The food is ok. A little overpriced but worth the stop. If you have a fear of close places you may feel uncomfortable here.

This is my Mom's favorite restaurant so it was an obvious choice for an early Mother's Day lunch. I had the Asian salad with a glass of their white house wine and Mom enjoyed the chicken sandwich with a glass of chardonnay. Both were great tasting meals and the service was good, but I think their lunch menu is over... More

Great food, Great service. We usually visit here every couple of months, every time the food and service is consistently very good. We usually start with appetizers (Must try their "Shrooms") This is the type of restaurant that you could blindly order anything on the menu and you will enjoy it. You will have your choice of the quieter side... More

And the food when received is always stellar. There is a salad - the Asian chop chop salad - that draws me back again and again. Just... More

Nachos aren't as good as they used to be, mostly processed cheese. The salsa for sure had changed, not fresh anymore. Tasted more like cheap jarred sauce almost like marinara. I was also disappointed they weren't on the happy hour price menu anymore. They now only have a few items you can pick from. Also an Irish bar that doesn't... More

Excellent food. Great service. Close to shopping. Close to hotels. In our 15 years of visiting this establishment, we've NEVER had a bad meal. Sunday brunch is outstanding.

The food and service at Houlihan's is outstanding. A Lansing mainstay for decades, the menu is a mix of old and new, and quality is seen and tasted. It is nice to frequent a restaurant that employs the same staff for decades, as is the case with Nancy the delightful greeter and hostess. She makes you feel welcome and exudes... More

I loved the lettuce wraps! The service was great in the lounge. It was not too loud and we were seated right away.

Service was great. Wonderful steaks and burgers, top quality meat. One place where I trust the quality and kitchen when it comes to meat selections. Went above and beyond with birthday dinner coupon and complimentary drink for birthday.

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.
