Dale and I visited Houlihan’s yesterday for a late lunch. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ Service and kindness. We had a young fellow and he was so great!! His personality, kindness, knowledge was tremendous and he went above and beyond in serving. ⭐️⭐️ Taste and flavor of my meal....I had the fish tacos. The fish was tasty, crunchy and had nice flavor. The onions, and toppings were just not to tasty. I ate one and left one on my plate. The plate was around $14. 😮 I also had unsweet tea. I love tea and anymore it is hard to get fresh brewed tea—this was and it was so fresh and perfectly brewed. ⭐️ Price was a tad expensive for two fish tacos - $14.00. The tacos came with one side in which I got a small cup of soup. The French onion soup was very good! ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ Location - Houlihan’s has two (maybe more) locations in Springfield. We are at the one on the North end of Springfield; closer to I-44. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ Atmosphere and Cleanliness - Nice atmosphere and very clean.More

Excellent service and food! We sit in a small booth by the bar, and always find a seat without waiting. Love it here!

The beer was cold. The meal was good. The live music was a plus. The staff was excellent. Our only issue was parking; apparently there was a banquet going on in the adjacent hotel and parking was crowded.

Great service and we were very pleased with the food. We both decided to choose from the fix price menu and got the spinach dip and tuna for an appetizer. Meatloaf and Fish and Chips for dinner, and the butter cake and cheesecake for dessert....We boxed the desserts because we were stuffed but both the meatloaf and fish and chips were amazing. The dill sauce that came with the fish was amazing and the fries were hot and crispy. The red wine sauce that was over the meatloaf was delicious. The spinach dip was not my favorite but it was fine and tasted like any other restaurant’s dip. The tuna had a great flavor and is a must have if you like it. Great place overall and I would definitely recommendMore

I had a food voucher from delta because of a canceled flight so I called prior to ask if they accept these they said yes. Upon arrival to the restaurant I was not greeted or seated at a table. There were NO signs saying “wait...to be seated” so I proceeded to find an empty table and sit. A waitress came over to me after quite a while and asked if I seated myself I said yes. She then got flustered and asked what I wanted (in a rude tone) I told her my order and had to repeat it three times. I waited for over an hour for a salad that I had ordered to go. When The waitress brought me my salad there was no silverware. I then showed her the food voucher and she told me she had “never seen one like that”. She took the voucher and my total was then $0.55 I gave her my card because I was going to tip and pay the left over amount. I then waited an additional 10-15 minutes and when she finally brought back the receipt and silverware my credit card was not with the receipt. I then had to wait another 10-15 minutes for her to come back so I could ask her where my card was. She had left my card in her apron and at this point waiting over an hour and a half for a salad and receiving crappy service I decided not to tip. Well when she came back to give me my card she had realized that I didn’t tip and rudely asked if I needed anything else. I then finally got back to my room and at this point it was really late I opened the salad container to find that my $15 salad didn’t have any salad dressing! At this point I’m livid because this salad was definitely not worth $15 (just spring mix and tomatoes with some chicken) and I did not want to go all the way down there again for the dressing THEY forgot! I called room service and explained and they sent up some ranch. The ranch was in an uncovered cup carried carried by someone not wearing gloves or anything. At this point I basically just went to bed because it was so late.More

Have only recently started venturing out after the pandemic. Post pandemic we were sorry to see Tara had moved on. Today Amber was our waitress. I guess we have a new favorite. She was attentive even though she was busy. Definitely hustling around. The food...was exceptionally good today. I had the salmon. Perfection. My husband had a burger that he raved about. Even his tomato slice was good. Hoping to get my birthday coupon soon. We will be back. Another plus is the cleanliness. Seats are comfortable and not sagging in the middle like some places. All around a good visit.More

Booked a table for 8. Arrived at 7:30 for pre drinks. After ordering our drinks we were told by the waitress we had booked the table with a short while before that our table was ready. Took our drinks to the table which we were...made to pay for before being nearly dragged to our table that was half hour early. The minute we sat down we was asked what we wanted. We told the server we didn’t know as we didn’t have a menu. She sighed and sulked off, returning to slap a menu on the table in front of us. We came back with water that we didn’t want and told us to be quick with our order. We ordered a soup starter and our main. Our main turned up while we were still eating our starter (complete with thumb in my actual food) and left on the table because ‘it doesn’t take that long to eat soup’. As soon as we had finished our soup we went onto our main without any break so it wasn’t too cold. 4 forks in an our waitress called Heaven was asking ‘what dessert will you be ordering’, I said I’d like to eat my main first and she was gone. The minute our fork went down from our half eaten dinner (to rest and take a drink) we were given the bill. The place wasn’t busy and we found that we were obviously not welcome. We paid, tipped the basic (we’re not rude) and left. You could say this was probably the worst service we have had in a long time. We left the restaurant at 8:10. 40 minutes after walking through the doors. Not so much Heaven, more hell.More

Hadn't eaten in a Houlihan's for YEARS and they have certainly changed the menu. It was still extensive enough to find something to eat. I had the scallops which was really tasty and my wife ordered the filet minon that was good as well. The...prices were pretty decent for the place and the service was excellent. Certainly a place that bears consideration when in the area.More

I have stopped here a few different times for a casual business lunch, some business talk but not a full blown lunch meeting. I always enjoy the Houlihan's Burger and their french fries, they cook the burger to perfection. Also, if you want an appetizer,...their firecracker shrimp is amazing. I highly recommend for lunch, I have not had dinner there but I am assuming it is also great.More

For the second time in a week, we're passing through Springfield on our way to/from Chicago. Houlihan's was next door to the Fairfield Inn (located in the Doubletree) so we walked over for dinner. The restaurant was spotless, Emily's service was great and the food...was surprisingly good. Top notch for a chain restaurant. You won't be disappointed. Thanks Emily and kitchen staff!More

We loved everything apart from too much salt spoiling the rice. As an apology we were given a free dessert and were glad of a little ice cream after the salt. However the steak and wedge salad was brilliant as were the scallops and as...to the mushrooms - totally wonderful! Make sure you order a double portion before 6.00 (the end of happy hour, we didn't know they had a happy hour...) I found this place on the trip-adviser with some great comments so it made a change for us to try it out. We'll be back!More

Sadly we would like to apologize for not reviewing the Mars' location. (See website locations). Now onward to the Springfield review. We were finishing a drive to Branson and we like to visit restaurants not found in our home area. We are glad we chose...Houlihan's. The location was very convenient right off hwy 60 and we were greeted and seated quickly. Our waitress Bailey showed up promptly and was fantastic throughout our scrumptious meal. We ordered french onion soup and a Ceasar salad to start, both were great. Ot was the first Ceasar salad I have enjoyed and finished in quite a while. We then had fish and chips, and scallops. Scallops were delicious the fish was just slightly over crisp. We had no room for dessert, but we were tempted. The best recommendation is I would come again. Not the most inexpensive but felt worth the bill of 53.00.More
