We frequent Houlihans in Dubuque around 5-6 times a year, and have NEVER had a bad meal or experience there. Food is TOP NOTCH, kids meals are the best of any restaurant we have ever been to, and service is always very good. The management...More

I had the portobello burger with rice. Both were very good. Fast courteous service. I was disappointed not to see the veggie burger on the menu. It was excellent.

I have been to several houlihans and this was probably the worst food. The service was fabulous, but the chicken tortilla soup was greasy and unappealing. The scallops were overcooked and the steaks were thin and had a lot of fat. The interior looked like...More

Service was great and so was the food! I also used room service after a long day at work, same great results. I would definitely go back.

Creative menu was a surprise. Busy, fun atmosphere, reasonably priced menu. If you are staying right there don't bother leaving the premises when Houlihans will satisfy for needs. Dessert was the softest part of the menu. Good martini

Not sure what other reviewers are expecting. As far as "ambience" - it is simple, contemporary and a lot easier to have a conversation here than the places wall-papered with TV screens. It is on our regular rotation when we don't feel like cooking. The...More

Not sure what's going on with some of the other reviews. We had dinner here last night and service was excellent. Flat bread pizza, buffalo chicken salad and potato soup were all very good. We have dined here many times and have always enjoyed the...More

We went to Houlihan's for Happy Hour and left unhappy! Went to the bar - no greeting and waited 9 minutes for a "hello" and "what would you like"!! Not a good way to start. We left after our drink and decided to go somewhere...More
