Great beer selection and wonderful pub food with some very substantial items also included (meat and potatoes). Have always had wonderful and helpful service. Great place to go. I still haven't tried their flights of Irish Whiskey, but I will soon.

We were at the market and decided to stop for lunch. I had never been there before. We started with delicious onion rings and I had a fantastic house burger. First time in a long time my burger was cooked as I requested! The server was very friendly (Karen) and I was impressed with her knowledge of the menu and... More

We were on vacation and stopped in to try this restaurant. We ordered roasted beet salad, ribs, shepherds pie, and perch. The food is very good and it arrived to the table at the appropriate temperature. The waitress was very friendly and efficient. We were pleased.

Enjoyed the awesome dinner offering of perch. The breading was light and tasty. Great serving size too! I highly recommend it. We visited on a Saturday night and were able to listen to live music too!

We love the light batter on the Thursday perch special. $9.99 gets you 5-7 good sized pieces of fresh lake perch. The cole slaw with it is yummy. Service is good and efficient. Lots of smiling people here means good food and good service. Parking is well lit and off street right next door.

Oh a corner lot in downtown, Hennesy's is attractively decked out in etched glass, carved wood, and Irish county banners. It's arranged in two L-shaped sections, each with its own well-stocked bar. It has a limited but appealing range of Irish and bar food: Their Guinness stews, burgers, and fried perch are excellent, as is their house stout: their traditional... More

Hennesey's is not nearly well enough known for their weekend breakfast. It's honestly one of the best home cooked breakfasts in town and reasonably priced considering. Skip the buffet and order from the menu. The large Irish Breakfast is amazing, and the service is friendly and prompt.

Enjoyed the irish food. I had the pork loin and mashed potatoes which was very good. My husband had the shepherds pie. They could have given a better helping of bread though.

In tradition of the Irish "Public Houses", Muskegon can proudly say that it has its own "Wee bit of Ireland" to come to and have a cold pint and great Irish fare. Hennessy's Irish Pub & Restaurant has a lively atmosphere with traditional Irish dishes along with other worldly cuisine. With 24 beers on tap and 20 Irish whiskeys, Hennessy's is the place to enjoy the perfect pint or any of a wide variety of cocktails. The food is always made from fresh ingredients and local ingredients whenever possible. This is all made better with warm fireplaces and dark woods that accent a festive location for merriment. Our ambition is to be the chosen place to gather with family and friends to share great food, drinks, conversations, and lively music in a cheery and pleasant environment.
