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

We love it here. Something other than the chains and we are always happy with it when we go! Always busy when we go! Fun place!

This is our favorite lunch place and weekend hangout. It has all the charm of an Irish pub plus a sophisticated menu. Great drinks. Music, trivia night, the place to be for St. Patrick's Day. Right downtown, easy to find, in the national registered historic Near Westside Neighborhood. Part of the old Elmira Irish section of the city.

I've never been disappointed with a Horigan's meal, although my husband has. I have a lousy memory for names, drinks, and food, but I know what I like, and I do like to go to Horigan's. The Irish stew I had a couple weeks ago was delicious!

As a rule, we don't take our daughter to lunch in bars. And when I see "tavern", I generally visualize a gritty dive full of unstable types. So Tripadvisor was a god-send in this case -- we were in Elmira yesterday, and headed here for lunch. Good call. This is a pleasant, friendly old place, not fancy but spotless and... More
