My friend & I had lunch at Houlihan's for Restaurant Week -- to help support the food service industry. We did the $15 fixed price lunch and not only was the food excellent, it was a bargain at that price.
It was fairly quiet, probably since it was a weekday lunch. Our server, Kelly, was just attentive enough. We both decided to take our desserts home, and Kelly even put the ice cream that came with mine in a separate container so the salted caramel gooey butter cake (which was heaven!) wouldn't get soggy.
Overall, great experience.

Houlihans does not disappoint! Their Restaurant Week menu was great and the food was excellent! Our service was perfect and well paced. For 45 minutes we could sit back and forget the world while enjoying great food.

Great experience and value for the money. We had lunch and it included a dessert which most don't. Food and service was superb. Only thing I would change was my garlic green beans were a little too crisp for me. I prefer them cooked just a bit longer.

Jalapeno stuffed chicken was great! Have had the regular stuffed chicken before and it is good but jalapeno version was even better. Service was very good this time as well. Sometimes it can be a little slow though.

I was awed by the atmosphere. It was mellow and comforting. Considering the current pandemic afoot. The service was slow, not sure what was going on, I decided to stay because I had never been there, and it was my birthday, I wanted the shrimp pasta, but it was recommended by the waiter to get the stuffed chicken. I loved it. I did not regret it. The chicken was juicy and flavorful, it had a good crunch like I like it. The mashed potatoes were great. The green beans could have been cooked a little longer and given a touch of salt, but overall it was great. I'd definitely go again.

The seating was very weird. We were seated at a table for two right in the middle of the restaurant. It was like we were on display. Uncomfortable. Boo!

We always love coming to Houlihan’s whenever we feel like eating out. Food is great, prices are very reasonable. Good atmosphere, clean, great service. Their menu has a lot of options. We had steaks and it was delicious.

IT was very good, food was excellent as always. Only thing I would complain about is why I never receive credit on Restaurants that I eat at. When I go into Open Table immediately it tells me I will not receive credit for this?

The
Action was nice. Our server was competent, but not very fast. It was difficult to tell if that was due to a slow kitchen or just a slow server. Not a big deal, just an observation

It was wonderful. Had a reservation for 5:15. Was seated on time with accommodations for two kids. Server very very nice. Kids got Mac and cheese nice portions and not cold. My salmon was good. One thing happened was chicken was over cooked way to crispy but it happens.

We were sat at a table for three in the front of the restaurant. The atmosphere was terrible. Also removed my favorite dish, steak and wedge salad. I thought this was one of your staple items. Very disappointing.

The salmon was dry and overcooked. green beans were too crunchy, like barely cooked and mashed potatoes were barely warm and looked like they were prepared hours before because of flavor, texture and color was a yellowish orange. Disappointing! I know you can do better!

Love the mushrooms. It felt very sterile, but our server was very nice, attentive, and masked up. I guess we will all have to get use to the lack of atmosphere at restaurants.
Doing what we have to do, but its not as special or enjoyablle. Not Houlihan's faulth.
