Truly a steakhouse but all portions were huge - nothing under 12 oz. so I tried the stroganoff & it was only ok. Perfect sauce & plenty of mushrooms but the beef was a bit fatty & the meat should have been cut into smaller pieces. The trout was vey good & served with a ton of green beans. The place also needs a far bigger selection of wines by the glass - only had 3 red options, 3 white & a rose. Needed at least 2 bottles of wine under $40. The wait staff was excellent!

Was my first visit. The seafood chowder was fantastic. My steal was cooked as requested. Sides were good. Waiter inadvertently switched my dining companions steaks--which is a major mistake in a steakhouse when one was medium and the other medium-rare. Prices are big city high. It is a nice choice for a special meal.

We were very pleased at Houston White. The biscuits were amazing!My only suggestion is that for someone who only eats lightly think salads there should have been a light seafood option.Overall would definitely return and the food was delicious.

The best steak and atmosphere in downtown RB. The food is absolutely exceptional. We had the 70-day aged steak and it was perfection. The food is elevated steak house food. Such a delightful evening. Megan, the owner is absolutely fantastic and you can tell she pours her heart into her restaurant.

Excellent food as always. Great steak house ambiance - you feel like you could be in NY City. Super value on Thursday's during off-season with 6 oz Filet at $10.99, compared to the normal price of $45 or an 8oz filet. For steak topping get the bone marrow demi-glace - $8.00 but a value because it is enough for four. Everything is a la carte - but the table servings of vegetables are still a good deal, particularly the mushrooms, in the $10 range. Red wines served at the perfect temperature - around 60 degrees. Most restaurants in Rehoboth destroy their red wines by serving at room temperature. Overall it is very pricey (except for the Thursday night special) - but worth it! Parking can be difficult in the summer so give yourself extra time or take an Uber.

Fabulous food -- we had the petit filet Thursday night special ($10.95) and it was so delicious we couldn't believe that price. In general the menu is too expensive for us retired folk on fixed incomes -- but we will be back for these specials A LOT and bring friends! Great filet, veggies, service, ambiance. We'll be back soon!

Everything was simply fantastic! The food and service were outstanding! Our server, Brian, made our 45th Anniversary dinner an occasion we’ll never forget. It is clear that Megan and her staff are committed to creating a dining experience unique to each individual. From the beautifully crafted Classic Old Fashioned ( no muddled fruit), to the melt in your mouth bone in filet, and the perfect baked potato with crispy skin sheltering a light and fluffy inside, our meal was truly something very special. This is certainly a restaurant for special occasions, but equally for those times when you just really need great food prepared perfectly.

The chowder was amazing and the bone in filet is on another level. It’s just so much better than a petite filet. We also split the onion rings and creamed spinach which were both very good and big portions.

We made our reservation one week in advance. When we arrived there was no table in the main dining room so we were seated in the narrow room to the left. We were the only diners there. No real problem with that. The hostess gave us our menus and explained that they were having their Petite Filet special for $10.95. She took our wine order. When she returned we ordered our food. While we were eating our wedge salads (the tomatoes were icy) a party of four was seated next to us. A server, not ours as we never had one, introduced himself to the other diners and proceeded to inform them of the additions to the menu that the chef was preparing. We were never given that information. They sounded quite good but we had already ordered. Our entrees were barely warm. The onion rings were cold. The mushrooms were good. We shared the Bourbon Bread Pudding for dessert. It would have been much better served warm and not cold. Our used dishes were removed by assorted staff. The only saving grace for the evening was the excellent Expresso Martini that was served to me by the bartender. Very disappointed in our experience or maybe our expectations were too high.

Saturday was our first time dining at Houston White with another couple. We were quite pleased with the ambiance, service, and food. It was nice to see the owner, Meagan, whom we have known for several years. I understand it is a steak house, but, if you don't eat steak, there were only 2 or 3 other choices. And the prices were at the high end of the scale.

Our meals were absolutely delicious! We shall return!

My wife and I were looking for a nice "date night" destination. We had been talking about trying this restaurant but this was our first visit. WE WILL BE BACK!! This is a hidden gem in the middle of Rehoboth. Our waiter Ty was extremely knowledgable about the menu and very attentive. The food was delicious, the steak was cooked to perfection. We both commented how we felt we had been transported to a New York steakhouse. A very enjoyable evening.
One comment, we would like to return with our adult children. Our oldest daughter is wheelchair bound and while there is a wonderful ramp along the side of the building, the area was blocked by two very large trash dumpsters. Please consider moving the trash receptacles to a more ADA friendly position.
Thanks.

Spectacular steaks. The menu is simple steakhouse style in preparation, but executed magnificently. We have visited a few times now and look forward to the next. The owner is usually present and most gracious. It’s not an inexpensive experience, but well worth the treat. Our server told us they are starting a ten dollar prime filet night on thursdays. We will now be weekly diners.
