    Sam is the first person that greets you when you enter the restaurant. He is friendly and welcoming. Sam has an exceptional work ethic. When he is not seating guests, he is busing and sanitizing tables. Our server Paulina is a simply outstanding. She is professional, welcoming and attentive. Our appetizer and entree were both prepared well. It is always an enjoyable experience when dining at Houlihan's.

    We had a decent meal at Houlihans. One drink order had to be changed because they were out of the required ingredient. Cole slaw was very spicy which we didn't expect. Fish and chips, salmon and steak were cooked well.

    Houlihans has changed its menu and it is very limited. I am trying to watch my calorie intake so I ordered the filet mignon. When it arrived it didn’t look great. It was stringy when I cut into it and it smelled bad. I thought it was the green beans so I took a bite. It was definitely bad. They replaced it with salmon, which was good, but the steak should have never been plated. They just need to close if they can’t afford to serve decent food.

    Houlihans Firewheel has been a great modern spot for the Garland area for a while. I remember frequenting Houlihans when it first opened and enjoyed the updated decor and variety of food and drinks on the menu at that time. Surprisingly this still holds up. Although the food and drinks options have changed slightly, I still enjoy the kind fast service and happy hour options. With that said. I took my family there for Fathers day 2022. Service great, Apps great, entrees were ok. I had the fathers day special of "half rack ribs". They were tasty, but there were only 4 ribs of this "half rack". that fell little short. Would have been nice to have 5-6 ribs. for the $25 or so. My Dad ordered the meatloaf and was excited. He eats anything and everything, but when we wrapped up and we were deciding on to go boxes, I looked over and he only took 2 bites of his meatloaf. I was quite surprised since he's usually the one to eat everything on the table. He said the meatloaf tasted sweet and it was very chewy. He said that he thought it was bad and/or overcooked. Luckily he was able to get he fill on the apps we ordered(shrooms, calamari, cauliflower). I wish my dad would had said something during dinner to get him a replacement. Everyone else enjoyed there entree's, burgers, filet, salads, etc. just the ribs and the meatloaf that day was oddly out of sorts.

    First let me say thanks very much for accommodating my guest for my Birthday celebration. However, I want to say I was very disappointed when I was first greeted by a Caucasian male. He was very short with me and not welcoming at all. Then I was greeted by the restaurant manager Carmen. Carmen was very pleasant but I was very disappointed in what I was told when I requested the front happy hour area near the door. Carmen informed me that another large party requested 1/2 of the area and that I could only have 15 of the seats. Yes my reservation was only for 10 but to tell me an untruth just to keep me from getting the full area was ridiculous and a flat out lie. I arrived at 4 pm and she informed me that the other group reserved the spot for 5 pm. As time went on, my guest squeezed in on the side I was told was mine and the other side remained empty. It wasn't until after 6:30 pm that guests were now being seated on the other side. Clearly the other party was NOT coming or better yet NEVER COMING. I feel that this was deliberate in not wanting to serve my African American party!!!!! Yes, Carmen did not tell the truth and if she did she could have come over later and allowed my guest to sit on the other side, which clearly was EMPTY. Thank GOD we had an African American male waiter who was EXCELLENT and who gave us TOP NOTCH service. I will NOT have another gathering at this restaurant because clearly our presence was NOT welcomed!

    The food was good for the price. I am giving them a break on this because it was Mothers Day and extremely busy. The spinach artichoke dip was lukewarm and runny. The wait staff was excellent though! As overworked as they were, they attended to us the best they could, were kind and had a great attitude!

    Food was pretty good! Ticket time was a little long. Just drinks took around 10-15 mins, as did dessert even thought most of the restaurant was empty by then. Tiny bit pricy but with today's economy it is expected. Waitress was very nice and friendly.

    My wife and I used to visit this location alot when it first opened and was impressed with the food and drinks then. Not much has changed, good food and drinks. Not sure if I should be giving away my secret, but book ahead using Opentable to avoid waiting. We booked a 7:15pm slot at 6:55pm on the way to dinner, this allowed us to jump ahead of 2 other groups that walked in the restaurant at the same time. I watched those 2 groups stand and wait for at least 15 mins as my wife and I were served drinks and ordered out food.
