    Not enough staff. Service was very slow. Waitress was very nice and worked hard, but she did not have enough help. Restaurant not even crowded and food was very slow to come out. Food was very average. I could only eat three bites of one of their staple dishes.

    We went to Houlihan’s for a St Patrick Day lunch on Sunday. Made a reservation as I assumed it would be crowded. It was not. We were seated in the bar area by ourselves. Service was excellent, food was average. Biggest disappointment were the drinks. Guinness was brought in a bottle which certainly made for a poor pour. Our Irish Slammers were not as good with the bottled pour as well. Oh well, as I said service was excellent!

    Houlihan's is GREAT !! we've eaten at different ones that were in Indianapolis, Indiana and in Cleveland, Ohio years back when they were open and have been coming to this location for years as well. The food is really good, we've tried different things on their menu and have NEVER had any complaints. I also call to get carryout and the food and wait time is ALWAYS on point.

    It was freezing in the restaurant. Many people wearing coats and it wasn’t that cold outside. There was a lamp in a booth across from us that was so bright it was very annoying. We asked for the Buckeye game to be turned on but they said they were too busy. They usually serve some nice rolls with their pasta dishes but they didn’t have any tonight.

My only complaint was my steak was over cooked - but other than that, all the food was great! Again, will definitely be returning many times for the prices and quality of the food!

    We had dinner here about a yr ago and decided to try it tonight for Valentines Day! We both ordered the meatloaf with Mashed potatoes , gravy and green beans. We are not picky but this meal was terrible. Meatloaf was like, in a frozen dinner and the entire meal very salty. We left the majority of our meals Very disappointed as we have always had good food in the past . The dessert was delicious .

    We love going here but the food wasn’t good in all aspects. My stuffed chicken breast was great but the Mac and cheese side was mushy and there was little flavor. The chocolate desserts were grainy and not pleasant. The fish was good but the French fries were undercooked and cold. I can’t complain about the greeter or our server. They were fabulous. I apologize but I don’t remember the servers name but she was an attractive girl with red hair in a pony tail. She was very attentive.

    I ordered the char crusted ahi tuna starter, which was fine. I ordered the meatloaf, and it was awful. It looks like someone fried the meatloaf to get it hot. This was combined with a small dollop of mashed potatoes and green beans which were undercooked. I will never order this mean again. I ordered donuts for dessert, and they never came. The waitress said the kitchen was "busy." The restaurant was half full. ' Luckily my wife had the Georges Bay Scallops which were good. But overall, it was a disappointing meal, and we will not be back soon.

    Both of us had the Huge Panko Shrimp, as it was on sale for $12.99. The only bad news was they could not figure out how to run our Visa gift card because it was a debit card version. Claimed their credit card machine was too old??? Otherwise the food was good and the price was right.

    We had a fabulous dinner. Our waitperson - Michelle - was wonderful. Pace of meal was pretty good. I tried their seasonal special - Butternut Squash & Sausage Pasta - delicious - different from anything I have had and not like my usual chicken or steak so it was a stretch for me. It was awesome - would definitely order again.

    Highly Disappointed…. My sister, niece and I ordered our food all at once. However, all our food came out at separate times. One of us was eating while the other two sat and watched. We actually didn’t even get to enjoy our meal together. Not only did we not get to eat together but there was 20+ mins wait time between each of our meals. There reason was “we got a lot of big tickets at once” but the restaurant was not even half way full.. The two pasta dishes that we ordered, the pasta was clumpy-the noodles stuck together-or the noodles were under cooked. My niece’s fruit cup consisted of 3 black berries, a 1/4 of a strawberry and 4 blueberries… definitely a disappointment. We use to love Houlihans but the service (not our server) and food has definitely gone down… We don’t be returning…
