“Good location for a girls night out”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 11, 2013

I met a group of former colleagues here for a girls night out. I hadn't been in years and had forgotten how good it is. The service was a little slow but given that we had a party of 10 and we all arrived at different times it was understandable. I ordered fish tacos and a glass of wine. The food was delicious and they have a good wine list. The atmosphere is very relaxed which made for a nice evening of catching up with friends.

“Small plates = Small service”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 15, 2013

Okay, so we stopped between lunch and dinner rush to get a tapas style meal: a bunch of appetizers to share with friends. Odds that the place was so quiet, but the service was so slow. The food we received was pretty good. But part of the fun of dining out is not stressing about drink or food orders.

“Poor service and cold food”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 12, 2012

Visited this Houlihans because they emailed me a $15 off coupon. We have eaten here before and normally the food and service are pretty good. On this occasion, our server was "obsessed" with another table near us and spent nearly all of his time there. I actually counted the visits to this table and they outnumbered us 15-3 at one point (and I stopped counting) - plus he had the manager over there part of the time delivering more things to them. At our table, he took our order, brought our cold food (not doubt sitting in the kitchen while he was at the other table) and brought our check - that's it. Very poor overall experience.

“Not Impressed”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 15, 2012

This was our first visit to Hoolihans. The place was Very modern and very clean. The Menu had many interesting selections. However, neither my son or I liked our food, the roasted chicken was dry but the skin was crispy and good, we got desert thinking a nice place like this has to have god food. The Creme Burlee I had, the sugar was over toasted, and My sons, Brownie Sunday, The brownie was like a brick. Maybe we caught them on a bad day, but we wont be returning
