Virginia Green

Houlihan's Restaurant + Bar
Front Royal, VA


Virginia Green is the Commonwealth of Virginia’s campaign to promote environmentally-friendly practices in all aspects of Virginia’s tourism industry. Virginia Green has established "core activities" specific to each sector of tourism, and these practices are considered the required minimum for participation in the program. However, Virginia Green encourages its participants to reduce their environmental impacts in all aspects of their operations, and this profile provides a full list of all their “green” activities. These are the activities that guests / customers can expect to find when they visit this facility.

Houlihan's Restaurant + Bar

Our scratch cooking is what truly separates us from the pack. While most casual restaurants use microwaves and pre-assembled or pre-cooked ingredients, everything on our menu is made the hard way - from scratch. From appetizers and salads to entrées and desserts, it's all prepared here daily. With love.

We went green because it’s a “smart idea”.
