Scallops were wonderful. The house salad was uninspired--too much cheese, bacon, croutons--not enough interesting greens.

Stuff off us went to celebrate my birthday. I has signed up for their club and receive a birthday coupon for $15 off. Told the waiter at start of meal. Gave the coupon to him at the end of the meal. He took it but came back and said he couldn't take it because I bought from their special "Restaurant Week" menu. Nothing on the coupon says it can't be used for that and the waiter hasn't been told that advance. Two of us each got the $29 special dinner to celebrate, which is at least $10 more per person than we would have spent if we ordered off their regular menu, and they wouldn't honor their coupon. OUTRAGEOUS! They're solution was to handwrite on the printed copy of the coupon "to be used at a later date." So in order to use the $15 off birthday coupon, were out the cost of an expensive meal tonight and I would have to go back and try again. That's certainly a win for them. Pretty sure I'll meet be cashing that in. The general manager never even came to talk to me himself--just relayed messages through the other staff. You really know how to make a birthday girl feel special!

Love the food. The ahi tuna appetizer was super delicious. Will definitely come back again. Great service, clean and spacious seating area. Little bit pricy though, but worth the money.

Ethan was a great waiter, one of the best we have seen. I highly recommend him and this establishment.

Had a wonderful evening in a quiet alcove with a group of 8. Food was delicious and quite reasonable. We made a reservation for next month as we left.

Dined out while on a weekend getaway. Had a gift certificate we needed to use before it expired. We both had the filet and it was excellent.

Food was excellent with the exception of the "Holy Grail of Bacon" which was just chunks of pig fat. I was so disappointed with the appetizer that I wanted to send it back but I didn't. Rest of the meal was good. Their service has never been very good in the 3 years I've been going there and this was no exception...just no attention to detail and even had one of those "did they go on break?" moments. If they can get the service under control this would be a great place.

We went to Houlihan's for my birthday. One of the things I was surprised that they don't give you any kind of bread before or during the meal. Our server was efficient but not very friendly. The food was very good but I was surprised that the server offer water at the end of our meal as opposed to the beginning of the meal, again she seemed seemed off. Would definitely try to it again because the food was good. Hopefully we will get another server who is a bit more pleasant and friendly.

We came because it is close to State Farm center. We had 1 hr and 15 min before our show. Our waiter took forever to come to our table and then ran away without without mentioning anything on the menu to get water. Was gone for another 15 min. By the time he came back we had to order drinks and food together and that took another 30 min just to get some salads. Food was comparable to Applebee’s or chilies. As soon as the food came out we had to get the check. Thought it would be better because the restaurant is fairly nice. The service was worse than the food but I doubt we’ll come back.

The food was outstanding. Deep fried asparagus with lemon horseradish, dinner salad with balsamic vinegarette, scallops, chicken all very good.

Wait staff was slow and inattentive. Some of our meals were served cold. Hamburger was under cooked.
