We are very frequent customers yet people at the check in never seem to know us? We had reservations but the young female at the front decided to mark us as a no show on Open Table even though I gave her our name and reservation time 3 times!! We were seated as if we had reservations and it was very busy with a wait for those without reservations so I have no idea why she said we were a no show? Open Table said they verified with Houlihans- Fairway and all is ok, but it was a hassle responding to an email that we were down “as no shows!”

On the good side, the servers go know us each time and we had Kevin this time and he is great! They were busy so it was a bit crazy that night for all.

We love Houlihan's in Fairway! It’s our “go to” restaurant. Their summer menu has been outstanding and we really like getting emails about the specials,

Happy hour only applies to the bar area which is disappointing with the limited seating.

Waited a long time for our dinners, more than half an hour. My salmon was tasty but overcooked. My dining companion liked her scallops and ice cream. It was noisy. All table are raised booths, making it hard for elderly with a walker to access.

We eat at Houlihans regularly and tonight we had the best service we have had in a very long time. We sat in Kevin’s section and will request him in the future.

Good food. Our server DeeAnna was great. That horseradish based dip for the fries was awesome. My wife, however, was freezing and uncomfortable with the temp inside. Not sure if that can be helped. She did enjoy her meal.

Yes and no to recommend. I like so many things on the menu but this visit the French dip was inedible. I probably will return but will avoid that dish.

This Houlihan's location seems to vary a lot wit respect to service and quality. This experience was good; last experience was not... We returned based on a $15 coupon we received. We'd come back again, but will be interested to see if this spot can meet expectations over time under a new manager.

We had a very unusual experience in that our waiter totally disappeared. Even his supervisor couldn't find him I would hope that this was a one-time experience.

I brought in a birthday promo for $15. The rules had changed so that another meal had to be purchased to get the discount. Yes, it was written on the promo. the type was so small that it required magnifying. the person with whom I came had been able to do this In April. So we had to use cash and split the bill. We also noticed that portions were smaller.

It seemed expensive. We were unable to order cocktails from happy hour menu since we weren’t in bar area although it was 5 steps away. I used to think it was a great place now it’s just okay. I spent about 80 for three people. No booze! That’s high for a neighborhood bistro type restaurant. Shared app, fish tacos, chicken and a burger. Two teas. I may not be in a hurry to return although I like the location, so I won’t rule it out.

Everything good except ....one guest ordered steak wedge salad. Server came back apologizing they were out of that size steak. Would the guest pay more for the only size steak they had? Yes ...of course they did but I thought that was terrible business. Not her fault they were out. My observation was the steak was so small it couldn’t possible have been a few extra grams and it would have been gracious for the manager to cover the extra.
