I have been to a few other locations and its been good. I came here on lunch not too long ago and ordered sliders of vegetarian burgers. They were clearly burned and black on top, tasted awful. My server was sweet and asked why I didn't

Went here with a couple friends around 11. Menu was slightly expensive but the food made up for it. I was expecting the food to be a little cold, but it wasn't at all. I got the stuffed chicken breast and garlic mashed potatoes and it was fantastic. I was suprised at how fresh the food was (just like i ordered around meal time). Service was great but not smotheriing. I would recommend highly if you want a great meal later on in the evening, especially after movies.

Pros: Great food late, great service

Cons: A little on the pricey side with drinks

I go here for lunch with my co-workers once in awhile and while it's a good place for that, I wouldn't go on my own time with friends/husband. The menu is extensive so maybe that is why nothing is that great. Everything I've had is good, but nothing special.

The last reviewer is right about the long waits (this is true for Friday nights as well as weekends) and the crowded bar. However, if you embrace this atmosphere, you'll end up making conversation with others as you wait for the bartender. I like a full restaurant, with all of its energy and joviality, as long as I'm not exhausted or starving. This is a pretty fun place, the appetizers look good and taste better, and the happy hour is a good deal - 2 for 1's. I find the staff to be nice overall.

Pros: appetiziers, happy hour, wine, ambience

Cons: chicken tenders, overcrowded bar

I've never had to wait more than a few minutes for a table and I've gone at the typical busy times. The food is yummy and the service is excellent. Even the pricing is reasonable. Houlihans is one of my favorite restaurants. The atmosphere is also wonderful - not too loud but still upbeat.

This is one of the few places that offer a selection of "small" desserts. They call them "yum yums" and are the perfect size. Normally we wouldn't have room for dessert, but these. My favorite is the creme brulee. The kid's love the snicker pie.

I've been going to this place since it opened. I was a regular during the late afternoons for almost two years. I loved it. Then suddenly with some manager changes and arbritrary firings of staff the place became a tomb. Give yourself plenty of waiting time if you want a table after 5pm on the weekends. If you decide to wait at the bar I hope you have long arms to reach your drinks through the three deep person crowd. If your server/bartender is in a good mood it's well worth visiting. *they don't take reservations*

Pros: Large portions, Easy parking, Great Bar

Cons: Staff attitude bad, Long wait after 5pm, Screaming 2 yr olds

We eat will the parents all the time.

I hate ribs; but everyone else seems to like them.

The steaks are pretty good; especially for the price.
(especially better than Timberlodge; do they train
their cooks?)

I like the place, the usually good.

Staff has the personality of a vending machine. I had the ribs - bad choice. Slab of tasteless meat with a handfull of frenchfries - where's the coleslaw? With so many other dining choices, no need to go there again!

My husband and I spent the weekend in Eagan just to get away for the weekend (from the kids!) AND WHAT A SURPRISE. We usually stay in downtown Minneapolis, but we wanted to get away from everything for a change. We usually despise "chain" restaurants, but the atmosphere, service, and food at Houlihan's in Eagan was incredible for the price, especially since we ate in the bar AWAY FROM KIDS/FAMILIES. I had the filet mignon, which was cooked perfectly, and my husband had the jambalaya...."laissez les bons temps roulez!" We will be back....GET THE LONG ISLAND ICED TEA...IT COMES IN A PITCHER AND IS AWESOME.

Considered a founding father of American casual dining, Houlihan's transformed its once-kitschy decor and meat-and-potatoes menu into a contemporary restaurant serving eclectic cuisine. Geared toward a slightly more…
