I suggested Houlihan's because I had a great mushroom soup at the Houlihan's in Lake Genieve Wisc a number of years ago. While the one in Oak Brook was good food, it wasn't anything special. A very decent place to eat.

We ate here twice during our stay at Oak Brook. Both times the food was delicious and the server was friendly and attentive. The price was affordable based on the quality of the meal. We would return if we go back to the Chicago area again.

Finally finding it was well worth it. Having been to Houlihan's back home, we were hoping--. The french onion soup was wonderful as was the French Dip Handheld. The... More

We have been to this restaurant many times but never ate dinner in the "lounge" area. This was the best experience we had at this restaurant. The atmosphere was wonderful, as well as the service and delicious food! We are planning on going back on New Year's Eve for dinner with friends. We will definitely sit in the lounge area... More

Well with all the coupons this place throws around, and you are shopping at the Mall, you can expect a safe, ordinary meal. Nothing special, nothing unusual, but dependable.

Nice atmosphere and decor inside. The menu seems a little limited but we enjoyed our asian salad and pot roast with mashed potatoes. Good location and parking garage right outside the front door was convenient.
