We stopped here after walking the length of town on a very hot day and I'm glad we did. The service was quick and the food good. My husband had a pizza (very good, not greasy at all) and I had a blue cheese salad that was one of the best salads I've had at a restaurant in a long... More

Came here to watch the US World Cup game after recommendation from my hotel. I was impressed how nice the place looked on top of having very large TVs. There were quite a few families there too to watch the game. So it had a neighborhood/family atmosphere. The service was very good. My waitress was quick and helpful. I had... More

Honestly, I'd give Haley's five stars if I'd had consistent levels of service and food quality. The past few visits have been a marked improvement on the "just average" experiences we'd had a few months ago. I stand by their burgers and sandwiches, 100%. Can't go wrong with any of the ones on the menu.

The service was good and we had the soup & salad for lunch. The clam chowder was good, lots of clams but a little spicy.

Had lunch with my daughter yesterday, March 8, and witnessed a great display of two waitresses that excelled in customer service. We sat in the bar and Katie was our waitress.The other waitress, did not get her name, handled the restaurant part of the dining room and she was getting swamped with high school kids who got off early from...

fairly expensive food, but very good. great service, but little atmosphere. Has great potential, but management and or owners have a captive market and probably don't need to go the extra mile-- unfortunate, great potential.

It is very clear that the locals, or at least the regulars who come to drink, are treated much better at Haley's. We stopped in this afternoon expecting to grab a quick bite to eat in a nearly empty restaurant. We we're promptly seated and asked for a drink order, and after getting our water had to wait quite a... More

When you have a group or family to please this is the place. There is something for everyone on the menu. Consistently good food, welcoming atmosphere, friendly staff and you can't go wrong with choosing Haley's. My favorite with the "12th man ale", they have a garden burger that is a 5 star and pretty much their menu meets everyone's... More
