Endless soup and salads made age eat lunch. Leave room for the cake and ice cream. There is a good healthy selection of choices on the children's menus

We went here on a Saturday afternoon. The restaurant has nice atmosphere. We got the stuffed mushrooms which were tasty. I got the scallops; they were too salty, slightly overlooked and I think I got four? Not impressed. My husband enjoyed his fish and chips and enjoyed them. Our waitress was inattentive, but the hostess and other staff were friendly.

The first thing you will notice is that the friendliness of the staff and the super clean restaurant. The food was very good. One member of our party got a side salad and was disappointed in the size but other than that it was very good.

Drinks are good, and the food is great. You could always have appetizer and share along with a drink and your good to go.

Be sure and order the mushroom appetizers, they are the size of apples! The steak was very good and cooked the way it was ordered and very friendly staff.

Once seated, be prepared for a two hour meal. The service is slow. Most of the food is mediocre. The one exception is the baked potato soup.

We were just passing through on our way to St Simons Island and stopped here for lunch. Boy were we surprised! Not only was the food delicious, but the service was outstanding! Our server, Oliver, was very attentive, but not intrusive at all. We ordered the Firecracker Shrimp and Parmesan Frites to share and I had the Tuscan White Bean... More

Houlihan's is one of my favorite restaurants in Columbus, GA. Because it is such a rare restaurant I always try to stop in when I'm in the area. Until this visit, I've never been disappointed. This time it took a long time for our service to begin and the food was not very tasty. Our server was great once things... More

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. Located inside the Marriott hotel with new outdoor deck seating.
