Cool local place for grub & drinks!

This a cool place to grab some breakfast/brunch on weekends! Plenty of patio seating, dog-friendly, kid-friendly and good food at decent price. We ordered some potato skins that were really good; bacon, cheese, sour cream & chives...dee-lish!! Great eggs Benedict too and their fresh fruit... read more

Eat inside, out back or inside by the bar or table. Lot's of wide screens and fine waitress's. The sandwiches are made with all fresh sliced meats and cheeses. My favorite is the Pub Club. Almost too much to eat for 2 people. Home made chips go with them.On eof the best all around Sheppards Pie. Full of melt in... More

My husband and I have always look for a dog-friendly place to eat every Sunday. Today, we decided to give Hennessey's Tavern a try, and I'm glad we did. We sat in the open-air patio with our dog, under one of the many umbrellas. This place has a casual, relaxed vibe, and the band was playing while we were there.... More

Had there not been a patio we would have gone elsewhere as the inside was way too noisy even though it was pretty... More

We had a group of 16 for a social gathering and Happy Hour. Our server, Jenni, was outstanding in getting us drinks and then taking orders and keeping all the tickets straight. We were outside in the front street-side patio on a nice June evening. The entrees/Happy Hour choices varied widely and all were nicely prepared and very tasty. It... More

OK, in 25 States anyway. We have been gone for a year. First thing we did was hit Hennessey's on Tuesday because Tuesday's are Two For One Burger Day. From the moment I took my first bite, it felt like I was home again. We have tried Burgers all across the country, but in my and my husband's opinion Hennessey's... More

Burgers, and limited entrees typify this sports / Irish bar. Service is friendly. Tuesday brings 2:1 (meals) specials. Hennessey's is fine for a quick bite or a casual night out.

A charming Irish tavern in Carlsbad Village. The front had a fire pit and tables and chairs if you choose to dine outside. We ate inside which had a fun atmosphere. Our waitress was friendly and very helpful. We happen to go on a Tuesday which the special was buy one burger meal and get the second free. I had... More
