    The food is always very good, and the service is always exceptional, especially our server Alex, who took very very good care of us, without “overdoing it“ really enjoy being a part of the club, and enjoying the discounts and eager to come back again very very soon :-)

    The menu is disappointing and not nearly as good as it once was. The steak was overcooked and dry. Service was ok but had to find our own utensils and asked several times for condiments. No reason to ever go back.

    There was a 20% off special. So they were very busy. But the food was excellent. I had the 8 oz filet which was cooked perfectly and hubby had his usual soups and chicken strips. Definitely a good value.

    Unfortunately, it was not our best experience here. It was super busy and food took a very long time and then wasn’t the best. We will try again because it’s usually better.

    Food was good. Although we had a table of basketball kids beside us who were screaming and yelling the entire time. Throwing stuff. They left a huge mess to clean up. Kinda ruined the experience.

    Me and my family come to this restaurant every time are in Hershey. And every time we leave, we are completely overjoyed by the delicious food that we had just received and the reasonable prices we paid. I would recommend this restaurant to anyone and would also strongly recommend making a reservation as it fills up pretty quick!

    The mushrooms where good. Had the Brentwood chicken sandwich. The chicken was tough only ate half the bacon was very fatty and not cooked enough. Do not think I would order it again.

    We frequently visit Houlihans throughout the year and unfortunately this visit wasn’t the best. We had reservations made a month ahead and had no problem when we arrived. The server was excellent and the atmosphere was the usual. We were seated in the back room which was cold and that was a downer. When the food arrived is when the visit went downhill. I got the special steak and asked for medium rare and it came out well done. My wife got the Cajun chicken and it was over fried and dried. My mother got the crab cakes and they were ok. My wife wouldn’t let me ask about the food so we just ate what we could and left. We would definitely return but probably not for Valentine’s Day.

    My husband and I are never disappointed with Houlihan's. We both had the filet mignon, yukon mashed, and garlic green beans at lunch on Valentine's Day (that's our usual go-to meal at this restaurant). Steak is always done to perfection, and everything tastes delicious! Would highly recommend.

    $18 for a chocolate martini flight?! That's like a 20% increase from last year. Won't be doing that again. No wonder the price wasn't listed on the special menu.

    Food, service and ambiance were great. Two of us ate dinner for $75. Considering I has salmon but sandwich and my spouse had chicken strips, I thought that was a bit pricey. But the place was packed so they must be doing something right.
