Didn't feel like a chain restaurant at all

Houlihan's was a chain we'd always wanted to visit, but never had until our recent trip to Hershey. Maybe it was the fact its inside a historic building, but it didn't feel like it was a chain restaurant at all. The food was tasty, and portion sizes were adequate but not excessive. I had the Wedge... read more

Since we had just arrived and was visiting Chocolate World, we decided to have dinner with the kids. Food and service was very good as was service.

Both of the Houlihan's in my local area have closed, and I never remember anything truly outstanding about either of them. However, after spending numerous hours touring Hershey, all I wanted was a good sandwich and a COLD beer. This place really surprised me. The burger was excellent and they also offered a few local beers on tap that were... More

We visited Houlihan's for lunch. It was pretty busy but we were seated promptly. The staff courteous and helpful. We ordered the fish tacos from the lunch menu. They were very good. I also ordered the tortilla soup. It was served hot and had a kick to it. My husband ordered a salad. The ingredients were fresh and it was... More

Have been going to this location since they opened. Love the food here. My favorites are the Thai chilli wings, socal fish tacos, and Aisian chop chop salad. But almost everthing is good. Most servers r terrific too. Try the straberry basil lemonade (now off menu but they will make it if you ask). We r here fairly often. Can... More

Have always been a fan of the chain. The location in Hershey is closest to my home at 80 miles away. Whenever in Hershey I go to his location. The service and atmosphere are always excellent. The food on this most recent trip was top quality as always. I had the chicken tenders -buffalo style. They were meaty and flavorful.... More

Went there on a Saturday evening. Typical wait time of 1/2 an hour. Maybe more. However, as you looked around the restaurant there were empty tables. Understaffed? I'm not sure. There was a high top in the bar area I asked about and the servers said that those were not open seating. An half hour later, when I was seated,... More

We arrived for lunch at about 1:15 pm. We didn't think about the fact that it was graduation day for the local school. The dining room was full, but we must have arrived at a good time as we only had to wait 3 minutes for a table for 2. The server was very pleasant and attentive. The food was... More

Went here with a group following a graduation, so was feeling festive and looking forward to a memorable meal. Didn't quite get there. Nothing was wrong, it just failed to be live up to my high expectations for the day. We were seated outdoors promptly on a warm, humid day. Service was a bit too slow for my liking in... More
