Description: In 1972, Houlihan's first opened its doors in Kansas City with an eclectic menu and energetic bar scene. Ferns hung throughout, artifacts cluttered the walls, tapestries made by San Francisco hippies formed the ceiling. It was hot.Fast forward a few decades. New inspiration. New menus. New soundtrack. And a modern, warm restaurant design with a prominent bar. Today, our company is built entirely around what the progressive consumer seeks in a restaurant + bar experience.

“Good service and tasty food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 15, 2013 via mobile

Originally intended to try the Mexican place next to Houlihans but that place was packed. The bar area was pretty busy. Bartenders were attentive. The food was pretty good and came at a good pace.. Exceeded my expectations as I never have had much luck with this chain.

“Great food, great prices, great food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 3, 2012

This was my first time here and I have nothing but wonderful things to say about it.All of the food was delicious and cooked perfectly. The server was attentive and knowledgeable. I would definitely.go back again.I generally do not like chain restaurants because the food is usually sub par, but the food here was exceptional. A manager stopped by every table to ask how everything was which i liked because it showed that the restaurant cares about their customers.

Highly recommended!!!!!
