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.

Tuscan Bean Salad Almost Too Pretty to Eat!

Wasn't very hungry so ordered a side dish called Tuscan White Bean Salad that was both a delight to the eye and to the palate (and my wallet). Mostly marinated cannellini beans, layer with micro greens and balsamic marinated finely chopped tomatoes. They call this a salad but the greens were almost... read more

Grilled salmon was excellent! My wife really liked her Powergreens salad. Crispy chicken tenders were below average which dragged down my rating from 5 stars to 4 stars.

I came with a large group of 50 people. The food was fabulous and the wait staff was wonderful with arranging seating for all of us to sit either with or nearby each other in our large group. I had a few appetizers which were outstanding!

From the greeting at the door until you are seated all the staff is friendly. We were early for dinner thus seating was not an issue. Ordered iced tea which is among the best tea served in a restaurant. . This was followed by salads for two in the party and chicken tortilla soup for me. The salad was fresh... More

Raining today as it has been for days in Texas, so we head for a long lunch someplace and Houlihan's is the winner. Entered an almost full restaurant as it seemed everyone else may have thought the same way. In spite of that, we were seated immediately and a waiter showed up seconds later to take our drink order. He... More

A beautiful, warm, early spring evening so we sat outside on the patio. Although it faces a very busy, main thoroughfare, there was no car noise or exhaust smell. The service was okay, although we had to ask other waitstaff to find our waitress a couple of times...she never came to the table to check on us. The food was... More

Standard food at this standard restaurant. Nothing exceptional, nothing to remember. One good point : you can eat outside (if you can stand the nearby traffic noise). Service was soulless.

We did a family trip to Dallas over the weekend. We decided to stop by Houlihan’s for dinner. It was our first visit to the restaurant and we had not tried the brand/chain before. Once we entered the door, we had to wait about a minute to be greeted and seated. That evening there was no line; so we went... More

Have visited 3 times in the last 2 weeks. The place is convenient with nice decor, lots of menu choices, good food quality and prices are reasonable. Wait times for drinks are longer than they should be, often your food comes before your drink order. Servers do not check on their tables very often so when you need something you... More

Had lunch there, and had the Quiche with a side salad. They were very busy, but delivered in about 5 minutes and it was really marvelous. Every time I go to Dallas and go shopping, I'll stop here for luch.
