Great place because of the staff, however sometimes the beer taps have a foul odor in your draft. The menu is extensive and the food is typical. It is a good place to stop in when you are not sure where to go.

One of our favorite types of dinners is an appetizer dinner. You get to try different things, the food comes out quicker and it is a lot of fun. The other night we went was no different. We had nachos, lettuce wraps and pot stickers....More

Food was nothing special but good...great spot for families. They gave the kids tablets with no extra charge. It kept them busy which was nice. Menu was pretty diverse...something for everyone...service was good.

Description
In 1972, Houlihan's first opened its doors in Kansas City with an eclectic menu and energetic bar scene. Ferns hung throughout, artifacts cluttered the walls, tapestries made by San Francisco hippies formed the ceiling. It was hot.Fast forward a few decades. New inspiration. New menus. New soundtrack. And a modern, warm restaurant design with a prominent bar. Today, our company is built entirely around what the progressive consumer seeks in a restaurant + bar experience.
