We visited Horrigan's for dinner a recent Saturday and found the experience to excellent overall. We heard that it was popular and to arrive early to avoid a wait. We just beat the rush and were soon in a full to capacity restaurant. Even at the busiest time, the service was outstanding. Their beer selection is very good, and very... More

I was afraid of poor service after reading some reviews but service was fine. Orders were taken promptly and food was served in a timely manner - and I would know bc I'm always trying to entertain my 2 toddlers while waiting for our food. My husband and I ordered the Shepards pie bc we wanted to get something Irish.... More

We ordered fillets and a NY Strip. I ordered the strip medium, it arrived well done and tough. Easily the worst steak I have ever been... More

Don't get me wrong, the food here is excellent. But I have learned to get a water as the soda is always flat. But the service is so lacking here. It's almost as if you are bothering them to get them to bring you even a drink. No one smiles there anymore and it's unfortunate as the place use to... More

We have ate at this restaurant several times and they have stepped up their game with some incredible additions to the menu, as well as the presentation and flavor of the food. Must try the meatloaf! Excellent! Some people complain that it's noisy - well maybe, but it's a hometown neighborhood place where everyone knows everyone, so you're going to... More

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
