After a half dozen visits to this establishment, my dinner partner and I are convinced that the hostesses are instructed to profile certain customers into certain areas, That is, the young good looking folks front and center; handicapped, older, not one of the beautiful people waaaay in the back. Just our opinion!

We were there 9/19 for lunch. I found it no better than a Chilis. The location is very cool. The views of Hershey passing by was interesting. The food was just okay. Pretty plain really. I was hoping for more, so maybe my expectations color my views. However if the location and name recognition has you hoping for greatness you... More

Funny... I would not have thought that we would eat at Houlihans while visiting Hershey as I figured on a more authentic restaurant. However, this Houlihans is located in the front of the Hershey Press building and is nothing like your typical Houlihans. We sat outside and absolutely loved it. The inside of the restarurant was really nice as well... More

The food was good but not very good. The service was great. We met with relatives that we haven't seen in several years. It took awhile before we ordered and the waitress was very patient. The Ahi Tuna was cooked just right and the 3 pack sliders were average. We also ordered the Shrooms, which were large, chicken wings, marghireta... More

My wife and I felt like eating dinner at our BNB so we called in for take out. We had chicken parm and the buffalo blue salad. Both were delicious. We got utensils, fresh bread, napkins, etc. and attention was paid to details and presentation. Great job!

Just came back from this restaurant. Have not been to a houlihans since 1995 in GA. We thought we'd give it a try. The food was horrible with the exception of the fried calamari. How strange is it that a restaurant can produce excellent calamari ( not rubbery or stringy ) but fail miserably on every other food item ordered?... More

I had the hamburger sliders...bread was hard...burgers like cardboard....very disappointed.. We used to have a Houlihan's in our home town and they had gone out of business...so I had looked forward to going to Houlihan's while in Hershey, PA

Often crowded, but a sign of its popularity. Food is good, varied and well prepared. Really good blackened tuna salad. Calamari tasty but small portions. Daughter loves the mashed potatoes. Service has always been good but in busy times they do get stressed. Can get noisy. Clean environment. Parking easy, though front lot usually filled.

Visited Hershey for a few days the last week of August. Houlihan's was one of many restaurants on a list supplied by the hotel we stayed at. My husband suggested we try it. Glad he did! We checked out the menu online, and off we went. Houlihan's is located in downtown Hershey - The Hershey Story Museum is next door... More
