We visited there for lunch. The solid came quickly. The next took FOREVER ! My wife was ready to leave when the waitress said I will check on your food. A while later it came to our table COLD. And the fish was over cooked. We will not go back.

I'm very sorry to hear about this incident. We strive to provide great service, but clearly missed the mark during your lunch visit. We'd love the opportunity to make it up to you. Kindly email me directly at social@houliahans.com so our team can reach out. Thanks, Katy, Houlihan's Marketing More

Ran out of food. Food was cold. Average tasting felt like a more expensive Applebee's. Server was nice.

I live close to this place but for some reason never went much. I don't know why either. The food is really good, the wait staff is great. Just visited again tonight. Damn the food is good. The beer was cold and the bartender Audrey (we eat at the bar) was great. I really need to keep going back. I... More

I absolutely love their happy hour. Great drink specials, amazing small plates. You can make an awesome meal for less than $8.

Our waiter was also lackluster, doing only the bare minimum, he was nice but totally disengaged from providing a welcoming experience. He came frequently to clear out plates when we clearly weren't done. Took too long... More

Met here with a fairly large group of retirees. The meal was good but took a while to get to our table and we were there after the lunch crowd cleared...there was only one other table of people in the restaurant.

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

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.
