We got there at 4:45 for our 5:00 appointment. They couldn’t see us because they didn’t have any servers on duty yet. There were two of them that were supposed to show up at 5 o’clock. I asked if we could sit down at a table but the answer was no, not without a server. So we sat by the cold door. Finally, a server showed up. They were going to seat us at one of those half booth / half table things. I asked if we could sit at an empty table about 10 feet from there. The person who seated us had to get permission of the manager. The manager should’ve assumed the role as a server, if there was no server available. The server who showed up had to immediately wait on five tables. He was good, all things considered. But c’mon … you want business, but can’t staff for it. I don’t want to hear about Covid. Make it happen.

We were seated close to the door. It was a very cold evening, our seats were cool. We wore our coats while eating our meal.

My wife and I went on a date and the restaurant was not too busy which was great. The server was very slow , charged me for a side salad that I never received, but because he was so slow I just paid the $3.95 and removed that from his tip. We were in a hurry to get to another event after dinner and I figured if I asked him to remove the salad that would make us late or I would have handled this differently.

Don’t sit by the back done where people are constantly opening it to deliver to go orders. The back table gets a big gust of wind every time and it can be cold.

Our appetizer was cold. My husband got a salad and I got a hamburger. I took one bite and couldn’t stand all the grease and lack of taste. The salad was heavily covered in Mayo. Not some place I will return to and I’m not a picky eater at all.

We arrived before our reservation. No waiters until 5:00 on a Friday night!!! Several people seated ahead of us, almost like the hostess was ignoring us. She wouldn’t seat us away from the noisy bar or away from the kitchen. Server was great. Good was good.

On previous visits to Houlihans, the food was very good. Yesterday (Thanksgiving) the service was great, we were seated almost immediately in a booth per our request but the food was mediocre at best. We were very disappointed in the quality of the food.

What a wonderful experience. Excellent service and the food options were outstanding. Our experience gets 5 Stars from us. Waitress was attentive but not a pest. Food was served in perfect time giving us an opportunity to enjoy our wine and an opportunity to visit prior to enjoying the meal. Will return again and again and again....

One soup was cold, the other was super hot. It was the same soup, yet they came out at different times and very different temps. The slaw with the fish and chips was brown, slimy and totally unappetizing. I can’t even tell you how it tasted, it looked way to gross to even try. The server was nice, but disappointing he didn’t even notice. He let us know there were issues with the kitchen. Maybe it was just an off night?

They had trouble getting the medium cook done correctly on our filet mignon. After the 3rd attempt we were able to enjoy it. The service was great and everything they could do was done to make us satisfied diners. We really enjoyed our drinks and appetizer.
