This is a great place to go for a quick meal. Their menu is varied and there is something for every taste. They have a large bar area with screens for game viewing.

This week Houlihans hosted the November Porsche club of America, Chesapeake region social. 33 members came out on a Tuesday night to laugh and chat. We had a great time and it's all due to efforts of the staff at Houlihans. Attentive service and delicious food in the large room in the back. They even handled the separate checks request... More

It's been a long time between visits. I first visited when they opened years ago. I'm glad I gave it another try as my hubby and I frequent pretty much the same places over and over. We were nicely greeted by staff upon arrival. The restaurant has a nice vibe to it - looks like it would be great for... More

Nice happy hour spot for smaller groups (less than 6) at the bar area. The restaurant area is able to accommodate larger groups, as we were here for a birthday lunch of about 11. My visits are mainly in he bar area between 4 and 8 o'clock- happy hour is from 4-7. For HH you can eat pretty well for... More

For some reason, Houlihans was one of the few restaurants in the area that we had not yet visited. We decided to give it a try on the weekend and were pleasantly surprised by our first dining experience there. Service was outstanding starting with the friendly greeter and a very good server -- no indifferent service here. Prices were moderately... More

Houlihans happy hour is from 4-7pm and is available thru out the entire restaurant which was good considering the bar was overflowing at 5,but the restaurant was wide open. It had been about 3 years since we had been here and we had forgotten just about everything about the place. The HH prices were good with $2.25 16z drafts and... More

We visited on a Thursday evening and enjoyed our food. They were not overly busy but it seemed like we waited for quite a long time and for just a table of three, the wait seemed excessive. Once we ordered the very nice waitress came back to tell us they did not have one of the dishes we ordered which... More

This is the most un-chain multi-location restaurant - smile. The chefs create interesting and changing menus, while keeping their patrons' favorites of course - ingredients prepared on site and sourced locally. It's true, we often go there on their e-list promotions night (Wednesday) - and have never had a bad meal. That would be better said as - we have... More

Been here multiple times. Good food and good service. Gets busy. It's a chain, but this is the only one I've been too. Food gets a little fancy. Chef gone wild.
