I was surprised how great the service was and the food since the restaurant is tied or affiliated with a hotel. The he staff was pleasant and the steak was cooked just the way I asked

I ate here as it was convenient and in the hotel. Good bar and a reasonable menu for dinner. There is the usual choice of Caesar Salad and meat dishes

Traveling solo, I needed place within walking of my hotel. Houlihan's, fit the bill. I enjoy eating at the bar and was very pleased with the menu. Fried shrimp and chips was very good, the margaritas were good.

We were very impressed with the service and wide variety of choices on the menu, it was hard to decide. The steak ordered medium-rare was actually medium-well but still tasted great along with the extra chews. Everything was delicious!
