We had a reservation set for Valentines Day for 2, the had a paper list to go off of but our names was on their electronic tablet. They didn't have a table for us ready so they had us sit on a high table in the bar area. The host was very nice and considerate for their mistake while the hostess had a very rude attitude about the situation asking roughly if we even had reservations to begin with, when we clearly did since we were in their system. Food was good and the waitress was nice. Although the food did take a while to come out and it wasn't overflowing.

Server was friendly, my salad was forgotten so got it after my meal. Got the Salmon entree and it was overcooked, very dry.

The food was very good, better than what you would expect at a chain. The service was somewhere between good and very good. My only complaint would be that the music was a bit on the loud side.

Alyssa is a great server . Patient , made great recommendations and just cares . Great to see such a nice attitude . We had the wings with the mango hot sauce and the mozzarella sticks . Sizzling fajitas and cheeseburger were terrific . This desert we took a picture of was like an apple pie w ice cream but I can’t remember the name . Really good though and Alyssa recommended it :)

New Year’s Eve, and there was way too many people there. We had a reservation so we didn’t wait to be seated. There were at least 15 people waiting for a table. Normally, Houlihan’s does an OK job. Tonight… Our food came out Ice cold. Steaks. $29 steaks. We put dinner in to go container and got out of there. It was so much chaos, we didn’t even stick around to call a manager over.

We've been to Houlihan's a number of times. The food served on Christmas Day was not as good as we've had on previous visits. Served luke warm. Watery mashed potatoes. Vegetables burned.

One person in our party had to wait for a long time before she got her meal - everyone else was finished eating their food - I felt awful about this. I know it was busy but we never was offered an apology or a discount on her meal. Very disappointing.

We wanted to have a non-traditional Thanksgiving dinner and Houlihan's had an available spot. I had a strip steak that was cooked perfectly and my wife had their chicken with the lemon/asparagus risotto - both were quite tasty. Our waiter Jeremiah was very good.

Excellent service, great food at a very reasonable price. We ordered the filet mignon, it was perfect. For dessert, we had creme brûlée and a crumbly moist cake which was very good.

I used to go to Houlihans for holiday meals and get togethers. I thought their food was very good, but after this past visit, I think the quality has diminished. The house burger I had was charred to blackness. It was flavorless and gritty. The Shrooms, Firecracker shrimp and avacado toast were all really nice and tasty. The Impossible burger my son had was surprisingly juicy, tasty and delicious. I feel the quality of all the food has gone down. Also, my husbands favorite salmon dish, the coriander grilled salmon, was gone from the menu. He really missed it.
I’d like to see more seasonal oriented main dishes, such as winter root veggies, pot pie, and more fish dishes.

We were put in the back right near the kitchen - very loud. Could have asked to move, but other parts of the dining room are quite dark. Service was good and food was what we expect, good.

The service was very poor. The waitress Melodie, seemed as if she'd rather be somewhere else
& it showed throughout her service the entire night. She wasnt courteous at all, was very nonchalant & slow. The food was running neck & neck with the service. Chicken tenders overcooked & barely warm.
We've been here many times before & never encountered these issues, however we will definitely take a little break after this experience.

Food was wonderful,cooked as ordered. We sat in the bar and surprising noise at 6:30pm was not bad! Our servers were friendly,drinks came promptly & food great. We were not rushed. Met the GM. Worked the tables making sure things moving and people happy. Overall food & service super, however the interior could use a facelift. Too dark, a little color would help. Have been coming here a long time. Looks tired. Station by front booth and larger room is very distracting as sometimes servers congregate there. Love the place, just needs 21st century look! Thank you

Love houlihans! Frequent often. Lea is absolutely the best server ever!! She has been serving us since shortly after she started at houlihans. So sorry to see her go! There are very few that care as much about her customers as Lea!! She has been the reason that we always choose houlihans.

We like Houlihan's, food is always good! I love the avocado toast and potato skins appetizers. I had fish & chips (yummy!), my husband had a steak and my son had a kid's cheeseburger. Steaks are great and they know how to cook them (we like them rare and some restaurants overcook the meat). My son gave his cheeseburger "10 thumbs up". We used opentable to make a reservation, which helped immensely, we just walked right past the crowd waiting.
