Weve been to Hennessys 3 times. First by choice, to try it..the burger was horrible...and the fries werent done enough. The second time was for a birthday party...the menu is very different...things like lamb, potpie, Irish named things, pot stickers...hash, and things we just weren't very interested in. The few american things on the menu they slaughtered. The 3rd visit... More

My husband and went here for a mid day meal for my birthday. We both ordered the cod special, which was very good. Because it was my birthday, I got a free dessert. The service was excellent.

Went on a Sunday morning for breakfast. Good Bloody Mary's and the food and service was good. They had a breakfast buffet, but we all ordered off the menu.

Two thumbs down. Just came in for a drink at the bar, and they forced dinner menus at us. Actually, wasn't that hungry, so split a Shepard Pie. Bill added $3 dollars for sharing. Not cool. Atmosphere not so hot either. Stay north if your walking the town.

We went twice in the same day because it was close to our hotel. The first time for food.What a disappointment!! My wife ordered the "Boxty" that they were out of.( 5;00 on a Sat.) I had the "Shepherds pie" or as I call it potatoes and gravy( since it was lacking in both lamb and veg.) Really how expensive... More

There's a certain irony about an Irish pub in the parking lot of a Catholic Church. We ate during an off time, so we pretty much had the place to ourselves. The service was good and the Irish/British food was authentic and tasty.

The food here is awesome! Perch night is probably some of the best ever. The corned beef is excellent tender and tasty.

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.

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.
