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

Dinner was fantastic. I had Thai Chicken and it was delicious. Place has a formal feel to it, but don't fear if you are dressed down. The hostess forgot my silverware setup so I had to ask but did not take away from the meal.

This place has a very varied menu! If you're planning to stick with the usual healthy meal, they have extremely healthy and nutritious salads. If you want chicken tenders, they have those too. I was actually shocked when the spinach dip came as it was presented very well and tasted equally as amazing. Everything on the menu is DELISH... it's... More

Had my birthday dinner here and really enjoyed it. Service was great. We love their almond crusted talapia and as usual it was wonderful! Their stuffed mushroom appetizer was really good also. Meal was not rushed and enjoyed eating here. Would come back when in the area.

A fun chain restaurant experience. Booth was comfortable (away from the door on a very cold night) and the food was fine. Service was a little spotty, but not enough to matter much.

The service is always mediocre. The hostesses always look lost and are not friendly. We always try to go there but are always disappointed at the service and food.

I visited this restaurant a couple of weeks ago with my husband, 4 yr old son with food allergies, my 3.5 month old and two adult friends. We all dine out together on a regular basis but had not been to Houlihan's. We went because my friend had a free meal for her birthday. I looked at the menu for... More
