Forget 'casual dining.' That's an industry term so out of touch with how consumers eat and drink today. For premium quality and style; fare that's at times familiar and other times adventurous and a laid-back modern setting, Houlihan's is a true original.

Had the loaded potato soup and the ahi tuna salad. Both were ah-mazinly fresh and both were served by an awesome server named Nicole. She was knowledgeable about the menu, kind, made great suggestions and stayed on top of our every need. She is first...class.More

I know it's a chain, but this may be the best location of them all. Even though it's bustling, the food, drinks and service are very good.

Lengthy wait but well worth it! They were so busy, and everyone working was hustling. Once we were seated, orders were taken and delivered in good order. Food was beautiful prepared and tasted fantastic. Keep up the good work!

We have been going to this Houlihans for years and couldn’t wait to go back again with our party of 10 for dinner this evening. We arrived shortly after 5pm to have dinner and we’re immediately told we should have called ahead. Ok…we have never...done that before, but honestly we didn’t know that was a new policy. We asked if we could sit in the bar area and we were told that we could find an empty seat and a waitress would help us. Phew…it was a long day and everyone was tired. We sat down and all had our drink order taken. After a long day we were ready for a nice dinner with friends. Shortly after we made our order we were told that we must leave the table and that we couldn’t sit there because it was reserved. Everyone makes mistakes but we were basically thrown out of the restaurant without any alternatives or ounce of customer service. Can we sit outside? No that’s not available tonight. This property has a nice outdoor area that you would think would be overused during a pandemic. We had multiple people in our party that were over 80 years old and it would have been nice to have an alternative. Maybe….Can we put your names on a list and seat you when we have an open table? NOTHING….we also spoke to the manager who apologized for a “misunderstanding” but not for the rude host or terrible customer service. Do yourself a favor and walk down the street to the many local restaurants that actually want your business.More

A busy place, can be a bit of a wait, but that's to be expected. Nice night out with attentive and prompt waitstaff. Parking next door can be a bit of a problem (tight spaces and low clearance into the parking garage.)

Visited Houlihan's last week for dinner. It was a busy night, but we were seated promptly. I had the fish tacos and a salad, both of which were delicious! Our waitress was very attentive. Our food was a bit delayed in coming out and without...even asking, she took a few dollars off our bill which was a kind though unnecessary gesture. Casual atmosphere, good food and excellent customer service!More

Food was good. We shared a full plate of Barbecue ribs and a 7 piece Shrooms appetizer. Seating was comfortable, nice, casual atmosphere. No waiting for seating. Clean restroom. Service was fine. My husband usually avoids ribs because they can be greasy, and they were,...but they were tasty. My sides of green beans and a berry fruit cup were good. The mushrooms were medium-large size and crusty hard with a tasty dipping sauce. The portion choice was 3 or 7. 3 would have been enough for the two of us.More

More affordable than a few other Hershey options and still had some great selections. Stopped in on a weeknight when not too busy and had great service. Would definitely do again.
