Went to the Sunday breakfast buffet. It was very good especially at $9.99. It was close to the hotel which was very pricey for breakfast.

The staff at Houlihan's were super friendly and jovial. The food tasted great and was very filling. For comfort food, try their mac-n-cheese appetizer. The parmesan-crusted Talipia was divine.

We really enjoyed brunch. Variety of hot and cold items to choose from at a descent price. We also went back for supper. Best mac & cheese i have had. and the cocktails weren't to bad either.

Downtown / The Loop
Often visitors' first stop in Chicago, The Loop is a
good starting point to sample the city's energy and
flavor. This central business district boasts
Michelin-rated restaurants, upscale hotels, premier
shopping, and enough arresting architecture to keep
your camera busy for hours. You won’t find too many
photo galleries of downtown Chicago without a shot of

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.
