We had a large party-17 people, they did a wonderful job setting up, taking our orders for food and drinks! Very nice waiter ( don’t remember his name, sorry) He did an excellent job.

Loved how clean and quiet it was. Made a reservation, early afternoon on Sunday. The table was ready when we arrived. They didn't acknowledge that it was a birthday celebration, even though I specified this in the instructions. Not a big deal, but it would be nice to the birthday person if they at least brought a piece of cake with a candle.
Food was just ok. But this depends on what you like.
Coffee was cold. Cocktails were delicious!
They had pizza on the kids menu but no longer serve pizza.

I feel like in today's world, it's hard for restaurants to be on top again as they don't have enough staff and it reflects in the quality of food and service. If you like this place, that's awesome, continue supporting them! If you haven't been there, go! Im sure there is something on the menu just for you.

Thanks to our server, Kyle and Manager, Jennifer for fixing my girlfriend's Brentwood Chicken sandwich just the way she likes it (no rosemary seasoning) and bringing us super hot fries. We'll be back.

Overall - an enjoyable experience, given it was Mother's Day. A few things that might have made it better - open the blinds!! There's a water view but the shades are closed making the dining room rather dark. Space out the guests. Given the pandemic, I wouldn't have expected to have everyone sitting in the same area. Yes, there were barriers between the booths, but it certainly raised an eyebrow and made it rather noisy in that area of the restaurant. But, the service was good, the food was tasty and value was acceptable.

Our waiter was really nice but he had only been on the job for 4 days. He really tried hard but he needs more training. My problem was the dessert. I think the choices were not sufficient. I ordered the Mother’s Day special and the choices were poor. Made my meal end not on a good note.

It is very evident in today's environment that places like this struggle to get people to work. The staff that waited on us was awesome. But all the food was subpar. We had an artichoke and spinach dip that was like a soup and was sour tasting. The server to great care of us took it back no questions asked. The burgers we had both repeated on us all night and into the next morning. Hopefully things turn around for places like this.

My mother ordered the filet mignon and it smelled and tasted spoiled. The waitress was very good about replacing it. The meatloaf was ok. The korean fried bbq chicken was very salty. Overall the food quality wasn’t what we had expected. We still left the waitress a very good tip.

The food is always excellent, however, we had a reservation but there were no time limits on the tables. People were waiting over an hour for a table. Other than that, the food was excellent. The drinks were excellent. Out or waiter, Damien, was excellent. We do love Houlihans. I do hope they adjust not having a limit at the patio tables, as seating is limited and it's a pandemic. I understand wanting to be nice to your customers, but courtesy to ALL customers matter.

We have been to this restaurant several times now. The food is always excellent and the wait staff is pleasant and competent. Their special 3 course menu on Sunday is an extraordinary value. The front desk always seems surprised that we made a reservation on OpenTable. I wonder what that is all about; maybe most people don't ? In any event, we really like the place and will be back.

We were celebrating our 28th wedding anniversary and at last minute decided on dinner at Houlihan's. Great choice. The greeting staff were very cordial. Our waiter was exceptional!! We shared a cactus bowl drink and Kudos to the bartender! The pot stickers were mouth watering. We both had Korean chicken and were very happy with the sweet and hot combination of the dinner. Everything was served in a timely matter and with a smiling , very attentive waiter. The whole dining experience was wonderful. We look forward to returning.
