This restaurant has the potential to stand out, but is undermined by its' youthful, inattentive staff. We decided "Irish pub, St. Patrick's, let's give it a shot". The young waiter was friendly enough, but paid scant attention to our order. While my requested rare cheeseburger was (unfortunately) overcooking, he was engaged with three waitresses in conversation near the entrance. Once... More

Came here after the movies one night. Was greeted pleasantly at the front door by the hostess and seated promptly. We shared the cubano eggrolls and we each ordered the fish tacos. No complaints about the food. While the food was enjoyable it wasn't exceptionable. I would put it in the same category as Applebee's, Friday's, and Ruby Tuesday. Average... More

We had a decent meal here. The food was fairly standard but, nothing was below par. The server was efficient and friendly. We were sitting towards the back and it was a little quiet and dark.

Finally... no need to go to the airport to pay airport prices for drinks. I don't always know when my kids projects are due, but when I do, you can guarantee it's tomorrow. Drink up my friends.

Service was sketchy and laxidaisical. When not bringing items to customers, staff is sitting in the restaurant fumbling on cell phone. Nowhere in sight of table, but up front where people walk in. Despicable, to me. Maybe not to everyone.

I've been eating at Houlihan's for years. I've traveled all the way to New Brunswick for the food and atmosphere. I'm so glad I moved close to this one. There is nothing on the menu I don't like! Can't say enough about the lettuce wraps and the nachos!!

Our meal was good tasting and a good value. We each had a burger. The Kansas Burger was large and tasty. The turkey burger was flavorful and moist. The atmosphere was good for families, couples or business. Staff was very friendly

We were there the evening before Halloween, so all the servers were dressed in costume. A very enjoyable visit, excellent food, and a great location.

Very good coffee.love the food. one of their staff was very over familiar, running his fingers through my hair and feeling my skin. That's the only thing that bothered me. Aside from that it's a very nice place.

I've eaten at various Houlihan's around the country. They have all been good. This one was interesting because the hostess was trying to find me a seat when it wasn't crowded at all. I heard her tell one waiter that no one in the bar area wanted to wait on me. It was kind of comical. I wasn't offended. We... More

Description
Forget 'casual dining.' That's an industry term so out of touch with how consumers eat and drink today. For premium quality and style; fare that's at times familiar and other times adventurous and a laid-back modern setting, Houlihan's is a true original.
