Wanted to stop and really friendly place that would be on the way to the nursery. Houlihans fit the bill to a tee! Table for two with no reservation - even though the place was very busy! Fish & chip for me; Buffalo Bleu salad for Kim. Let the good time roll!

Yes, that said "Happy Hours". Houlihans has a regular happy hour and a late night happy hour ( I believe it starts somewhere around 9), and some of the best bar and wait staff in the city!

Been going here for years - nice spot for happy hour with friends or dinner with family. Outside patio is great option. Bar gets crowded so we go early. Half price happy hour menu is great - you can split apps with friends and have plenty for dinner. Favorite food are the scallops, house salad (corn and homemade ranch dressing!),... More

I met a friend at Houlihan's for lunch. We were seated quickly and the service was fast. I asked for a modification to their normal entree salad and they made the change without and question or up charge. the food arrived just as ordered and in a short time.

Several of us visited Houlihan's the week of St. Patrick's Day. I ordered the reuben sandwich special. It was huge and delicious. Half of that sandwich came home with me for another meal. I got to choose a side; I chose the brussel sprouts - great decision. They were wonderful and topped with a bit of a pesto sauce and... More

There are times my wife and I like to treat ourselves to a special lunch date. Houlihan's in Lee's Summit is our first choice. Our daughters gave us a gift certificate a few years back and Houlihan's has won our business ever since. We prefer the booth seating and always order the same drink, their delicious fresh brewed iced tea... More

Visiting during Kansas City Restaurant Week, we chose from a limited menu. The menu items offered, though, were quite good choices. Both the French Onion and Potato Soup were very good. The Fisherman Pasta was pretty good, although not quite up to expectations. The sauce had a nice spice to it, so that was nice. The Pot de Creme dessert... More

The menu has a variety, something for everyone. I had the grilled salmon and it was excellent. Would have given 4 stars, but service was very slow.

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.
