“Houlihan's always gets it right.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 3, 2013

Having been to this Houlihans over a dozen times, as well as others in Long Island, we are always very impressed with the overall excellent customer service, food, and especially the fact that they don't have any tables where you feel like you are sitting close to anyone. All seating gives you your own space and that's important when many other restaurants seem to want to cram in as many tables as possible for obvious reasons $$$

Haven't been to a Houlihan's in years. But, this one was exceptional. Ample parking. The food was great and the service even better! You'll love it.

“Ok for a chain restaurant”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 5, 2013

Stopped in for lunch on Christmas Eve. Restaurant was not crowded at all. Waiter was prompt and pleasant. Had Slider/Soup lunch special - sliders were a bit skimpy, not much pork on the bread. French Onion soup was quite good. 2 lunch specials, iced tea & 1 cosmo $31. plus tip.

“Poor service...bad first impression”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 22, 2012 via mobile

This was my first time at this restaurant and I was severely disappointed. I went for late night dinner and it was bar service only. Once we finally got a booth, we had to repeatedly ask more than waiter to have the table cleaned off from previous people and finally the table was cleared after a longer than usual time. Then the waiter didn't give us menus when we sat, we all shared one menu left behind for the longest before we each received our own. This was one of the most inattentive waiters I've ever seen! After ordering my meal with an added side salad, he forgot to bring my salad and I had to ask about it and he brought it once I was halfway through my meal, only time he acknowledged a fault and didn't charge me for it. It's really a shame that this was my first experience and bad impression based on service because the food wasn't that bad. The stuffed chicken entree with veggies and mashed potatoes was well seasoned and flavorful. I'm not eager to return though...

Poor service, mediocre menu, burgers come on whole wheat roll and there's isn't a substitute choice. Soggy fries
