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

Even though it was a Wednesday night, the place was PACKED, and we were told we'd have around a 30 minute wait, but we actually only had to wait 5-10 minutes, which was nice. The restaurant itself is very nice. It has a nice atmosphere. The only thing was that we were sitting near the bar AND the door to the outside seating, so people were constantly walking by us. The food was really delicious. The portions weren't huge, but we all left full, so that's all that matters, and the prices were decent - not too expensive, but not the cheapest. It was my mother's birthday, so we were hoping they'd do something for that (maybe a free dessert, or something) but they said they didn't do anything for birthdays (which we found out later wasn't true - on their website this location is listed as somewhere you're supposed to get a free meal for your birthday - lame.)

Large Houlihan's clean and well kept. Is in the old Hershey Press building which is very nice. Wait staff was OK, food was very good for a chain.

“Very Nice Restaurant”
Reviewed 14 August 2014

We ate here for lunch one afternoon while visiting Hershey Park. We sat at the bar. I apologize but I do not remember the bartender's name but she was very nice and informative. I do remember her saying that her entire family works for Hershey. This bar is owned by Hershey. We ordered the margharite pizza and a meat pizza and both were delicious. For two pizzas and 2 beers each, our tab was under $35. Not a bad deal! There is restaurant seating, bar seating and outdoor seating.

“Crowded for a reason!”
Reviewed 13 August 2014 via mobile

Told a 45 minute wait, but it was less than 20! Our server was excellent, suggested his favorites and we went with it! Stuffed chicken and fish tacos... Both great!
