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.

My family and I love this place!! Menu seems a little limited however anything I've ordered was amazing! The potato soup is made in house and to die for, the asparagus is so delicious, the wings are perfectly cooked! All in all great place! Service, food, drinks and we love the patio !!

My husband and I along with our friends went to Houlihan's for Sunday lunch. We ordered the large crusted tuna salad. The $14.95 salads were so small that we left hungry. They were tasty but tiny. Our friend had salmon and asparagus. Again, there was not enough food and the salmon was dry. There were only a few pieces of... More

The drink and appetizer specials are good. With drink specials running from Sunday through Thursday, and appetizer specials all week. My husband and I sit in the bar area, and the service is decent and the staff very polite. If you are traveling and what a relaxing atmosphere I highly recommend. If you are in the area and want a...

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.

I've yet to have bad service, or food at any Houlihans I've ever visited. Every visit is amazing! Great food, great prices, and cold beer! Ambiance is also a plus!!

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...
