“great views from the upper deck”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 19, 2014

this is usually our first place to check when we are looking for a beer or something to eat on the pier. Selection is nice, portions are on the larger size (not humongous, but good sized) and the beer and drink selection is nice. There is ample seating outside at the pier, but best would be upstairs with the view. Happy hour is providing some ok deals (if you forget the large Budweiser special :-) )
Sometimes they have special beers on tap, so it's worth to ask what's available.

“It's a Pub with Pub Grub”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 1, 2014

Hennessey's is what it is - a pub with pub grub and damn good grub at that. With the whole family or alone, a good place to grab a pint of beer and a 'burger or something more elaborate off the extensive menu and watch the Pier and Ocean! My favorite is a pint of breakfast Guinness and Eggs Benedict.

“Great View”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 27, 2014

Great place to people watch. Just had some fries, and they were good. The fries would have been just OK if I wasn't looking at the beach.

“Just an OK place”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 22, 2014

Really liked the outdoor seating, it was late so didn't get the view that everyone talk about, but it was good day out! Now the food I was disappointed. I ordered the burger samples and by the time I got them they were cold and very dry! Not tasty at all. So just had 2 of the 4 they served. All I did finish were the fries, those were good. My friend had the fish and chips order and that was pretty good.

“great location”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 19, 2014

Stopped here for drinks and a rest while strolling around beautiful Hermosa beach. I can only comment on the drinks and the view, both of which were excellent. Hennessey's is a fairly large tavern with a rooftop patio, the view of the pier from the deck is perfect for kicking back and people watching.
