Diner Reviews
  • "Across the parking lots from the Fighting Illini stadiums, Houlihan's is a good choice when there aren't crowds to contend with. Our food did not come out hot from the kitchen, but was otherwise very good."

  • "Went with a small group, including a job applicant from out of town, to close out a day of interviews. Nice place to drink, eat and talk casually. Great drink selection and lots of food choices. Food and drinks were good. Also got to watch a hockey game. Recommended for a casual night out with friends."

  • "This gem was selected because of its proximity to the Assembly Hall. The food was great with a good selection. Excellent service. A great place before a game or show!"

  • "When we arrive although we had reservations our table was not ready. The hostess that serviced us had a bad attitude. There were not enough place settings at the table. Several of our drinks had unknown particles floating in them as if the glasses had not been washed properly."

  • "Location is great for U of I and it was understandably packed before a game. We understood the wait for food but all food was delivered only slightly warm and in fact parts were cool."

  • "My wife and I and her parents have eaten here many times, and have usually been very happy with the experience. Our most recent experience, however, was not that good. My wife's entree was surprisingly dissimilar to previous versions of this entree. The "panko-crusted fried shrimp" were literally ⅓ the size of previous iterations. The Tuscan bean salad was a mere shadow of its former self, with uninteresting greens and soaked with oil.The grilled salmon BLT, whose menu description was meticulous in describing the adornments, arrived with shaved red onions, something I definitely had checked the menu for and did not want. The whole experience was peculiar. I'll chalk this one up to a bad night in the kitchen unless it happens again."

  • "The food overall was great, the macaroni was a bit disappointing but everything else I ordered was amazing. The service was quick and perfect and I've already recommended this place to people!"

  • "I made reservations via Open Table for Houlihan's about 1 week in advance. When arriving to Houlihan's, my party arrived at the time of our reservation. However, the staff seemed very unorganized. I checked in with the hostess and they said we'd be seated shortly. Abour 25 minutes later, after everyone else waiting without reservations had been seated, we were informed they were cleaning our table now. When we asked the hostess why there was a 25 minute delay from when our reservation was initially, they just said "sorry, it's a really busy night.". I feel like that was an awful excuse for why I was not seated at the proper time. Additionally, the restaurant staff did absolutely nothing to compensate for the late service."
