Great food, sampled a lot at a patio birthday party celebration on St. Patrick's Day. Food was super tasty, lots of drink choices, service was great and the band was awesome. Can't wait to go back!

Stopped in on a whim for lunch (we had missed the turn for our intended spot). We were not disappointed in either the meal or the service. Seemed to be a light crowd for a mid-week lunch; probably indicative of a menu that's a tad pricey for the typical office worker.

We were not impressed with the food or service. We are not planning to return. The places appears to be pretty busy when we pass by. Maybe they know something we don't.

Finally had a chance to get together with our best friends and chose Houlihan's. They provide 3 different atmospheres in one location. You can enjoy the outside and get loud as you watch golfers go by. You can also sit at the bar where they have very personable, fun and outgoing bartenders and watch your favorite sporting event and have... More

Today the food was excellent! This is an improvement over the last year. I ordered the calamari appetizer and it was outstanding. I believe the menu said it would have banana peppers, and it didn't, but I really preferred the calamari anyway. The arugula salad with the calamari was great. The wedge salad was excellent. It had fried polenta wedges,... More

The steak was perfect, the beets are the best and the salad wedge was amazing. Our server treated us like family and her recommendation was exactly what I wanted. I enjoyed every moment and had to eat slow to keep the moment alive. Needles to say I will be back many times to try other menu items.

We arrived at near sunset time and wished to eat outdoors watching the clouds turning colors as the sun sat. Unfortunately the smell of cigarette smoke was very strong and we had to settle for eating indoors without a sight of the sunset. The service and the food were OK. We told the waiter that we were not in any... More

Houlihan's is our "go to" place for a consistently excellent meal. The food is masterfully prepared and the presentation is awesome. I get their emails so I frequently am reminded of specials, changes on the menu, discounts and yes a birthday present! The management here has been consistently very polite, professional and accommodating. I'm always excited to patronize this fine... More

Stopped in to Houlihan's after church, we had an email for a free entree since it was my husband's birthday. We were seated quickly, the place was clean and not crowded. We have eaten here on several different occasions and while it is not our favorite place, we know we will get a decent meal here.

I stopped by Houlihan's for the first time in several years for a light lunch. Working with the bartender, Amber, I chose a lunch special that consisted of a house salad with vinaigrette. half a chicken wrap with extra crispy fries and an ice tea. My bill was <$15 and the food was very good. The French fries were cooked... More

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.
