Houlihan's is a Leawood, Kansas-based American casual restaurant & bar with locations operating throughout the country, 60% of which are franchised. The first Houlihan's opened on April 1, 1972 on Kansas City's Country Club Plaza, and there are now 82 restaurants in 18 states[1]. It was originally named Houlihan's Old Place, because it was first located in the space of Houlihans Clothing Store.

Houlihan's is privately owned by Houlihan's Restaurants, Inc., a progressive company that developed and owns several restaurant concepts including Bristol Seafood Grill[1], Devon Seafood Grill[2] and J. Gilbert's Wood-Fired Steaks[3].

Menu offerings range from wood grilled center-cut steaks to flatbread pizzas, and include both contemporary American and ethnic-inspired fare.[4]. The Houlihan's test kitchen located in the headquarters office tests and develops menu options that address diverse lifestyles. Houlihan's kitchens are run from scratch.

In the bar, interesting cocktails and wine along with small bites have landed many local 'Best of' happy hour awards.

Houlihan's serves lunch and dinner, and offers brunch in select locations.
