Met some friends there last night prior to listening to the Republican convention. The tuna tartar salad(small) in combination with a previously ordered nacho tray with some Bud lights (special price)made for a great dinner. Other diners also had salads which were enjoyed as well as their well known burger. This is probably one of the best Houlihan locations because... More

I'd like to review a dining experience. I really would, but today was a non-dining experience. I arrived after the lunch rush, was seated on the patio as requested, and then saw no sign of life from the staff for 20 minutes. At that point, my mood was ruined, and I gave up on them. Someone was saying good-bye to... More

My family and I went after a day long of driving and we're exhausted. Our server was Alex and she definitely gave us a bright friendly smile, with great service. I wish I could say the same about the food.

This is a regular stop for friends of ours so we meet them there on occasion. The staff is friendly and knowledgeable. We got a deal of half price for a bottle of wine. Not to be missed. We shared two appetizers with the steak sliders and sausage flatbread. The flatbread was the winner although both were good.

My first time here was a great experience. It was my first trip to O'Fallon and they were open later than most restaurants there. Houlihan's in the DC area used to be a favorite of mine so I figured why not give it a try. Thai wings are pretty good. Salmon was not bad either. Did not enjoy the ribs... More

It was my first visit but won't be my last. The wait staff was attentive and in good spirits. It was a pleasant experience and worth the price. The food was cooked to perfection and seasoned just right. I will gladly eat there again.

Went for lunch on a Friday afternoon and other than one other table of patrons the place was empty. The service was good, which is why I gave it a rating of very good. The menu was limited in choices and seemed like it was geared more towards the ladies lunch crowd. The food was good don't get me wrong,... More

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.
