We stopped in for dinner and were immediately seated. It took almost 10 minutes before our Server made it get our drink Orders. Our appetizers seemed to take a while and getting side plates took another 5 minutes. Food was good; however, a couple extra Servers might have made the overall experience more enjoyable. Liked the variety on the menu.

We had an early dinner here one Monday night and the service was terrific. They have a great variety of items on the menu, including some lower calorie alcoholic beverages. I had the portabella sandwich and it was delicious!

I had the grilled shrimp and jalapeno mojo. The shrimp was excellently grilled. The roma tomato, bell pepper and the 1/2 potato were grilled nicely. The jalapeno sausage wasn't good at all, it had pieces of hard gristle in the mix. The slices of zucchini and yellow squash were so thin that grilling them turned them into mush. The staff... More

My wife is gluten sensitive and as a result we are always looking for restaurants who know what is in there food. You would be surprised at how many restaurants don't know what goes into their food, but Houlihan's does. There menu has both gluten sensitive and vegan items and they are clearly labeled and they have a lot of... More

Well, must say that what little portion of food that I was served was quite delicious, but the portions are quite small and very pricey. Cannot say that I would be back anytime soon.

First let me say that Houlihans is perfect for our family because we love food and wine and have small children. With that being said, our options for family friendly (and nice) restaurants is limited. We aren't fans of the typical chains so we were pleasantly surprised when we found Houlihans. Best food to order- tomato soup---it's not like any... More

Seared tuna, Tuscany white bean salad, deconstructed chicken pot pie (with a cheddar biscuit "the size of your face"), and cubano rolls. Everything was great, service so-so.

Houlihan's has a warm friendly family atmosphere inside or an outside area with a umbrellas, a fire pit, and music. My and wife and I came on a Wednesday evening when Houlihan's was offering a selection of free appetizers. We chose the Angus sliders; they were fabulous. We then followed up the sliders with a full rack of Baby Back... 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.
