The restaurant offers a limited breakfast menu but was open at 6:30 which made it handy so I tried it out and was not in the least disappointed I ordered an omelette and it was great. The wait staff kept my coffee cup topped of and brought my check at the appropriate moment.

Beautiful and clean. Menu selection attempts to be gourmet food, but falls short of even just okay food. The burgers are good, but everything else I have tried wasn't able to live up to my expectations. The last time I was there with friends, our meals all came out cold! And most of us only had the meatloaf with mashed... More

We tried it for dinner because it was close but the food was so-so. Nothing special. There are better restaurants in the area.

Would not have expected such a nice restaurant attached to a hotel. It was clean, the staff was friendly and helpful. The food was very good. Would have given a five star except for the prices which are a little high but seem to be in line with the higher restaurant prices in the area.

I was pleasantly surprised with this restaurant. The food is high quality. They have good happy hour specials. I had the meatloaf, and it was awesome!

We ordered four entrees - two of which were below par. The salmon was under cooked and had to be sent back. The fish in the fish in chips was a soggy mess, under cooked and not even a decent fish. The server didn't feel it necessary to have the manager stop by or offer compensation.

I ordered biscuits and gravy hoping it was going to be good. I was let down again the gravy has a really strange taste. I don't know what it is. The home fries and bacon was good. I was not impressed. I don't think I'll be back here from breakfast.

We had a lovely evening meal and breakfast in Houlihan's as we were staying in the Blue Ridge Shadow hotel in the same building. The quality of the food was good - there was a lovely jambalaya on the dinner menu - but the prices were on the expensive side. We ate there for the convenience and were not unhappy... More

We have dinner at this Houlihan’s about once a month, and have found it to be consistently good. During our most recent visit a couple days ago we again found the experience enjoyable. We were greeted immediately and seated in a comfortable booth. Our server (Carina) was polite, knowledgeable, and attentive throughout our visit, and took great care of us.... More

My husband brought me to Holiday Inn in Front Royal just to take me to Houlihan's. The food was fantastic - a little pricey - but worth it. LouLou was so friendly and took good care of us! Can't wait to have another escape weekend and come back!!

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.
