The food at Houlihan's is generally excellent. They have a very nice selection of drinks and a good set of wines by the glass. The problem is that their kitchen is insanely slow. On our most recent visit, our table of 5 waited one hour from the time we ordered until we got our food. The restaurant was not full... More

My partner and I have had our annual office party here for several years. Houlihans Bridgewater never disappoints. The table is set and ready when we get there with 16 ice waters. The wait staff is polite and professional but not overbearing. The food comes out with good pacing and is delicious! Tku Houlihans for making our party so special!

We have been here a few times over the past two months. Never a bad experience. Food is good but a bit expensive. Service is great. It's worth it.

Had an enjoyable time with some long time friends, where we could actually chat, eat and be merry. Food was good, service was also, and a good variety on the menu to accommodate everyone. We knew some of the places on football night, would leave no room for conversation, but this place was ideal.

Haven't been here in a while. Menu change removed one of my favorite dishes. Tried a tilapia dish off the specials menu with pineapple infused rice. It was very good and would recommend it. Very friendly service.

Description
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.
