I eat here when I visit family nearby. Usually, it's for dinner, but today we had lunch. My bacon burger was excellent and the chicken parmasan sandwich was delicious. Great place!

It is probably one of the better, more consistent chain restaurants out there. And this one in Westbury is their best example...great place to visit with really good service.

Eating at Houlihan's was neither good nor bad...just so-so. The service was unremarkable and slow. The wait staff showed very little concern about our meal and was slow delivering it to our table. The food was average in taste and portion size. Overall, an average, forgettable dining experience. Go somewhere else to find a memorable one.

It had been a while since I ate at a Houlihan's. so I wasn't sure what I would find. I was pleasantly surprised. The atmosphere was very good, sat at the bar to eat. The bartender was friendly and helpful. Tried the Mexican Chicken special, it was very good. I would come back here if I was in the area... More

I have had some terrific meals here, particularly the Pot Roast and Jambalaya, and their burgers, pastas, and seafood are terrific. Today, however, I must report to you that they have the BEST Bottomless Soup & Salad I have found so far, and I have tried two local competitors. They serve smaller portion entrees for a lower priced lunch but... More

I called ahead and placed a take out order after a long day at a swim competition with the family. Simple order.. 2 burgers, a salad and a potsticker appetizer. Said it would be 15 minutes. We arrived to pick it up to find out they only cooked 1 burger. Had to wait for the 2nd burger which seemed to... More

Popped in for a bite to eat. The atmosphere is Dark here....too dark....it's not a "club" or evening show/entertainment place...they need to rethink this. It's like a foreboding presence and funny thing is....we actually overheard others make same comment. ( take a look at other reviews....) Service was fair at best. Greeted and seated quickly ( mid week early dinner... More

Houlihan's is a chain restaurant, with average food. We had a black & bleu burger (with bleu cheese) and a chicken-pasta dish that was a little spicy. We also enjoyed an appetizer of cheese fries. Nothing special to report, but the bill was a little more than expected: $52 with no alcohol or desert.

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.
