It was my twins 11 year old birthday dinner. The waiter came out quickly with the cheese biscuits. He corrected our dinner immediately as soon as we told him we were short one plate. The bathrooms were extremely clean and smelled nice. Everyone was courteous and professional.
Located on the corner of Glenstone Ave./Kearney St. in Springfield, Missouri next to the Doubletree Hotel and Glendalough Conference Center, Houlihan’s is an inviting and comfortable space to hang out in our bar or dine on a delicious meal from the scratch kitchen. During the warm weather days, our relaxing patio is just the spot to sip on a signature martini and enjoy an appetizer. At Houlihan's, there are many fine entrées such as seared Ahi tuna, a savory steak and wedge salad, the stacked Kansas City cheeseburger or our famous garlic-herb cream cheese stuffed chicken, just to name a few!
We dined late afternoon so there weren’t many patrons nor did they acknowledge our reservation. The vibe was fun and there was a decent selection of food to choose from. My shrimp and seafood lettuce wraps were delicious and my dining companions felt the same with their selections. Service was average — no going above and beyond but fine. I would dine here again.
Server said restaurant was out of the crab leg cracking instrument and the restaurant was waiting for them to come in. After I requested to speak with the manager, the server magically came up with the tool. Seems like the restaurant ought to be a bit more pro-active.
