Houlihan's

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.

Lots of good items to choose from on their menu. Usually go in the summer so that we can sit outside. Asian chicken salad and lettuce rolls are yummalicious? And good if you're on Paleo.Thank you for the review Kari. Glad to hear you enjoyed the patio this summer.

Kai's Sushi & Grill

Reviewed By Mntravelsalot - Chanhassen

We have been to Kai's three times now and each time the food has been very good and well priced for the quality and quantity. However, at each of our visits there were difficulties with the service. Wrong orders placed, incorrect billing (a different order was rung up on our card and had to be voided and recharged our correct lower amount. We will definitely go back, but we just have to work with the servers to avoid difficulties.

A friend had told me he had a poor experience here because his waitress was overly anxious and rude to get him out the door at the end of his meal. I thought it was just bad luck and so went there for the first time with 2 girlfriends. To begin with, parking is a pain in Excelsior and I drover around for 15 min before finding a space. The hostess was very nice and seated us immediately (we had reservations). The place is very small and crowded and quite noisy (not a good first date place). Our waitress told us the specials, one of which was a steak which she described as "a little chewy, but in a good way." What?? When is a chewy steak ever a good thing? I started with the house salad which was nothing special and pretty small. Fo dinner 2 of us had the posole chicken. It definitely had a kick to it from the spices but tasted fine. However the portion was small. The toasted tortilla that was served on the side with it tasted very stale. My other friend had the scallops and she thought they were ok. We shared the "crispy" cauliflower as a side, yet it was hardly crispy. It must have been fried but the oil made it mushy. While we were toward the end of eating dinner but still with food on our plates (and one of my girlfriends was putting a forkful of food in her mouth), the waitress came by to ask if we were done ad could she clear the plates! It was obvious we were still eating. Also, not once did she come by to refill our drinks. After she cleared the plates she asked "can I get anything else or just the check?" We were astonished and asked "Do you have a dessert menu?" She then proceeded to rattle off a list of about 8 desserts which we could hardly keep straight. Not sure why we couldn't see a menu aside from the fact she seemed in a hurry. We split the carrot cake and an ice cream cake. They were pretty good. The cost of the meal was about $40 per person before tip. I do not plan to go back due to the poor, rude service, small portions, and average food. Too many other places in Excelsior and Wayzata to go to that far surpass this--Victors on Water, Bellecour, Giannis, Cov, etc.

We took my Uncle here for his 90th birthday. He remembered it when it was the Rivera! So the nostalgia was fun. We ordered French Onion soup and a few appetizers. The bully bites were outstanding! The soup was good, a little salty for me. The onion rings were HUGE, but a little greasy. We also ordered the coconut shrimp .. the breading was a little hard, but tasty. If I could, I would give it a 3.5. I would recommend it and would eat here again!

We were at Brindisi's Monday for Happy Hour to meet friends. It is a great deal on Mondays, 2 for 1 drinks and 2 for 1 appetizers. We especially enjoyed the artichoke dip and coconut shrimp.
