Description: 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. Kids have their day as well. Kids eat for free on Sundays 4pm-8pm. For every adult meal purchased, one kids meal off of our kids menu is free.

We bought Groupon deal for this restaurant and had dinner there last week. We were there little before 6pm on a weekday and there were some people around the bar enjoying happy hour but we were the first customers in dinning section. The restaurant's interior looked nice and the waiter was very friendly. We ordered seafood entrees: Seared Georges Bank... More

I'm from out of town, so I just went to the restaurant in the hotel - Houlihan's. I didn't need anything else. Everyone was so nice, and the food was great. Potato soup was very good, and I had the special Chicken Potato Verde Enchiladas. It was really unique and full of flavor. Wine prices seemed a bit high, but... More

Delicious food, great service. Excellent buffet breakfast with friendly staff. The lighting inside the restaurant is a bit darker but the outdoor seating area is beautiful.

Slight mix up with our initial drinks order as the first waitress couldn't understand all of our orders. When they did arrive the beers were a served in a nice 22oz glass. Potato Soup was well presented and delicious. Creamy with spring onions, cheese and bacon triangles on top. Service of the main course wasn't the quickest, but the meatloaf... More

We first found Houlihans off I95 at exit 92 in Florence GA when travelling. We have been there twice and delicious and superb service, even at 9:30pm.

We had eaten at this location in the past and enjoyed it. They have a full menu, including appetizers and dessert, but I enjoy it because they have a large selection of dinner salads. Everything was very fresh and tasty. They have outdoor seating, and while it is on a major road, it's set back far enough so you don't... More

I ate here almost every night for months since I was staying at the hotel. Wendy (the person who takes your room orders) was outstanding. She never messed things up and she had a complete grasp of the menu. I stopped going there when she left because my orders were constantly messed up or I would have to wait over... More

I did not sit at the bar, which might be a decent place to watch MNF or some other sporting event. My review is based solely upon the dinner I ate there. I ate here because it is located in the lobby of my hotel. The food was not terrible, but the quality certainly was not high. It was clear... More

Stopped for dinner and were planning on going another 4 hours. Houlihans has a broad menu and is a national chain. Prices are moderate and usually the food is good. It wasn't top notch but I was very tired and will give them the benefit of the doubt. I have eaten there many times over the years with no complaints... More
