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

Then we waited another 15 minutes or more for our order to be taken. The... More

Even though it was a Wednesday night, the place was PACKED, and we were told we'd have around a 30 minute wait, but we actually only had to wait 5-10 minutes, which was nice. The restaurant itself is very nice. It has a nice atmosphere. The only thing was that we were sitting near the bar AND the door to... More

Large Houlihan's clean and well kept. Is in the old Hershey Press building which is very nice. Wait staff was OK, food was very good for a chain.

We ate here for lunch one afternoon while visiting Hershey Park. We sat at the bar. I apologize but I do not remember the bartender's name but she was very nice and informative. I do remember her saying that her entire family works for Hershey. This bar is owned by Hershey. We ordered the margharite pizza and a meat pizza... More

Told a 45 minute wait, but it was less than 20! Our server was excellent, suggested his favorites and we went with it! Stuffed chicken and fish tacos... Both great!

My parents reside in Hershey so I get to Houlihan's quite often. The prices are what you would expect for a tourist location but the actual food is far better than most other choices in Hershey. As an added benefit if you are new to town you can park in the garage next to Houlihan's, get something to eat and... More

Stopped in for Dinner before the park. We sat outside, and got to look at the beautiful flowers and the Hershey Kiss street lights. Our server was great and gave us some hints about the park. 5 meals, and a few adult beverages , I was expecting a $100.00 check, I was pleasantly surprised when it came to $60.00. Will... More
