This is a favorite lunch spot for our group of friends. They offer traditional Irish food as well as some American fare. Their lunch soecial of a burger and a beer for $6.99 is a hit!

Maybe it is because of a lack of restaurants in downtown Muskegon ? We arrived before 530pm with a need to leave by 7 for a concert. Not many diners at that time. The concert was bringing 2000 people, two blocks away. We were told to sit in the rather large back room/bar area as the front was reserved for... More

Took 30 minutes to get a draft beer in front of me. New, yet personable/friendly table server that management had not taken the time and effort to properly train. Food getting to table was also slow. However, good beer and good food. Tom

Average food at a fair price. I liked the old menu better that included potato soup and other "irish dishes". Service is good. Not good if you're in a hurry though.

Is Thursday fot $9.99, no seconds. The perch were on the small size, and limited, but the flavor was good. Their offerings of tap beer was commendable for a small place. The only problem, of the 8 drafts sampled (4 guys), NONE came out in a Beer Clean Glass? The result, no collar, and the beer tasted flat. The backroom... More

Weekend Buffet was very good and reasonably priced. Also enjoy the Thursday night perch special. I frequently try a flight of Irish whisky and they have several varieties to choose from. Music is played on many evenings. give it a try!

My husband had the lamb slider with a stout beer and I chose a regular burger basket with a flavored lemonade. They both tasted better with a plate of hand dipped onion rings.

Stick to the beer and other drinks. The perch dinner we had was terrible: Too much breading, over-cooked twice over. We had our first and last dinner at Hennessy's Pub.
