It's been a couple years since I have been here, as we live out of town. We held my mother's 85th birthday party here in August. This seriously has the best food, and service is great. Yes, it's on the pricier side, as others have mentioned, but you do get what you pay for. There were about 20 of us,... More

Let's start eloquently: YUMMY! The food was awesome, and what I had, in particular was "the best of the best" in Filet Mignon--crusted in proscuitta. It was so tender and fell apart without even cutting. Phenomenal! The sides were good, as well, but for me, sides always fall short of a great cut of filet mignon. I also got to... More

Houligan's is the sort of pub establishment that offers a comfortable bar and full menu for diners. The food was delicious and service was Midwestern friendly (a waitress with an appropriate sense of humor.) The bar scene seemed to be picking up as we left, but was quiet through the dinner hour.

This is one of my splurge restaurants, a place to come when I want a hunk of tender beef that has been gently and professionally handled. My favorite dish is a tenderloin crusted with prosciutto, served with the day's crisp-tender veggies and garlic smashed potatoes. Heaven! Have an Irish coffee for dessert. Aaaahh...

Sat at bar and had dinner. Very quiet and almost felt I was here by myself. No bar scene. First time here so I wanted to try the recommended favorites. I had ribeye and seafood bake. Steak was cooked right, med rare. It was ok at best. They advertise 21 day aged choice beef. I thinks it's aged in local... More

Had a really nice time and good food at Houligan's. Our service was good, considering she had a large table right next to us. Old decor, but fine. Our table was a "mini-booth", which honestly was like sitting at the kids' table at Thanksgiving. Would go back.

Too expensive for the food you get. Does have a quiet atmosphere. Just was not impressed with food. I'd give this a so so, I wouldn't go back.

Went here for a family dinner and was pleasantly surprised after not having been for many years. Kind of forgot about it after everything migrated to the south side of EC. They took reservations, which was a primary factor in our selection. Service was slow but they were extremely busy on the Friday night we visited. Glad to see they... More

I've been a regular customer here for years. You can always count on them to provide consistently good food. Steaks are always prepared exactly to order and are very tasty. Other entrees are equally tasty and well prepared. My only suggestion would be for them to vary their menu every once in awhile. But if you're looking for a place... More

We dined at Houligans on August 5th. The restaurant is terrific. The Prosciutto-Encrusted Filet was amazing. My wife had the Seafood Bake with Shrimp and Lobster and it was also off-the-hook delicious. The wine list is very good and our server, Betty was extremely nice and funny. I HIGHLY recommend Houligans if you find yourself in Eau Claire.
