Crowded place for a pre-theatre dinner

We went here on a Wednesday at 5:30pm and it was crowded. I don't know if it was because everyone was eating here pre-Annie show (like us), but I couldn't believe it was crowded. (It is just diagona to the theatre and within walking distance). They have very good food. Nice kids menu with... read more

I'm not usually a fan of chain restaurants, but as chains go this is a great one. The design of the building is beautiful, open and full of natural light. The food is excellent and the service highly attentive. It does get busy around events, and I highly recommend reservations before shows and allowing yourself more time than you think... More

We had walked to town from Hersheypark to visit The Hershey Story museum and discovered that Houlihan's was located right next to the museum. We had been eating a lot of amusement park food and were ready for a nice, relaxing sit down dinner in the midst of the hectic pace that we had been keeping. Very nice atmosphere, good... More

We use to love this place. Went there during the week my daughter had recital practice and during recital. We also made trips on weekends to eat. The past few times we were there, service was slow, food over priced, and food wasn't always good or prepared correctly. We haven't been back since.

Town for the Mid-Cap swim event, had been there since early morning and as could be expected by our arrival around 3 , we were a hungry bunch. Our waiter Justin quickly took... More

It can get loud but s great food with full bar. Good service with descent prices. Sports in Ty's for those at the bar but not a distraction for diners. Glass wall lets you peek into the kitchen to glimpse behind the scenes.

As a local, my family and I come here very frequently. The menu is big, so there are always new things to try, and I've loved everything I've ever gotten there besides the ribs. My personal favorite is probably the chicken parmesan. The servers are always friendly and the restaurant itself is very nice without being excessively fancy. Just try... More
