Perfect Ahi Tuna lunch entree on the house! The menu looks so good it was hard to settle on that. The dinner menu looked even better. Pretty pricey for meals but quality presents itself here. I've been a here to eat a few times in the past as well and enjoyed all my visits. Sign up for their emails and... More

We were shopping in the Lansing Mall about dinner time and decided to eat at Houlihan's. We had been there before, but not for quite some time. We were extremely pleased with our choice. The meal we had was excellent and the price was quite reasonable. Great food in pleasant surrounds with good service and quite affordable; you can't ask... More

If you are looking for cheap and delicious food go to Houlihan's for Happy Hour!! They have 14 mini appetizers on the menu and great drink deals. It is so worth the price. Last time I got 3 different appetizers for my meal and the wine flight (5 small glasses of wine) and I paid less than $25. I couldn't... More

Place needs a serious refresher. Has that typical chain restaurant vibe. It used to be a hopping go to place for happy hour. Then they did away with it! Now it isn't anything special. Not worth a trip.

Houlihan's has mice! My party and I all saw it with our very own eyes. Unfortunately, I witnessed their management and kitchen staff see it as well-- after which, management didn't seem apologetic. Hopefully, this place will receive a thorough inspection by the Ingham County Health Department!

I had the best time at this place. we were visiting after work with friends, and the waiter i cant remmber his name but he was fantastic. The shrimp that i orders was not appetizing at all, so the manager took it off the bill we ended up spending about 200.00$ that night. The manager showed no great customer service... More

I went with a large group and everyone enjoyed their dinner. I had the Tuscan white bean salad which was a combo of mixed field greens with a lovely balsamic vinaigrette and toasted baquette slices on the side with goat cheese. Also I had the baked potato soup which was delicious. The wine selection is plentiful and I like the... More

Stopped in for a quick lunch and got the Grilled chicken salad with berries and goat cheese. It was pretty good, just thought it'd be bigger being that it seems me back $14. But, it's Houlihans so I expect quality eats and that's what I got! I sat at the bar trying to watch the Lions game but if you... More

Erised around 530 on a Wednesdayand was seated immediately. Waitress was very accomidating with special food requests. Scallops were to die for. A little pricey but the chef seasons perfectly!!!

I love this place, however, I don't get over there much because I live on the East side. I've had plenty of lunches and dinners here, always fantastic. I can now say I've tried their happy hour specials and WOW they are perfect! Cheap! Good! Food! Drinks! Can't wait to return!
