I love Houlihans! I ordered the Impossible burger and it was delicious! I do wish they had more vegetarian/ vegan options!

Waited an hour after ordering our food, was told it got lost in the shuffle, never received our appetizer, and still had to pay in full. The manager could have at least came out and tried to apologize rather than leaving it to the waiter who may not have been at fault.

I visit this Houlihans restaurant two or three times a month and this visit wasn't up to the normal standards. My bowl of soup had been spilled on the plate and frankly looked like a mess. Our server looked like he slept in his shirt and was very inattentive. We would have understood his lack of service if the restaurant had been full but it was almost empty when we arrived; it did fill up eventually. We had to ask for refills on water and iced tea more than once and then for ice since both were lacking it. Our orders were done correctly but the waiter's general attitude was not up to this restaurant's usual service levels. We will be back however, as the food is always consistently good. I am hoping they finally return the chicken tortilla soup to the menu though!!

Houlihans has always been a favorite of mine may not always be the first place I choose to go to but it’s always a great place to grab a quick dinner especially when you have grandkids with you. I ordered the char crusted Ahi tuna salad and it was good, but I did have to ask for a little more dressing. The real disappointment came when I saw the chicken tenders that the grandkids ordered, they look like big clumps of overcooked breaded chicken. Not only did it look unappealing the taste was not good either. I should’ve taken a picture and posted it. I feel like children, grandchildren deserve better. If you put effort into adult meals put effort into kid meals too.

I go to Houlihan's frequently, and it is consistently decent quality. It's a great place for happy hour - the discounts on food and drinks during that time are excellent.

Waiter forgot to order my side Cesar salad to go with my entree. So, I told my server about my salad when the food came. Waited to get it, never came. So I had my waiter cancel the salad when he came to ask how was everything.

The special of corned beef and cabbage was just fair.
The meat was quite "chewy", disappointing.
The cabbage had no seasoning.
The restaurant was very busy, but the service was fine.
A wrong day to go.

The drinks that are usually spectacular and the reason we picked Houlihan’s were off. The food as just okay as well. Typically it is always good, but maybe it was just this location?! Not sure.

The safety was good. The staff wore masks. There were barriers between booths. The food as always was delightful. The service was attentive but not over bearing. I've been going there for years and plan to continue.

I met my former boss for a quick bite. She ordered a drink and the first three liquors were no longer available -- the bar was out. It took at least 15 minutes to receive her drink. Then it took at least 40 minutes for our waiter to remember that we still had menus at our table, and that he had not taken our order. No apology was offered. We had our favorite stuffed mushrooms -- fantastic as always. We'll be back -- and if (wish I had gotten his name) we are offered to sit in the same waiters section, we will ask to move.

Sadly, the waiter cost himself & the restaurant another table/$ -- we were there from 6:30 p.m. until 8:45 p.m. Had his service been more expedient, we would not have been there so long.

Ordered Two specials Chix Fajitas.
15 mins after placing our order the same server came back and offered to take our order. He apparently forgot he took it 15 mins earlier. Disappointing.
The food was tasty but they only gave us 2 small tortillas to use. There was enough chicken and peppers left to fill 2 more tortillas. Disappointed again.

I made reservations for 7pm & when I checked in a little before 7pm I was told there would be a wait. She advised I could wait in my car & they would text when my table was ready. My cousin had to run in to use the restroom after about 10-15 mins after 7 & asked the hostess how much longer. She was informed that there were people in front of us & the hat they would contact us when available. It was about 7:30pm when we were finally contacted. Honestly, 30 minutes isn’t too big of a deal but what is the point of a reservation when you’re seated 30 minutes after?
After the wait things were better. The hostess was nice so no complaint there. Our waitress was very prompt & helpful with the menu. Our filet Mignon came out delicious along with the asparagus. The Mac-n-cheese however was pretty bland to me. My pink lemonade alcohol drink was a little too sweet for me as well.
The restaurant was very packed when we got there with people waiting to get seated. It looked like the table were space out & some shields up where the booths were. The employees were all in mask from my observation.
Only big complaint is the reservation but everything else was great! Always enjoyed going to Houlihans.

Normally extremely consistent, tasty food and attentive service at fair prices. Yesterday, service was excellent - but food was average. Further, I asked for my heartland salad with salmon to have no onions, dressing on side, and salmon medium rare. Well, it came out with onions, dressing on it, and fish was well done. I ate it - didn’t have time during business lunch to send it back, nor did I want to make a fuss. I pointed out to my server after my guests left - she gave me a brownie. A nice gesture, but I don’t eat desert - frankly would rather have had her take that item off my bill or given me a voucher to come back. I’m sure I’ll return at some point - but it will be awhile. I’m not mad, just disappointed. I hope you’ll take this feedback correctly. Thanks
