“Great food”
Reviewed April 3, 2014 via mobile

I needed a nice pleasant dinner and that is what I got. Food was hot and tasted great. Waitress was friendly and was there for all my needs. Would like to try breakfast there at some point.

“Consistently great food and wonderful service”
Reviewed March 8, 2014

I've been to Houlihan's quite a bit over the years and I am always impressed with not only how good the food is, but with their stellar customer service. Everyone working at the restaurant makes you feel important and gives everything that "something extra" to make your visit a pleasant one. From working lunches (even parties of up to 10 people), to cocktails, to dinner it is always great.

“There is a charge for dinner rolls”
Reviewed March 5, 2014

The first time we went here the service was great the food great. The second time, we were charged for rolls, and the food arrived first for one person then 10 minutes later the entree for the second person. They were friendly but we were unhappy to see a charge for dinner rolls on our bill. We asked and were told that was their policy. We probably will not go back. That just ruined the whole night out.
