It's always a pleasure to dine here, and this time we brought our 12 year old grandson. He loved his filet and sides. Looking forward to our next visit.

Had been to the restaurant last year and was not pleased. This visit was outstanding. Drinks, onion rings, aged prime steak(20 ounces which we shared), and peach cobbler—everything was delicious. Can’t wait to go back.

We eat here every time we are down to our condo. EXCELLENT everything sums it up nicely. You can relax and pace your dining experience. The bone in filet was cooked to perfection. My husband had the 6oz filet with a six ounce lobster tail. All served to perfection. The service is awesome. Brian and or Raz (sp) usually are our servers.

Megan is a work a holic, making sure everything is in order. She’s the best.

Michael manages the bar and always greets us with a “Hi guys”.

Love love love this place

Too expensive! The service was less than ideal - when we finished our meal dirty plates were left for a long time - would not expect that when you are paying this much for a meal. Food was just ok - again should be outstanding at these prices.

The food was amazing and our server was great. The tables were a little tight but overall it was fine. The noise level (like most every Rehoboth restaurant) was extremely loud. I wish restaurateurs would realize the value of implementing acoustical buffers to absorb noise so patrons can enjoy each other’s company.

Disclaimer: my experience is negatively colored because I was looking forward to the dry aged Kansas city strip, and our waiter told us it was the special for the night, but then when taking our order said he misspoke. Right there, my night was ruined. But trying to be unbiased... the fried green tomato appetizer was really good. My 20oz dry aged ribeye had a nice dry aged flavor. My complaint is that there was a bit too much salt on the meat and butter in the pan/ plate. It took away from the great dry aged flavor and actually made it hard on my stomach. We also had a filet, nice flavor but same salt and butter issue, and the asparagus was not cooked crisp. It was tasty, but quite limp. The drinks were good, but not fancy to match the type of night wer expected paying that much for a dry aged steak. Final ruining moment of my night: I said no to the sour cream for my baked potato but it was brought out anyway...ok, except they charged me $1 for it (and another $1 for my wife).... we were never told about this, let alone charge me for something I didn't have. Poor touch on what I really hoped was going to be a special night.

Houston White is a beautiful place with friendly personable staff. Our dinners were delicious however we waited a very long time for food to arrive for some reason. I can only assume this was not a usual occurrence but was our experience. Staff and owners were very apologetic so I hope this was a one time occurrence. Will try again. Ambience is really nice

We had a great celebration for Father’s Day. Bahram was our server and he was great! He went out of his way to make our 14-year-old son happy. The wine we had was by the glass and both of the reds were great. The Caesar salad was fabulous. The tomato, mozzarella and basil salad was good but I was expecting better tomatoes given the time of year. The two filet minions were very good. The crab cakes came with a large serving of Mac and cheese and green beans. The crab cakes were good and the green beans were especially good. We were so full that we skipped dessert. This is a really nice special occasion restaurant. It isn’t cheap, but is better than many other of the nicest Rehoboth Beach restaurants.

It was my Girlfriends bday dinner and I wanted to take her to a place that she really would enjoy the food while we were in Rehoboth Beach. I took her somewhere with a nice view 2 years ago but food was just okay. This place though had good reviews and the menu look delicious. Knowing that steak was the go to I figured that she would love it. But to my surprise she ordered the lobster mostly because we had eaten just a few hours before and we planned to walk the boardwalk after dinner so she didn’t want to be too full. To my delight the lobster was phenomenal and she gave her compliments twice to our wonderful server and the chef. The hostess even greeted her with a happy birthday. I just wanted her dinner to be special and delicious and Houston White Co. made it happen. Oh... and I order the hanger steak topped with their bone marrow sauce with the bake potato and it melted in my mouth. Great host, great service, good atmosphere, great vibe, and yummy food giving us the best value in fine dining.

If your in Rehoboth Beach, give this place a try for a lovely dining experience.

My husband and I try a different restaurant every week, so that when our guests come into town we only take them to the best places. And this was at the top of our list!! I had the lamp chops rare to medium rare and I literally was eating it off the bone, I know, classy (sorry, not sorry) Accompanied by blue cheese butter I could’ve bathed in and sautéed mushrooms (I’m drooling writing this) It was incredible!! And the creamed spinach, I could’ve eaten it right out of the “table sharing” bowl, that I refused to share, btw. In saying all of this, I’m not a big eater, but my husband is...my husband enjoyed his meal and loved how much I enjoyed my meal, but his Delmonico Ribeye was more medium than medium rare and they were out of the initial bottle of wine the waiter suggested (no one wants the 2nd best bottle of wine you have.) But based on my meal, which is all that matters (just kidding) we highly recommend Houston White Co!!

We celebrated our 30th wedding anniversary recently and had the best time being pampered! We were greeted with Champagne and a very warm welcome from the owner, Megan Kee. It just got better and better! The salad Caprese special was divine-with the freshest sweetest tomatoes and yummy buratta mozzarella and the clams oregannota were delish-much like clams casino only better!

We were here for the steaks, and knowing they had Prime rib on Sundays, we celebrated a day early for that! Their beef does not disappoint!! Hubby had the 30 day aged Delmonico steak and was in heaven! Crispy edges and cooked to a perfect rare! The baked potato was delish as were the mushrooms and creamed spinach! My Prime Rib was amazing-very much like what I remember from my younger days-rich, perfectly medium rare, a perfect au jus. Simply succulent!! The wine list is lovely-wonderful reds to accompany your meal!

Another side we ordered which requires its own shout-out is the Onion Rings!! It has been years since we have had such a great onion ring-crisp just cooked onion in a light and crunchy batter and fried and salted to perfection! We ate every last morsel!

The after dinner espresso martini was amazing and a delightful surprise with all the yummy tastes!!

Megan Kee, the owner, is the ultimate hostess and her staff is well trained in all aspects of fine dining! We are huge fans of her and her two restaurants!! Megan-we will follow you wherever you land!!
Thank you for an amazing experience!

Food and service were excellent! A very good place for a special occasion - except for the noise level. Not the fault of the restaurant - the diners seemed to feel the need to talk as loud as possible. Because the tables are close, we now know that the person seated next to us carries $80 million in life insurance and wouldn’t trust Joe Biden to run his business, let alone the nation.
