We've been there several times. One of the perks are the organic items on the menu. Been there as a couple, group and friends. It is located in a Holiday Inn, Blue Ridge Shadows.

All their food is made from scratch and it is wonderful. I wish more restaurants would take this approach. Their service is outstanding. I wish we had a Houlihan's in our town.

Don't order the steak. The ribs are very good, the seafood also. Large servings. Love the Blueberry Lemonade and the Chocolate Cake. It is a nice go to restaurant in Front Royal.

Back in the Dark Ages, my family and I always enjoyed Houlihan's in the Metro area. Always a special treat. It's Front Royal location at the Holiday Inn has brought some city-style to the town. Items are always attractively presented, service great, and the food really good and dependable. Lunch specials reasonably priced. Ample parking. It's nice not having to... More

Houlihan's is very convenient for me. The food is good most of the time but has its bad days. Service is always good. It is mid price which is good for people on a budget. They gave a good bar scene with many TVs to watch sports.

The staff were great, the food arrived piping hot and tasty, the cost was decent. They weren't crowded and the smells wafting through the place just made my stomach growl even more upon being seated! Good stuff people! Give 'em a try!

I always go out of my way to eat here when ever I am in the area for work. I enjoy a house salad with an appetizer as my dinner it is so filling! I love the char crusted a he tuna and the pot stickers and the chicken lettuce roll ups!

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.

Thank Richard M

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.
