We have had dinner here which was enjoyable however our lunch was average at best. Two of us had the french onion soup - delicious - but the sliders were poor. The other member of our family had tomato soup which was horrible. Service was almost non-existent, we had to search out our server to ask if the food order... More

I've been to Houlihan's a few times recently and have ordered the pot stickers to start and the Asian Chop Chop salad for my main. Last week I decided to order the pot stickers and salad with crispy chicken. The pot stickers tasted good but were burned. The salad was gross. Wilted, wet greens, chicken that was flavorless and had... More

Houlihan's has always been one of my favorite places to eat. Even after having gluten issues, Houlihan's hands down is one of the most gluten friendly corporate run restaurants. They do not have a separate kitchen which may be an issue for celiacs. I had a cheeseburger with a gluten free bun. It was delicious and I love the smokey... More

We sat in the bar and ordered small plates. Great food, price, and service. Chicken wings are awesome!

Recently took advantage of their free birthday meal offer. Great food and service. I always enjoy eating there. They also list gluten free items on their menu - another bonus.

I signed up with Houlihan's to receive their emails, and they have some really good deals. My husband really enjoyed their meatloaf. I had to taste it, too, and it really was very good. The waiter was also very helpful. I'm glad we made a reservation, because we were seated immediately. We will be going back.
