Forget 'casual dining.' That's an industry term so out of touch with how consumers eat and drink today. For premium quality and style; fare that's at times familiar and other times adventurous and a laid-back modern setting, Houlihan's is a true original. Located inside the Marriott hotel with new outdoor deck seating.

A Wonderful Find

We had a wonderful late lunch at Houlihans in Columbus. What a wonderful addition to the Marriott! We started with edamame, flat bread and had a grilled chicken salad with blueberries, strawberries, blackberries and almonds. It was wonderful!!!

My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed the delicious food, the ambiance of the restaurant, and the wonderful staff. I would highly recommend this restaurant to any of my friends or colleagues.

I had the salmon salad (can't remember it's real name") but it was very tasty. Good service. Lovely outdoor deck when the weather is nice. They definitely don't rush you here and like you to stay.

We were staying in the hotel and found eating at Houlihan's convenient. Hotel restaurants can often disappoint -- that wasn't the case with Houlihan's. We had both dinner and breakfast here. I can recommend the buffalo chicken salad -- spicy and delicious. The breakfast buffet is a bargain and provides a wide variety of breakfast items. They'll make omelets and... More

We ate at Houlihan's a few nights ago before a show at the Rivercenter. It was VERY crowded, but we were surprised how quickly our food arrived! I had the firecracker shrimp to start (which everyone loved) and my meal was the scallops. THE SCALLOPS WERE AMAZING. Best thing I've ever had at Houlihan's. Service was friendly and attentive as...

We're in Columbus on family business quite often these days, and have had dinner (or lunch) at Houlihan's several times. Usually the food is consistently good, but the service hasn't been quite as consistent. It's never been bad, but has varied. On our visit last weekend, however, both the food and the service were excellent. We had two different entree... More

We went to Houlihan's last night,waited 30 minutes to be seated and then waited another 30 minutes to be served. The food was good, but not quite warm enough, we did not ask the waitress to warm it up because we really did not want to wait any longer. After an hour, wait we figured we deserved hot food !...

I had such excellent service from a waitress named Jackie. She was so pleasant and just gave my husband and I such great service. She really made my dining experience a pleasure.

I was here a week ago and ate at the bar. I had some of the firecracker shrimp with a few beers. The shrimp was OUTSTANDING! Sweet and spicey with a crisp bite. Too good, really, its an appetizer but I couldn't stop and made a meal of it. Sam and Daniel at the bar made it even better with... More
