Had the opportunity to visit Houlihans in Arlington, TX. Again, the food and service was truly outstanding. Had the tai chicken, spinach and shrimp along with Mai Tai refreshments. Both food and refreshments were outstanding. Also, to my surprise, they offered a military discount to...More

Enjoyed a free Birthday entry with my wife at this fine restaurant. The food is always good. Service can be better if waitress was more attentive. This is one of your preferred places to come for good food and ambience. We like their happy-hour specials.

We thought this might be a Bar type restaurant but were pleasantly surprised, we are not drinkers and were very comfortable. The food was delicious, presented nicely and very flavorful. Excellent French Fries and Apple Pie!

Loved the live music! Great server! Disappointed in the food! Lasagna and salad good. Sent short ribs back (no charge). Got calamari (not too good, kinda scary looking) and stuffed mushrooms (just ok). A disappointing experience...but a fun venue!

I'll start by saying that I do like the decor and atmosphere better than many of the other casual fare establishments in the Highlands. The menu is diverse and not too pricey. Our waitress was sweet and just the right amount of attentive and offered...More

This place was really a surprise to us. We driven by here many times and finally stopped and tried it. First of all we were greeted very warmly by the hostess and taken immediately to our table. The menu is not huge, but it has...More
