The specials are very creative, fun and good to eat. Wait staff is excellent. They need a new popcorn machine!

Good food but excessively loud noise, music and conversation. Wine is expensive for a neighborhood place, go only early or late to avoid the noise.

We have eaten at horgans many of times and the meals are usually always very good. Southwest chicken wrap is my favorite along with spinach salad. This time I have only one compaint. The avacado in the salad was old and not pleasant. I used a side plate to pick the avacodo out and it sat there for my waitress... More

We were having our first meal together with family after we all converged on Elmira, so it was 6 adults and 1 child, and we ordered several appetizers, some appetizers as meals and some entrees--but they kept it all straight! The restaurant was initally quiet and only a few other tables were occupied (5pm), but by 6pm the place was... More

Horigans restraurant is a long-standing gathering place for all ages. Service is excellent and friendly and the food is good. Fish,broiled or fried on fridays is always good. I had the BLT which is by far the best in town! stop by for a drink and snack or full menu choice and enjoy the company .

I must be a glutton for punishment, because after several horrendous experiences at Horigan's I went back there (only because my work group insisted). Again, the service, for lack of a better word, just plain SUCKS. The waitstaff are so incredibly inattentive, it borders on rude. I don't understand why people choose to go here for lunch, because it always... More

1. Sat for 10 minutes without being approached by a server during slow time of day. 2. Waiter did not smile, did not say hello...basically treated wife and I like we were ruining his day by being there. 3. Waiter never asked us how food was. Never asked if we wanted more to drink, though our glasses were empty for... More

Stopped by here based on TripAdvisor ranking and I wasn't disappointed. Arrived at about 6pm and the place was hopping - had about a 15 minute wait for a table, but could've ate at the bar or tall table immediately. Tried the New England Clam Chowder and get this...there were actually clams in it, just about on every spoonful. YUM.... More
