Restaurant details
Good for: Bar Scene
Dining options: Breakfast, After-hours, Reservations
Neighbourhood: Downtown / The Loop
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.

I went for dinner on a Saturday evening with a friend and her food wasn't exactly what it was supposed to be. Not only did the manager comp her meal, but he also gave us dessert. The excellent customer service that he displayed made what could have been a terrible visit an excellent one. Because of that I returned for brunch that Sunday morning.

We wanted something local that wasn't a chain and read there was a good buffet here. We'll... The atmosphere was just fine. Calm, quiet, friendly. The food? It was a solid basic brunch. But! The omelette station made the whole thing come together.
Just remember, while the brunch all you can eat is just 9.99, drinks are on top, so $3 for coffee and suddenly you're missing the bakery down the street on price.
All in all we would go again.

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.
