Went to Houlihan's before our concert to grab a bite. The place was packed but we found a seat at the bar. The service was a bit slow but we understood as everyone was super busy during Mother's day. The food was great with large portions.

Me and my colleagues were in town for a hotel conference and as we were wrapping up, we wanted to find a good restaurant with good eats. What we got was everything and then some. From the service (shout out to Armando) to the food we extremely pleased. If we're in town again we will definitely stop by.

After spending all day in NYC a short break was called for. We stopped in and found the service friendly and the bar well stocked. They had my wife's favourite red wine and one of my favourite IPA's was in tap. Great atmosphere and we enjoyed a couple beverages before heading into NYC for dinner.

The problem with Houlihan's isn't what it is, but what it could be. The location is excellent. This is a chain restaurant and the menu is pricey, but the food is loaded with sodium and distinctly below average. There are some really good appetizer and drink happy hour deals and it can be a lot of fun during football season... More

The restaurant is very nice, the personnel very willing to ensure we have a great evening. Great food and atmosphere! We wanted to see an NBA game and the waiter helped us to install the right channel, find the perfect places to have good visibility. We would like to come back.

I've eaten at Houlihans before in Florida, and wasn't overly impressed, but this location in Secaucus was great. The food and service were both wonderful.

Generally I am not a huge fan of chain restaurants, but with Houlihan's being 30 seconds from my hotel I thought to give it a shot. Also, I saw an Italian visitor gave a good review, and for Italians to like a place it has to be good. I was not disappointed at all, the food is all very well.... 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.
