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.

Granted, this is attached to the hotel where we were staying, but...it was still good. The place is very nice, the service was very good, folks were attentive and polite, and the food was very good too. We did an assortment of appetizers, chicken lettuce wraps were great, and their tomato bisque and potato soups were good too. Nice bar,... More

Great service, Patrick the bartender took care of me even though I was outside. Great food and beers on tap. Fish tacos are amazing

Popped in for a quick business meal with a colleague. I recall making a note that this is simply a good choice for a business meal as the setting is well suited and it is readily accessible to 185 for a quick get away. The service and quality of the food is excellent and the atmosphere is top notch.

Loved the service, food, customer service, choice, wine selection. Maybe would have enjoyed soft music and a fireplace, or candles on tables

We stayed at the Marriott and got the breakfast buffet complementary. Highlights were the fresh squeezed orange juice and fresh fruits. The only thing we did not like was some sort of link sausage that was really bad. We had dinner here as well. The Asian salad was very good with a ginger dressing. There meatloaf had a slightly sweet... More

Recently our son had a weekend pass at Ft Benning so my wife and I went to visit him. Another couple whose son is in the military with our son also went down and we took the boys out to Houlihans for dinner in down town Columbus! We ate outside even though it was a little unseasonally cool! The patio... More

Our families selected Houlihan's as a post wedding site for cocktails and appetizers after a special wedding along the Chattahoochee prior to the formal reception later that evening. We thoroughly enjoyed the time we shared on the patio. Our waitress Penny was terrific and took care of us with a smile! The appetizers were delicious! Memories cherished.

Houlihans is a wonderful restaurant with great food and exceptional service! The filet mignon was cooked to perfection, and the cream brûlée was absolutely exquisite. My waitress was extremely friendly and personable and gave us great service. I would recommend Houlihans to anyone who wants a great dining experience with a wonderful atmosphere.

After having not been impressed by this place on our last trip to Columbus, we stopped here again because we were staying at the Marriott again and just wanted some appetizers and a couple of drinks in the afternoon. How could they screw up chicken nachos, a margarita and a Dos Equis? Stale rubbery chips, chicken that must have come... More
