My husband and I ate here before a concert at the Hershey Theater on a weeknight. We planned to get here early to avoid a wait. We were seated right away at 5pm. Appetizer and meals were just okay. Waitress was really nice. We had a few drinks at the bar when we were done eating. The place did really... More

Houlihan's is a great place to go for lunch, whether it's with friends or for business. Their food is very good and reasonably priced to boot! I'd recommend to anyone in the area.

I am not crazy about chain restaurants. This is a typical Houlihan's chain, You need reservations for there is always a waiting list. Usually a lot of kids, but the bar crowd is also there. there is limited outside seating set up rather than on the busy seat.off the busy street. If you have been to a Houlihan's then you... More

This is a bustling kinda sports bar on a busy corner in downtown Hershey. The food was tasty and abundant. I had the stuffed chicken breast and my wife had the butternut squash lasagna. I would recommend both. Our waitress was friendly and attentive, she did rush us a bit with paying the bill, which came while we were having... More

I've eaten at Houlihan's a few times. It's one of the nicer chain restaurants in the area. I had the scallops, with risotto and arugula. The scallops were nicely browned and not over cooked. The arugula was fresh, and the risotto was tasty. My son enjoyed his steak. I've eaten there a few times. It's always good but not amazing.

Steaks the size of a Hockey Puck, cold baked potatoes, and its LOUD inside. Dinner for two $50 before tip and beverages. Nice downtown historic location with ez parking, but just not worth the money. Other choices with several miles offer a better experience

We had drinks and snacks here after work. This is a fun atmosphere and the service was great. Parking was free and convenient. This is a chain so I'm sure the menu is pretty standard.

We have gone many times, being locals, as I have to say that recently, the logistics of the operations has declined. Especially on busy days and nights in hershey, with concerts or PIAA events, this place gets overwhelmed despite having enough tables and staff to handle more volume. As example, when we last went, there were about 40 people waiting,... More

Good food and service. Decent beer and wine selection. Fish and fries were great. Convenient parking and fair price.

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.
