Description: In 1972, Houlihan's first opened its doors in Kansas City with an eclectic menu and energetic bar scene. Ferns hung throughout, artifacts cluttered the walls, tapestries made by San Francisco hippies formed the ceiling. It was hot.Fast forward a few decades. New inspiration. New menus. New soundtrack. And a modern, warm restaurant design with a prominent bar. Today, our company is built entirely around what the progressive consumer seeks in a restaurant + bar experience.

My wife and I met 9 years ago on a blind date at this restaurant. We go back each year to celebrate our meeting. I even asked her to marry me over 6 years ago at this same Houlihan's. I visited the restaurant a few hours before our dinner and spoke with Lee, the manager. I told him our story... More

I was here late one night after our musical at school. The staff was able to accommodate a large group of students, and take care of all of us with care and patience. Food was awesome. I didn't have high hopes for this place, but I stand corrected. I was pleasantly surprised by this Houlihan's! We always pass by here... More

I went there with a few friends one night for dinner while on a business trip. I had the steak fajitas and they were pretty good! We were all satisfied with our food even though it took a little while to get but I guess it's because we were there during peak dinner time. The staff was friendly and helpful... More

I have raved and recommended this location to so many people for so many years. On February 20, 2014, I was so disappointed with my luncheon with some co-workers. The server seemed like she was dying. She seemed like she hated her job and didn't want to be taking care of us. Her name was Christie, by the way. I... More

Great place to get together with a big group of friends or family. They have open space where they can put several tables together to accommodate big parties. They will even take a reservation for a large party! Great food, drinks and service! Try the Asian Ribs they are killer! You can get them as an appetizer or as the... More

We visit this Houlihan's several times a month. I have to say that the prices are always reasonable and the food is good quality. Recommended.

They always had a beer waiting for me, because I did not want to sit in my room the whole time. Food was great and the beer was cold. That is all I care about. Enjoy this place.
