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.

Always a Delicious Exerience

A beautiful, warm, early spring evening so we sat outside on the patio. Although it faces a very busy, main thoroughfare, there was no car noise or exhaust smell. The service was okay, although we had to ask other waitstaff to find our waitress a couple of times...she never came to the table to... read more

From the greeting at the door until you are seated all the staff is friendly. We were early for dinner thus seating was not an issue. Ordered iced tea which is among the best tea served in a restaurant. . This was followed by salads for two in the party and chicken tortilla soup for me. The salad was fresh... More

Raining today as it has been for days in Texas, so we head for a long lunch someplace and Houlihan's is the winner. Entered an almost full restaurant as it seemed everyone else may have thought the same way. In spite of that, we were seated immediately and a waiter showed up seconds later to take our drink order. He... More

Standard food at this standard restaurant. Nothing exceptional, nothing to remember. One good point : you can eat outside (if you can stand the nearby traffic noise). Service was soulless.

We did a family trip to Dallas over the weekend. We decided to stop by Houlihan’s for dinner. It was our first visit to the restaurant and we had not tried the brand/chain before. Once we entered the door, we had to wait about a minute to be greeted and seated. That evening there was no line; so we went... More

Have visited 3 times in the last 2 weeks. The place is convenient with nice decor, lots of menu choices, good food quality and prices are reasonable. Wait times for drinks are longer than they should be, often your food comes before your drink order. Servers do not check on their tables very often so when you need something you... More

Had lunch there, and had the Quiche with a side salad. They were very busy, but delivered in about 5 minutes and it was really marvelous. Every time I go to Dallas and go shopping, I'll stop here for luch.

This was not really my day but my wife's birthday and when she got a birthday coupon from Houlihans, we quickly decided we would have lunch that day to celebrate her birthday. You know what---we have never had a bad lunch at Houlihans, so the decision to go was easy. Was seated promptly in the dining area even though it... More

Nice menu with a lot of choices. Lunch is served up in 20 minutes or it is free. Food is excellent and they top it off with a free chocolate chip cookie at the end. Will even get you a drink to go if you want one. Little touches make all the difference.

The Grilled Atlantic Salmon is wonderful. I dine here alone occasionally, and always feel welcome and receive excellent service. The atmosphere is "romantic" and comfortable in the evenings, and I enjoy the patio during the day. The wine menu has excellent choices and is reasonably priced. I always look forward to going here.
