Forget 'casual dining.' That's an industry term so out of touch with how consumers eat and drink today. For premium quality and style; fare that's at times familiar and other times adventurous and a laid-back modern setting, Houlihan's is a true original.

Kitchen's timing is off...

My husband and I love eating at Houlihan's and do so frequently. We've never had a bad meal. However, recently we've encountered some timing issues. The past 2 times we've been to Houlihan's we received our entrée before we were even half way finished with our soup. So, we finish our soup and... read more

Excellent food, excellent service, my only complain is there usually a wait especially if you are coming here with a group and especially over the summer. Me and my family typically come in late august to Hershey to try and avoid the chaos.

To tell the truth I went to Houlihan's because my wife was away and I had a $10 coupon. I was hungry so I order a full rack of ribs with the extra fried shrimp. Both the rack of ribs and the fried shrimp were excellent. I thoroughly enjoyed my meal and I look forward to going back again, but... More

Good food with a modern atmosphere but on the loud side. It's a very large place and always packed so if your looking for a quiet sit down this is not the place. The food was an 8/10. We had the French dip sandwiches with fries and the dipping sauce was the best we've had. The server was not the... More

Houlihan's is somewhere between fine dining and bar and we love it. While the menu doesn't change much, what is on it is always executed well and offered in different portions which we love.

I just wanted to say that being a local to the area for some reason this was our first visit to Houlihan's. We eat out often and can honestly say that we have never experienced the exceptional service and wonderfully tasteful food and that's saying a lot because my husband took me to what's known as a very expensive steak...

This was our first time in Houlihan's and I have to say than after waiting an hour to get a seat it was worth every minute of it. The staff was so professional and very friendly. The food was delicious and when it came to order a gluten free meal for our son they were very helpful. We liked so... More

Food is great - it is a different menu that a regular rest.I compare it to a California style rest.Prices are reasonable & the appetizers are worth getting. Service is great. Is a more casual place compared to Devon's which is in the same building.

The food is good and the atmosphere is great. The servers could have been a little friendlier and attentive.

We got in very quickly on a busy Saturday afternoon. Seemed like we just beat the evening crowd by getting there just before 5PM. Our server was very nice, but she only helped me during our dinner. She didn't refill my husbands drink until he had to ask her to and she refilled mine 3 times without me ever asking.... More
