    This was the first time we were disappointed. We ordered the meat loaf and it was barely warm and was dried out. The children's meal fries were cold. Just disappointed this time.

    Always a good meal - I enjoyed the Yum Yum burger which was yummy. The service was slow which was an issue due to having scheduled plans afterwards . The staff was friendly and did apologize for the wait.

    Great as always. Service was wonderful and food was superb. Got a reservation and sailed right in. Others waited 1-1.5hr at that time. Never had a bad experience here. Perfect for date nights or family dinners.

    My husband and I were out prior to seeing a show at the Hershey Theatre. I had a burger and he had the Brentwood chicken sandwich. Both sandwiches were tasty but A little dry. Was disappointed in the side dish of string beans with garlic. Over cooked and a very small portion of approximately 10 string beings. Dessert was the chocolate brownie with ice cream, which was very moist and chocolatey.

    Made reservations for 6PM TWO WEEKS IN ADVANCE of a Thursday dinner. Arrived early, before 6PM. Waited 40 minutes for a table, and only got seated after a reminder to hostess at 6:15, followed by a complaint at 6:25. Needed to be at Hershey Theatre for show at 7:30. Once seated, we ordered immediately, had to pick entrees that could be prepared very quickly, and had to eat quickly to make the show. Waitress was superb, and helped as much as she could. Wish I had her name, but she was wonderful. Only part of the whole dining experience that was pleasant.

    This was our first time at Houlihan's, and when we saw the menu, we thought this wasn't going to be good. The menu had a rather small selection from what we're used to. But wow, were we surprised. The food and the cocktails were fantastic. We went from one and done, to definitely going back!

    We were seated behind the "wine wall" that blocked out sounds from the bar and larger dining room. This was perfect for us. Tannyn was the best server, absolutely delightful _ great personality and sense of humor. Looks like Houlihan's is a very well-run operation, from reservations & seating, through orders and serving, to busing and sanitizing. This customer was very impressed.

    This may seem minor, but the green beans were perfect. One of my pet peeves is undercooked green beans, so I appreciated these as they were tender and flavorful; neither under- nor over-done. Salmon and mashed potatoes were also excellent. Service (Tarlynn - sp?) was also extremely pleasant and attentive.

    Restaurant has definitely gone down hill the last couple of years. The server was good for the most part but disappeared for an extended time period a few times. The main entrees were cold. We got Creme Brule for dessert and you could tell it was old. I don't think I would go back.

    I made reservations but was seated at a high top in the bar area, which I don't mind. The problem was the bartender waited on our table and a few others and was by himself. He was overwhelmed and was not attentive, but was polite.

    No extra goodies on our plates ie corn fritters. No bread was served with our meal. Water only served if you ask. For the price 34.00 a plate for a filet some little extras would be nice. Steaks good, big potato, good green beans.

    It's so much better now that we can make reservations instead of having to get there 'way before we want to eat with snacks in my purse to tide us over like we used to (my elderly mother is diabetic so timing matters). The hostesses were friendly and seated us right away. Chris, our waiter, was great. Our food order was accurate and the food tasted good. The only thing we would like is for Houlihan's to bring back the smaller order of 'shrooms. The large order is too much for us.

    Have reservations, which we did. We were sat in a decent booth. The drinks were delicious. We shared an appetizer (calamari) and added Cesar salads to our entrees. The special entree creole chicken was good, bit spicy though. My husband had a steak, however he was not impressed by it. It lacked flavor. He did not care for the mashed potatoes that came with the entree either. Noise level was medium, it’s hard when it’s the evening time and families are meeting up together after the holidays. We are going to be taking a break from eating here due to the food being less than desired for.

    The service was great but the quality of the steaks were terrible. It seems food is not as good as it was. The last time we visited the filled chicken Breast was cold inside. We both got the sirloin steaks no taste and not cooked very good!

    My husband said maybe they were having an off night and we need to try them again. Service was ok. Food took an hour to come out. We ordered calamari for an appetizer and mixed in we’re chicken finger not cooked all the way through. We told the waitress she took it, said she told the kitchen. Never came back with another one nor taken off the bill. Chicken fingers very chewy and the chicken Alfredo didn’t have much flavor. The burger was very good. The waitress was very attentive asked if we wanted refills and would walk by our table at least 3 times before returning with our refills. Maybe they were short handed and they were busy. We will try them again hopefully the next review will be better.
