Stopped at Houlihan's on the way up to Connecticut. What a great find...I had the Reuben with fries and it was a generous portion. The sandwich was very filling and I enjoyed the nice decor and atmosphere. Service was friendly and attentive.

It's my second time there and both times the food was amazing. Their spinach/artichoke flatbread........I have no words. The staff is always professional and accommodating. My family loved the food that they ordered. Will definitely return!

Pretty good spectrum of appetizers, soups, salads, burgers, sandwiches and full entrees. Ample selection of beers, wines and mixed drinks. Interior is nicely decorated to give some atmosphere. The servers were friendly and cheerful. Food was good, no complaints.

I have been to Houlihan's many times and always liked their food. I have even gone since eating gluten-free, before they marked it on the menu. I generally know which foods to avoid. Now, the new menu actually marks which foods are gluten-free (not certified). The only thing on the entire menu that they list as gluten-free is French Fries.... 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.
