We ate here twice as we were staying at the Holiday Inn. Not quite sure how to rate it. We arrived a bit early for check-in so opted for lunch before hitting a couple wineries. The lunch was quite good. I had the French dip with black beans and rice and the wife had a burger and fries. The French... More

Our waitress, Courtney, was very friendly!! Only one little problem, calamari was fried too hard; however, the Key Lime Pie Martini was great!!!

Don't be fooled that it's connected to a hotel. Houlihans makes fresh meals. They are all very good. Haven't had a bad dish. Been staying at hotel for a while and Houlihans is the restaurant of choice for a great meal. Lots of options.

Selected Houlihan's for dinner because it was in the hotel and after a long day of vineyard hopping we were too tired to make our reservations in town. We were starving so anything would have tasted good. The staff were excellent. Pleasant and attentive. The food arrived quickly even though they had a full house. And, maybe I shouldn't say... More

I go there at least once a week. Fast courteous service, the servers know you and remember your likes and dislikes. I love their salmon it is to die for! We have had several Christmas parties there and they were great.

Houlihan's is our go-to restaurant. Everything on the menu is excellent - we've never been disappointed. For a change, try the scallops with risotto, or the chicken tortilla soup with a chopped salad. Can't make up your mind on which dessert to have? Get the triple sampler! WARNING: You'll have to share it - it's huge (and yummy).

This part sports bar, part restaurant is attached to the Holiday Inn. It is a chain but is really a cut above most. It is richly appointed and very comfortable. We chose a booth in the bar. The place was busy on an early Sunday evening but service was brisk and friendly. We found the drinks generous and the menu... More

Stopped while traveling for late lunch at 2:00. Only a couple other diners in the place so wait staff was cleaning and replenishing. Service was very fast and food came out hot and fresh. Our drinks were replenished without prompting. I ate off the "nooner" menu of lunch combo specials: half French dip with a cup of potato soup. Ample... More

It's a nice restaurant and bar. But the staff needs much work and management seems clueless. I've stayed at the Holiday Inn and Suites here several times and have eaten here a few times.
