Had the Prix fix menu. Just enough food to satisfy all your cravings. What great choices. I hope you keep this around.

The waitress was surly and difficult. She got the order wrong and refused to acknowledge her mistake. The salmon was dry and burned as well. The menu is limited, and there were very few diners in the restaurant, so I'm not sure why they couldn't get it right. My dining companion remembered that this waitress had acted this way before and that our food was overcooked as well. Seems Houlihan's doesn't really care about their customers any more.

Not as good as usual. Service was slow even though they didn’t seem that busy. Two out of three dinners were fine. But I ordered fish and chips. They came out soggy and not good, probably because they sat under warmer for too long. We had waited awhile for our dinners to come out. When I said something to server all she said was sorry. In the past if something wasn’t right, a manager would always come over to talk about it. I was disappointed this visit.

It is my understanding that; they were short on staff so service was horrible and food was rushed

A favorite neighborhood restaurant. A place where we've celebrated many a birthday- including the last visit. Can't beat the scallops!

We made a reservation but still had to wait 15 minutes. Our appetizer (Buffalo wings) came out cold. Our waitress disappeared and did not check on us after our entrees came out. We needed more ketchup and tartar sauce but had to finish our meals without the ketchup and tartar sauce.

Four adults shared a spinach dip with lavosh and 2 full racks of ribs, delicious as always. Waitress was great. Tables were far enough apart. You are sitting on blacktop in a parking lot so if you are looking for ambiance go somewhere else. We have been getting take out since March and found the quality of Houlihan's food has not changed.

This is the second time I have reserved a table well in advance and yet there’s nothing available when we get there. I wonder why they take reservations if you still have to wait 15 or more minutes.

Upon arrival the restaurant did not have a table ready nor even close to having one ready. I don’t believe they even looked at reservation list. After I reminded them of reservation we were seated at a table for six. It was fine and the waiter was a very nice young man. Unfortunately they had large fans at either end of their tent which I thought were not allowed. Unhealthy for patrons- we were at the last table at far end or I would not have felt safe.

It was hot out but they have it covered outside. Service was nice and didn’t feel rushed like most places. Enjoyed the food. We both had the pre fixed menu.

We ate here late on a Saturday night when only outdoor dining was permitted by State law. The restaurant did a great job with social distancing and our food was all fresh and quite good. It did seem like the restaurant is taking a minimal approach to business (minimal staff, limited menu) during COVID-19 restrictions, but it was still nice to get outside and have a meal with others. Service was not the best for the number of folks in the restaurant, but again I would say this is on-par with most establishments right now.

Lovely afternoon to eat outdoors! Service was good and server was friendly. Would have preferred if fan was in a different location,, (not at my back) but it helped circulate the air.

We had a reservation set for Valentines Day for 2, the had a paper list to go off of but our names was on their electronic tablet. They didn't have a table for us ready so they had us sit on a high table in the bar area. The host was very nice and considerate for their mistake while the hostess had a very rude attitude about the situation asking roughly if we even had reservations to begin with, when we clearly did since we were in their system. Food was good and the waitress was nice. Although the food did take a while to come out and it wasn't overflowing.

The food was very good, better than what you would expect at a chain. The service was somewhere between good and very good. My only complaint would be that the music was a bit on the loud side.

Alyssa is a great server . Patient , made great recommendations and just cares . Great to see such a nice attitude . We had the wings with the mango hot sauce and the mozzarella sticks . Sizzling fajitas and cheeseburger were terrific . This desert we took a picture of was like an apple pie w ice cream but I can’t remember the name . Really good though and Alyssa recommended it :)

New Year’s Eve, and there was way too many people there. We had a reservation so we didn’t wait to be seated. There were at least 15 people waiting for a table. Normally, Houlihan’s does an OK job. Tonight… Our food came out Ice cold. Steaks. $29 steaks. We put dinner in to go container and got out of there. It was so much chaos, we didn’t even stick around to call a manager over.

We've been to Houlihan's a number of times. The food served on Christmas Day was not as good as we've had on previous visits. Served luke warm. Watery mashed potatoes. Vegetables burned.

One person in our party had to wait for a long time before she got her meal - everyone else was finished eating their food - I felt awful about this. I know it was busy but we never was offered an apology or a discount on her meal. Very disappointing.
