Houlihan's - Holmdel
inexpensive down home food. With open table can actually get a table with little wait time
Even though it was crowded we had a reservation thru open table and we were seated in 5 minutes The food was excellent
A special call out to Ashley, she provided outstanding service. Ashley was attentive, pleasant and offered suggestions. One of the best wait staff at Houlihan's.
Houlihan's is a great go to place for a quick bite or a full meal. My friend and I had Cosmos, nachos and large house salads with grilled chicken. The food and drinks were delicious and timely.
We will be back!
Food was good. Just wish the waiter was more attentive
Great service! We had 3 small children and our waitress was very accommodating, and helpful!
A steady stop for my husband and me. The food is always delicious and servers are attentive.
Great place for a quick bite to eat or a full meal.
Works for families and date night.
Good for those on a budget and those that like to splurge.
We go to Houlihan’s once or twice a month easily. This has been our location for the last eight years since moving to the area and have almost always had a great experience. In all the many times there have only been a handful of times where something was off but management always goes above and beyond to make it right. Whether it is taking something off the bill or giving a coupon for a free app or meal or both. I know some locations are closing but I truly hope that this spot never has the same fate!
Always great food and drink value, as well as excellent service.
It’s a casual favorite of our family. Consistently good food at a good value. Staff is friendly and the Open Table App allows you to make reservations and cut down the wait, especially on weekends for dinner.
Great food and Great service!
Brought the grandkids and all went well. Kids loved the options and I thought the food was good also.
Our waiter did an awesome job and was pleasure to work with. They accommodated all my needs.
Took my 5 kids. We ate until we were full. Service was excellent. A great go-to place.
Always count on them for good food and service.
Great food. Great service.
Very good food and service. Our waiter was very friendly and attentive.
always a great value and good food. The staff is friendly and they honor the reservation time
For a chain, this was a nice experience. We enjoyed ourselves, food was good, and Andrew our server did a great job.
Seating needs updating. Booth cushions lumpy and uneven. Veggies were overcooked and cold. Breadstick was a complete stale rock. Had to have replaced. But steak was hot and cooked well. And french onion soup was good. Waitress Katie was great. Attentive and made sure my special order was executed correctly. Loved the early bird meal special!
Houlihan's is always a great value for food, service and promptly honoring Open Table reservations any day of the week.
Good service was very good
It was crowded at first then it thinned out in about an hour. The staff is very efficient at seating. The waitress was awesome.
We were seated right away. Our server attended to us quickly. Our meals were brought out without delays and were very delicious.
The fod deals were good. However, the waitress made a mistake that totaled $17.99. Had we not caught this, we would have been overcharged by quite a sum. This was a turnoff to me. I may not go back so quickly.
Love going here. We had no utensils when we sat down. Had to take it from another table. Took a long time to get first beer. Food came on time. Kids meal did not come with apples or yogurt like it usually does. Waiter seemed very busy. Overall it was ok but could have been better.
Nice to be able to be seated upon arrival rather than added to a wait list. The lobby was crowded was we arrived
Reserving a table was great idea, the service and the food was great !
Seated right away.. had our favorite waiter, Frank .always attentive and good to the kids. Food was delicious as always
Food came out ice cold mash and veggies my 4oz steak was supposed to be cooked medium instead it was cold and so over cooked that it wasn’t even edible. I did leave there hungry and very disappointed as I have ALWAYS enjoyed the same meal every time I get a chance to go there. On the plus side ...The manger apologized and took my meal off the bill and gave me a free dessert that my husband ate lol
Houlihan's is our go to place for dinner. The food is always tasty and service is friendly and attentive. The prefix menu is great value and offers a nice variety.
I highly recommend it for families and or couples.
Very good. Our waiter was very friendly and attentive. Food was enjoyed. It’s one of our “go to” places.
We ordered full racks of ribs. This came with 2 nice size racks. My husbands were great. However, one of mine was very dry. The waitress was told and a manager came offer and at my request ordered another half rack. When the rack came it was delicious. Another manager came by and gifted us a free appetizer on our next visit. We not only will return, but will order the same ribs. This Houlihan location gives to the community and is very much appreciated by all residents. Thank you Houlihans! Darene K.
Waitress needed training The manager Alfredo more than made up for it . The food is prepared very well and portions are generous. Open Table reservations are a must. They don’t take reservations directly... It’s always a pleasure going anywhere with a open table reservation.. In this case, many were waiting. We walked right in and were seated immediately...
Food was great. Table location was so so...kind of like being on a highway. Requested a high top at the bar in my reservation...but ended up in the dining room. Our server was attentive-not overly friendly at all which is fine...as long as the food was good- which it was. Convenient dinner before a concert a PNC. I would go back.
on Sunday July 21
I was very disappointed in my entree prime rib which was
tough and gristly. I really don’t think it was really the prime rib cut that is usually fatty and tender.
The restaurant was very kind to bring me another dinner but the meat was the same. It was more like the top sirloin cut that is not as tender.
Rather than making a scene, I took the $23 loss and brought it home for my daughter’s dog. I’m sure he enjoyed it more than I did.
Staff was pleasant, courteous and friendly. We had a handicap person with our party and they did everything they could to accommodate us.
This was probably an off night. For some reason that night the service was very-very SLOW. Also, we had one of those servers that try to memorize everything. In this case the server kept forgetting to bring everything out. Also, the food was also poor too. (e.g. 1/2 a chicken wrap with barely any chicken) Hopefully, Holmdel Houlihans will get their act together soon.
Not sure what the kitchen was doing as it took a really long time to get our order and then didn’t get the dessert that was ordered
Ever since they went corporate quality and quantity is going downhill. They replaced their delicious rolls with some tasteless piece of bread, replaced delicious cheesecake with something that tastes like packaged goods
Good food clean large enough portions friendly service fast service good drinks
Very Good Service. Try to go when you have a coupon.
