Food was ok, a good variety. Service was good. This is a chain restaurant. Not that much more to say.

My wife and I went to early dinner on a Saturday night. We tried their 2 new items on the menu. The first was the appetizer Calamari, Lightly fried and tender, which was very good. The 2 dipping sauces were too small of an order...More

When in NJ, I always stop at the closest Houlihans for a buffalo chicken and cappuccino. During this trip I sat and the bar and I must say that the service was exceptional. The food and drink were great as well. A significant Improvement over...More

Been here a few times in the past. Always found the food good, value good, and good service. A great place to go with kids. Service is always attentive. I would definitely recommend for a good, comfort food place to eat.

While this is not a budget choice, the old adage applies you get what you pay for. Steak and salmon were both excellent. Menu could use a refresh.it's been the same for over 5 years. Good service , a good place all around!

Our favorite place for ribs. Tried ribs at other restaurants, but none come close to being as good as Houlihan's. Early Bird special is a great deal. Lots of good choices and food is consistently good.

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.
