.......loving the new menu additions that include some incredibly tasty low-carb options. It used to be a foregone conclusion that your menu choices would include something fried or high calorie in most chain restaurants. But now the menu has so many more options that could be classified as 'healthy', that dining while trying to adhere to a diet is so... More

Houlihans is a very good place to visit for a good variety of foods, however I found that the waitress was a bit bit over zealous and kept coming to the table every couple of minutes asking if "everything all right" or "is there anything I can get you" and because of this this it spoilt the evening a little...

We sat in the bar area to watch football. The bar lady efficiently ran both the bar and all the tables on her own and with a smile. We tried a few appetizers, which were very tasty, as well as burgers later. These were satisfactory but not as good as the appetizers.

College football was on many of the televisions and people were relaxing and enjoying a drink, food and conversation. The waitress was delightful and her service was on point. As for the food, I...

Stopped at Houlihan's on the way up to Connecticut. What a great find...I had the Reuben with fries and it was a generous portion. The sandwich was very filling and I enjoyed the nice decor and atmosphere. Service was friendly and attentive.

It's my second time there and both times the food was amazing. Their spinach/artichoke flatbread........I have no words. The staff is always professional and accommodating. My family loved the food that they ordered. Will definitely return!

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.
