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.

“Wonderful meal and walk!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 9, 2012

No rush...loved the fish tacos and steak. They were even willing to make me a Salty Dog!

“Inconsistent (crap), but prices aren't bad”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed July 4, 2012

The second time in three months I've eaten at Houlihans -- both times for business lunch and ordering the So Cal Fish Tacos.

Back in March, the fish tacos were spectacular, as they had baked or broiled tilapia in them along with fresh salad filler. This past week it was totally different and truly crap. It was deep fried (tilapia?) filets laid in the torillas with salad filler. As if they bought frozen fillets from Mrs. Pauls, fried em and slapped them in tortillas to serve. No flavor either, btw.

I made the mistake of ordering the side of ginger coleslaw. It arrives dry -- no moisture on it from a vinegar or cream-based dressing. Plus, the slices of bell pepper in it were clearly a couple days old (they were dried, shriveled somewhat).

Fire the daytime chef and all kitchen staff CLEARLY. It's as if the horrible daytime chef from Ruby Tuesdays nearby now works at Houlihans. (At Ruby Tuesdays, they'd serve stale, bad-tasting potatoes in their lunch buffet potato salad.)

“A solid choice for dinner”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 30, 2012

Very good service. Good menu variety. Nice atmosphere. Maybe a touch pricey. Still, a good choice and it was walkable from our hotel. ,

“Good Travel Stop”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 20, 2012

We stopped here in December on our way back home and had a good meal. Service was friendly and good. This trip, we searched it out again and had just as good of an experience. We'll be making it a regular stop as we travel north or south.

“Pleasant surprise!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 11, 2012 via mobile

We were part of a bus tour so our expectations were not that high. The ma
nager stepped onto our coach, welcomed us, explained the seating plans, the dinner options, he then escorted us to a line of waiting servers who led us to our tables mingled with regular diners, we didn't stand out like Bus Tour. The menu choices were limited but there were no complaints from our table. Food was excellent; service outstanding--we all commented (50) of us on our good dinner.
