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.

“Not the typical Houlihan's”
Reviewed April 2, 2013

run more like a local restaurant than a chain, excellent food, reliable service. Ate there three nights because other restauarants in this area are limited anyway and we were sure we would not do better, and the menu was big enough to do so.

“Don't just get soup...”
Reviewed March 8, 2013

They really frown on people coming for a light lunch of soup, they get really annoyed to the extent that they go off about it with other wait staff in front of the customer. Not a very welcoming attitude.

“Excellent service”
Reviewed March 6, 2013

We ate there this past weekend and found the food to be good and the service was excellent! Our waiter was very good, he didn't hover but he was there when we needed him without having to search him out. The manager was also very professional and on top of things. We were staying at the hotel and weren't sure about eating here due to price. However, they were priced the same (for what we ate) as the Applebee's down the street...only Houlihan's tasted much, much better. We will definitely eat here again.
