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!

We go to this Houlihan's location quite often. I had the grilled chicken which was very good. The portions are a nice size and the service is always good.

The wait can be long but for a chain restaurant it never disappoints. Family favorites are the jambalaya and chicken fajitas and the peanut butter crunch for dessert. Staff is nice - don't sit in the bar if you want to hear what your table...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.
