Dined for lunch on Sunday - food is routinely very good here, and the atmosphere is friendly. Recommend the flatbread and tortilla soup.

LOVE this restaurant. Food is always fresh and alot of variety from fish, steaks, salads, sandwiches, soups. Went for lunch yesterday with Mom and enjoyed their Restaurant Week menu special. We had firecracker shrimp for apps, then potato soup, risotto with scallops and mini dessert. Everything was fantastic. The manager walks around to check on guests and service was perfect.... More

Love coming to Houlihans, they never dissappoint. The service is always on point and staff can tell you about any items listed on the menu, which has something for everyone and food is presented on nice white plate/bowls and is very good. Chicken Alfredo was awesome, mom loved her scallops, and my sister loved her pot pie and especially her... More

We have been coming to this Houlihan's for many years now. They have never disappointed us. Their food is made from scratch. Servers are very knowledgable to the content of the menu and what ingredients are used to make the dish. Our favorite server is Leah. She will make sure your dinner or lunch is special.

This was a very pleasant experience and much more than I anticipated from a chain restaurant. The menu was creative and well put together. The décor lends itself to an upscale restaurant. The service was ALMOST spot on but did have to wait a awhile periodically. Being a special occasion we allowed the kids to order what ever they wanted... More

Joined a friend here for a Friday night dinner. We both ordered salads. I had the Oriental Chicken and she had the Chicken Caesar. Both were ample size and fresh:-) I had the tomato bisque soup which was delicious and my friend had the onion soup which she said was amazing.

The food is always good but it seems the main meal menu has slimmed down a bit. It's more appetizers and salads than I remember. Service was excellent and it's just a good place to be in for dinner.

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.
