Scallops were way over cooked and the risotto dry, seems it was probably cooked and placed under heat lamps for too long.

We had to wait about 20 minutes for table even
With reservations. One meal came out cold and the others were just ok. When the cold one came out again the steak was like rubber. The server did take it off the bill which is what should have been done . I know houlihans is not gourmet dining but this night was really off

Houlihan's is a neighborhood treasure; long-time patrons like ourselves can only hope it survives these difficult times. That said, the restaurant's policy of denying patrons who make reservations to the outside seating area seems like an odd way to reward loyalty.

A bit disappointing for the following reasons:
1) My husband ordered the fried shrimp and it was tough.
2) Our server had no memory. We ordered coffee and she said it was brewing and then forgot twice after being reminded to bring it. I ordered a dessert to go and she forgot to bring it and had to be reminded twice.
3) I had a $25 Mastercard gift card from OpenTable and she nor her manager could apply it to the bill so I spent $25 more for two dinners than planned.

I had dinner with a friend at this restaurant on 9/10/20. I ordered the Chicken Piccata. I have eaten at this location many times over the past 10 years and have frequently had their Chicken Piccata, it was may favorite item on their menu. On this occasion my meal was terrible. The pasta was too chewy. I like my pasta al dente, but this just wasn't cooked enough. And the chicken was cool and very tough, it has always been very tender previously. After taking just a couple of bites I did not eat my dinner. I did not complain or send my meal back because I didn't want to make my friend feel uncomfortable. But I will be hesitant to return to this restaurant again.

We sat outside, so I cannot comment on the inside. Our food very good. Since the exterior tables do not have a solid surface, the method of cleaning concerned me at this covid time. Perhaps disposable placemats should be considered.

We asked for and received outdoor seating. Staff was friendly and service very good. We had a variety of drinks and meals ranging from burgers to chicken lettuce wraps and sautéd scallops with risotto. Our meal was served in a timely manner. We recommend the outdoor seating area at this time.

Was fun to go out and we really like to go to Houlihans, was a little slower than usual but other than that the food was great. I think ratings for ambience and such are a little unfair at the moment since places are at low capacity and that does make it feel a little weird.

Food is always good. Service can be off sometimes but overall good. Not the best beer selection and they changed some wines, not as good. Desert was very good. Overall one of the better experiences and good value for the buck.

Houlihans is only open for 25% capacity which is totally fine. Don’t like that you have to walk in the patio side just to eat inside. Especially when the parking lot is right by the main entrance. The food was amazing though! Everything is pretty expensive but very good. Even though they have very little business due to
Covid the service still was a little slow. Took a while for the waitress to come
Back most of the time. But she was very nice when she did. We had my birthday dinner there so I used my 15.00 off reward for a free entree my dinner was 2.00 that was great! houlihans held my ice cream cake in the freezer so we were thankful
For that during this
Whole covid mess! We will return in the future!

No one was at the hostess station. I had a reservation where I requested outside. The person that finally came to seat me, said they don’t take reservations for outside. He did not even look at his computer to see if I had a reservation. If he would have checked the reservation he would have seen that my friend had arrived and was already seated outside.

We had an 11:00 am reservation via OpenTable, but we're told they did not open until 11:30 when we arrived. The door was unlocked and the posted hours on door stated that they opened at 11:00 am.

The restaurant is not set up properly for social distancing. The hostess stand is directly in front of the kitchen and a line forms right next to tables were people are eating. Mask use by patrons is not enforced. I saw a staff person take off their mask to have a conversation with someone who was also not wearing a mask and they were within two feet of each other right next to the kitchen. There were used dishes and glasses stacked all over the place. Multiple staff members had their masks pulled under their noses.
