This was my third visit to Houlihan's and I'm just as impressed as I was on my first visit. The food selection, food quality, and service are impeccable. Each time I've been there I tried something new on the menu and each time, its been amazing. My only problem is that I don't have a favorite item because each one was amazing. The only problem you'll have at Houlihan's, is making a decision on what to try. For this lunch meeting, I tried the Seared Ahi Salad which was light, refreshing, and full of flavor.

I had come for lunch and loved it so I decided to go for dinner. Lunch is brought out to you very quickly(i think 5 or 8 min from order to serving). I had the scallops with Lemon, asparagus risotto. It was delicious although only "warm" and not hot when served.(I didn't complain but I prefer my food hot) My husband had the seafood medley with pasta(can't remember what it's called) but he said it was delicious and seafood was perfectly cooked. Cocktails were delicious. It's reasonably priced for the food you get. Will definitely return.

The dining experience would have been really nice overall, but the waiter was not very good. And he had a "rude" mouth on him. We were having a conversation and he was sweeping the floor all around our table (yuck! can that not wait until were gone!)and he made a commitment about what we were talking about and never looked at us. All other tables around us were empty. We all looked at each other and decided it was time to leave. He didn't even thank us for coming or said good bye. The food was good.

Restaurant was full but they saved a table for when we arrived. Friday early evening. Quite noisy. Placed order and salad arrived before we were given napkins and silverware. Couldn't get our waitress' attention so stopped another one passing. She promptly brought us some small paper napkins instead of the cloth wrapped silverware. Once she understood she brought it. Food, almond trusted talapia and salads were awesome. Looked great and tasted great. Had to ask waitress for water and tea refills. Service may have been result of lack of staff or to many tables assigned to waitress. They are friendly and food is great.

It's a nice place to go to for lunch. Great deals for lunch and if it takes more than 15 min to get your lunch out during the week day...they comp the meal. Love the baked potato soup and caesar salads there. The taos chipotle turkey wrap was great also.

Food was promised in about 15 minutes because we ordered a hamberger "Well Done". We did not receive the food for 30 min and the hamburger was cooked Medium Well. This is the second time we've experience bad service and food items and ingredients missing. We will not return.

Not a good experience this time. Did not honor my reservation. Was told they do not take reservations; just puts you at top of list. Tried to seat us at a high table in the bar. After waiting 20 minutes for the requested booth on the upper level, they tried to seat us at a booth on the lower level. Probably never looked at my request on their computer. Waited 30 minutes for requested booth on upper level. Hostesses had an attitude. Wonder if they even checked me in on the computer and if I received my points?

First time visit. Moved from inside to outside on patio because of the happy hour specials and the evening was quite nice. They do allow smoking outside so if the smell of smoke, cigar and cigarettes, bothers you, don't dine outside. Great happy hour specials even late in the evening. Pickle fries at great and the Chipotle Chicken Nachos are very good and plenty for two to share. The waitstaff are friendly, helpful and attentive. Definitely will go back.

We were seated almost immediately, which was a big surprise since it was Valentines Day and we expected a long wait no matter where we went. The Valentines Day special menu was a great surprise, the food was cooked perfectly, excellent in taste and portions. Service was very good from the waitress, the bar and the kitchen. Overall pleasant experience and we will recommend Houlihans to family, friends and acquaintances.

The service at Houlihan's was excellent - they were prompt & friendly and had a whole team deliver our food to us. I always appreciate this because the server is not always available right when the food comes out of the kitchen.

My only complaint is the prices vs. the portions. The pricing is similar to that of Grand Lux Cafe or Cheesecake Factory, however; at those places you know that you're going to eat a full meal and still take half of it home because the portions are so large. At Houlihan's, the prices were $14-$20 dinner entrees and I still left hungry. I definitely don't always expect huge (American) portions, however; I would then expect to pay less.

Other than that, it was excellent!

We went for a basic dinner, didn't expect much. It was so good!! They have a whole collection of "small plates", like tapas but real meals instead of appetizers. We split a flatbread (yum) then I had the 4 oz. filet and my husband had scallops. The portions were perfect and the food was amazing! You didn't feel like you needed to be rolled out afterwards. That plus a glass of wine was only $39. Wine list is only so-so, but the bar was very well stocked. I get the feeling it can get pretty rowdy late at night, but when we were there it wasn't croweded. We will definitely return!

The only Houlihan's we'd ever eaten at was the one at the bottom of the Empire State Building until this visit! We had hummus, bruschetta as appetizers, and they were both wonderful. The goat cheese on the bruschetta was amazing!
We had the grilled shrimp, the meatloaf, and the chicken fajitas. Everything was great!

It is an easy location to meet and park. The food is good and consistent, service is fast. It is noisy if you are trying to have a business meeting where you need to "hear" then I would recommend a different location.

The atmosphere and hostesses were very friendly and welcoming. The noise level was a bit loud for our tastes. The food was pretty good - although the kitchen made several errors resulting in our party of 4 receiving incorrect menu items. (it was almost comical) none in our party cared for the spicy honey mustard dressing. The grilled shrimp and salmon were excellent!! Did not care for the bread cut into chunks and spread around the entree.

The server was very polite and helpful in getting things straightened out. He seemed embarrassed because of all the kitchen mistakes. It would have made an impact if the manager had taken the time to apologize for our inconvenience since he WAS aware of the problems... although he was very nice

FABULOUS (as always)! They've introduced an 9oz prime steak w/2 sides (even grilled asparagus, if you choose) that is to die for -- and under $20! What a deal! Like they say, you don't usually find this grade of steak anywhere but a high-dollar steak house.

ALWAYS have a wonderful time here. We tried their "prime" strip steak & it was awesome! For less than $20 you get 9oz of steak thick enough to "Pittsburgh" and grilled asparagus! Don't know how they get so much smoke/grilled flavor in to their food, but it's all outstanding quality and flavor. Good prices & portions, as well!!

We go to Houlihans several times a month because we love their food & their promotions. They've always got something new on the menu to try and if you're on their email list you get notice of their weekly specials. Plus, they often hand out promotions in the restaurant to use when you return. LOVE IT!!
