This restaurant is within walking distance of most hotels in Harmon Meadow Plaza, which by the way is a lovely, rather peaceful respite after a day in Manhattan. We were seated quickly and had an excellent waiter. Food was prepared well and was an enjoyable gathering with friends and family. Menu had a good variety of choices, but could have... More

Went to this restaurant because it was close to our hotel. Drinks were awesome and the food was good and inexpensive. Chicken strips were great and love the atmosphere.

Decided to go to Houlihans because we could walk from the hotel. So glad we did. My husband had the early bird special pot roast and thought it was great. Came with a large salad and a dessert. All were very good and the dinner portion was more than he could finish. I had the scallops with the risotto and... More

The service and the ambience were good. I went to watch a soccer game there. The TV s were big and clear to see from wherever. The food and beer were great as well specially the Chicken Strips in Thai sauce is to die for.

I had the pot roast, which was very chewy. I had to find the fountain drink machine to refill my own drink though. Waiter just never came around.

This was a nice place to eat but recently started to change. We ordered food and when it arrived, the potatoes were cold on both dishes. The chicken I had was warm but not hot. I felt rushed in ordering and eating.

Here you can go for dinner until 1 am. The service is excellent, the seating cozy. The food is good for the price and there is a big selection for drinks (huge beer-selection on draft). A very nice place to have dinner.

Very family friendly restaurant. We ate at the bar, great service from our server. I ordered a grilled chicken chipotle wrap with a side order of Caesar salad and our server suggested a half wrap, with the Caesar salad and a choice of a side dish. Excellent suggestion. All very delicious. My husband and I shared the chips and salsa... More
