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.

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.

My husband and I visited Houlihan's after a tip from an acquaintance. I had the potato soup and grilled cheese. He had the pot roast mac and cheese, which was a special. The meal was great! I swear this restaurant used to be in Raleigh, NC when I was small. I can't be sure, but I just remember something very... More

Visited the location off Michigan Ave in Chicago . It was a cold day and my wife and I decided a good bowl of soup would be great. We had the Potato and French Onion soups and both were very good. No bread with them though? We each also had a side salad that was pretty good tasting but was... More

We were on the prowl for a beer and a snack. We had just left a place that was too noisy and found another that was almost as bad. The food we had was good+ , the beer very good. The noise was headache quality. A nice place but off my list.

What happened to Houlihans? It used to be such a fun place. Perhaps the bar is better. The food is mainly fried and overpriced. When my salad had bacon, I didn't realize they meant tiny bits of bacon, barely visible. Same for the "aged cheddar" in the salad, it was barely visible shredded, and hardly any of it on the...

I went into Houlihan's in Chicago to order a Coffee. I asked the waiter for a coffee to go and I was told that " that will take a long time" as he ran past me. As I was leaving I overheard a gentlemen ask for a table and was denied one. He then asked for a hamburger to go... More
