    It's a nice, comfortable place, good but not exceptional food. We ordered chicken parmigiana with fettuccine. We enjoyed it but I wondered why no bread (and butter) was served. That's a staple in almost any restaurant. Our server was doing double-duty as bartender on a quiet Monday evening, but didn't look our way or check back for some time. When she did, I asked whether we were supposed to have bread & butter and she said that was "by request only." Perhaps that was mentioned on menu, but I didn't see it. I would still recommend this place but wouldn't give it top marks.

    This was our second visit. Our first time was hands down the drawing factor for our return because the food, service, drinks and overall experience was outstanding! This most recent visit was the absolute worst! The service was so unbelievably slow! The cocktails (bottle beer, espresso martini, pink martini and virgin margarita) took almost 40 mins to get. The espresso martini dripped contents on outside of glass and was so gross and slippery not to mention it did not taste good at all! It was like drinking warm chocolate. I bought the same drink prior and it was outstanding and well balanced! This bartender didn’t know what they were doing. The margarita was way too bitter! The desserts we ordered came out so late after we had all finished our meal that we told them to make it to go. It was near 2 hours from ordering till we asked to leave with our desserts. The waitress was not nice and said they are understaffed. Then they should limit their reservations and maybe the two staff standing at front door could help the people serving or making drinks! Poor experience. I would suggests asking your customers if they want table inside the bar area or down the steps in the dining area

    We always enjoyed Houlihan, starting at Parmatown in the '80's, then Strongsville, and now Westlake. We almost always make a reservation, because you never know how busy they might be. The food is very good and consistent.

    We started eating more frequently at Houlihan's since the onset of the pandemic. Loads of seating, indoors and outdoors. Aaron has waited on us numerous times and never disappoints! He's very attentive, gets our orders right, food comes out hot (not left under the heat lamps). Aaron always goes above and beyond. Love the fact that I can make reservations in advance on Open Table. The So. Cal Fish Tacos are a favorite, with the Impossible Burger as a close second. We will be back soon!

    After having reservations and arriving, we were taken to the bar area. Now why would we make reservations to sit in a bar? No common sense on their part, but obviously the dining room was a much nicer atmosphere and hence my reason for a reservation. We would have just popped in if we wanted a bar scene. In the past, this was one of my favorite places to dine and haven't been there in 15 years. Not the same. Food quality is typical of almost everyone else, which is sisco frozen formed chicken breast. No flavor and texture turned my stomach. Do people really think consumers are really that dumb? There are so few restaurants who actually prepare fresh food anymore it's sad. We as consumers pay top dollar for poor quality anymore. There are about 4 restaurants who don't use sisco frozen chicken or beef ( that we know of) and those will be the only restaurants we will frequent. Also we were served an expired beer from April. But the server was amazing and attentive. She should work in an actual restaurant with fresh choices. She would be representing something much better. I always loved Houlihan's quality and there amazing Stuffed chicken breast. Now it's stuffed sisco formed chicken. Garbage! Will never return.

    We got some half priced wine and drinks because of happy hour so that was great. Houley chicken was the favorite. We sat on the patio so it was beautiful. Our server was attentive but not hovering. He had a great sense of humor. A very enjoyable evening.

    Houlihan's is a relaxing place to have dinner, or a fun place to have happy hour. The restaurant is quiet while the bar area is more lively, but not overly so. The food is very good - love the chicken piccata and the drinks are tasty. Has a great patio seasonally. My book club meets here regularly.
