Stopped here while wife is meeting friend for lunch. Beer is good, chicken tenders were "rubbery", only way to describe them. Could not get my Tab 4 to connect with any of their WiFi. Works other places. Empty at the bar at 12:30 this Friday.

Dated. Decent food, drink and service. Blast from the past. Off busy Rt. 1. Needs some redecorating. Overall, OK

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.

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.
