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.

Dinner and drinks were very good. Our server was very personable! Good service and good food! The French Dip and Panko Shrimp were very good.

After being bumped eight times over two days, we ended up at the Holiday Inn near SFO for the night, awaiting hopeful news for flying home the following day. I am not even a drinker (usually I'm the DD, actually), but I must say, they make a great Piña Colada. Also a good Manhattan, and some nice aged Scotch! They also have an amazing filet on the menu, which my hubby got rare, and it was perfect, sides of brussels sprouts and pineapple brown rice were delicious. I had a Caesar salad, and the fried gyoza dumplings off the appetizer menu, both were perfect. My reward for being DD (Yeah, right) was a scrumptious Snickers ice cream pie. OMG, so yummy, and calorie-free, of course (I wish, but given the two days we'd had, I figured I earned it...). Service at the bar was wonderful, we never did make it to a table... But everyone we talked to was super nice, and we left happy and full...

I went there to have a burger and watch a Warriors game. The burger and bun were quite burnt and the help was sitting around talking rather than refilling drinks etc. food was a C- and service the same or lower. Consider other great options close by. Better food at more reasonable prices.

It is difficult to find crisp cold lettuce a great dressing freshly grilled chicken and good sized portion. Filling and tasty. Little pricey but the service and quality made up for it. This is located in the Holiday Inn and you might just miss it if you are not staying there.
