Stopped by for dinner. Warmly greeted followed by great service from Manuel who recommended an excellent dish when we were going to order two of the same dish. The mahi mahi was delicious and more than an adequate serving for one. Regrets? We didn't have room for dessert!

It took a while to get notice, then it seem like a very dark atmosphere like a bar. Seem more like a bar then a restaurant. I have been to the one off of route 270 and a completely different atmosphere.

Jason was excellent. Will come again because of the fantastic service. Gave that down home service. Felt like family.

It's connected to a hotel. There was a conference going on in the restaurant and had high hopes for this restaurant. The restaurant had alternative meals and that is why I came here. Our server kept on forgetting our drinks and served all the meals at different times- really a snail's pace. All of your meals were blah.

The staff were pleasant and the food tasted good. Nice place to sit and check up on work before returning to my room (in the Hilton) for the night.

Houli's may not be the best, but for being second, it tries really hard! If you've read some of my other reviews, you're aware that when I know the restaurant's a big box, a dime a dozen in the region, or a national chain, I cringe at the inevitable industrial-strength kitchens, automaton staff, factory-like dish production, over-the-top and get-your-attention outrageous...

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.
