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.

I celebrated my birthday at Houlihan's this week with my husband! We had a wonderful lunch - and excellent service! I'm looking forward to going back soon! The filet mignon was so tender, and my husband loved his chicken. We ended the meal with a delicious brownie sundae! Thank you Houihan's for making my birthday such a wonderful experience!

We enjoyed the the wide range of Menu selections found here. They do have also a very large selection for Gluten Free dinning. The food was just as great tasting as the presentation was.

We normally have a pretty good meal here and good service. Not so our last meal here the other night. Salad and fish tacos looked very unappetizing b/c lettuce looked brownish and old (maybe pre-shredded too early in day?). Then we discovered a tiny fly in one of our water glasses, alas, at the END of the meal after drinking... More

We go to Houlihan's as often as we can. I love the seared ahi tuna appetizer as a meal. I top it off with the edamame and the pretzel bread sticks. Also the almond crusted talapia is a great choice and the small is a whole filet and plenty for a meal.

We went to have my husband's birthday free dinner. I had scallops and he had salmon. Service was good. His salmon was slightly overdone and my rice had too much oil but the scallops were perfect. My salad was wonderful. My daughter loved her pot roast mac n cheese.

I really enjoyed this lunch. I had to have the chicken tortilla soup as I really liked it at another Houlihan's recently. It was just as good this time. For my meal I had the chicken tenders, but was a bit hesitant as they sometimes are a bit rubbery in restaurants. My fears were unfounded, as they turned out to... More

We went to Houlihan's on a Tuesday evening, about 7:30 PM. We wanted salads. Our server appeared as expected and that was the last bit of normalcy. As we sat in the booth, they were sticky. The table top was OK at best but.. my hair stuck to the wood trim above the seats. You know, the wood trim in... More

The food is very good. The Chicken Parmesan is the best Chicken Parmesan I have ever had. However the food always takes about at least fifteen minutes or longer. The reason is because they do have a kitchen and they make all the food themselves. So it's quality over how fast everything is, but if you are really hungry don't... More

Crystal, our server, on Wednesday, Jan 22, 2014, was terrific. Very attentive, made suggestions, knew the menu and was able to describe anything we asked about. She made it a very enjoyable experience.
