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.

Only Irish by name but still good.

As soon as I saw the name I wanted to stop in. It sounds and looks like an Irish pub so I expected to see Smithwicks on rap and fish n chips on the menu. Although I was sadly disappointed that neither of those were available I would still recommend eating at Houlihans. I had the stuffed chicken and... read more

The Salmon was awesome and the mashed potatoes were very tasty. Atmosphere was also a plus. We enjoyed our business lunch.

The service is slow even when not fully packed restaurant. Food is way overpriced and seems to be pre-made frozen entrees that get heated to serve. Overpriced doesn't convey the way we felt about our meals in comparison to taste and quality ingredients. Dont plan to.visit there again. Houlihan of yesterday was so much better!!! Disappointed!!

Stopped in for dinner while staying at the Marriott. The menu had a good variety. I was in the mood for a good burger and it worked out. Looked like other entrees guests were having we're prepared well too. Service was good as well. Only criticism was the musty beer smell at the bar. But...I guess it happens after a... More

This restaurant is always consistent. I have always enjoyed great food from start (appetizers) to finish (desserts) at this location. My family and I usually share the eggrolls for an app. Both the veggie burger and scallop entrees are my favorites as I have not deviated from this. Other members of my party have had the salmon dish and love... More

Last Saturday I took my family out to eat at Houlihan's and it was the best experience we have ever had at any restaurant. Our waiter, Chad Minor was absolutely phenomenal. Being a family of five it is sometimes stressful to go out and eat at a nice restaurant, but he made it work going there every week. He made... More

Excellent meal, service and prices. The entire staff was excellent including the manager who took extra time with each guest to ensure everything was perfect - EVERY time I pass through I will be dinning here again!

Had our girls night at Houlihan's last Friday. Chad was our waiter and he took great care of all eight of us. From recommending drinks to making sure our food was to our liking Chad is the man. If you ever get to Columbus Georgia Houlihan's ask for Chad.
