I expected more from this restaurant. I feel like it suffers from a split personality of some kind. It seems like it wants to be a fancy restaurant AND a sports bar and it fails at both. We've eaten in both sides and were disappointed in the meals. The restaurant side we had salads that were marginal at best, while... More

Our server seemed more like just an order taker and check delivery person. Everyone else walking by did fill our waters and remove dishes after bringing different stages of food. I was disappointed. It was my adult sons birthday, I really would have liked the service to have been on point. A drink and dessert would have been nice, we... More

I was quite surprised with the variety of items on the menu, it was hard to choose every thing sounded great. we started with a variety of appetizers, the fire cracker shrimp and spinach dip are awesome. we ordered the Kansas City Prime Burgers which were cooked to perfection, lean, hot & juicy. They have great drinks, especially the martini's.... More

I was really surprised with this place. The food is exceptionally good, in fact, the sandwich I had was so good here I am thinking of returning soon to have it again - which almost never happens with me. I love to try new places, so that is a good sign of good quality! I was happy with the menu,... More

I try to eat here when I visit Dallas as I love the salads and the fish tacos. Good appetizers and good service when I go.

The ambiance, attention, and food was great! I was skeptical about my choice of entrée initially because I don't like spicy food but went with the suggestion from my waiter and the Thai Chicken was off the charts. It had a hint of spicy which I tolerated fine but the spices and the sweetness was just the right combination and... More

I made a trip to visit family, and was told Houlihan's was a must!! The entire building was extremely noisy, could barely hear myself think! Our waiter Phillip was horrible. He did not greet when approaching the table, was not well versed on specials, nor did he ask if we wanted appetizers prior to ordering. He could definitely use some... More

Wasn't very hungry so ordered a side dish called Tuscan White Bean Salad that was both a delight to the eye and to the palate (and my wallet). Mostly marinated cannellini beans, layer with micro greens and balsamic marinated finely chopped tomatoes. They call this a salad but the greens were almost non-existent which was fine with me....delish, lots of... More

Grilled salmon was excellent! My wife really liked her Powergreens salad. Crispy chicken tenders were below average which dragged down my rating from 5 stars to 4 stars.

I came with a large group of 50 people. The food was fabulous and the wait staff was wonderful with arranging seating for all of us to sit either with or nearby each other in our large group. I had a few appetizers which were outstanding!
