'Was alright, but would not rush back

went with a crowd for drinks and supper. Cider was good. Beers were hit and miss - my burger was fine, stew was hearty, scotch egg tiny. Waiter was nice, but manager was grumpy and objected to us merging tables. Not a bad spot, but not exceptional either.

I have been to Hennessy's several times for lunch and dinner. They have a wonderful staff that is very friendly and their food is delicious and quite authentic. If you are not familiar with Irish cuisine then this is a great place to try it out. The rule of thumb I use when I am eating somewhere that has a... More

Burger was undercooked and sent it back. must have microwaved it cause it was like leather. Service was good, waitress was friendly and competent. She recommended some unique drinks. Had a chocolate stout and frambois mixed. it was excellent will be going back to try some more drink combos they offer. Probably won't eat there though.

First time eating at an Irish restaurant (husband is Mexican). I ordered the Lamb Stew and was surprised at how 'hearty' the soup is! Very, very filling and delicious! The waitress was extremely friendly and courteous; the restaurant clean and very nicely decorated. My husband ordered the Reuben and said there could have been more dressing, overall he really liked... More

Great burgers and beer and the desserts were delectable. Super service and friendly staff. The spicy black bean burger and corned beef hash were super delicious.

My friends and I visited Hennessy's for a bite to eat before head out for drinks downtown. I ordered the deep fried pickles as an appetizer and was disappointed. The breading had a cinnamon aftertaste which was undesirable, and the pickles were so thinly sliced that the breading was overpowering. For dinner I ordered the spinach and mushroom boxty which...

Food is restaurant quality, environment was friendly (but not overdone), live music was good, many tvs and nice decor. I will never visit Muskegon again, but I will stop here for lunch on my way through Michigan next time.

The two items I had were not good. The clam/mussel side dish had a strong fish smell, and the seafood was dry. My Irish stew was glubby, and there was little question that it was a left-over with little flavor. My wife had perch which was fairly good, except for two pieces that were dried out. Won't be back.

I had the meatloaf for the main course, a scotch egg for an appetizer. The service was good and the food was average. Good, but average. For one person, appetizer and with water to drink was $16.94. I went at 6:00pm on a Monday evening. Lots of parking and I was seated quickly. I would imagine both of those are... More
