Highlight of our visit

I had been looking forward to this for some time, and it lived up to my expectations! The atmosphere and food were perfect. I had a huge salad and my husband loved the seafood bake.

We planned a date night with "Dinner and a Show". The "show" being the local production of West Side Story (7:30 curtain). We had a reservation for Saturday night early (5:30) as we wanted to park near the show venue and walk to Houligans restaurant. Ok. So I am all about dressing up for a night out with my Hubby...

We are fairly regular visitors to Houligans! The staff always makes us feel like they are glad we are back with each visit, which makes this an easy choice. The interior of the building has a lot of character with the dark wood. It's right downtown so you can easily make Houligans a stop on your night out. They have... More

On the spur of the moment, we went early Fri nite about 5pm so we wouldn't have any wait time. We had a cozy comfortable booth with immediate service. We ordered a couple drinks that were delivered quickly and tasted top-notch. We both had the NewYork Strip Med-Rare and that is exactly how it came...Perfect! Our very tender Steaks tasted... More

The food was ok and we felt it was overpriced. Had the beef medalians and they were a bit chewy. Crab cakes were flavorful but rather thin. Rolls were tasty but question if the are baked in house. We suspect they are store boughten and then just top dressed with their garlic sauce/butter. we went on a Tuesday evening and... More

I have no idea why this isn't the #1 rated restaurant in Eau Claire. The steaks are the best in town, they have fantastic drinks and the staff are friendly and extremely good at what they do. If you're visiting Eau Claire, go here.

So the decor is early 70s supper club and gothic church. It's a bit on the run down side. She has seen better days. Now let's get to the food. Over priced for what you get. I had the half seafood bake ($19) and it was basically 3 shrimp and couple of tablespoons of lobster meat in (what tasted like)... More

Went to Houligan's for a wedding. Nice place, very interesting place. Food was great, as well as was the staff. Had a large group but the food was very good for everyone. I had their blackened pork and it was fantastic. I meet the chef and was very impressed. He was friendly and proud of his food and service. Talked... More

We had Steaks and Prime Rib between the 4 people, and there were nothing but Happy Faces and good comments about the food.These steaks seemed aged and quite tender, thePrime Rib was tender and juicy, the way it should be. I would check it out, its worth the trip.
