Welcoming Staff Greet You

The food and service at Houlihan's is outstanding. A Lansing mainstay for decades, the menu is a mix of old and new, and quality is seen and tasted. It is nice to frequent a restaurant that employs the same staff for decades, as is the case with Nancy the delightful greeter and hostess. She... read more

I loved the lettuce wraps! The service was great in the lounge. It was not too loud and we were seated right away.

Service was great. Wonderful steaks and burgers, top quality meat. One place where I trust the quality and kitchen when it comes to meat selections. Went above and beyond with birthday dinner coupon and complimentary drink for birthday.

Last-minute Friday night outing to Houlihan's. We reserved a seat ahead of time and arrived to a lobby full of people waiting for a table. Our call-ahead reservation got us seated right away. Appetizers of goat cheese and artichokes in a panko crumb breading - delish! Mushroom/Arugula flatbread - not so great. Fall-off meat ribs - excellent. Good margarita, great... More

Definitely the best place to eat at the Lansing Mall! The menu is varied and the food is good. The restaurant is clean, the service is friendly and the prices are fair. Try the seared scallops with a side of Tuscan Bean salad.

We have had dinner here which was enjoyable however our lunch was average at best. Two of us had the french onion soup - delicious - but the sliders were poor. The other member of our family had tomato soup which was horrible. Service was almost non-existent, we had to search out our server to ask if the food order... More

We had the Tuscan bean salad (delicious) and baked potatoe soup for starter. Our entries were the Brentwood chicken sandwich and the veggie black bean burger - both great.

I've been to Houlihan's a few times recently and have ordered the pot stickers to start and the Asian Chop Chop salad for my main. Last week I decided to order the pot stickers and salad with crispy chicken. The pot stickers tasted good but were burned. The salad was gross. Wilted, wet greens, chicken that was flavorless and had... More
