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.

While the menu is slightly limited it offers a wide range of food specialities. All portions are very large. Our party of three had a different selection each and the ladies were not able to finish the plate. Additionally they offer a good range of wines and mixed drinks.

Food was okay, less options for Vegetarians, ambiance is okay. Hotel Crowne Plaza Dulles Airport has its customers have breakfast in Houlihan's. Breakfast was Okay but there weren't many staff members to take care of customers (refill empty serving bowls, etc.)

Hoolihan's restaurant and bar at Crowne Plaza Dulles airport is very nice. Dining room + outdoor tables are really interesting especially in these spring season.

Stranded at the Crown Plaza during March snow storm, for two days, the restaurant was great! I enjoyed all aspects of dining, breakfast, lunch and supper. Service was very good, breakfast was buffet and very good, at lunch I tried their potato soup which was very tasty. Later in the evening had a Reuben (one of my favorites) and it... More

They provide variety of meals including salmon, steak, meatloaf and fajitas. Also good selection of appetizers. Great for a date. Overall food well prepared and prices are reasonable. Sometimes service is a little slow.

If you are okay with airline food, you will be okay eating here. And considering it is near Dulles Airport, it is a perfect way to transition. We have eaten dinner here before. At breakfast today, the coffee was weak. When asked about it, they said they were low on coffee so they purposely made it weak!

I had a forced overnight at Dulles Airport. I chose the Crowne Plaza Hotel largely because they had a Houlihan's restaurant on the premises. I enjoyed my burger. It was cooked perfectly. I sat at the bar, and the service was good.
