Diner Reviews
  • "Our drinks were lukewarm, the service was poor & we were mostly ignored. We will not return."
    Dined on 3/16/2014
  • "I love the spaghettini with the shrimps,mussels and scallops except the scallops was bland. Plus the lettuce wraps chicken was a little salty but otherwise the food is good."

  • "I am afraid that is the only word I can think of. The usher tried to sit me at the bar even though it was obvious there was no room and then having given my order I waited 35 minutes for my dinner to arrive. However my soup never did and the waitress seemed completely clueless on what to do. The food was at least cooked reasonably."

  • "We generally enjoy Houlihan's, but our experience Wednesday not left much to be desired. My wife order lettuce wraps and a bowl of soup. I ordered a club sandwich with fries. It took at least 20 minutes before any food was delivered and then it was just the lettuce wraps. A few minutes later the soup was delivered (i really doubt they cook each bowl individually, so that was ridiculous). About 5 minutes after that, my sandwich was delivered. The wraps, the soup, and my sandwich were all good as usual, but my fries tasted like they had sat under a heat lamp since we placed our order (that's about 30 minutes if you lost count). If we have another experience there like this one, it will be the last.Too many good places around."

  • "This was a surprise! We had dinner at Houlihan's and loved the food. Their chicken wings are excellent and their steak was cooked well. The atmosphere was great, had a few couples having dinner and a few other people near the bar for drinks. We positioned ourselves away from the big LCD screens that had sports on so we can have a nice dinner without the distractions. I was pleasantly surprised. Recommended!"

  • "I really like going to this restaurant inside the Holiday Inn. The food is delicious and the waitstaff is always friendly and efficient. The only issue I had (and this is just personal preference) the dessert menu is really small with very few options."

  • "The hostess & waitress were very patient & helpful. Food was more than I expected "very Good"."

  • "We had a great meal here. Especially awesome was the French Onion Soup and the apple pie. Only complaint is that the music was obnoxiously loud."

  • "Great place to have dinner the night before a flight and then stay at the hotel."

  • "Great spot for eating while attending a conference at the conference center next door. A good spot if you live in the area and when time permits prior to taking a flight from SFO. Good food and good energy."

  • "Enjoyed every starter we had...from the spinach and lovsh, the chicken wings, and the big bite rshooms. Then the main dish...scalloped risotto (yummy), enjoyed every bite. Will be back for other entrees on the menu!!!"

  • "I was there with a friend for lunch on Wednesday, 4/18/12. Nice entrance and interior but it's quite empty at 12:30pm. Food was OK but not impressive. I think I expected more."

  • "Place was pretty empty. I could see why after my party of 10 ordered and ate. Only two dishes out of ten (two of the same was ordered) orders were good. I would not recommend eating there. Drinks from bar were just ok. Have no plans to give it a second try..."
    Dined on 12/26/2011
  • "Food and service very good, as always. Forgot there would be a big football game on, so it was noisier than usual at the bar, but we were given a booth on the side that minimized the noise. It was much appreciated! Will be back, love the bruschetta and Southwestern wrap!"
    Dined on 12/4/2011
  • "This is essentially a sports bar with an attached dining area, which also has a large-screen TV showing sports. If that's your thing, this is it. If not, you may not want to go during games. The food, however, was very good, and the wait staff excellent."
    Dined on 11/24/2011
  • "Houlihan's is a better than average chain that caters to a wide variety of tastes. Given the dearth of decent options within walking distance, we found Houlihan's to be a welcome option an elevator ride away."
    Dined on 9/20/2011
  • "Our waiters were very attentive and nice! They took care of our big group. Quite a few of us got the Pot Roast and it was delicious. The Wild Mushroom Enchilades were not a hit. It was served cold. Overall, we would come back and have another luncheon."
    Dined on 7/27/2011
  • "Very conveniently located off Hwy 101. Great appetizers, awesome cocktails, and the only place I know of that serves blueberry lemonade."

