Sometimes at work you have to go to some chains for lunch. This is a fine place for that. You will get some good things to eat, and some OK. It is what it is. People are always very friendly and the location is great....More

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.

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.
