“Nice lunch - quick service”
Reviewed May 29, 2014

I had lunch with business friends at Houlihan's and found it to be a very good lunch spot. The parking was easy, seating was quick and the service was fast. I had the Buffalo Blue Salad and it was an excellent lunch choice. The chicken was moist with a great spicy "buffalo" flavor.

The salad greens were real fresh and crisp. This is a tasty choice, a generous portion and really flavorful.

I highly recommend this restaurant for business lunch.

“Very Tasty, High-End Lunch”
Reviewed May 28, 2014

I meet my daughter or niece here for lunch periodically. The food has been very good. The menu offers a good mix of choices, from full meals, to salads, to hearty appetizers. We really like the Jumbo Stuffed 'Srooms. The initial service is outstanding but there are sometimes delays in the servers getting you the check once you are done eating, which is frustrating for lunch.

Thanks for you comments and I am so glad you loved the food.

One of the most frustrating things for guests can being held up when you are ready to do. So sorry this happened to you. We train our servers to always have the check ready for you so this does not happen. Sounds like we missed this for you, and you comments will only help to get better.

Thanks again

“Always great food!”
Reviewed May 28, 2014

We often go here for luncheons, dinner and drinks for work as well as going on my own. The food is fantastic! The service great! The last time I went I had the grilled Chicken salad which was fantastic! We also had the deep fried asparagus and it was fantastic! And the amount of food you get is always plenty to share on appetizers. Love this place!!!

“Good, if slightly rushed”
Reviewed May 24, 2014

Good food, felt slightly rushed. Waitress brought main courses as we were still eating starters when main course arrived. Tips are very important to staff so we concluded they wanted to get us fed and out as quickly as possible to get the next customers in. Also wrongly charged for a beer which we queried with waitress who did change the bill. An OK dining experience.
