Only been to Houlihans a few times, has always been good in Westbury. The service at this location was awful. Waitress would disappear for extended periods of time not even checking in on us. Food was decent

The music was too loud and the cocktails were lousy. But the service was acceptable and the food was decent. Prices were okay too.

We absolutely love Houlihan's, especially the one at 923 Broad Hollow Road, Rt. 110, in Farmingdale, NY. We have dinner there almost every Saturday at 5:30pm. We just started making reservations online because it has been getting so crowded even at that hour which is early for dinner. So, just to be sure we get a table, I make reservations. The food is excellent, the servers are very friendly and capable, the atmosphere is just right for us, and the wait time for our food to be served is just right also. I highly recommend it to anyone wanting dinner out on a Saturday. Be sure to make reservations online unless you want to wait a considerable amount of time to be seated. It is very popular in the neighborhood.

The food is generally good here but the poor communication between the floor and the kitchen that was characteristic of Houlihan's has lingered since the purchase by Landry's. Nacho Appetizer came with jalapenos on top even though they were supposed to be on the side - and about 25% of the chips were scorched. Other changes to orders were unheeded by the kitchen. The wait staff struggles to make up for the kitchen's oversights.

Went there because of a promotional $10 off but could not use it if pre-fixe meals were ordered. Since the pre-fixe meals were ALL more expensive, Houlihan's could have taken in more money from us if allowed. Extremely frustrating.

Wanted to go to a Houlihans for specific menu items that were in another location that closed. Except for the longer ride, I was not disappointed.

The appetizers and entrees was not up to par. The rice was too greasy/oily and the chicken appeared not to be well done. The drink was disappointing because i thought i ordered their new tiki drinks to come in a cool cup that i wanted to purchase but it did not. The new appetizer (elote dip) was no chunks of corn in it like the advertisement i got in the email. Unfortunately this time at this restaurant was beyond a disappointment. The only upside was the waitress that attended us! Super sweet and did not charge the entree because i hardly touched it and told her i did not like it.

Enjoyed the fish and chips as well as combo appetizer.
Just had to wait a bit as they seemed to be short staffed like most other places.

They were out of ribs, which is what I went there for. This was a disappointment, but it happens.
We then ordered our food, from our waitress who was definitely lacking a personality. Bad day maybe?
As we waited for the food to arrive, we took note of the wood table we were sitting at, and how worn and scratched it was. Looking around the immediate surrounding area, it appeared old and dirty as well. We discussed how they could have fixed the place up a bit while they were closed during Covid. The place was showing how little they care about it
After waiting for almost a half hour for our food, we asked the waitress if the food would be out soon. He response was, “When the food is ready, it will come out”, as she walked away, as if avoiding us.
Whaaaaaat?!?!?!
I think the proper response should have been that she’d go check on our meals. Instead, we got this curt, snotty response.
Well, we had, had enough! We got up and walked out. On the way out, my husband told the manager what had happened. He didn’t really seem to care and made no attempt to try to rectify things.
So……. I will not be going back to Houlihans. We wound up going to eat at a restaurant down the street, and had a delicious meal, served by a very pleasant young man. What a difference! Guess they’ll be getting our business from now on.
Bye Houlihans!

It was quieter than usual. For some strange reason, probably since we were seated in the main dining area, the overhead lighting was very dim, making menu reading difficult. The food was prepared as ordered, a plus. Our server was very helpful and attentive. Enjoyed eating at Houlihan's Farmingdale, NY. Will return.
