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.

We went in late Saturday night and the place was packed. We ordered and before we knew it the food was there. Nice surprise. Good food and the staff was really friendly and on the spot with everything.

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

Good for atmosphere and watching sport while drinking a beer .. Food is ok at best .. Service is standard . The waiter for our table was not on top of her game at all. Go here for a beer and the atmosphere .. Don't go here looking for a dinner that will blow your socks off

We took our lunch break at Houlihans today and Casey gave us great service! It was a little crowded when we arrived, but she took great care of us. There were around 11 of us and no one waited on anything. The food was just as good as the service. I was upset at first that the Thai Chicken was... More

NEVER a waiting line, always great atmosphere, outside sitting, awesome food and good service. Love this particular location and it is our go-to place at work. The inside is beautiful, too. I wonder if the hotel is as pretty. I seriously go there all the time.

Thank mp0ssa

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.
