We waited for quite a bit to get a table, then to eat. We were a group of 11 but it was still a considerable amount of time that we waited. The kids did not get their food first and when it did come the lettuce for the salads looked like they had passed their time. The server was nice... More

Houlihan's was exactly what we needed after a full day at Hershey park. The food was far better than expected and service was very good. We ordered a bunch of appetizers which our family really enjoyed.

There is a shared parking lot right next to this restaurant where we were able to easily find a close and free parking space on a fairly busy Sunday evening. Although the restaurant was busy, we were able to be seated in a booth near the bar right away. Although our table was near the bar, it did not feel... More

I really wasn't feeling it from our server Felt rushed. Asked for an extra garlic roll told me they were out, I know that was a lie. He gave us are check with out asking if we wanted desert. I had to tell him we wanted desert so he gave us one desert menu then rushes us for our order.

So the food was fine, typical, just what we expected. We had an early dinner on a Saturday (3:30/4:00). It was moderately busy - no wait. Our server was not friendly, spilled food onto the table while serving (more that once) without acknowledging it or cleaning it up). Two servers cleaning the table next to us, Wiped food onto the...

I have a gluten issue. I asked for a special menu, which they provided. One of the items I ordered from the special menu was not safe for me to eat. I mentioned to the server that my grandson and I couldn't have gluten, nor could our food be cross contaminated. It was. My grandson ended up sick from his... More

The food was very good, service was excellent. It was very crowded and very noisy and there appeared to be many people who came straight form Hershey Park for dinner. Unfortunately the gentleman at the table beside us was wearing a sweat soaked T shirt but no worries, he just rolled the shirt up to his arm pits so he... More

After preview night in Hershey Park, we wanted a casual meal where we could relax and eat outside. Houlihans was the perfect fit. The menu is comprehensive so we were all easily able to find something we wanted to eat. I ordered an app as a meal and it was still enormous. My daughter's children's meal would have satisfied any... More

We visited last Friday night, although it was busy, we were seated in the quoted time of 20 minutes. Brittany P was our server and she rocked. Great personality to really set the tone for what would be a great overall experience. We started with the calamari which arrived hot, crispy and delicous with two dipping sauces. For dinner, I...

We tried this out on our way to Chocolate World. Parking was ridiculous...not much of it nearby. Our server was great and on point in his communication with the kids and adults. Food was good if not great, but quickly served. The reason it gets 4 stars is their chocolate beer. Couldn't find it anywhere else and they said it... 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.
