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.

Good food, but really s-l-o-w service

We were seated right away, but sat there for almost 15 minutes before a waiter came to give us menus. After we ordered, we waited a super long time for the meals to come out (there were only three of us, and we each only ordered an entree). When the food finally came, though, it was excellent!

Went here pre-parade on Saturday March 14 and this place was rocking. Very crowded but that was to be expected. Service was decent but it's the crazy atmosphere that made this a great time. Everyone was there for one reason and it wasn't to have quiche.

I would definitely recommend this restaurant. The service is great and so is the food. I ordered some meatloaf and potatoes not knowing that I was not going to be able to finish it. Our waiter was extremely friendly and extremely knowledgeable about the food. First we ordered some appetizers that were out of this world. I also ordered a... More

I have been to this restaurant many times but this time I had a great experience, both in service and food. My server Ana was awesome. Though bust she was there at the right moment when it was time for a drink, time to order food and with the check. She was friendly with a big smile and seemed to... More

Decided to go here because it was very cold outside and you didn't have to leave the hotel (Hyatt) to go. I had the Salmon and asparagus, the salmon was a little on the dry side and the asparagus were a little under cooked for me. Service was great and Mojito was good as well.

There wasn't anything missing from the buffet and the chef-made omelets were delicious! Every item was delicious.

Our hotel was close and is a good option to the hotel restaurant. We went a couple of times for their breakfast buffet that was very good.

Great breakfast buffet. I took a walk a few blocks around the hotel I was staying at and happened upon this restaurant. I had eaten at a Houlihan's once before and liked the food and decided to give the breakfast buffet a try. The food was great and the price was even better. Breakfast buffet for $9.99.
