The food was quite good, but it would have been nice to have some rolls/bread with our soup and some coffee with dessert. It would also have been good if the server took away the dirty dinner plate when he served dessert.

Overall it was excellent. Except there was a table with ten young girls, about 10 years old, right next to us. The adults with them were sitting at a different table. The girls were very loud…typical young girls. But it did not make for a very enjoyable dining experience for us.

Very clean and service and food was excellent as always. We were there on a Friday around 5:30 and the noise level was high, difficult for us to have a conversation and hear. I do love the big fireplace that warms up the room and they have the best hamburger around!

Made a reservation as a going away party for someone who's worked with me for years, and honestly was beyond impressed with their level of service. They made us feel like VIP's and our server could not have been more attentive. Thanks for the great first time experience!

We hadn't been to Houlihan's in a couple years and tried it on Saturday night with 2 friends. In general, not a lot has changed with the food menu, which disappointed us. Over the years, some of our favorite appetizers were no longer listed on the menu and the items that replaced them are not exciting. Food portions are not large, and food was average, with the exception of the grilled salmon which was overcooked and dry. Service was good.

While the overall experience wasn't bad, it will probably be a while before we visit again.

Houlihan's is a go-to for us. The drink specials are great, especially the Mai Tai. We enjoy the food and appetizers. The potato soup is tasty, too. The restaurant is clean, service is attentive and the food is always cooked just right and comes to the table warm.

Could not find our reservation at first. Then waited 15 min for a server to even acknowledge us. 20 min to receive our second drink, but food was fantastic, came up quick and hot! Servers being overworked and manager took too long to offer support, blame put on slow bartendars and Homecoming croud (shouldn't you know this is coming and plan for it)

Food and service were neutral. Nothing stood out about it. It was noisy; however it was busy at the time so understandable. Nothing about my experience, including the food, would compel me to come back.

Great service but slower than normal. I figured part of the time we are in with pandemic. I tried the special squash pasta vegetarian style. Good but needs more flavor. Assume better with sausage but I do not eat that. Over all still love the place. Wish for more locations

Birthday. Reservation was easy, hosts were nice. Doorway was blocked with a big square table for a teeny bottle of sanitizer. Steaks were great, Shrimp was cold - but tasty, salad was limp and tasteless. Diet Coke and tea were good. Did not try desserts or appetizers. Perfect atmosphere. Booth was comfy, nice room not too bright/dark, good parking, nice bathroom although someone had ripped a soap pump off of the Men's room wall and it was not yet fixed. Waiter should speak a little louder and not turn away while speaking/being spoken to - especially when masked. He was very attentive otherwise, and paying was fast and easy. Menu indicated they had O'Douls, bet they had only other brands of non-alcoholic beer.

Waitress was very, very good - asked for a well-done steak but it was medium rare - sent it back & a new, well-done steak was brought out - very pleased!
