Good for: Bar Scene
Dining options: After-hours
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.

My colleagues and I ate here after a day working at a nearby customer. We had 9 people at our table so the waiter did a good job of keeping up with the drinks and food orders. I had the NY Strip steak which is not my favorite cut of meat. This was cooked to perfection and was delicious. The appetizers were also very good.

There's an energetic vibe to this Houlihans that we're sure they work to create and keeps the crowds coming.

Our server (and trainee) consistently provided excellent service throughout our meal. The food was good, although several things needed to be corrected in preparation.

All in all, a cool place to grab a casual meal.

On our way to curl in a bonspiel hosted by the Potomac Curling Club we got off the NJ Turnpike for lunch and found Houlihan's open for lunch. They we're not busy and we were seated in a minute or two. I had the zuccini marinara with grilled chicken and sparkling water to drink. The zuccini noodles we're nice and firm. The mildly seasoned marinara was thick not watery.

A well prepared and well served lunch. I would not hesitate to stop in again if I am in the area.

First of all, we waited 45 minutes for our appetizers, which still haven’t arrived till we got our entrees. In our fillet mignon, the vegetables were still in their preheating wrapping paper! The manager provided us with the explanation that the cook was apparently new. So what? Who authorized this cook to start his/her job without proper training? Also, the least the Manager could do for us is to offer the entire meal for free, which would be a normal practice. Instead, all she offered were free desserts, which by no means was equal to the disastrous experience we received. Our birthday celebration was completely ruined. Please stay away. Badly disappointed.

I'm always impressed with the quality of food and excellent service at the Houlihan's chain. This one was equally good. Tasty hot food, fair portions, friendly staff, and prompt service.
