Great ffod and service!

We had a great dining experience at Houlihan's which is connected to the Holiday Inn Manhattan at the Campus. The stuffed mushroom appetizer is fantastic! Our main dishes were outstanding and the service was terrific! Thank you, Rachel for taking care of us!

We like eating here. because the staff is friendly. The portions are huge and you do get your money's worth. We love getting the shrooms (huge and delicious) and calamari. The restaurant is attached to a hotel and located right across from Kansas State University. If you are bringing a large group of folks (8+), please call ahead and let... More

We stopped in for lunch while visiting K State. We were greeted & seated immediately. If you have ever been to a restaurant that tries to act upscale but isn't, that was my impression, especially from our server. I ordered a burger & she looked down her nose at me the rest of the meal. I wanted to remind her... More

As soon as we were walking up to the door we were greeted by a staff member as they held the door open for us to walk in. We were seated immediately. They were showing the world cup at the time but i just asked the bar tender, to turn it on and he did. We talked with our server... More

Our party of three dined at Houlihan's twice over the past few weeks. On both occasions the server brought our entrees and set them on the table while we had barely started on our salads. We were given the choice of letting the entrees get cold while finishing the salads, or putting aside the salad and eating the entree. Definitely... More

You want a place that has excellent staff and a good menu, this is the place to go. Every single time I go here, whether with friends or visiting family, the staff is excellent. They are friendly, quick, conversational if you so choose to have a convo, and make you feel very welcome, especially to those visiting town. Houlihan's is... More

We stopped here for breakfast while staying at the attached Holiday Inn. They had a basic buffet, with eggs, potatoes, bacon, sausage, biscuits and gravy, cereal, fruit, and pastries. We were very pleasantly surprised at the price: $9.99 each. The food was good, and our server extremely friendly.

Ate here for dinner again, 2 years after our original visit. We arrived at a busy time as the KState basketball game had ended a short time earlier. The restaurant was croweded but we were seated quickly. We started with an appetizer of the "famous shrooms" which were very large and tasty. Our dinners were very good and the portions... More

We were in town early on New Year's Eve for an appointment and while in town opted to have our New Year's Eve dinner at Houlihan's. They were wise enough to offer their evening specials all day that day, and we had a wonderful three courses with perfect service. The stuffed mushrooms were a delight, I had a filet and... More

Even though this location let go one of the best managers that has ever been at this location, which is just terrible. I still enjoy the food and drinks at this restaurant.
