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.

“Outside patio”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 13, 2013 via mobile

This place has an outside patio (granted, it's in a parking lot). The happy hour prices are reasonable, and the food is quite good for a chain restaurant. Nice place to meet for drinks and people-watch

“Had a great time, love the food and service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 3, 2013

Met friends here and had a wonderful "small bites" supper. We all don't want a whole side of beef for dinner and these people understand that. Drinks were well mixed and delicious, shared a dessert and it was great too.

“High quality small options like 4 ounce petite filte mignon”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 25, 2012

I can never finish a steak, so their four ounce petite filet was perfect for me. It was a nice cut of meat and came with some broccolini which was cooked perfectly. I also got a french onion soup which was very good. We were seated quickly and got good service. I will go back.

“delicious food, pricey drinks”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 19, 2012

I love their food here. Their calamari is different, just how I like it, with lemon on the side & scrumptous 'secret' dipping sauce. DROOL!!! THeir burgers are BIG & their menu rocks, period. Only thing I huff & puff about is that their drinks are on the pricey side. I do drink the (alcoholic drink) Texas Tea which is in a huge mug glass & gets you tipsy! Two of these & i'm done. It's a hit and miss with fast service. Sometimes they're on point, sometimes it's hard to get the waitress...

“Nice upscale spot”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 3, 2012

Houlihan's is a chain; however, it is very good. We've been a couple of times and will definitely return. The service and food were both nice. The small outdoor patio is great for spring/fall in TX.
