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.

Best of the chains locally

Nice atmosphere and a great Tuscan bean salad. Beats Fridays and Applebee's locally. Nice local golf course nearby.

I went to this location with my family this month. The first thing that stood out to me was the outstanding hostess. She was so friendly and very helpful. She seemed to be very knowledgable of the restaurant and accommodated my family perfectly. I think her name was Charley. This girl needs a raise. Good job Charley!!

My wife and I come here all the time from nearby Stephens City and we love it. In our opinion it beats most of the restaurants in Winchester which is a bigger town than Front Royal. The variety of options is great and the quality of the food is always really good too. Seems like it's a little-known spot and... More

Ordered the chipotle nachos and sliders. Both were very good like the food usually is here. Planned on dessert but changed our minds due to poor service. We were the only customers seated in the bar area but were pretty much ignored. Once the food was delivered, that was pretty much it. Twenty-five minutes went by before the server (also... More

Always love the food here. Higher quality for the area. Normally this place is clean, except for today's visit. There is breakfast remnants under/near several tables. Not sure if they had a really busy breakfast but even after we are our lunch it was still there. I would have thought at least a manager would have noticed it since the... More

We ate here twice as we were staying at the Holiday Inn. Not quite sure how to rate it. We arrived a bit early for check-in so opted for lunch before hitting a couple wineries. The lunch was quite good. I had the French dip with black beans and rice and the wife had a burger and fries. The French... More

Don't be fooled that it's connected to a hotel. Houlihans makes fresh meals. They are all very good. Haven't had a bad dish. Been staying at hotel for a while and Houlihans is the restaurant of choice for a great meal. Lots of options.
