I'll start by saying that I do like the decor and atmosphere better than many of the other casual fare establishments in the Highlands. The menu is diverse and not too pricey. Our waitress was sweet and just the right amount of attentive and offered a few suggestions. Our meal and dessert were just okay. However, I am willing to... More

This place was really a surprise to us. We driven by here many times and finally stopped and tried it. First of all we were greeted very warmly by the hostess and taken immediately to our table. The menu is not huge, but it has a wide variety of entrees. Soups, salads, sandwiches, burgers, steaks and comfort food. All of... More

We came for my birthday free entry. Everything was purrrrrrrrrfect! We sat in the bar to take advantage of the Happy Hour specials. The server/bartender was quick and attentive. The food tasted great. We really enjoyed our visit. Thank you Houlihan.

Houlihan's is one of my favorite restaurants. Besides the food always tasting fresh and looking appealing, they mark the items that are Gluten-sensitive. I avoid gluten due to allergies and joint pain, and it's great that a restaurant is straight forward and sensitive about people who have gluten issues in their diets. My favorite dishes are the scallops, sirloin and... More

Stopped during an impromptu Friday night date night. Started with the white bean hummus. Delicious. I had the French onion soup and a side Caesar salad. Perfect sized portion. The Hubby had the KC burger and loaded baked potato, which he also enjoyed a lot. Our server was Miranda and she was pleasant and helpful. It has been a while... More

My wife and I tried in on a Sunday night. Nice decor, very modern, very nice, but it was also dark at our table. So we used our cell phone flashlights in order to see the menu. The pot roast and the Chicken Thai Salad were very good. The bar was quite busy that night, but the dining area was... More

We were celebrating my son's 19th birthday. We had 5 in our party. Ordered drinks and an appetizer. All arrived and my son was opening gifts and cards. Our waiter was at an adjacent table with his back to us talking to 3 patrons. After about 15 minutes, our waiter still had his back to us, all 5 of us... 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.
