The appetizer was very tasty. Nicely fried shrimp with a fresh flavor. The burger was cooked perfectly medium as ordered. The lettuce and tomatoes were nice and crisp. Hand cut fries the perfect accompaniment. Friendly attentive service. Good prices.

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.
