Delicious food and great service! What's not to like? We have dined at Houlihan's Overland Park three times in the last two months. Each time the food was very fine complimented by a beautiful presentation. I love to order the Salmon at Houlihan's because they do not overcook it. It literally melts in your mouth. The service is good, although it is sometimes hard to tell who is wait staff and who isn't because there is no uniform required.

Always have enjoyed eating at Houlihan’s in the past. However, your hostess at the front, lacks people skills , and really seems disinterested in greeting & waiting on customers to be seated.
Our waitress on the other hand, was very personable, and took our order & served us with class. Hats off to your waitress!

The service was the worst. It took over 10 minutes before we greeted and our drink order was taken. Then the waiter never brought our children the carrots and ranch they are suppose to get as starters for the kids meals. When I asked for the carrots he brought out a bag of baby carrots, that’s right a bag, they were not plated nor did they have ranch with them. It took almost 40 minutes for food to come out for 4 people. My wife’s steak was cold and so was my son’s mashed potatoes. Also I ordered my burger without onion and it had little chopped up onions on it. Then there was paper in my son’s mashed potatoes.

Bad service . It took 45 minutes for our food/ 20 minutes for our cocktails ... - granted we had a party of 8. We had to get a hold of someone to get a waiter to start our waters, menu, and drinks .
Also, sat us right by the kitchen - noise level and busyness of the kitchen, entire restaurant , and waiter traffic just added to the frustration of us waiting for our cocktails and food forever .

i had reservations for 5 oeaople but last minute had to add two more friends in and just showed up with 7 total and the staid was very accommodating! It was a birthday dinner so I had hats and presents for my friend and cake at the end and our waiter and the host were more than understanding! our apps and entrees came out at a reasonable time and we barely had to wait for our food to come out!

After our last couple of times at Houlihan's, we were disappointed mostly in the service and also in the change of their potato skins offering which is now very mundane so Houlihan's was not on the top of our "go to" list. The free birthday entree got us to try again and we weren't disappointed. The restaurant was packed, but our service was a vast improvement over our last few visits... sorry we don't remember her name, but our server was awesome in spite of having a large # of tables and every aspect of our dinner order from salad to the jambalaya to the brownie dessert was delicious. Thank you!

I’ve patronized Houlihan for several years and it was always the place for a friends get together but they continue to change their menu. The food was just ok. It’s disappointing and I hope they find their way back.

My experience at Houlihan’s is always great! I’ve never had to wait long periods for a table and they are always busy. Service is always friendly and speedy. My first visits I always got the fish and chips as it is so good but my last times there I have been trying the specials and they never disappoint. My daughter and I had the jambalaya on Fat Tuesday and it was delicious. My only suggestion is to plan on preparing more of the special. We were told we got the last two orders and it was only 7:15. I wouldn’t have been very happy having gone there just for the special and there not having it. I appreciate it is hard to predict customer volume but special should be available past 7:15. That would be my only issue. I love Houlihans!

We went because of Fat Tuesday.
We had Jambalaya, it was very good.
It had lots of large shrimp, chicken in the mix.

Our server this evening I believe his name was Robert. It took him a while to come take our drink orders. Then a bit to get them. Finally he took out order and food came out in a timely manner. Drink refills took over eight minutes to get refilled even though he passed the table at least five times. This is the fist bad experience we’ve had at Houlihans. Very disappointed. We love Houlihans but don’t know if we will be back for a bit.

I’m still recommending Hou’s, but the staffing was a HUGE miss on this visit. There were loads of employees (although it was difficult to discern because some were in flannel shirts, some in dress shirts, one guy in a chefs coat?) but most of them couldn’t assist with so much as a water refill. Our server was sunny and cheerful, until she wasn’t .. not sure what happened. Food was good, once it was all corrected to match what was ordered. 3of 5 checks had to be reworked- so far no issues with the bank processing. Willing to give them 1 more oppty. Ugh!

Made a reservation earlier in week, but when we arrived, we were seated by the door. It was 19 degrees out, and by the door there was a nice breeze with each new diner coming in. I asked to be placed in another location but really. The first table offered should be kept for patrons without reservations and who would like a quick meal. Just an untrained staff, and no regard for those who make a point to select this restaurant earlier as a destination.

Restaurant Week menu was very good - great variety. We expected the Appetizer portion to be small plates - they were full size - so great to share with everyone. Excellent meal - we had a great time.

Party of 4 adults - booth was a bit tight (no overweight people - all just regular adults)
No Coat hook or rack - nowhere to put our coats - which added to the booth being a bit tight. Will request a larger booth in the winter months.
