Our waiter was fantastic and the venue was pleasant enough. Three of us shared two appetizers (potstickers and a guacamole/pineapple dip with chips combo), followed by salads and a main course. I asked the waiter to delay taking our salad and main course orders until we had finished the appetizer but he ignored me. Soon, our appetizers arrived. Unfortunately, we... More

A friend chose this restaurant for her birthday lunch. Not sure why, other than it was a convenient location. How I ended up spending almost $55 for lunch for a burger & fries, fish and chips, and 2 desserts is beyond me. Nice interior, obviously spiffed up from the Houlihan's from the 1970s, but everything else is lacking. There are... More

Nothing special about the Asian salad, it was like any other, but the squash lasagne was very tasty and the zucchini pasta salad is a stand alone. It was delicious! We tried the lobster corny dog. Too much corn and too little lobster.. Good try though for something unusual. The place is loud and boisterous but we had a great... More

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
