It's a Irish pub no mistaken that. A lively and happening place with a good variety of Irish and non Irish pub food. Love their burgers and Rubens. Large portions which always go home for a second feast. It does tend to get noisy especially when live entertainment is there. Staff is friendly and efficient. Also a shuffleboard table in... More

I am in the Metuchen area quite often and really wanted to like this place. In fact, I feel it deserves a two but I want to give it another try. I have been in about a half dozen times and I received wildly inconsistent service. I often order a pint and the price varies for the same beer. Sometimes... More

Chris The pricing is based on the size of the beer 16 or 20 oz, and also the ABV within the beer. So therefore, the pricing is always consistent either $5 for a $16 oz or 6.50 for a 20 oz. It has nothing to do with the server, Thanks for the feedback chris More

This is an Irish Pub - simple. My family and I there to both eat and be seen but friends and family. There's always food for us along with the kids. My favorite is the Guinness Stew, Potato Leek soup and Shepard's Pie. Always solid and a great place to eat with family and friends.

Old style Irish pub in Metuchen offers burgers, salads, some Irish dishes and other standard American pub fare. All of it is "pub" style comfort foods. I had the Guinness Chicken entree with a glass of Malbec, on the recommendation of the waitress. I enjoyed the food and the wine. Others at the table had Coconut Shrimp, Chicken Murphy, and... More

I've tried Hailey's several times for food and it's just not very good. One of the worst shepherd's pies I've ever had, dried out. Fish and chips usually a safe bet is not seasoned properly so it's tasteless. Hamburger over cooked.Might be a nice place to have a beer and some nachos while catching a game with friends or if...

The servings are quite large. I had shepherd's pie and took more than half of it home. It was still very good when heated up the next day. My wife had the Guinness stew with the same results. The Guinness was great. We regularly eat here when we are in the area and have not been disappointed. I just wish... More

Nothing Irish or good about the food. Had the special during world cup - 1 sausage, 1 rasher, a few small thin slices of Corned Beef and half a head of boiled cabbage. Sausage was dark brown, dry and crumbly with odd taste - a mix of 2 day old Bologna and Black Pepper. Nothing like an Irish sausage. The... More

Used a restaurant.com coupon and found out most appetizers were half-price during happy hour. Good deal. Filet mignon bites, eggplant, o'reuben spring rolls and fried bacon were all excellent. Onion soup: skip it, not much cheese and too much bread. Entrée: fish and chips lacked seasoning. Attentive waitresses. You do have to pay for on street meters (before 6 pm)... More

Hailey's has a great beer selection, especially craft beers. They have a good selection of food on the menu, but the quality is average. The bar is also loud even when not crowded. The service is OK. However, there is one bartender who will ignore you unless you are a regular and she knows you. There is no reason to... More

Hailey's is a very lively Irish Pub in downtown Metuchen. It has a great bar, with many choices of beer and a typical "pub" menu. The service is usually good, except on Friday and Saturday nights when the place gets packed, and the service slows somewhat. Hailey's has music many nights and is a great place to meet friends and... More
