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.

Food was very good. Bartender was excellent. It was very cold the day I was there and the restrauant was a little chilly but not horrible. Servers were very friendly.

I came to this restaraunt on Sunday the 9th of January and had a GREAT experience. The restaraunt was not very busy and there was only one waitress on staff and she did so well taking care of all the tables she had. I believe her name was Madison. She made sure our drinks were always filled and the food... More

Columbus has plenty of chain restaurants. Houlihan's is as good as any. It's also convenient, one of the few chain restaurants located downtown rather than on Whittlesey Road.

If I could, I would rate this a 3.5 circles. It's good. I would recommend it. But I wouldn't honestly say "very" good. This is not fine dining. But it's not supposed to be. This is what I call "fern bar" food. Remember fern bars? That's what they used to call eateries like Ruby Tuesday's, Houston's and T.G.I.Fridays when they... More

We had our company Christmas party this year at Houlihan's and it was excellent. The Food was served hot and tasty. We had very large portions and lots of choices on the catered, private buffet. Service was spot-on as well.

I visited Houlihan's with family and friends prior to visiting the Rivercenter for a play. This was the only restaurant I have ever walked out of without having eaten. We waited an hour after ordering our dinner. Our food never came & we left for our show hungry. I will never be back. This place is a joke.

right near the riverwalk! Great location and nice atmosphere! I wish they had a larger selection of food choices, but never have been disappointed.

Wonderful food with a high end flair. This place also has great cocktails to include a list of 10 different kinds of long islands served at a great price in one liter pitchers. This place is very quiet & has a laid back feel. I would highly recommend this place for both the food & drinks. They run specials most... More

The food is always good and the restaurant is in a great location in the Marriott Hotel Downtown. The old wooden bar is a beautiful piece of craftsmanship that fits in great with the old mill that has been converted into the hotel.
