    Sadly, we were very disappointed. My sister was here to visit and we took her and her husband to Houlihan’s for lunch. None of our meals were good. The food didn’t taste good, her chicken was tough, my fiancés rice was undercooked, and my wrap was bland. We wanted to like it and looked forward to going. We won’t be going back.

    The food was hot, delicious, and arrived in a timely fashion. Our wait person (Kailee I think) was a delight, cheerful, nice smile, attentive and respectful. She did miss giving me a refill on my soda but resolved it by offering me one to go. The only problem we had was reading the menu. The lighting was a bit dark, and the menu was, in some places, text was very small. Also the website did not reflect what was on the menu in the restaurant, two items were not available. I understand it was a holiday so those things might change on normal operating days.

    We felt the food for what we paid was very good. The service was very slow. Possibly due to staff shortages at the time we were eating. Our server wasn't very attentive and never asked if we liked the food.

    Food was Luke warm. Some of sides were actually cold. Had reservation for 6:15 and they put us in bar area when dining room was relatively empty. One bartender was the waitress for the entire bar area. Overall the food and service has declined dramatically at this location.

    The server did not put the Veteran's Day discount on the bill, even though we had told her that my husband was a veteran. She also never came to our table to ask how our food was. The roasted tomato soup was delicious!

    Overall the food was good but the chicken tenders were overcooked and stringy. The Sedona pasta was fantastic. The apps were great, but the Mac and Cheese was just ok. The service was fantastic, the prices and selection are good as well. The restaurant is lovely.

    Restaurant was out of green beans— the menu listed side dish— they offered other sides like Mac and cheese, fries and other high fat and greasy food. Asked about a small salad and the waitress didn’t think it could be done. Result is a unhappy customer.

    It is hard to really rate this experience as several of the meals were excellent, but the pasta meals both had to be sent back as they were delivered tepid at best. the waitress was very attentive and apologized for things that weren't her fault. it was not busy but we waited a long time for our food. Again, may have been more to do with lack of staff. would go again but would not order a meal with Alfredo noodles as they did not have a sauce, just butter and grated cheese.

    Good food and reasonable prices. Unfortunately, my dinner came lukewarm. My server took it back and reheated it but didn't give me new utensils and walked away before I could ask. Not much atmosphere but it is quiet. The low light made it hard to read the menu.

    30 minutes after ordering, our waitress told us they did not have 2 of the 4 entrees and we would have to choose something else. Another 30 mins passed and the fries that came with our sandwiches were cold. They made it right when I requested two new orders that were fresh and hot. The manager never once came to our table. We saw him near the exit as we were leaving, but he never spoke a word, not even have a good night. After we left, my husband noticed I had mashed potatoes all over the lower back side of both of my legs. I had to request before being seated to have the booth cleaned because of the spilled milk. Disappointing.
