The food was great, especially the spinich dip on lavosh cracker and the stuffed mushrooms. The restaruant was a little hard to find if you are walking through the mall... More

I think the title says it all. Waited and waited and waited while two employee saw me waiting to be seated and still chose to turn around, ignore me and continue their conversation. Will never go back.

Nice pub style restaurant, the fish and chips were great! We went twice in one weekend and ordered the same thing. Service could of been better, our soft drinks weren't refilled and couldn't find staff after the food came. Otherwise I would of rated it 5 stars!

This is a very good restaurant tucked in by the escalators at Oak Brook mall. I've eaten many of their offerings, so here's a few favorites from hubby and me: Tuscan Bean Salad, Ahi Tuna Salad, any of their burgers, pot roast, meatloaf (yeah, it's good), flatbreads, Chicken Tortilla soup, Salmon Panzanella salad. I could probably go on and on,... More

Had a casual dinner here to catch up with a couple of friends and to be honest, we just wanted to talk. The waiter was friendly and helpful, food nice, and the half price bottle of wine was a bonus. A good, dependable restaurant!

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.
