Last month I went out on a date to Houlihans and I was a little excited because I had never been an heard such great reviews about the place. My date and I arrived at about 8:30 pm and when we walked in there was a group of teenagers chatting with the hostess. It took her almost 4 minutes to even realize that we were there waiting. At that point I could begin to realize that the service was slacking a bit. After sitting down and ordering my chicken Alfredo, my date and I talked and talked and we noticed that our food was taking a long time. There were only 3 other guests besides us in the dining room yet our food took about 20 minutes (maybe more) to make its appearance. I must say that there was nothing special about my dish. I could go to Olive Garden to get better pasta and my garlic bread was a bit charred. Overall, the atmosphere in the restaurant was very nice but the service was slacking a bit. I have no desire to go back unless I'm accompanied by someone else who wants to go there. It seemed like the people at the bar were having a great time though. I'd recommend maybe going earlier than I did (8:30) maybe the staff won't be to relaxed and actually get things done in a timely manner.
