Local favorite of mine

Good food, free popcorn, small town atmosphere. I like this place a lot so when I get out to have a meal, which is only once every other month or so, I always try to get my husband to take me here. Great salmon and good salads. My husband likes their wraps. We went in around 9 or 9:30 PM... read more

Went on a Friday with friends. Reserved a table and got seated promptly. Waitress was fine drinks came quick. She took our order at 620, food got to the table 700! 40 mins to cook a couple fish dinners! Food was average at best. Yea sorry but this is not for me. Kitchen needs a lot of help!

I wanted to clear up any confusion that an earlier review I wrote may have caused. In that review I mentioned that some of my friends complain of slow service during peak dining hours. To be more precise, what they are really complaining about is the length of time it takes for the food to come out of the kitchen,... More

This is probably my favorite restaurant in the area! Horigan's is nothing fancy, but they turn out some great food at very reasonable prices. The atmosphere is very casual and relaxed and the staff and owners couldn't be more friendly and accommodating. I dislike noisy, crowded places when I'm eating, so I try to always go here mid-afternoon or later... More

$11 for TEN wings?! At least when Elbow Room charges you that much for wings, you get 12-15. I don't know why Horigan's thinks they're even in the same league as Elbow though. We also had the Shepard's pie, which was a colossal disappointment. The meat was about 70% fat and the potatoes were cold and tasted like they'd been... More

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 had heard from friends that the food was really good here and thought we would give it a try. We arrived on a Sat night and found them busy but were seated quickly. 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
