Great place! Overall the food is good but some of the dishes were very salty. I love salt, so for me to say that it was bad. I almost sent my French Dip back and my soup. The mushrooms were my favorite! Excellent drinks.

The only issue is if you are eating dinner during happy hour you have to go to bar to get the happy hour prices. If you are in the dining area during happy hour and order drinks you are charged a higher price

A tad disappointed that my scallop dinner only had 31/2 scallops and zero asparagus although it was promised on the menu. Then the waiter argued with me about said asparagus. Other than that all was good.

Very disappointed in our visit. While we arrived on time at 7pm for our reservation and were seated promptly, it was 7:10 before anyone appeared to take drink orders and then it was 7:25 when they were delivered. We were told that the bar was "backed up". We placed orders for appetizers and off she went. Appetizers were delivered in about 20 minutes by what appeared to be kitchen expediter. When we asked to place dinner order, he said, I'll send your server....and another wait. Finally placed dinner order. All four us also added salads to our entree order--and very specifically asked that the entrees not be delivered until we were through with the salads. Well.....first to arrive were three of the four salads and less than one minute later, the fourth salad and all four entrees arrived at the same time. Who in the hell in the restaurant business thinks it is appropriate to deliver the salad and entree at the same time????? Of course, by the time that we finished our salads and the entrees were returned after setting under a heat lamp...well you know how that story ends. Awful service, heat lamped baked food and 2 and a half hours wasted. Why should we ever return?

We hadn’t been in several months, & glad we came back! Our server, Katlyn B, was AMAZING!!! She had a constant smile & just seemed happy to be there. Even other parties leaving I overheard them tell Katlyn how great she was. She gave us appetizer recommendations, was prompt with drinks, checked in on us throughout our meal. Thanks again Katlyn!

I have always loved Houlihan's . My best friend and I go there frequently. However, this visit wasn't as pleasant as usual. The service was not as good. The owner was pleasant. Our server was absent most of the time, one manager was completely rude, all in all it wasn't the experience we were used to at this location. Some of the food was stale/old. It will be a while before I return.

I would definitely recommend Houlihan's. We had their $50 four-course Valentine's Dinner for two. Everything from the spinach dip to the salads to four-ounce filet, scallops, and gooey caramel butter cake were excellent. Service was outstanding.

Service was HORRIBLE. Took forever after placing our drink order to actually get a drink. It looked like our appetizer of pot stickers had a hard life, they were split open & a mess. After we ate, our waitress came by & said our food should be out soon...we had already eaten - that tells you how often she came by (non-existent). Then I had a 20% off coupon which she did not apply, but to try & fix that would have taken forever, so her tip suffered. Don’t think we’ll be back.

The selection of entrees, appetizers, and sandwiches always meets out tastes and requirements. Server Chelsea was excellent - attentive without being intrusive. She was very knowledgeable, personable, and helpful We sat with friends in the main dining room area. It is out of the lane of kitchen traffic. We enjoy this Houlihans over any other locations. The proprietor runs a great restaurant.

We enjoyed our time at Houlihans-Garland. The food was excellent except for the asparagus which needed to be trimed, the hard ends were left on the spears and were inedible. Also when asked if a food is spicy please answer correctly. I had the corn and there was definitely spiciness to it. I couldn't eat it. Overall all was good.
