When you first look at the menu, it looks like the same casual American fare offered by many other restaurants. But there are two important differences. The first is that many of the menu items have just enough of a twist to make them interesting while preserving their identity-- nothing here is too weird. Secondly, and more important, is the...

My husband and I with some of our friends decided to visit Houlihan's for the first time yesterday after we saw their Valentine's promotion on Facebook. We felt welcomed once we arrived at the place although the place was busy, the red lights all over the place and the red roses that were given to us at the table made... More

Attached to Crowne Plaza Dulles. Its got great food. The drinks were strong. Prices a bit steep for portion but acceptable I guess. That is the end of the good. Service is very slow. The place had 25-30 people left on a friday night and they closed at 11 pm!!! What the hell. We were told to move across the... More

I really enjoy my experience at this restaurant. The greeter Allie and my waitress Tren made my experience even more enjoyable. It has been a longtime since I have enjoyed both a great service and a great meal. Thank you both.

The firecracker shrimp and grilled salmon are both decent. The portion sizes seem a little small for the price. Service here is subpar. Our waitress was polite but seemed overwhelmed. The manager there was not friendly - She seemed very cold and disinterested, and gave the impression she just did not want to be there. I don't expect staff to... More

Houlihan's is a nice place for food and drinks. Service from the kitchen was a little slow but this could be improved if they had a great staff. It is within the crowned Plaza hotel, offering those staying there and nearby a great place to eat.

Food is just okay, my friend got served a suspiciously looking beer he decided to exchange and we waited a bit long to get the menus while the waiter was busy on the phone, but it is deal that comes with hotel bars probably.

First time at Houlihan's - awesome food and service! Cathy was our server, very personable and knowledgable of the menu. She suggested I try the stuffed chicken and my partner had the pot roast. Both were delicious and Cathy was a delight. Will definitely be back soon!
