This restaurant / bar is popular with locals. It is even better if you sign up for e-mail and text updates for Freebies. We got 20% discount for dining on a Wednesday evening. The food is good too. My wife ordered seared large scallops with resortto rice which is cooked to perfection. I have a 9 oz sirloin steak, medium... More

My server, though nice, forgot my water and though I ordered a J Lohr Chardonnay, I was presented with a J Lohr Merlot. Listening skills, not good. No mustard or ketchup delivered to the table with a hamburger.???? The table behind me walked to the bar to get their drinks of pepsi, no ice, and water. I tipped her since... More

Very nice restaurant with excellent service. Portions were a little on the small side but okay if you add an appetizer.

Love this place for Casual get togethers. My favorite dishes are tortilla and baked potato soup. Their flatbread and salad as well as calamari appetizers are my favorite dishes.

So I recently visited Houlihan's in Park Ridge as my 2nd choice. We had first gone to Holt's in Park Ridge and were sat at a communal table that was so noisy we couldn't talk. So rather than tough it out, we went to Houlihan's. So glad we did! I probably haven't been in a Houlihan's in over a decade.... More

Houlihans was one local restaurant open for a Thanksgiving meal. Some of our family ordered the all-you-can eat traditional turkey dinner; others ordered from the generous menu. Prices were excellent as was the quality of the food. We waited a while for our reservation, but it was worth it. Our waitress was pleasant and accommodating. One of our reasons for... More

The restaurant changed its menu, my wife loved and I mean loved the almond crusted Tilapia. They took it off the menu, and she has never had anything else, so she had to try something different, Spiralized zucchini, with chicken. I guess spiralized must be the new in thing, because I don't even think they used a quarter of a... More

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.
