We go here a lot because it offers a great variety, is super family friendly, and there is never a long wait. We have even done carside service. Waitstaff service can be spotty, special requests (like a side of avocado for a burger) "slip through the cracks" a lot. I would pick it over Applebees anytime. Comparable to Cheesecake Factory...

Houlihans is a very reliable dinner option. The portions are huge, yet very affordable. The salads are the best thing on the menu, in my opinion, but every meal I've had is delicious.

With all the chain restaurants that there are available to choose from, there are good, bad, and ugly. Nonetheless, Houlihan's is a Good one, we will be a regular at Houlihan's. Reasonable pricing, good variety, and decent portions—three ingredients to a good restaurant. I had the Asian Chop Chop Chicken Salad—fresh, original, and flavorful.

If you've been to a Houlihans before you'll likely have the same experience here as other locations. The food is average to above average in quality. Lots of options, something for everyone. Very good salads and appetizers. Entrees are good. Service is fair but not particularly attentive. Lots of seating, never have had to wait.

Went to this place for dinner. For long time we did not go there. At this time it was everything great. We came around 5, it was not very busy, waiter was very nice and polite, we didn't need wait for long time for food and it was fresh and tasty.

We stopped there for an early dinner. We were seated in the lounge which was okay. Our server was friendly but seemed to disappear for periods in time. The menu is large but the food is better than average but not worth driving longer distances to go there.

Had the French onion soup. Good but alot of onions. House salad was very good too. My sis had the Flatbread which she said was good. Wait staff was friendly. They also hosted a paint nite. Had a great time. The staff was very nice and helpful.

My friend and I have dinner once a month and have made Houlihan's our spot! Keep in mind that we normally eat in the bar area and we usually order a bunch of appetizers to share. The food and service are ALWAYS GREAT!!! I would recommend the mini mushroom appetizer and the nachos!!!

Usually any Houlihan's we enjoy, Driving all day I was excited to see this location. We sat at the bar and sat and sat and sat waited and waited, the manager was busy reprimanding the barmaid for the other night. Neither one looked up to say anything. So disappointing. Now the girl is at work upset and nobody is getting... More

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.
