Good food, good atmosphere, great wait staff!

Met another couple here for dinner and really enjoyed ourselves. We were seated on the patio. We started out with some appetizers, steamed edamame, and some drinks, long island ice tea and mini martinis. All were very good. We wound up having soup for dinner, French onion, which was tasty, not... read more

This is a run of the mill, average chain restaurant. Nothing on the menu was bad, but nothing was spectacular either. The burger was overcooked, despite asking for it to be cooked medium. The waitstaff is really slow, so you will not be able to get in and out very quickly. If you are staying at a nearby hotel, they... More

Our dinner at Houlihan's this past Sunday evening was extremely good. From the mushroom appetizer, the steaks, and into desserts, we were very pleased with the food. Even better than the food was the service. I intended to note our server's name so that I could give her extra kuddos, but I forgot to do that before we left. I... More

This restaurant was a brief walk from our hotel, so an easy choice. I have eaten at several Houlihan's. This one did not disappoint. We were welcomed and promptly seated. Server was attentive. They have some fun drink options; we tried the mojito flights. I believe Houlihan's offers a nice, varied menu with something for everyone.

wow has that place gone down hill! We sat in the bar area thinking it might be faster. It wasn't. The couple at the bar were so drunk and loud that I couldn't even finish my meal. The guy started playing loud obnoxious music on his phone. When I asked our waiter if he could say something, he told me... More

Great food and service. My wife and I have eaten here several times and it has always been very good with excellent service. We usually eat lunch and have not tried dinner there but have no reason to think it would be any different.

We eat at this restaurant about once a week and we always receive great service and great food. The female manager is awesome and most of the staff knows us by now. The salmon is always yummy and the hubby swears by the Brentwood chicken sandwich. Keep up the great work!!
