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

Fair beer/drink selection; appetizers were excellent; loved the shrimp and the "shrooms"! I had Korean chicken for dinner, which was very good; my friends said their burgers were good, and Alfredo was fair...we were too full for dessert. Overall, a very nice experience.

Had lunch there with 6 other family members today. Not, repeat, NOT impressed. The wait staff, although personable, were not the quickest. I had to ask 3 times for a side of mayo. When my food did FINALLY arrive it was, at best, warm. Normally, after seeing the motion picture "Waiting", I never send food back. However, in this case,... More

I'm pretty sure the food would have been good if it had been hot. We were served appetizers and were told that they were out of utensils, but somebody would be over with them in a minute. It took longer. Then our dinners were also lukewarm. The food had a good flavor, but I like my food hot!!!

Stopped in for Dinner while travelling through the area. We've always enjoyed Houlihan's, but the locations near our home have all gone out of business. The food was good as remembered and service was prompt and friendly. Parking was sufficient for a weeknight, but I can see how it would get crowded during busier times.

Ample parking/garage. Good food. Usually a bit of a wait being close to the Park. Bar seating available for eating. I prefer going for lunch when in the area, less crowded.

My wife and I eat lunch at Houlihan's every week. The lunch specials, not available after 5 pm, are the best, pricewise as well as quality-wise. I would give 5 stars if the dinner menu prices weren't so high.

Average food and average drinks, my staff purchase me a gift card, back of card specifically states "no service charges". Guess what? Gift card not honored even with the activation and purchase receipt. Buyer beware

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.
