“Awesome, Fresh Food and Helpful Service”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 17, 2013

I've eaten at Houlihan's before but this time was exceptional. The food was fresh and flavorful and our server (Erika?) was very knowledgeable about the menu. My husband has food allergies and what she didn't know she took the time to find out from the chef. His steak did come out a little undercooked but it was returned to us perfect and she did it all with a courtesy and humor that isn't always found in a waitresses The drinks from the bar were delicious (I love the strawberry basil drink). We will deffinantly be back and if it impresses me as much as it did this last visit I see it quickly becoming one of our regular places.

“Apps are plenty”

The selection of appetizers is huge and wonderful. We eat there as often as we are able. No heavy dinners, just light food, cold drinks & great service.

“average food..high prices”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 3, 2013

I had the pork tenderloin sandwich for lunch which was really dry but had a good tomato on it..my friend had the creekstone farm angus burger and when she cut it in half to eat it blood came running out...the waitress looked at the burger and was grossed out and took it back to cook another one.When she brought it back it was the same but back together with new cheese and toppings on it ..kinda strange I thought but at lest it was cooked right even though it was hard to eat being all cut up..manager made it good with coupon for free entrée in 30 days though I probably will not be back in town in that time

Thank you for your comments. We strive to serve perfect food every time. I am so sorry that it took us twice to get yours right.

If you are not able to make it by the expiration date on the card, don't worry. Just tell them that Kevin said you could extend the date and we will be happy to take care of you.

Hope to see you soon.

“Enjoyed the food and service”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 18, 2013 via mobile

We had a late lunch with a large group. Highly recommend the rustic tomato soup with garlic cheese fritters. Pork slider was excellent and they serve different versions of fries. Even with a large group of 17, service was quick and attentive. Drink glasses were never empty!

“Great for lunch or after work drinks!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 10, 2013

This is relatively close to our office so we visit here about once every other month for lunch, but much more frequently after work for their wonderful happy hour specials. They have a wide variety of delicious long island teas and the chicken nachos are HUGE and delicious. Perfect for sharing. They have a nice outdoor area which is perfect in good weather.
