Crab cakes and scallops delicious. Brownie desert - to... More

Every Friday is Houlihans nite for my girlfriend and I. We are a meat and potatoe couple so go for the prime rib special that is only available Friday, Saturday and Sunday. I have never had a prime rib as good as Houlihans. Always cooked the way we like it. The mashed potatoes are creamy and fresh. The tuna sushi... More

I normally enjoy Houlihan's, but I wound up sitting at the bar after midnight listening to a very loud, obnoxious, expletive laced conversation. The bartender must have known I was upset because my meal got comped...but it doesn't excuse the behavior that was allowed.

It was a busy (Saturday) night, but we still got attentive service and great food. Occasionally our drinks would run empty, but not for too long. The noise level was high, and the wait ended up being slightly longer than estimated, but this the most I can say in a negative light. On the plus side, the food was excellent... More

While on business to the area, Houlihan's was recommended to us. What a great choice. Their menu is very extensive and everything sounded delicious so it was hard to make a choice. Since we weren't real hungry we decided to order a variety of appetizers. The presentation of the food on the plates were beautiful and the food was wonderful.... More
