Comfortable restaurant with many menu selections. Appetizers are huge and so are the dinners. Pleasant quick service.

Usually don't have to wait long for seating. Go about 4:00 to 4:30. The Lemonade on a Summer Day hits the spot. Delicious. For Appetizer, the stuffed mushrooms are out of this world, delicious!!!! One of my favorites is the Reuben. Always a nice time...More

Nothing special, but they execute their stand fare very well. Service was attentive. Food was fine and pretty much as expected. Steak Fajita was delicious. Petite filet was tasty.

I love the atmosphere in here. Great for family, couples, business, etc. The bruschetta is by far my favorite appetizer. I could eat that whole plate. Amazing!

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.
