Houlihan's is a chain that thinks too highly of itself. We have have been there 3 times and they have struck out. When you walk in you notice a nice modern design with the lights at a very low level, only when we went during the day could we adequately see around the restaurant. The cool factor does not make...

The bar here is the centerpiece, but if you don't drink, it can get really crowded and loud. The food is usually an experience and a good one. We had a new salad with rice noodles and sirloin which was very unusual--basil, cilantro, chili lime dressing--they failed to mention jalepenos, but the overall flavor was really good, just a big...

Overall the food is very good. But I go there especially for the meatloaf, it's fantastic. They have a very nice bar and a very nice outdoors scene especially when it's not too hot.

We really like the décor of the restaurant but find the food selection to be somewhat limited and prices too high.

This restaurant stands out from the rest. The food is excellent and unique, no matter what I've tried. Great atmosphere to sit and talk for a while. Comfy booths. Classy but not dressy.

I have visited this restaurant several times and have always enjoyed their variety of food and drinks. Outdoor patio is great even in the winter with a large fire pit to warm your bones. Drinks can be a bit pricey but are all unique and flavorful--eg., Blackberry Rita, Raspberry Mojito...etc. Appetizers are great, recommend the stuffed mushrooms--yummy. Parmesan Frites are... More

Great place with awesome pulled pork sliders...adding the fried pickle spear is greatness. Everything I've tried has been great. Great low cal goat cheese chicken salad option. Pot roast, burgers, chicken sandwiches, steak are all great. Love the small portion options for those watching their weight. For those that aren't their carrot cake dessert is rich and delicious.

Not really sure how to rate a Restaurant with Good Food, OK Service so low, but their prices are NOT commensurate to the Quality, OR, the Overall Quality & Quantity is NOT commensurate with the Cost. And it darn sure is TOO Noisy!

i have a group of friends who love this place, but I've never seen the draw. It's overpriced- they email coupon specials all the time, but I'd rather get better prices without coupons or even pay more and go someplace else! I recently found Brooklyn's in the same Firewheel Mall area and it's top notch- great salads, pizza and desserts.... More

Stopped by to cash in the free entree for my wife's birthday. We both had the tilapia and it was very tasty and well positioned. We had to remind our waiter about the discount even after providing the code from the text message they sent us. The check was dropped off before we were half way through our meal. We... More
