We have eaten here before and the food has always been good. This time we just had drinks but they seemed pretty expensive.

Nice, reasonably priced breakfast in the Holiday Inn Hotel. The decor is warm and friendly and the staff was excellent.

Atmosphere varies from cozy for two all the way to by the bar, a bit rowdy on game days. The food has always been good, as described on the menu or by the waitstaff, a good variety of beverages to choose from. The tapas tables seating is actually comfortable, not always true in all cases. The waitstaff are knowledgeable and... More

Great service. I watched the ball game, had a couple beers and ordered the Parmesan Frites (fries). They were delicious with three dipping sauces. I ate at the breakfast buffet there the next morning--scrambled eggs, sausage, bacon, two kinds of hash browns, biscuit and gravy, English muffins or toast, danish, the usual. It was all good food.

You know its a good restaurant when people from the town go there to eat. Really nice no servers on cell phones the prices are not to bad. The bar tenders are really nice as well. Even if your a Alabama fan they are really good to you. Happy hour drinks are not bad.

I hadn't eaten at this local hotel restaurant for some time and thought I ought to give it another try. On the plus side, the ambience is pleasantly unobtrusive (I was particularly gratified to find no TV screens staring me in the face, the only visible one off in the bar area), the servers personable and efficient, and the food...

Eaten here a few times over the years, conveniently located directly across from Kansas State University. The sliders are delicious. I finally tried scallops here, not too bad! Clean, friendly and decent food for the price.

This restaurant is attached to the Holiday Inn in Manhattan KS. It is a full service restaurant and the food is very good. We were in there three times. Each time there was a mistake on the guest check that we had to point out to the servers. First, we got the wrong check. The next two times they left... More

Went here for dinner on a Saturday night about 5:30 pm. Place was less than half occupied. We were seated and spent 8 minutes in a booth, waiting for service. We were passed by 5 different servers, only 1 who was serving anyone. The others were busy gathering in a group and just standing around. We left, being told to... 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.
