Frozen fish stick fish Tacos were not eaten but waitress took them off the bill. Steak was ok, ribs were pretty good as usual.
Much nicer than the Hohlihans in Hasbrouck Heights.

I met a friend for lunch and it was quiet and comfortable in our booth. We both had the onion soup which too salty so neither of us finished it. I also ordered the chicken/avocado rolls from the appetiser but they were much too spicy so I needed Tums afterwards. Next time I think I will just stick with burgers...

I had the NY Strip. Asked for it medium and it was more medium well. A bit tough and bland. I’ve had much better in other establishments. Mash Potatoes were mediocre. I did have the Hawaiian Lemonade which was very good. Waitress was very nice and attentive.

Celebrated Valentine’s Day at our favorite date night restaurant. We were happy to see Bobby, our favorite server, who always makes us feel like special guests, remembering what we drink, where we like to sit, etc. Had a fun, relaxing meal.

There was a lot of food, with a 4 course prixe fix menu. I'm not sure Houlihan's menu was worth $50 for 2 people. The restaurant was so busy, they ran out of clean spoons, and we were served soup with a plastic spoons. The server was overwhelmed and couldn't stop by to check on us. Someone else (busboy?) had to take our order, and we waited quite a while for the entrees which were delivered before we finished the appetizer. They dropped off the entrees and didn't clear away any of the other dirty dishes.

Our entire meal was very good. John T., our server, was very helpful, courteous, and accommodating throughout. The food was prepared at the perfect temperature and the portions were very satisfying.

We look forward to enjoying another memorable meal at this Houlihan's and will recommend it, to our friends/family.

Food was average, price was good, because of covid restrictions not sure it's a fair review of the establishment, but it has indoor dinning so that's a plus !

Lovely Thanksgiving meal. Traditional turkey dinner was great. Service was very pleasant especially as the waiter was working on a holiday! The Covid spacing and other procedures were in effect and my party of 3 felt quite safe and comfortable. They made a very pared down Holiday as pleasant as possible.
