Pretty good for a Pub

Food was really good for a pub, the service was AWESOME. Jenny did a great job taking care of our table of 6. We started off with the Irish Nacho's, the entire table loved them. We ordered the cluck burger, Irish burger, french dip and fish&chips. All of it was was good!

Service was good. Fish tacos excellent. Grilled cheese sandwich good too. No rush to get us out. Server accidentally forgot my mixed drink. When I finally asked about it, she totally apologized and offered to buy me one. That was a pleasant surprise and I would definitely return.

The hamburgers are delicious, the wait is virtually non-existent and the food comes out quickly and well-prepared. My party of five also had a turkey club and salad and they all commented on how good the food was. The waitresses are quite attractive, which is a definite bonus for the male clientele!

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

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.
