Dining styles for all and good food.. gluten options too!

Houlihan's has always been one of my favorite places to eat. Even after having gluten issues, Houlihan's hands down is one of the most gluten friendly corporate run restaurants. They do not have a separate kitchen which may be an issue for celiacs. I had a cheeseburger with a gluten free bun... read more

We sat in the bar and ordered small plates. Great food, price, and service. Chicken wings are awesome!

Will in Lansing, Michigan my wife and I tried Houlihan's restaurant out. It was close to the hotel and I had heard good things about it. Well I was wrong, hostess didn't seem to be to happy with her job as she sat us. Miss personality! The waiter wasn't much better, we only wanted water and he looked put off.... More

Recently took advantage of their free birthday meal offer. Great food and service. I always enjoy eating there. They also list gluten free items on their menu - another bonus.

I signed up with Houlihan's to receive their emails, and they have some really good deals. My husband really enjoyed their meatloaf. I had to taste it, too, and it really was very good. The waiter was also very helpful. I'm glad we made a reservation, because we were seated immediately. We will be going back.

This is unusual for a chain -- the food is all fresh and is not all pre-prepared frozen stuff that is reheated. I am especially fond of the house salad, which you can order with blue cheese chunks. Yum. The Brentwood Chicken Sandwich is my favorite. The Black Angus Burger is delicious, too, as are the fish tacos. The atmosphere... More

We go by this place several times a week, and decided to eat there for Valentine's Day because it was the only restaurant with an opening. The tuna appetizer was fabulous; the scallops and tenderloin with lobster were cooked to perfection. The sides of mashed potatoes and orzo were also very good. Our waiter, Jason, was pleasant, knowledgeable and very... More

Food and drinks were excellent, but our waiter for everything wrong! Even with his constant clarification after we had ordered. First the bartender had to come clarify what drinks we ordered, then salad was brought instead of soup. Then the waiter asked the vegan at the table if she ordered the medium rare on the steak. Finally the checks were... More

Wasnt expecting such a nice place in a mall. Waitress was spot on in helping us pick what to try off a big menu. Wife had the scallop special and I had the filet steak dinner. Calimari and shrimp appetizers and chocolate coffee cake for dessert. Good drink selection also. Price is higher but better product. Enjoy
