“Great value, excellent service!”
Reviewed November 17, 2012 via mobile

Houlihans is always consistent. Good food at a good value. Service is always spot on and friendly. Not usually a fan of chain restaurant concepts but this is a locally owned franchise and they do a great job all the way around.

“Surprise Birthday!!”
Reviewed November 11, 2012

It was a surprise birthday for my sister and Houlihan's let her daughter come in early and set up posters and balloons. There were 18 people and the service and atmosphere were excellent!!
Everyone ordered off the menu and EVERYONE was delighted with their food. Rebecca and Erica were awesome!! Very attentive and knew the menu...accurate description of the menu items. They also picked up on the surprise as we came in and asked my sister to come over here for a "survey". She fell for it and was led into the surprise party....it made it a total surprise!! I will be back to Houlihan's for the friendliness but mostly for the food...so many items on the menu I want to try!! Thanks!

“I want this restaurant to succeed”
Reviewed November 9, 2012

When Houlihans first opened the food and atmosphere were wonderful.
The atmosphere is still warm and inviting however the service and food have taken a turn for the worse. I want this restaurant to get back to what it once was, Excellent Food and Service.
