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.

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

What a super restaurant, it was a Saturday night but it wasn't obnoxiously loud...but the bar wasn't that full. There were a good amount of folks around our table, but I didn't feel uncomfortable or clostriphobic, you know? People were dressed from business dress to casual and the atmosphere made it work somehow. Maybe it was the upscale food and... More

Located off the lobby of the Columbus Marriott, this restaurant has very good food. We ate dinner there and the scallops on asparagus risotto was delicious.

Houlihan's in Columbus GA not only has great food, but an awesome staff. Everyone that works there is exceptional and knows the meaning of customer service. I would highly recommend this place if you are visiting the Columbus GA area.

We ate here several times during our stay at the motel. I have to say that all of the food was exceptional. The breakfast buffet was outstanding. Very tasty! The scones was to die for! The staff was very friendly. I would highly recommend this restaurant. I can't wait to return in two years when we have the Army reunion... More
