Took my children for Easter dinner. They offer a 3 course $19 menu that included appetizer main course and a dessert a fantastic value and very filling!! I’m originally from the Cleveland area and moved to Columbus in 2016 I was very surprised to see a Houlihan’s in the area would definitely recommend and will definitely be back!!
Good place for happy hour great draft beer selection but would like to see CBC.
I visited this restaurant for the first time to celebrate one of my friend's birthday. I was warmly greeted by the host and given information on happy hour on a Sunday, which was great. My spiked lemonade was good. The $19 3 course deal was great as well. The dessert was a little disappointing since it did not come with ice cream, so I was expecting a larger portion. I will definitely be back though.
Very nice experience! Delightful server who was close but not hovering. Cocktails not as great as they usually are. Appetizer came out cold but quickly the issue was corrected and everything else was delicious. Will be back...
Made a reservation for 6:30 pm requesting a booth. We arrived on time but they gave our reserved booth to a walk in customer. We were seated at a table for four. During dinner I got an email from open time telling us we were a no show at Houlihan’s.
I went to the hostess desk complaining that we were not a no show plus they gave our reserved booth to another customer. At that point they went into the computer and put us as arriving at Houlihan’s at 7:30, an hour later than we actually arrived for our 630 reservation.
We go to Houlihan’s very often. This is our first time of having a problem. We hope in the future our reservation won’t be given to a walk in customer. Luckily they weren’t busy and the table for 4 was available to us.
Lots of different choices on entrees. Reasonably sized. Pleasant atmosphere. Staff welcoming and attentive without being pushy. Very enjoyable dinner.
We had fantastic service! We ate in the bar area and enjoyed the breeze from the large screened windows.
Burger was outstanding! And the salted caramel cake was delightful! We will be back soon! It was very busy, I highly recommend reservations.
We have visited Houlihan's twice in the past couple of months and we were extremely pleased each time. The food and service has improved from prior experiences that we had over the the past few years. I used to think that they were, in general, over-priced. I no longer feel that way! If you haven't been there recently, I recommend that you give Houlihan's another try!
Food was very good, the service was friendly and efficient.
The service was great the minute I walked through the door. I was greeted immediately and taken to my table. Within a minute or two the server was there asking what I wanted to drink...it just got better. My friends and I had a great meal and visit. The only slight concern was the noise level was pretty high. But I will be back. Thank you!
Fish and chips Thursday was sooo worth it! The foods was delicious... I do have to tell you that I have always felt that this Houlihan’s is consistent. Never have had a bad experience here. Well worth a “date night “. Good food, great price! Thanks.
First time there! Great first impression!
We had the kindest server!!!! She honestly made the service outstanding. She allowed us to change our order, even though she had put it in, and just had a fantastic demeanor.
We always enjoy going to Houlihan's! The Hostess, wait staff, Managers are always friendly and helpful! We decided to go Saturday evening for their advertised "Corned Beef & Cabbage" to celebrate the St Patrick's Day weekend. My husband and I like corned beef and cabbage so we were disappointed with Houlihan's offering. The meat was tough and dry, the cabbage was not what we expected, and the small potatoes were not cooked enough. It was overpriced at $15.99! We will be back, we still think Houlihan's is great! Every once in a while, things don't go the way they should!
Excellent and consistent. Proximity to home makes it a usual stop
The food was very good, as it typically is and our service was exceptional. They were quite busy for a Sunday evening, but our meals were delivered at the same time and they were all still hot. We were a party of 6 and we each ordered something different. Sometimes this can cause some timing problems, even at top scale restaurants, but not on this night at Houlihans! My only complaint would be that their prices seem a little high, but that's a common complaint from me!
Thank you for the awesome review!
Nicole is an exceptional server at Houlihan's , but Melvin is good also
Thanks for the fantastic review! See you soon!
Houlihan’s is one of our favorite local restaurants for casual food, drinks. Service is always great and we enjoy the atmosphere.
Thanks for the great review!
Houlihan’s is always good every time we have visited.
Love the stuffed chicken breast!
Glad you enjoyed everything, thanks for the review!
Steak was not properly cooked. Asparagus was over-grilled and slightly burnt. Dessert was dry.
Good food and service was good even though the restaurant was packed. Tables are very close together so the noise and privacy levels may be less than desirable for some people
Food and service are always top notch. We consider it one of the best restaurants in the city of Columbus, We will be back again.
Birthday celebration. Server gave us time to talk and order as we were ready.
Absolutely fantastic service and kindness from wait staff. Perfect environment, portion sizes and overall experience!
Friendly service, good food, good draft beer selection, pleasant surroundings. No complaints at all.
Great food and great atmosphere. Went there to celebrate a birthday and the service was great!
Rachel was a fabulous server and we really enjoyed the unlimited soup and salad special. A great way to try new things!
Special served in 2 mins max. Great value. Nice indulgence.
Really enjoyed the food, I tried the steak ramen bowl from the experiment kitchen, it was very tasty. The service was excellent. Will go back.
Fun and nice atmosphere. Good food fair prices.
Great experience. Scallops very good and plenty of them with the large portion. The steak bowl excellent as well. Portions are on the smaller side but was enough when paired with a side salad. Service excellent and reasonably priced. Definitely a new 'go to' place for us.
The food was cooked perfectly - which is hard to do when it was so busy as it was!
This was a perfect location to grab a bite to eat before our event. The staff was quick, efficient, and the variety of food options was ideal for 6 of us! Thanks so much for a great experience!
Great food, service, atmosphere. We will definitely be going back!
A server was sweeping the carpet with a broom near our table raiding dust. When asked to stop he became very abusive verbally. I asked to speak to the manager, but he never came. A member of our party said, "i will never return to this restaurant."
Great hamburgs! Thanks for the special. We are at Houlihans once a week! Love it! Neighborhood gathering. Always see so many friends in there!
Overall the food was very good, the service was excellent and everyone in our party of eight seemed to enjoy themselves.
First time costumers. We came here for date night. I had a reservation, but still waited about 10 minutes for a table. The table was right by the door, so anytime the door opened a gust of freezing cold wind came in. The waitress was wonderful! No complaints about her. My drink was pretty strong. Ordered strawberry basil lemonade.. More alcohol than anything. We ordered soup as an appetizer, which was great. My boyfriend ordered a burger medium-well. When our meal came out his burger was very pink and bloody, also greasy. My food was good, but everything on the plate was cold.
We were extremely disappointed. Hoping it was just an off night. Might give it another chance sometime.
