We've enjoyed Houlihan's many times, but this night was a bit underwhelming. We were seated immediately and our waiter was pleasant enough, but was clearly having a bad night. We waited dryly through most of our meal before our second drinks arrived and had another long wait after dinner, which ended our desire for dessert. I then received an incorrect check with an extra drink added to it, and had to wait again for that to be corrected. But the food was good, although the portions a bit small. We'll probably return at some point and give them the benefit of a rare bad night.

The hamburgers were delicious. Our waitress was terrific, Taylor as I recall. She was attentive and very good at her job.

The server was the right mix of attentive without being annoying. She was really pleasant. The food was hot, there was enough snd it came out fast. Great experience.

Setting up the reservation online was so easy. I had to change the time & number in the group an hour or so before the actual reservation & they couldn’t have been more accommodating.
The table was ready when we arrived. So many choices on the menu. Our waitress Dynasty was so friendly & patient. We did not feel rushed at all. Will definitely be back!

Our server was very nice. She did a good job. Hostess staff was also very helpful. Food was also very good. We loved the fact that you can now make a reservation for the restaurant via Opentable. Very helpful.

When we arrived, there was quite a lot of people waiting to be seated. However, just before going there I went online to reserve a table, didn't think it would matter much but it did. They seated us immediately. Food took a little longer than expected and they messed up on one order (not enough to ruin dinner at all) but the manager came and was very apologetic and made things right. The food was good and overall experience was pretty darn good.

Weekend reservations are a must! We were seated immediately as about a dozen patrons were waiting. And I was even thanked for making a reservation!

Service is bad. We made a reservation one day in advance and still ended up waiting over half an hour for our table to be ready. Won't be going back to that place again.

Stopped in late on a Friday night. Happy to be able to book on Open Table!! Was glad to find that they were still serving. Our waiter was EXCELLENT!! Sorry, don't remember his name, I was really tired but he was so gracious & provided us w/fantastic service. Had the tuna app, delish! Next time will order my own & not share! The flatbread was so-so. We both had the 2 salmon choices, & they were perfectly cooked. Really tasty. Had a great bottle of Cab & it wasn't marked up 5X. My hubby had a really good beer on tap, & he loved it. Highly recommend!
