We go to Houlihan's as often as we can. I love the seared ahi tuna appetizer as a meal. I top it off with the edamame and the pretzel bread sticks. Also the almond crusted talapia is a great choice and the small is a whole filet and plenty for a meal.

We went to have my husband's birthday free dinner. I had scallops and he had salmon. Service was good. His salmon was slightly overdone and my rice had too much oil but the scallops were perfect. My salad was wonderful. My daughter loved her pot roast mac n cheese.

I really enjoyed this lunch. I had to have the chicken tortilla soup as I really liked it at another Houlihan's recently. It was just as good this time. For my meal I had the chicken tenders, but was a bit hesitant as they sometimes are a bit rubbery in restaurants. My fears were unfounded, as they turned out to... More

We went to Houlihan's on a Tuesday evening, about 7:30 PM. We wanted salads. Our server appeared as expected and that was the last bit of normalcy. As we sat in the booth, they were sticky. The table top was OK at best but.. my hair stuck to the wood trim above the seats. You know, the wood trim in... More

The food is very good. The Chicken Parmesan is the best Chicken Parmesan I have ever had. However the food always takes about at least fifteen minutes or longer. The reason is because they do have a kitchen and they make all the food themselves. So it's quality over how fast everything is, but if you are really hungry don't... More

Crystal, our server, on Wednesday, Jan 22, 2014, was terrific. Very attentive, made suggestions, knew the menu and was able to describe anything we asked about. She made it a very enjoyable experience.

Been there 3 times. The first time it was Ok. Nothing to brag about, nothing special. The last two times just terrible service, They staff acts like they are doing you a favor. I was looking for the manager to let them know, but they were no where to be found. When I did see a manager one was being... More

Great place for a leisurely lunch at a reasonable price. Wait staff is generally friendly. Fairly good selection of food, and there is rarely a long wait time.

Good menu options. Big drink menu but I always just get a glass of wine. Not alot of variety in the white wine by the glass, but it's food friendly and drinkable. Menu has a variety of selections and they have a small plate option for those who aren't very hungry. Usually, not a long wait at 6 or so... More
