One of few restaraunts open in Blizzard!

Being a chain restaurant, Houlihan's was predictable. French onion soup was very good. Other appetizers were filling but nothing special. Server was delightful and took her time to be sure we were well taken care of. She had already worked a full shift at the local hospital! We were grateful... read more

Dinner at Houlihans...always a treat. With great bar and small plates, to fine dinners, always enjoyed fireside in winter or on the deck in summer. Very friendly staff and great service!

Ordered a take out. Great Salad. Other member of the party had the Salmon BLT; healthy. This Hershey location did everything right. Packaging of take out was unique.

We got to Hershey prior to our check in time for The Hotel Hershey and hit Houlihan's for lunch. It was terrific with a very broad menu, lots of choices. We had the soft pretzel appetizer as well as the chicken lettuce wraps. They were both fresh and very tasty. Our server was very attentive and friendly. He was eager... More

Food was delicious. Had a couple items of their seasonal menu and enjoyed them. Filet was a little undercooked. Service with a smile was a little lacking. Overall recommend.

This was the worst Houlihan's I have ever been to. The food was disgusting. I got chicken fingers and fries and the chicken tasted like it was deep fried in dirty dish soap/water. Absolutely disgusting. The wait was so long and the food was not up to par. The service was super slow and our waitress was rude to us.

We went here for my father's 85th birthday. We were a group of 14 people. They do not take reservations. We arrived around 4:45pm for dinner and had an hour and fifteen minute wait to be seated. The waitress was pleasant but not sociable and she did not refill our drinks, nor did she ask if anyone would like coffee... More

We enjoyed dinner and a drink with family in from out of town. Service and food was good as usual. They were crowded as usual but we were seated quickly and enjoyed ourselves.

We had eaten here a while back on our last time through Hershey and were generally pleased with the food and service. This time out was completely different. We stopped by for lunch on Saturday around 1:00; the place was fairly packed but the hostess was able to show us a table for two right away. We were in the... More
