I recently visited this Houlihan's with family. There are a lot of options for everyone from chicken to burgers and salads. The KC Prime Burger is one of the best burgers I have ever had. Decor is American with lighting, board games, and other knicknacks. Location is at Town Center Plaza on 119th across from Chipotle.

Got out and felt the Sun on an early Saturday morning. Headed to the flat state to look over some peices for our living room. After the shoping experience ("ordeal") it was time for NCAA March Madness Basketball and lunch. As luck would have it, Houlihan's was an eight iron away. Fish and Chips and Spinach Dip, Kim wanted some... More

We usually eat at the Houlihan'a in Fairway but I was in the area and had lunch at the one in Leawood, Ks. The food and the service was just as good even though it was a busy lunch hour. And I think that the prices are reasonable. I liked that my food was served as soon as it was... More

Houlihan's is an old standby. They have figured out how to keep this gem going with excellence for years and years. Friendly servers. Hopping at lunch time. I recommend going at 11:45AM or 1:15PM for lunch. Dinner is busy too so take that into consideration. The food is fresh, fun and great every time. They have enough items on the... More

While not lofty, my expectations were far from being met; I think I would have had a better meal at Applebee’s or Chili’s. We were there on an early Friday evening, so it was busy. We had reservations for 6:15 and were seated immediately upon arrival. It appeared that there were maybe two other tables worth of people waiting. It... More

I go to Houlihan's quite a bit - the Leawood & Olathe locations. Each time, the servers & bartenders are friendly and the food is consistently good. LOVE their Happy Hour selections for drinks & appetizers - my favs being Thai Chicken Wings & the Mango Mandarin Martini (tart, no sugar rim) :) I'm also on the e-mail list and... More

Love the filet mignon. Perfectly cooked with just a hint of char on the outside that was delicious. Also, great French onion & baked potato soup. Manager always checks to see if all is good, & it is. Lastly, the scallops are tasty. Only slight problem is the green beans have been undercooked. We go often.

Ordered the steak well done (half of it was still pink), the waitress did microwave it for me when I asked her to. The food was ok but we ordered the apple pie for dessert (it was more like an apple crisp). Very good. Average waitress.

This is always a great restaurant to go to when we just don't quite know what we want. The food is alway thoughtfully prepared hot and good, and they have a little bit of everything (American, Mexican, Steak, Seafood, etc.). The wine specials are also a good value at times, and if you don't drink the whole bottle they package... More

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.
