It was a slow night as the lockdown had just been lifted. We went out to celebrate my daughter's last day of classes before graduation. We mentioned it in passing to the server and suddenly we had a free dessert for her to enjoy. It was a great gesture from the staff.

Waiter seemed overwhelmed with the crowd. He was rude and acted like we were an annoyance. He took the wrong order and then said it was our fault because we didn’t speak loud enough. We didn’t let his comments annoy us, we took our food to-go instead of dinning in after that.

I ordered the Chicken Tortilla Soup and it was warm at best. I had the stuffed Chicken for an entrée with mashed potatoes and green beans. The stuffed chicken was hot and tasty as well as the green beans but the mashed potatoes were cold. They brought some replacement potatoes later but by then it was really too late. Not sure I'll be returning anytime soon.

Bit into a chicken wing and it was refrigerator cold. Server came back and asked if we wanted new wings. To not be difficult and to not want to seem rude I just accepted and moved on.

Had a great evening. They were busy but kept everything moving. All of us loved our food. KC Strip was actually one of the better steaks I've had in KC, even in higher end steak houses. Shirt Rib burger was fantastic (I stole a bite) and my daughters liked their food and finished it all.

The restaurant itself is nice and our server was very friendly and helpful however the other waiter who was bringing the dishes has not clue about what his job should be. He brought our entrees when we were still eating our appetizers and I even saw him bringing desserts to another table when they were only half way through their entrees. My husband had the pesto salmon which was a little bland but ok. I had the ahi tuna salad and while I did not expect fresh tuna with the restaurant being in KC, there were a couple of pieces that did not smell very good (out of only 6 small slices for the whole salad) and that I chose not to eat for fear of being sick.
We went back to Houlihan’s because we had received dining vouchers after a less than good experience at the Fairway restaurant but I think this one was even worse. Honestly, I am not surprised that they are closing most of their restaurants in the KC area.

My only complaint was they didn’t have ice cream to go with my dessert. I was surprised they didn’t have broccoli as vegetable. Other than that I was pleased with the service. I’ll definitely be back to try other entrees and to take advantage of the happy hour specials.

Ive been a loyal customer since the day Houlihans opened on the Plaza in 1972! It is sad to say goodbye. Since the Fairway Houlihans closed it is no longer a go to place.😢

My wife and split a salad and had different dinners but both experienced upset stomachs after dining. We were treated very well by the server at the table. But something in the kitchen may have caused the issue. It put a damper on the evening.

Honestly not our best time here! The best part was that we got right in with no wait. The server started out great answering my questions about items gluten free. I ordered sweet potato fries, but was told that the menu was a lie bc they aren’t gluten free. Which was fine and ordered something else.
Our appetizer came out after our meal, the drinks ordered came with our meal... two of the three meals were incorrect and didn’t include everything it was suppose to and found two hairs in one of the meals.

I’ve always loved it in the past but doubt we would go back to this location.

Delicious food, great service. Half off wine bottles on Tuesdays even on New Year’s Eve. Don’t understand why someone would rate them bad review.
