Dinner was wonderful. Everyone came in soaking wet and freezing wrapped in blankets. Houlihans got our order quickly and all six children enjoyed their meals without complaints. It's a great restaurant not too far from Hershey Park. It's a bit tricky to get there because of the location, it's on a corner, one way street.

Listen, this is a chain restaurant. Food is good, atmosphere is good, service is consistently pleasant. But, for crying out loud, clean the bathrooms and make them bigger. They are consistently disgusting and one urinal for a restaurant that size, where people drink is ridiculous! Enough with this rant. It's still a good restaurant.

Our server was kind and attentive. The food was servered in a very reasonable amount of time and was absolutley awesome! Did I say how awesome the food was? I... More

Many restaurants are closed on Sundays so we went to Houlihan's. This one was newer with a slightly different menu than we know. The food was good. When my daughter's kid pasta was a little hard, the waiter brought her a fresh plate without skipping a beat. Good local beers on tap, too.

My husband and I had never been to a Houlihan's before. The service was good and we thought the prices were reasonable. The stuffed mushrooms on the appetizer menu were so good! My husband said he had never had such good mushrooms. Like I mentioned, we've never been to this chain before. Maybe all the restaurants aren't as nice, but... More

We visited here on a Thursday night in late June while in town for a trip to Hershey Park. The restaurant is located pretty much right behind the park, so it was convenient. Parking was a bit of an issue as the lot outside is a pretty tight fit, but there is an attached garage also. The four of us... More

We arrived at 4:30pm on a Sunday, and asked to be seated outside with our two young children. We sat for 10 minutes and no one approached the table. We asked who our server was? We asked the hostess that seated us to get a server. Finally, we went and got one of the managers, who tried to remember our... More

This place better get a refurbishment. It is Gross. It stinks from the floor to the Bar. When we left we saw crud and trash on floor right behind our booth. My wife's Yankee Pot Roast was dry. The smell was AWFUL.
