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, good atmosphere, great wait staff!

Met another couple here for dinner and really enjoyed ourselves. We were seated on the patio. We started out with some appetizers, steamed edamame, and some drinks, long island ice tea and mini martinis. All were very good. We wound up having soup for dinner, French onion, which was tasty, not... read more

It had been awhile since we had dinner at Houlihans. The service seemed to be lacking, mostly the cooking crew. Do not order the fish and chips. Not at all crispy. My husbands food sat under the heat lamp way too long. The onion straws were limp. Because of the quality of the meal, I would consider this visit too... More

It was just not worth the expensive price. Left not satisfied and not wanting to return. They did not give you enough. $4 for a side dish that only served 8 pieces. NOPE will never go there again.

Most of the food was good. Get the spicy chicken nachos! The chicken tortilla soup I had was very bland. We had four in our group. We had the nachos & shrimp as appetizers, one had soup, two had soup/salad, one had a cheeseburger with fries and one alcoholic drink. Our bill was almost $100. Definitely not worth that. We...

This is a run of the mill, average chain restaurant. Nothing on the menu was bad, but nothing was spectacular either. The burger was overcooked, despite asking for it to be cooked medium. The waitstaff is really slow, so you will not be able to get in and out very quickly. If you are staying at a nearby hotel, they... More

Our dinner at Houlihan's this past Sunday evening was extremely good. From the mushroom appetizer, the steaks, and into desserts, we were very pleased with the food. Even better than the food was the service. I intended to note our server's name so that I could give her extra kuddos, but I forgot to do that before we left. I... More
