If you have the opportunity to go to Put-in-Bay, be sure to eat at Hooligan's for the best Shepard Pie you will ever eat. Prepared by chef Marie, using all fresh ingredients. Her apple crisp served with ice cream is like one you will never have anywhere else. It is super delicious! Our waitress, Maddie made good recommendations and presented... More

This restaurant was a really nice place to visit. We had a wonderful lunch with a couple of Guinnesses. Somehow, the bartender was able to craft a shamrock in the foam of the beer, that attention to detail was awesome! We enjoyed the healthy salad menu options but really could have enjoyed traditional Irish food or local cruisine, many great... More

Almost every time we visit PIB we make a stop to Hooligans. Everything I have tried has been very good. My favorite is their Bloody Mary that is garnished with a grilled cheese. Try their Hooley Cheese dip as well to dip your fries or chips into. The menu has a wide variety of food to please everyone's palate. The... More

This is a very good restaurant. I had the Wedding soup, which was amazing!! I also had the pierogies, which were good. My husband had the Reuben and onion rings. He said it was very good. For the amount of money, his meal was very over priced. The Reuben sandwich with fries was $13.50. He wanted to substitute onion rings... More

We had a great time at Hooligans! Service was good even though it was quite busy. Cool atmosphere and live band was great!

That lasted for about 3 minutes then it was turned up even louder. No other guests on porch,so it had to be an employee. I had to YELL my order to the waiter, who then yelled back what he thought he heard. Not even close. This place has great food, but it is so marred by how loud the music... More

Hooligans reminded me of the pool bar, music cranked up so loud I couldn't even carry on a conversation. This has not been the first time for loud music. Makes me wonder if the manager is hard of hearing, I will avoid it or my hearing will suffer. It is not the type of music they play just the volume.... More

Love the menu and atmosphere. Nice to sit outside and watch the circus pouring from the neighbouring bars. Waitstaff are excellent. Love the decor too. Nice Irish pub with good menu with reasonable prices.

I went there with my three friends and each of us took one meal with garnir. That was one of the best ones in USA. Although it is Irish restaraunt it has really tasty burgers, sandwiches and main meals such as shepheid's pie, sheehan rock(recommended). All bill was 15$ for each. So it was really good price for such meal,... More
