We took our family of 6 for an early dinner. It was our first time dining at Houlihan's. We were very impressed! The food was fresh and tasty without being overly complicated. The kid's meals come with a lot of options and free ice cream which was a fun treat! My husband was thrilled with all of the gluten sensitive... More

I dine at this Houlihan's often. Their filet is sooo good. Unfortunately the service has been going downhill lately, seems like an entire turnover of waitstaff. We had a large group (18) for my 60th birthday party & management probably should have had more than one waiter servicing our group. My drink order was messed up three times. I asked... More

Last night I took my Mom out to Houlihans in Lansing, MI. I wanted to treat her to dinner and we had talked about it all week. It was her first time there. I always order the same thing off the Happier Hour menu the Ahi Tuna and a Mandarine Martini. I usually sit at the bar because I often... More

Have only eaten here once before and it was years & years ago, so decided for my birthday it was time to go again! The service wasn't the greatest, she really wasn't paying very good attention. Had to bring up a couple things to her thru the visit. Our food was really good though. I would love to go back... More

Nice atmosphere. Nothing special, but appears clean and is comfortable. Was with a group of friends so it took a little over an hour before our food arrived. Portabello burger was tasty, but small. Loads of French fries served with the burger.

We came here for my husband's birthday dinner with his grandparents. Tried to order the calamari, they were out. My grandmother tried to order brussel sprouts as a side, they didn't have them. I ordered the spiralized noodle salad, they were out. Seemingly half their menu wasn't available, and what did come out of the kitchen wasn't that great. Really... More

My sisters and I arrived. A total of five of us. There wasn't a warm nor friendly greeting. Was a little busy. We asked to be seated in the dining area. Another family came in that was seated in a booth that was a family of four. My sister asked the greeter why she automatically became defensive turned up her... More

We visited there for lunch. The solid came quickly. The next took FOREVER ! My wife was ready to leave when the waitress said I will check on your food. A while later it came to our table COLD. And the fish was over cooked. We will not go back.

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.
