to get our order and our water refilled.
Delmonico was delicious under cooked for our guest.
It probably would have been 5 stars if we were inside.
Really nice for a special dinner.
Best meal we had in Behoboth Beach. Great crab cakes. Great little biscuits. Amazing service by LJ. Nice to meet Meghan, the owner too.
Delicious meal. Friendly and efficient staff. Comfortable setting.
As always a fantastic meal an experience. Cocktails and food was out of this world!
Great service and meal was good. We shared the Tomahawk steak and the wedge salad. The wedge was the least
Favorite and by far the worst wedge of any high end steak houses we have experienced. Deserts were amazing.
Lovely meal outdoors on a balmy evening, our server was fantastic (Sandy I think? From Alaska and West Palm), all four of us really enjoyed our dishes. The only disappointment was the lack of bubbles by the glass, and the extremely high prices of the wine and champagne by the bottle. We just dined at the Inn at Little Washington last week (one of only 20 restaurants in the US with 3 Michelin stars) and these prices rivaled those. HW, get some more affordable wines if you want the locals like us to patronize you more frequently. Also some big fans might help to discourage flies, it’s a nice outdoor space but very closed in with no air movement.
Bottom line: the food, service and ambiance were all excellent, we’ll return for special occasions... and more if you amend your wine list.
A wonderful culinary experience - great for a special occasion!
We dined early but more couples & groups came in as we enjoyed dinner. Noise level was low. Service and food were excellent. Looked as if they were staffed for great service through the evening as the crowd picked up.
Everything was good but I was disappointed they did not have sour cream for my baked potato. They also do not offer cappuccino and the desserts they had were not appealing either.
Amazing night. The food and service is amazing.
Our waiter was very nice and I felt a bit bad for him but the wait time was horrendous and the staff all knew it. We finally asked for some compensation to the check. In hindsight I still think we still paid way too much. The food is VERY over-priced for what it is, I expected more.
In fairness they are just getting back to being fully open and I know that's been a challenge finding help but doesn't explain the situation or the prices. They were making excuses and large parties before us and the ac breaking in the kitchen..etc. We had plans to take our company out in the town after that terrible meal the only thing to do was go home.
The owner was there, that's who they had to check with about a discount and they never came out to apologize which I don't understand, having been in hospitality for many years. They should have picked up the check!
I live around the corner and won't be back nor recommend. This restaurant would have done the right thing by apologizing and giving us a return visit on them.
I rarely/never write bad reviews, and it hurts to do it but if you're looking to spend $400-$500 on dinner don't do it here.
Steaks were delicious. There were 3 of us and we ordered one salad and one side dish. Two of us split a 14 oz New York strip. Perfect! Also ordered two fabulous desserts.
Our server Sarah was fabulous! Megan knows how to train her staff to accommodate the guest! Can’t wait to go back
Delicious food, great service. Enjoyed being in the back outside with the twinkle lights.
For our anniversary we went to dinner we were greeted with a happy anniversary and a complimentary champagne drink Food wa excellent as was our server Sarah
Each item was excellent. Selections were limited. Prices for items were inflated.
Excellent ambiance, service and food. All in all a great dining experience.
Great service, food and ambiance. Owner is so delightful and talented.
Our server was quite personable. It was her first week there and she did a great job.
Great food! Server was LJ (I think) and he was perfect.
Best restaurant in Rehoboth Beach! The food and service is outstanding.
Highest quality food we’ve had at the beach! Great steak and lobsters! Pricey but worth it!
Food and service were excellent. Highly recommend this restaurant.
Great experience, professional staff, good selection, cooked to order.
The food was delicious and you get a lot of it. Our steaks were cooked to perfection. Our server was fantastic — personable, pleasant and efficient — and the rest of the staff was great, too. We love Houston and we can’t wait to come back.
Another amazing dinner. Cotes de Rhone Blanc was out of this world. Nice to see some different varietals. Steve was our waiter - again- and fantastic as always. He had a lovely guy shadowing him during training and is showing promise of being a great server. Outdoor seating to enjoy the great weather and watching all the antics on Rehoboth Avenue. Ramp risotto? yes please! Cant wait to dine again.
We had a wonderful experience at Houston White Co. We had a 9pm reservation, the party before us had not finished their meal, so we had to wait. Not to fear, we were seated in the bar area and given complimentary wine while we waited. Once we got to our table, we were seated by the kitchen - it was fun to watch the staff prep and present meals. The ambience was warm and welcoming. Our server Jason and the rest of the staff was friendly and informative. The pacing of our meal was perfect - we did not feel rushed, nor did we ever feel like we were waiting. The food was delicious, the steak and crab cakes well seasoned and expertly prepared! The sides were delicious and not too heavy. We loved our experience! Thanks Houston White Co. for a wonderful meal - our first meal out in over a year!
Excellent service! Excellent food! Great celebration dinner spot! Reservations a must! Outside dining available.
Our server, Sarah, epitomized what good service should be.
She knew the menu and guided us to a perfectly prepared Delmonico steak and to our surprise ’shrimp & grits’.
Both were perfectly prepared and extremely tasty.
We started with Oysters HWCO and finished with Bread Pudding.
Cocktails and wine were also above par.
This restaurant is hands down my favorite in Rehoboth. Service and food quality are always top notch. It’s simply the best!
We are locals and had been planning to try Houston & White then COVID hit. We decided at the last minute to make a reservation and go this past Friday. The service and drinks were amazing but the dinner itself was even better. The steaks were cooked perfectly and tender and the sides were delicious. This is our number 2 for the area with Heirloom still being our first love.
Lovely evening and wonderful dinner. We felt a bit rushed at times, but overall a very pleasant visit.
Had to send food back under cooked , couldn’t finish meal to much fat , after I cut it out there wasn’t much left
Great wait staff. Seafood was amazing. Steak was good. Vegetables were great.
As usual HW was wonderful! Strip steak was huge, well seasoned and cooked perfectly. Crab cake was Baltimore style, and delicious. Staff as friendly and competent as ever.
Thank you Ms McKee for a wonderful restaurant and dining experience.
