Good for: Bar scene
Dining options: Late Night
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.

“Wait staff unsure of New menu Lots if flies”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 5, 2013

Confusion over who had our table delayed our order but once our waitress came she was pleasant. Happy hour drink prices are a plus 4-6 then I think again at 9-?
Martini sampler flights were fun to try.
Food was good. Mango shrimp salad had good flavor.

Joshua F, General Manager at Houlihan's, responded to this review, July 7, 2013
Thank you very much for the feedback from your recent experience at our restaurant. We sure have rolled out an exciting new menu and our Team is working very diligently to ensure we can answer and describe every detail of it every time. I do apologize for your experience concerning some flies, we have a top notch local exterminator that does a nice job for us and works very hard to keep us fly free. I am happy to hear that your server and the food was good, we hope you will give us another opportunity to serve you very soon.

Sincerely,

Joshua F
General Manager

“For late night its a good place”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 8, 2013

Looking for place after 10 Pm to be able to get a good hamburger, or light meal with a expertly made cocktail then Houlihans is the place to go, Good food served a little slow, but that is to encourage you to have anther drink or refill on your coffee. A relaxed time after the dinner crowd leaves and the place is nice.

“Great food and service”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 24, 2013

Had lunch here today, Sunday, and we were the only ones in the place. 6" of snow apparently kept the customers home today. The food was excellent and the portions were great! The service was great, though since we were the only ones there how could it not be?

“Left me wanting more!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 24, 2013

My son called ahead because we were a party of 10 and they had our table ready when we arrived. We have 3 children under 7 and it was appropriate for them. They were given placemats w/colors to entertain them. I liked that they offered a "lighter fare" and I ordered the salmon which was fabulous! Loved their mashed potatoes too! This was all a perfect portion size, probably the amount we should be eating at a meal! Great service, great food....we'll return soon!
