Description: 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.

Bar in dining room makes it loud. Dinners were not up to par. Lunches were fantastic. The scallops on risotto are superb! Service is good didn't take too long. Wine is expensive per glass. Atmosphere is ok without evening noise of bar.

I loved the food. Everything we had was delicious, and both times we ate there, we had very friendly, helpful servers. The atmosphere is great too! Very convenient being connected to the lobby of the Marriott where we were staying. Loved it!

Food was good and nice to have right inside the hotel. Burn, the service was a bit slow and caused us to be a tad late for our meeting.

Bryan Davis was our server at the Columbus Houlihan's and it was a great experience. He knows the menu and made great recommendations on what to order. But most importantly, he knows how to establish an excellent relationship with his customers. It was a fun evening because of Bryan and the food was great...cooked to perfection. Bill N

Houlihan's is my go to place in Columbus. My boyfriend and I absolutely love their meatloaf with mashed potatos and green beans && their yummy brownie dessert with candied walnuts (<--- they're amazing)!! Our service has always been great. We travel to Columbus a handfull of times throughout the year and I always find a reason to go there.

My friend Nece and I decided to go to the downtown Columbus, GA Houlihans. We both ordered Martinis and appetizers. I had the blueberry martini. It was semi-strong but good. She had the calamari and I had the spicy chicken and avocado egg rolls. The egg rolls were ok. The avocado gave them a butter taste and it seemed to... More

They have a very good range of salads. Imaginative tasty and filling! Great wait staff, fully of Southern hospitality. And the Terrapin ale in the bar is great too.

We had free breakfast buffets here, as we were staying at the attached Marriott which is a very nice hotel. However, the food, the service, even the cleanliness of Houlihans was terrible. Even if it is free, even if they pay you to eat here - don't do it!! It's hard to mess up breakfast, but it the food was... More
