Restaurant details
Good for: Bar Scene, Groups, Child-friendly
Dining options: Lunch, Dinner, After-hours, Reservations
Description: 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.

“Dirty and Smelly”
Reviewed 22 June 2014

This place better get a refurbishment. It is Gross. It stinks from the floor to the Bar. When we left we saw crud and trash on floor right behind our booth. My wife's Yankee Pot Roast was dry. The smell was AWFUL.

Thank you for your comment. We are in the middle of refurnishing the restaurant, and will be getting new carpets at the end of the month. I am sorry that your wife did not enjoy her meal. I asure you our team works very hard to make sure that the restaurant is clean and enjoyable for every guest. This time did not hit the mark and we do apologize. Please do not hesitate to speak to a manager when present at the restaurant. If need be, at a later time, please contact the restaurant and speak directly with any of our managers. We are always glad to receive any feedback we are given and hope to rectify any negative experiences that a guest has had.

“2 out of 3 meals were good”
Reviewed 17 June 2014

Great service. 2 out of 3 meals were good. The third meal was steak and it was undercooked then sent back coming out like a charcoal briquette. However, they took it off the bill so that made up for it. The buffalo chicken salad was good as was the thai chicken.

“Houlihan's in Hershey”
Reviewed 11 June 2014 via mobile

I'm not a fan of chain restaurants, but occasionally we do patronize them. We like this Houlihan's. The food was very good and was presented well. The service we had this evening was excellent. Our waiter really took care of us, frequently refilled our drinks and checked on us. Food came out quickly as well.

“Gotta Love Houlihan's in Hershey”
Reviewed 11 June 2014

My wife and I decided to go to Hershey and eat at Houlihan's. Houlihan's is located in downtown Hershey with plenty of parking next door. We had dinner there recently . My wife had fish tacos and I had a chicken dish. Both of our meals were excellent. Our server was also very attentive and helpful. Our food was served on a timely basis. We would definitely go back.
