The food and service at HW is terrific. My wife and I have been a couple of times and will come back. The only negative is that it is very, very loud. I don’t know if it’s the acoustics or it just attracts loud people, but it’s not a quiet, romantic dinner. The tables are really close to each other and you can hear every conversation. The louder it gets the louder people talk. This last time, my wife’s chair was in the way of the wait staff as the entered and exited the kitchen. All of this takes away from what would be a really romantic night.

Excellent food, service and atmosphere. Steve our waiter did an excellent job. The drinks, sides and salads were very tasty as well. Busy night, NYE, but the staff was on top of it. First time but will be returning.

Fantastic Christmas Eve dinner. Service was outstanding, the Tomahawk steak for 2 was the best steak I’ve ever eaten. Amazing wine selection. Everything from start to finish was 5 star. Highly recommend!

This is one of my favorites in Rehoboth Beach. If I want a fantastic dinner in a great atmosphere, Houston White Co is my go to. The food is consistently excellent. On our most recent visit, we shared the Tomahawk Steak and it was PERFECT!

We were celebrating my cousin and his wife's 15th anniversary and this was their first time dining here. Each entree was prepared to everyone's satisfaction. Our server, LJ made it a very enjoyable experience for them. They want to go back when they're in town again.

We were greeted and seated promptly, no wait. The hostess and server acknowledged we were celebrating our anniversary and brought us champagne. The food was excellent although my lobster was under cooked. But that was immediately taken care of and a new lobster was brought out. Sides were not included but we both ordered a loaded baked potato that had too much sour cream. But everyone was super friendly and attentive, especially our server LJ. It was a nice celebratory dinner.

All of our meals were good. Was hoping for a shrimp cocktail on the menu but was not there last night. Sides were just ok. Creamed spinach was not as good as 1776 nor was the Mac and cheese. Was expecting a little more for the price. We will give it another try.
