Houlihan's is a great place to eat and just wind down after flying. Great food and relaxing atmosphere. Friendly bartenders.

“Convenient Houlihan's”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 3, 2014

Part of the hotel, you can't get any more convenient. The waiter was excellent. Food was tasty and fresh. It's been a long time since I ate at a Houlihan's. Best meal of my trip.

“Absolutely average”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 30, 2013

Location was average, food was average, service was average.
Lots of average here.

Ordered a cheese burger and it was cooked okay, albeit it was dry, but no sauce on the bun? Why?
Had a side of fries and they gave me 1 tiny cup of ketchup. I asked for more ketchup and instead of bringing me a bottle like most places, they gave me another small cup.

Waiter barely talked at all. I realize that this place is boring but at least try to be engaging. Not mean just kinda weird....

Was not the one who chose to eat here and certainly would not come back as there has to be better options around Dulles Airport.
