Since 1972, we've believed in quality ingredients, cooking from scratch and having fun. From our famous 'Shrooms and Stuffed Chicken Breast to our unique burger blend and ahi tuna, we believe in celebrating the small things and that every moment deserves a toast in its honor. So grab a drink (perhaps our signature Long Island Iced Tea), enjoy some great conversation and let us serve you an excellent meal.

Our food took over an hour to arrive. Our appetizer was cold, and we had to ask for drinks. Didn't used to be like that. We took friends to dinner. I 🙄

We love that sides can be switched out. My husband is a diabetic & avoids carbs. The mashed cauliflower option is scrumptious.

I’ve been a patron of Houlihans for several years unfortunately this visit was not the best. You could see the we’re not enough servers and our wait for food after our order was quite a while. I’ve notice the service is going down for not only this location but for other locations as well. Hope this is not a sign of closures.

It was incredibly loud. We had a hard time hearing each other talk.

Our server, Tito (I think), was great, and the food was good once the kitchen got it as ordered. Unfortunately, though, my grilled asparagus didn't see near enough of the grill. It wasn't even warm and was still completely raw. Not my favorite.

Highly recommend the pre-fix dinner. We had the stuffed mushrooms (always a treat), the meatloaf, sedona shrimp pasta, vanilla bean cheesecake, and creme brulee (the brownie batter cake was sold out). All were seriously delicious.

Our server answered all our questions on the new menu, kept our water glasses filled, and was very friendly. We'll be back!

We stopped by for the Happy Hour prior to going to a movie. The food was good, however the amount of food for the $5.00 was pretty small. Our waiter was very nice, however the service was VERY SLOW for no busier than they were. We ordered 3 appetizers and it took over 25 minutes for them to come out. He never checked back as the patio did start to fill up more and they were either understaffed for waiters or in the kitchen. We wanted to order another appetizer because we were still hungry, but we knew that it would never come out on time. :-(

25 minutes exactly to get a drink from the time we ordered. No apologies. Food portions small. Door squeaks obnoxiously loud every time it is opened. Manager should notice these things. We never saw one

Everything was great except you were out of stock of the vegetarian burger that our guest had been looking forward to. It was part of why we chose your restaurant.

Our visits have always included great food and exceptional service. We like that it is in our city and do not have to battle traffic nor pay for parking. I especially like the ability to pre-register our dining time.

The tomato bisque is AMAZING! If you get it ALWAYS ask for extra cheese fritters. They’re free and once you’ve tasted them with the soup, you’ll understand why. If you order the endless soup and salad for $9.95 you’ll be so happy you did, because the soup is very filling. Service was great and well worth the price for the food received.

I will still recommend this location because it’s my favorite . I just don’t know what happened this night . My service was bad , server had a lack of priority to wait on us and she rather to focus her time on doing her side work .

Burger was over-cooked and underwhelming. Most bars have a better burger. The Steak on the Ramen bowl was great, but the ramen was bland and we found it unusual that is didn't contain any broth. My guest enjoyed the So Cal Fish tacos. The high point was the avocado toast appetizer...which was VERY good.

As a life long resident of the metro area I have dined at Houlihans many times. Every previous experience was great, it is hard for me to believe they have become so bad as far as their food is concerned. On this occasion I ordered the French dip sandwich . The sandwich I was served was undoubtedly the worst I have ever had, period. The "roast beef " was obviously precooked and presliced somewhere far away. It had the texture, unnatural color, odd shape and paper thinness of a lunch meat you would buy in a grocery store, and not in the deli but the prepackaged processed meat products. And even with the cheap low quality meat there were only five slices total on the sandwich. Poor quakity and poor value are not a good combination and nothing I would have ever expected from Houlihans.......lesson learned.

There were a lot of high school prom attendees at dinner so the service was a little slower than normal but our server was rushing around making sure all of her tables were covered.

I chose Houlihan's for an Easter lunch with family. I live close to this Houlihan's so I have been there often. I know I can always count on Houlihan's for good food, and good pricing. The staff has always been friendly, fast and always willing to help.

For my second time at this Houlihan when I asked for dressing on the side it had lots of dressing on the salad.
A manager came by, but so quickly with food in my mouth couldn’t tell her by the time she had walked passed.
I love Houlihan and their food, My salmon was cooked to perfection.
I guess I’ll ask for no dressing and see what happens
