As I stated in my review, good food and a nice selection of drinks. Staff was friendly and helpful. Margheritas were very tasty, variety of tequilas.

After driving seven hours I was starving, and although I had never eaten here before I recognized the chain name from back home. We where greeted, and seated in the very back of the restaurant. No big deal. Our waiter was good, but the food was just okay. I order the Black Angus sliders, and french fries. The food it... More

The food is ok. Most of the veggies taste similar, which was bland. The appetizers are the best things on the menu besides the chicken sandwich or burgers. They have fair drink prices so it made the experience a little better. It was good customer service also.

They have an appetizer special, that is a good place to grab a drink. Good place if you need a quick stop.

Great drink specials for happy hour. Had a nice lunch and the breakfast buffet was good. Order the Shrooms for an appetizer. You won't be disappointed.

I ALWAYS search out local establishments when I travel. Houlihan's may be a chain but they are VERY local in regards to atmosphere, quality, clientele, and cuisine in Manhattan! I have dined at other Houlihan's in other cities and NONE compares. You can not go wrong with the Stuffed Herb Cheese Mushroom appetizer! DON'T miss the Scallops & Risotto for... More

This was our first night in Manhattan, restaurant wasn't busy & we were seated promptly. There seemed to be some confusion as to who our waiter would be. Finally after speaking amongst ourselves we were overheard & a server was sent over. I had a question as to the spiciness of the Thai chicken, the server couldn't answer the question... More

Houlihan's is freakishly convenient. It's right, right across the street from the main entrance to the university, and lots of departments put their visiting job applicants in the Holiday Inn that is attached to the restaurant. With that kind of convenience, Houlihan's doesn't actually have to be good to survive, but it is. The menu is surprisingly broad and has... More
