For a chain restaurant the food here it's always good. The staff isn't always the most professional lots of side conversations not quite quiet enough. With that being said our waitress was very polite! My boyfriend and I love eating there when in the area

Let me say off the bat we had a great server, she was very friendly and knew the menu well. We came here after a busy morning walking around Hershey Gardens with our 2 year old and we were all starving. The host wasn't very friendly but provided crayons and a kids menu so I just chalked it up to... More

If you want to get into Houlihans, get there early or call ahead. They are always busy even mid week! They are one of the most popular places in town. I enjoyed a meal with friends. We started with the pretzel dipping app which my friend loved, I was neutral about. I enjoyed a Thai style chicken dinner with brown... More

The food is what you would expect; OK but not great. Go if you must but hope for a wait person that is skilled at their job. Why the chains split up the areas that a wait person is responsible for is unknown to us. We see it all the time and it almost guarantees poor service as you wait... More

My husband and I have eaten at Houlihan's about 6 times so far and loved it each time. I will say that we've never been there in the evening...only in the afternoon. We order from the dinner menu because we usually have our main meal earlier in the day, and it's less crowded and quieter at that time. Their filet... More

I have been to Houlihan's frequently and always enjoy the lunch menu! Lots of options including a very nice combo of soup or salad with sandwich or salad. Was there yesterday and Larissa was our waitress. She was friendly and efficient but gave my friend and me lots of time to catch up. Very pleasant meal both in quality and... More

There was at least an hour wait on Saturday and Sunday night. On the good side, they do have a bar. The food is good. The atmosphere is fun, but the wait is long.

My favorite place to go for small plates and things other than seafood - go to Devon next door for that. The servers are always pleasant and service is usually quick.

First off, I'l say it wasn't easy finding a parking spot and the wait was very long (about 35-40 minutes). It was a Friday night, so we did anticipate a wait. Once we were seated, the service was great and the food superb. I had the salmon special which was excellent. I would definitely go back.
