Houlihans has always been a good "go to" place to eat. The food is good as well as the service. But like all businesses they have been impacted by Covid so it was a little less, on the whole, of what we're used to. I won't go into the details because this experience is not the good service we usually get. Only one thing REALLY bugged me and that was getting served my burger and fries without any ketchup. Has never happened before, but they seemed to be short staffed and mistakes are made, but how the heck can you serve a burger without ketchup??? Had to ask for it and it was promptly brought over. No big deal. Otherwise, the experience was fine.

Corned beef Reuben was absolutely DISGUSTING. Corned beef was thick and chewy and very skimpy. We will not be going back to Houlihans in the future. This was the 2nd time we had a DISGUSTING meal there. The last time we ordered salads and they looked as.if salads left from other patrons was put on plates and served to us

NOT AT ALL A FAN OF HOULIHANS!!!!!!!

Had a reservation for Valentine’s Day and found out upon arrival it was closed. No notification, call or email to alert of the closing. They closed at 3 and the reservation was for 7 pm. Very disappointed, would come here regularly.

This is the second time we were seated on the bar side and found that the service was not as good. The waitress/bartender is not around as much. We ended up asking the people who brought our appetizers and entrees for appetizer plates, condiments, refills since that seemed to be how we could get the items we needed.

Have been going here for years, always a good meal. Menu is now cut down , understandably due to pandemic, but am missing some of the things I usually order. Service was very slow despite there being very few occupied tables. Will prob hold off until things improve to go back.

Service was slow. 15 minutes to take a drink order; another 15 to get the drinks. 45 minutes to tell us there were no more baked potatoes. Food was relatively cold when it came out. The manager comped us one meal. No reason you shouldn’t have enough staff working when you are seating less people. Obviously not enough kitchen help or servers working.

We had Jeremiah as our server and he is amazing. He brought us drink refills before our drinks were even empty. He brought out condiments before we got our entrees (which is a plus since I don’t like to wait for condiments while my food is getting cold). Jeremiah’s attentiveness is a huge plus which enhanced our dining experience! The food was good too!

Previous visits were better than this time.
Food was just okay. They seem understaffed as
Bartender had to serve our table.
Not a big deal as we are regular patrons for years.

The food at Houlihans never disappoints. The wait staff is always friendly and attentive. I love how Houlihans supports different causes and a portion of your cocktail/ meal/ special goes to the cause. Keep up the great work!

Food and service were good. The salad came out at the same time as the entree. It took a while to get ketchup for our fries.

Went for lunch - menu was great even thru CoVid when everyone has a limited menu they still have a ton to choose. I ordered Ahi Tuna which was cooked perfectly and French onion soup. The soup was disappointing as it had zero onions in it. Was basically beef broth with a small price of mushy bread and covered with cheese. Our server was sweet but I think she was forgetful. We had to get our own silverware and napkin there was no water offered or brought out. Not sure if this was due to CoVid or not. Overall Houlihan’s is a pretty good place

They are understaffed and unable to keep up with the limited customers they have. We waited well over an hour for our food. We were a party of 5 with a child. They gave priority to their delivery orders and did nothing to let us know about it up front.

The waitress was surly and difficult. She got the order wrong and refused to acknowledge her mistake. The salmon was dry and burned as well. The menu is limited, and there were very few diners in the restaurant, so I'm not sure why they couldn't get it right. My dining companion remembered that this waitress had acted this way before and that our food was overcooked as well. Seems Houlihan's doesn't really care about their customers any more.

Not as good as usual. Service was slow even though they didn’t seem that busy. Two out of three dinners were fine. But I ordered fish and chips. They came out soggy and not good, probably because they sat under warmer for too long. We had waited awhile for our dinners to come out. When I said something to server all she said was sorry. In the past if something wasn’t right, a manager would always come over to talk about it. I was disappointed this visit.

We made a reservation but still had to wait 15 minutes. Our appetizer (Buffalo wings) came out cold. Our waitress disappeared and did not check on us after our entrees came out. We needed more ketchup and tartar sauce but had to finish our meals without the ketchup and tartar sauce.
