Wonderful friendly pub and restaurant

Really big menu selections and inexpensive prices. My favorite is the lamb chops. You get about 5 or 6 juicy baby chops for about half of what you would pay in an upscale restaurant.

Every day is St Patrick's Day at Haileys! The food equals to the restaurants in Dublin and Galway! The beers are just the right temperatures and quite a variety. The staff feels like family always welcoming me into their"home". Music and weekly entertainment transports me back to the Emerald Isle! I try to visit weekly - usually more than once!... More

J, I have responded to many reviews posted about Haileys pub, some are really nice, and candidly some are so out of left field and I often wonder if they were ever in the pub in the first place.

You don't expect to find CUISINE in your usual Irish pub. Here you get cuisine. Read the specials. And they're always so lovely on the plate. Guinness chicken is to die for. Irish nachos are my favorite stuff your face item, easily shared by 4 people. Irish toasties-basically an open face grilled cheese with ham-- makes a great meal paired... More

We visited Hailey's Pub this past Saturday afternoon; we were in the area visiting from Hoboken. Thoroughly enjoyed our visit to a welcoming and fun atmosphere. We started off with some excellent Guinness at the bar while listening to the live music, later moved to a table for food. The owner came to our table to see if we were... More

I've only been to the pub 3 times but its always a fun time. I usually go Sunday nights to wrap up the week...or start the week depending on your point of view.

Went for lunch on a Thurs @the bar. Got Potato and leek soup which had several potatoes the size of my fist!... IN A SOUP? Gads.
