    Food was underwhelming: our sides were cold and very small portion. The drinks were ridiculously expensive. My burger didn't have LTO as requested. Seems like special requests are ignored.

    We are gluten intolerant and they were accommodating. Food was good but service was inattentive when toppings were wrong and we had to wait 15 minutes before getting her attention to correct the issue after getting our food.

    Stopped in for dinner because we hadn't been to a Houlihan's in eons. Very good menu, with lots to choose from. My wife's burger was perfectly cooked and I really liked my chicken pesto flatbread. Lisa was our server and she was friendly, efficient, didn't auction off the food and checked back to see how we were. The place was packed and she was really good. Prices are par for the course for this kind of restaurant and we enjoyed our meal.

    He food was fine. The service was very good. Thank you Rikki! When we checked in for our reservation, I asked for a booth . The girl said she had us in for a table. We passed 3 open booths on the way to our table. There was nobody waiting to get seated. We had to listen to tables on either side of us. It seems like the hostess didn’t want to be bothered. She was an Asian girl with dark hair. I didn’t think I was asking for mush. Oh well. When we go to IHB they never have had an issue with me asking for a booth.

    Absolutely wonderful but be aware that happy hour drinks can only be ordered at the bar so I wish I would’ve been told this before I ordered my draft at the booth right next to the bar.

    I’ll start off by saying our server was lovely and efficient; this review is of no reflection. The food was a solid terrible. Caesar salad was nothing but romaine sprinkled with croutons and artificial dressing. The chicken sandwiches were gross; breaded chicken - over fried and crumbly. Kids pasta covered in nasty red sauce, which our child spit out. We even tasted it to verify true. The bill was overpriced for disgusting food. Not returning.

    Med rare steak came out well done.. our server told us after waiting 45 mins (the wait for the food is not the issue at all) that “they’re playing your food now” when I say that to guests, I know you’ve been waiting and I’m right back in the kitchen waiting for them to finish plating and bring it right out. Maybe another 10 minutes go by and someone brings our food. It’s cold at this point except the ahi tuna, which was warm….. maybe it’s just me who likes cold ahi tuna??& steak is over done - thank god the wedge was good as hell…
