I say everything on the menu is Great i had the scallops with Rosetto the best. Our server was Earl and was very friendly and helpful, he deserves to be recognized as a great employee, but I know Houlihans does not recognize their employees which is sad.

The French Onion Soup was a touch salty according to my wife, but as usual very tasty to me. Ordered rare steak fajitas which came out as we desired. Service was attentive and friendly.

Only reason I didn’t give it a 5 is once again one of our favorite dishes was taken off the menu. We purposely go to Houlihan’s for the Down Home Pot Roast. We wanted to order this dish and was told now they only offer it on Wednesdays. Since corporate has taken oven many of my favorite dishes have been removed or changed, very disappointing. Much better before corporate got involved. Wait staff and managers still the best!

Our server did not bother to come over - only to take the order and bring the check. The table next to us who cane in 10 minutes later had a different server who stopped by their table all the time and brought their drinks way before we got ours. We got ours after 20 minutes and the food when it was almost cold. The flatbread was not crispy and was watery and mushy. Felt unwelcome and did not enjoy the visit or the food at all.

Our server Alura was great. She made our Valentines day meal so special. Alura was very aware of everything on the menu. She also made suggestions that sounded so delicious and mouth watering. Of course we followed her suggestions and were very pleased. The food was absolutely delicious. We ordered from the Special Valentine Day menu. We finished every bite on our plates. We also did not wait very long to be seated. We were very pleased with Open Table reservations. It all worked out great. We had a very happy and memorable Valentine's Day!

Valentine’s Day outing with wife and two daughters. We all found something we liked and had a relaxed meal. Sitting near the kitchen was a pretty busy spot but everything else went well and we weren’t rushed.

Houlihan’s is used to be such a nice location with yummy food, but this time it was a bit disappointing (small dishes, quality and taste of food, everything almost cold). Hopefully next time better!

Service was a little slow but they were very busy so understandable. Food was a little bland in seasoning but fresh. Service very good. Our waitress and the manager checked on us and apologized for the slow serve time but again they were very busy and we appreciated them acknowledging that. Overall it was a good night

Second visit to Houlihan's this week. This is a great place to go. The food is always delicious and service is good. Their extensive menu offers many options, so even if you go frequently, you can always try something new. Most recently, I had the potato soup with big chunks of potatoes and a house salad with grilled chicken. I had to ask for a doggie bag because the 1/2 order of nachos, split with my hubby, filled me up.

I am sure that we will be back for the end of the month.

We were very happy to see Houlihan’s finally taking reservations and made a last minute reservation online for 7:45 on Friday night in the bar. Houlihan’s was packed as usual, and we were asked to wait for a table. After about five minutes we were pleasantly surprised that our name was called and we were escorted to a high top in the bar. Our server Madison promptly greeted us, and the rest of the night went perfectly. Drinks were great, and the food was good with the exception of the French dip which was extremely salty. Madison was a terrific waitress and a charming young lady.
