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 breakfast

We stopped here for breakfast while staying at the attached Holiday Inn. They had a basic buffet, with eggs, potatoes, bacon, sausage, biscuits and gravy, cereal, fruit, and pastries. We were very pleasantly surprised at the price: $9.99 each. The food was good, and our server extremely... read more

As soon as we were walking up to the door we were greeted by a staff member as they held the door open for us to walk in. We were seated immediately. They were showing the world cup at the time but i just asked the bar tender, to turn it on and he did. We talked with our server... More

Our party of three dined at Houlihan's twice over the past few weeks. On both occasions the server brought our entrees and set them on the table while we had barely started on our salads. We were given the choice of letting the entrees get cold while finishing the salads, or putting aside the salad and eating the entree. Definitely... More

You want a place that has excellent staff and a good menu, this is the place to go. Every single time I go here, whether with friends or visiting family, the staff is excellent. They are friendly, quick, conversational if you so choose to have a convo, and make you feel very welcome, especially to those visiting town. Houlihan's is... More

Ate here for dinner again, 2 years after our original visit. We arrived at a busy time as the KState basketball game had ended a short time earlier. The restaurant was croweded but we were seated quickly. We started with an appetizer of the "famous shrooms" which were very large and tasty. Our dinners were very good and the portions... More

We were in town early on New Year's Eve for an appointment and while in town opted to have our New Year's Eve dinner at Houlihan's. They were wise enough to offer their evening specials all day that day, and we had a wonderful three courses with perfect service. The stuffed mushrooms were a delight, I had a filet and... More

Even though this location let go one of the best managers that has ever been at this location, which is just terrible. I still enjoy the food and drinks at this restaurant.

I had a great Kansas strip steak one night, but at a lunch a rather flavorless salad with grilled chicken. And, the iced tea didn't taste brewed.

I love their stuffed shrooms and their fancy plates just put that elegant touch to their already awesome atmosphere!

As I stated in my review, good food and a nice selection of drinks. Staff was friendly and helpful. Margheritas were very tasty, variety of tequilas.
