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!
This place absolutely blew us away. They just opened back up for the season and the place was slamming and jamming for college basketball games! They have tons of had TVs all over the place showing all the games. Service was friendly, attentive, and personable. Our server had great recommendations, in fact we ordered almost everything she said. We started with they’re signature tater totchos and they were delicious. The Gouda cheese sauce is definitely a great touch. We also got the giant pretzel, and it was enormous, soft, and the cheese sauce was bomb. The foot long belly buster hot dog was incredible!!!! It had everything you could think of on it - cole slaw, blue cheese, Buffalo sauce, even potato chips! A must try when in Branson.The shrimp tacos were delicious as well. Prices were fair for the plates, great value. They have a great happy hour I think until 5pm during the week. Manager visited the table, very nice touch. All in all, we plan to come back before we go back home. We highly recommend this place.
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.
