Houlihan's is our go-to restaurant. Everything on the menu is excellent - we've never been disappointed. For a change, try the scallops with risotto, or the chicken tortilla soup with a chopped salad. Can't make up your mind on which dessert to have? Get the triple sampler! WARNING: You'll have to share it - it's huge (and yummy).

This part sports bar, part restaurant is attached to the Holiday Inn. It is a chain but is really a cut above most. It is richly appointed and very comfortable. We chose a booth in the bar. The place was busy on an early Sunday evening but service was brisk and friendly. We found the drinks generous and the menu... More

Stopped while traveling for late lunch at 2:00. Only a couple other diners in the place so wait staff was cleaning and replenishing. Service was very fast and food came out hot and fresh. Our drinks were replenished without prompting. I ate off the "nooner" menu of lunch combo specials: half French dip with a cup of potato soup. Ample... More

It's a nice restaurant and bar. But the staff needs much work and management seems clueless. I've stayed at the Holiday Inn and Suites here several times and have eaten here a few times. Ate dinner here last night. The only real issue is how slow the servers are and it was not busy when I was there. Getting drinks... More

We only ate breakfast here, which was good with plenty of choice, but we felt it was expensive compared to other places we have stayed. If you can get a bed & breakfast deal through the Holiday Inn it is located in you will save money. We did not eat dinner here because again we thought it expensive an there... More

Passed this place & randomly stopped, but wouldn't return. It's attached to a hotel,so it might be the only option for some. The waitress was friendly, but not attentive;the menu was rather typical with nothing that stood out. Had the veg flat bread pizza. It was tasty except for the goat cheese & the entire half inch of the edge... More

We ate here because it had fairly good reviews on here, but also we were staying at the HI next door. Our server must have asked us at least 10 times during the meal was everything alright, hows the ribs, hows your drink, how are you getting on, etc.....it was very intrusive and un nerving! I had the beef hot... More

My wife and went to Houlihan's after a visit to the local flea market. My wife ordered a wrap. It was supposed to have pepper jack cheese and cilantro, but that was missing. I ordered the fish tacos, but they were rather bland to say the least. However, the Liter sized Long Island Tea more than made up for it.

It is not the confident place if you are not staying at the Holiday Inn. It was nicely decorated and the menu had a good selection. We went on a Monday for lunch and the restaurant was not busy at all, in fact there were only 4 other tables of people. The service was excellent. The food was good, a... More
