Although the two staff who were manning a very very busy bar and food order station and were absolutely run off their feet they remained pleasant and polite, this cannot be said of the manager who was rang and called in to a very busy restaurant who did not give two whoots to the 1 hour and 25 minute wait...

This lovely Irish bar offers a great selection of meals & beverages. We particularly enjoyed the Bloody Mary oyster shots! The prices were very reasonable & service was excellent. The meals were great value for money & generous portions. Thi is a great venue to bring groups & families. It would be ideal for a birthday or office Christmas party.

Dare I say the meal I had last night at Hooligans was the best meal I have had since moving her in March. Reasonably priced, great atmosphere, terrific band and great service. Bar staff particularly Sarah were nice and helpful quick and efficient service with a smile. Highly recommend the venue

We had two meals here and they were both very nice. Definitely try the garlic bacon and onion bread for starters. Portions are generous.

Quite good all round. It's a bit of a hike from where we are staying but worth it. We are only here for the week but will pop in again for sure.

This was our first time trying Hoolihans Irish Restaurant & Bar, and whilst there were mixed feelings among the group that we were dining with, the overall experience and food was pleasurable. Unfortunately they did have an incident with an ill staff member that did put the rest of the team under the pump a bit, but they coped. The... More

Fairly standard Irish bar in Hervey Bay - we had food twice here during our stay in the town as the food was good and reasonably priced. Beware the portions of chips and potato wedges - these are MASSIVE! Good range of beers and wines and live music on Friday and Saturday nights and also Sunday afternoons I think. Good... More
