The atmosphere of the restaurant is okay; comfortable but nothing unique or special. The service was very attentive and friendly. The seating was comfortable and not crowded with other tables. The menu selection is okay but the prices are on the higher side. The wine selection is good. My steak had flavour and was tender but Was nothing special. This... More

This restaurant is all decorated up. I guess they are appealing to the Generation X crowd. The original mission concept of Houlihan's as an Irish Pub has been obliterated. Stopping by on a Friday around 3:30 PM the place is empty, but it took a while for our server to appear. Our server was a feisty middle age lady and... More

I like the stuffed chicken meal at this restaurant and the mango tea is great. On our last visit, they were out of the mango syrup for the tea so I tried the lemonade. It was OK but the raspberry lemonade was really good, so I switched to that. Service was kind of slow this time but on other visits... More

They offer a flight of 3 martinis for $10. Can't go wrong. Also on Thursday they offer Lobster and steak for $22. What a deal. Great place to hang out and enjoy a drink and snack.

This is a very good restaurant with good service. The few menu items I have eaten were good. My wife and I love their calamari appetizer.

The food is very good, but very rich and heavy for the most part. Salads are large, fresh and filing. Our favorite heavy meal is the stuffed chicken breast and loaded mashed potatoes. VERY good. We go often and enjoy it there. The patio is nice when the weather is nice. The service is always good and it's always busy.... More

Great friendly customer service and appetizers. Martini flights were so delicious. Need to try the goat cheese bites. Yummy. Hibiscus Martinis and lemon drops Martinis are just a few on the menu.

I had a great burger cooked how I like it and the wife had pot roast. We also had a side of MAC n CHEESE which was really well done. This place has been in business for several years now and the parking lot is always packed. Somehow I doubt the bad reviews being posted here are anything but nit-picks.... More

Houlihan's is a great chain restaurant and conveniently located near several military bases in sunny San Antonio -- so a great happy hour location. Celebrated a birthday last night and Emily was an excellent, attentive waitress to our 20+ size group, with plenty of food, drink orders we kept her hopping! We loved the variety of appetizers and believe our... More

Our famly came for my son's birthday, hoping to enjoy a nice dinner. We had 7 total in our party. Two people ordered salad/soup before dinner. The salad came out quickly and the soup perhaps three minutes later. Dinners started arriving afterwards, one plate at a time. My wife's 80 year old grandmother was the last to be served, about...
