Great place! Good food and staff was wonderful. The mashed potatoes were the best ever. House salad was so fresh and wonderful. Most foods are gluten free and have great flavor. Would go there again!

We had a nice meal here. Menu has a good selection including gluten free offerings. The wait service was good but it took a while for the food to come out from the kitchen.

My wife and I went here for my birthday, as we also had done for her birthday last month, and it was great. The food, service and atmosphere capped the day. The manager also made me feel special and helped make my birthday one to remember. Thanks.

We arrived early on a Friday evening as we were headed to STL for an event. Having not been in awhile everything was new. Would have loved to sit outside but it was a bit too warm, however I have already mentioned that we will try the outdoor seating in the Fall. We were seated quickly and given the menu,... More

You can get lunch or dinner at any time.Some items are very generous in portions, some others not. Pleasant inside and they have a covered outdoor patio. Staff is gracious. Some wierd combinations of foods.

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.
