Was seated in a corner booth near the bar. Was cozy and remarkably quiet even with a lot of surrounding activity. Joe was our server and went the extra mile to provide a wonderful experience.

Was busy but the waitress was attentive and the food was out to us in a decent amount of time. The quality of food was good for the price. We sat on the patio, the atmosphere was nice.

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.

I had 3 of the Deep Eddie grapefruit drinks and would sware the vodka was watered down. Either that or there was VERY LITTLE added. Such a disappointment when you meet friends for a light dinner and drinks. My husband decided to order a bourbon on the rocks to see if it was watered down. First and second we’re good but he said third was definitely watered down and it was visible by the light color.

I ordered the Cajun salmon special. Potatoes had no seasoning and green beans undercooked with stems.
Another family member orders salmon with same comments on the sides. We were celebrating birthday and the steak order by another family member was undesirable.
Sorry Houlihan ‘s we won’t be back.

What is the deal with not accepting the Landry Select card. Was told by server after she checked with management that you do not accept it. Found you on their website and will be calling the customer service regarding this on Monday. Apparently, you do accept the Landry select card.

We dine here several times a month including carry out!
Food and service always great !
This trip food quality was not quite up to what we have experienced in the past.
I hope this was a one time experience!
We had the lettuce wraps and fried shrimp
Lettuce was the usual ice burg but a different kind this trip had a different taste, shrimp was over cooked but the service was great !
Thanks

We went in yesterday a 5PM reservation for dinner. The waiter was terrible. He didn't come back to check on us. We asked for more water and he went over an checked his other customers. And it was more than two minutes before he brought us water. My wife stopped eating her dinner since she has no water.


No one from the management team came around and ask us how we were doing. We can go to Texas Roadhouse and someone from the management team comes over and ask how things are. Only missed doing that one time in the 3 years we have been going there and we usually go twice a month.

Not sure if we will go back again.

Ordered a manhattan drink came in a very small glass and only half full and was not a manhattan. I make them at home. Plus was $9.75. Horrible. Our great waiter could not take it back . We get great ones at Hereford House. Will not be back to Houlihans

I love eating at Houlihan’s but not so much last night. I ordered the chicken tenders as I do frequently. Always great. But for some reason they had a fish taste to them. I tried a piece from 3 of the tenders. They all tasted fishy. When I mentioned to the waiter was told perhaps they were fried in something that had previously been used to fry sea food. Asked me if I wanted a new order but I declined. I was pleasantly surprised when I got my bill and saw the chicken tenders had been removed. I’m still a Houlihan’s fan, just not last night.

We were there only an hour after they open and the floors were filthy. Fingerprints everywhere, bathrooms are appalling. I am so sad because this has always been a favorite of ours since it opened but in the last couple of years the standard of cleanliness has dropped significantly. Who wants to eat in such an unkempt setting? No telling what the kitchen looks like.

My son ordered the kids pizza with fries his fries definitely looked overcooked and they were very bland when we ask what did they put on the fries we were just told that they put their own seasoning blend. I got the KC strip with Macaroni and cheese and french fries once again the fries are very bland the macaroni didn’t have a taste to it either but that wasn’t even a big concern really my steak was cooked the way I liked it but the outside of the steak taste very burnt as if they burnt something on the grill top and instead of cleaning it off they just put my steak on there and continue cooking I only took two bites out of the state and that was it didn’t complain about it and I still paid for it

Hadn’t been to Houlihan’s in awhile. Honestly, the food wasn’t great. Portions were big, but quality wasn’t as good as I remember. Was kind of disappointed. Booth wasn’t very clean either. But they were speedy with our order.

I ordered the Buffalo Chicken salad. When it came, the chicken was a bit spicy which
I expected. About 5 minutes after receiving the salad, an order of buffalo chicken was
delivered to me ala carte because the chicken on the salad was not correct! I appreciate that the error was caught and I had a salad loaded with chicken as a result!

First bad experience we've eve had here. Wife ordered Panko shrimp and they were overcooked to point of almost being black. I ordered salmon special and did receive salmon but not the special. Masher potatoes were dry and cold. Grandson's burger was excellent. Should have objected when served but don't like to complain. Server should have seen that shrimp were burnt. When complained at end of meal and shrimp was taken off the bill but my wife woke up hungry this morning

Although we stated we had Open Table reservations, we were not credited until we received text from Open Table noting we hadn’t arrived for our reservation.

Our food arrived and we still had NO silverware or napkins. Food was good but Pot Roast was skimpy compared to past dining.

Overall it was good, but my spicy cauliflower dish was over sauced and not that great tasting.