  • "We were dining @ an odd hour of the day on Christmas. I had been to Houlihan's before for drinks and appetizers. t was disappointing for dinner. It was freezing in there. The hot3el loby doors kept opening and I felth the restaurant could've turned on heat. The restaurant wasn't crowded but it took so long for our foo to arive. We were watching a basketball game, then th bartender changed the channel to match all other channels, then turned loud music on right over our table. They were understaffed once it picked up and the srvice got even worse. The appetizers were tasty however the entrees were like-warm and underseasoned. i had a xhixhen torilla soup that hdidn't have a single piece of chicken in it. I wanted dessert but it took too long"

  • "Have been several times and have always enjoyed Menu changes a bit btwn my visits - I think gets better each time FOOD: 4 -only gripe- Dish was quite a bit spicier than I like or have ever had w/this dish: Rare Ahi Tuna Tacos--FAB! The pieces of Ahi were very sizable which I rarely find w/Ahi in a salad or tacos as smaller chunks are often tossed in if Ahi isn't "headlining" the plate. Kudos! As well, "Rare Ahi Tuna" was prepared perfectly! RARE! Restaurants advise "rare", but it arrives not rare,,, SERVICE: 2 - service quite slow. Had reservations yet sat 10' b4 even asked if wanted water/wine. Lrg party in the back- not enough Waitstaff in Main"

  • "Great place to eat in a pinch! I had a friend from out of town call me at the last minute. I suggested we meet at Houlihan's, seeing that she was at the SFO airport. It was great. Didn't have to sacrifice a great meal for convenience."
    Dined on 10/18/2010
  • "Holidays is an average place, nothing more and nothing memorable."
    Dined on 10/8/2010
  • "The bartender was pretty chintzy with the liquor. The Pot Roast was very tasty. My parents felt their prime rib was a little tough. The steak was good though slightly overcooked. I will give this restaurant another try. Hope the bartender will be more generous with the liquor as I do rate restaurants by their liquor also."
    Dined on 7/18/2010
  • "Service was excellent, but food was mediocre. Lots of noise and had to be moved...we were right next to the bar. Probably great for younger crowds or singles."
    Dined on 3/26/2010
  • "The chinese chicken lettuce wrap appertizer was very swee, way too sweet and kill my appetite. The mustard crusted salmon was dried. the sauce was too salty. Overall, the food was disappointing."

  • "I've always had good food at Houlihan's. The service is typically fine however was a bit slow this last time."

  • "Hoolihan's was a pleasant suprise at the Holiday Inn. I wasn't expecting such a nice sportsbar. We watched the Superbowl there since I had to pick up my son on Superbowl Sunday at the San Francisco airport that afternoon. So I stayed at the Holiday inn and waited for him at Houlihans. The bartender and waitresses took very good care of me since I was waiting alone. They made it fun and most of the food was outstanding. I ate breakfast there and it wass very good. Then at superbow time we had the stuffed mushrooms which may be the best I have ever had along with some other bar food. Everything was good. The bar is open til midnight food served til 10. And the Happy ours prices were great."

  • "Odd to find some good food in a place located in a hotel. The food is always okay and dependable. Try the chicken nachos, you'll get a alot. Lots of drink choices, 1/2 of the menu is dedicated to drinks."
    Dined on 10/27/2009
  • "I was pleasantly surprised. I needed a restaurant that was near the airport and open at 4 pm and it was the only one open at 4 pm. But it turned out to be better than my usual selections and from now on I will hold my airport dinner meetings there!"
    Dined on 10/9/2009
  • "I made the reservation because I was at a large conference next door. When I got ther on time they gave away my table and then when we finally go a table it took 1 hour to get our food. A very disorganized experience however the food was very good!"
    Dined on 9/15/2009
  • "We went to Houlihan's because it was the only Opentable restaurant around South San Francisco open for breakfast. It's slim pickings (Denny's, Ihop, Lyon's) in the neighborhood, so unless we're stranded, I doubt we'll go back. Our server was sweet though."

  • "Being open late and convenient to SFO, this place was a good find ... add the variety on the menu, the quality of both food and service and it became a great find ... we were there late on a weeknight, so it was very uncrowded, but we felt it would be a very good spot at any time of day."
