There's is complimentary parking in the underground garage and a few spots on the upper level near the restaurant . The staff has always... More

Houlihan's is one of the "better" places in a downtown of a suburb that curiously suffers a lack of quality eateries. On the upside Houlihan's is cheaper than a fancy place; the flipside is that it can leave you with a feeling you've paid a buck or two more than you'd like for food that, once you ignore the sometimes...

A nice atmosphere, with a friendly feel. A bit more upscale What is very nice, they include a salad or soup with your entree and choice of two sides. I had the french onion soup topped with cheeses, truly yummy. We generally get the larger sirloin steak and you can even get asparagus as a side and some other unusual... More

I always enjoy Houlihan's in Park Ridge. Went there recently with my sister for a birthday celebration. I had the scallops which were really good. She had the spiral veggie salad, surprisingly good with a delicious salad dressing. Always great service, very friendly and attentive. A great neighborhood place.

As a traveler, a 3 is a good review and means this location is doing their job. It is not... More

Houlihan's is actually one of the few places that still gives you a free meal for your birthday! ($15!) We always make sure we get there for that! We LOVE the "Shrooms"! I enjoyed the Stuffed Chicken Breast & my husband had the meatloaf. Always delicious. The service was excellent! Had a very enjoyable evening.

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.
