Food was good - atmosphere hasn't change much since it opened. The pot stickers, when cooked well done are awesome.

The menu options were quite limited in my opinion and the food was okay, but likely won't go back. It was busy, so apparently others like it, just didn't care for it myself.

We already had our Christmas Party for this year and we went to Houlihan's. Nothing to complain about. Excellent service & food. We even got a "separate" area for the party even though they don't have a closed room but they came up with a great solution. If you are looking for a place to have a party or celebration... More

I received a coupon for a free birthday dinner. My scallops and asparagus risotto were delicious as was my husband's steak. We always order the Tuscan Bean Salad to begin with. A very nice treat for dessert was the creme butler which was creatively decorated for my birthday. All in all, a very nice evening.

We recently visited Houlihan's since they sent me an email with a birthday coupon. We had a fantastic lunch out on the patio. Based on a recommendation from our server, we both ordered the spiralized that noodle salad with chicken. It was delicious! The mango iced tea was also yummy! We will be back!

I've lived near houlihans for several years without dining there. They recently sent us a $15.00 off coupon so we went. I was really pleased with my food, the service and atmosphere. I had the organic power salad with salmon and couldn't have been more pleased. Then we ordered dessert which was a larger portion than the dinner and so... More

Met up with my brother and sister in law for dinner. We sat outside and had a delightful summer dinner. Enjoyed a house salad so much as it has lots of ingredients. The chicken wrap is light and full of flavor. Drink options are plentiful. We were too full for dessert. Our waiter was very accommodating. There were no tables... More

This restaurant has never disappointed, whether it was with our grandchildren or just as a couple. Service is always friendly and attentive. The quality of the food and the choices are ample.

For my husband's birthday, we received a coupon for $15 off our meal from the eclub. So we ordered fried mushrooms -- huge, made with cream cheese. Yummy but not good for you. Then we finished with healthy meals -- salmon for him; steak and wedge salad for me.

I really wish I could give this an excellent review but there is always one thing that really bothers me about this place, there outdoor patio! It's plain, boring and a little uncomfortable. If you sit on one of the concrete booths they have, wouldn't it be nice to have some decorative colorful pillows to sit on instead of the... More
