“Another link in the chain”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 22, 2013

Meh, meh, meh meh and more meh. If you want meh this is the place. It could be a cool place to have a drink and move on to dinner in a real restaurant. Sorry. I don't mean to be a snob, but this place has absolutely nothing spectacular beyond a nice, pricey bar. Lots of screaming meemie kids if that is your scene. Very loud.

“Open Late at night”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 3, 2013

My best friend and i are new in town and was looking for a place to have a late night drink and snack. We came from watching a movie and was headed back to our hotel around route 70. It was rather difficult to find a place to go to on a sunday late night. Most of the restaurants were closed and it was good to see that Houlihan's was still open.

The interior of the restau/bar is nice. Sports was on the tv. It was not very loud or noisy since it was a sunday and the bar was not nearly filled. Our attendant came and was very nice and took our orders well. Our food and drinks were served promptly and accurately.

Since we were still a bit full from our dinner we just ordered 1 cocktail drink called the "Cactus Bowl". It is a mix of pineapple juice, amaretto, rum and lime juice. The Cactus Bowl is huge so we just shared it. I liked the taste and i enjoyed it but my friend thought it was too sweet for her taste. We also ordered a large chicken fingers and we were given a generous portion.

It is a large bar but there were only a few servers. Our server, was busy serving the other guests and it was difficult to catch his/their attention. I would say that the bar is a bit under manned. It took us a while to get our bill.

Nevertheless, it was a good place to grab a drink or dine. I just wish that will be more servers to look after their guests.

“Open Late!”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 21, 2012

If you need food past 11, head here their kitchen closes late! It's a large bar, and bar staff seem in-attentive to your needs at times. Even at 12 am and you're they only one there.

Food is good, but I'll choose somewhere else that is more personal. (Bar experience only)
