My wife and I stop in here for a late lunch early dinner often as it is located close to work. This time we shared a Lump Crab Melt and a Salmon Cesar Salad, and a Margarita Sauza Gold. All I can say is "Yummmmmy."

At least three people at our group of five had special requests and all were accommodated . No returns, no reorders, everything was great.

My wife and I are liking Houlihan's more and more especially on Wednesdays when they offer to take 20% off your bill, except drinks.

This places keeps getting better. Aby, our server, provided my wife and I with excellent service. After getting us some drinks, my wife ordered the Salmon Caesar Salad, and I ordered the Meatloaf entree. Folks, the Meatloaf dinner was awesome. Please try it.
