IMG_3744My family was invited to experience dinner at our local Houlihan’s. I love when blogging opportunities take me to new places so close to home (because prior to this opportunity, I had never heard of Houlihan’s).

My boys thought it would be fun to create a top ten list… so here are the top ten things we liked about Houlihan’s:

10. Fancy but casual. If you eat at fancy restaurants, Houlihan’s may not be fancy for you. But if you’re used to casual dining with your little ones, the atmosphere is much better than your typical family restaurant.

9. The lighting. We loved the cozy dim lights.

8.  New lighter fare menu options. Each item on this limited time special menu is less than 590 calories.


7. The french onion soup.

6. Our waiters. They went above and beyond with their friendliness and service.

5. The salads.

4. Activities to entertain the kids.

3. Fish Tacos

2. Being together as a family.

1. And the best thing about Houlihan’s (according to my boys) was the chicken!
