Great Sunday place

Great place for Sunday football. Service is great, friendly at fair prices. Always a good time. The value, service, and amount of games they show on tv's makes this place great

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. Grilled corned beef sandwich probably microwaved since the bottom slice was moist and soggy. Service is distracted or just not focused. A check back on our food would have been nice so I could...

No doubt its an Irish pub with the menu selection. Food and service was quick and efficient. It certainly is noisy but hey, its a pub.

This little restaurant packs a lot of punch! The bar scene and the restaurant are both lively. It's hard to find an Irish pub with really good food..but this one fits the bill. We went on a Saturday night and the bar was full. They don't take reservations so we had to wait for a table and that was at... More

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

haileyspub, Owner at Hailey's Harp and Pub, responded to this review

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...
