Halligans has a fire truck in the resteurent that serves as the bar. It has all the hoses, horns and sirens with flashing lights. Our waitress, Cindy, was... More

I went to the Halligan for lunch today as a result of a random Google search and was not dissapointed. The wings and barbecue were really good with large portions. The decor is firehouse themed and the walls are covered in patches from fire houses all over the US. The staff were excellent as well. Great to talk to and... More

Jesus probably ate this at The Last Supper. SO delicious at great prices, and the staff was super friendly too! Fun atmosphere. Lots of interesting things to see inside as well.

I was buying cigars at the Richmond Cigar Factory and stopped in for a beer and lunch. I had eaten here before and at one of their fancier stores. The fish & chips were good and the beer cold. The barmaid was attentive and friendly. The disappointment came with paying my tab. Gave her $35 for a $28 tab, looking... More

We had a group of 7 that went to dinner together at Halligan's. My wife and I split the Halligan BBQ platter and ordered the beef brisket as our meat choice along with cole slaw and mashed potatoes. The brisket wasn't the best I have ever had but it still was very good. The cole slaw and mashed potatoes were... More

A local recommended this place. It is a bar dedicated to fire fighters. We had the best smoked wings we have ever had. They were tender and cooked to perfection. No need for any sauce. The pulled pork was tender, juicy and flavorful. The rib fell off the bone. The Brisket was good but a little dry. The chicken was... More

Perfect! Feels like you are walking into an old firehouse! From the firetruck as the back wall of the bar, to the tools and photos of local firefighters on the walls.....The food is fantastic and the beer is cold!!

My husband and I went to lunch at Halligan's while in Short Pump for the first time recently. The atmosphere is so neat and very well taken care of. The manager must have overheard me ask for recommendations since it was out first visit, so he surprised us with a small sample of 3 meats and 3 sides....All of which... More

My wife and I come to Richmond a few times a year to get away. We stay close to The Bottom, but have never come into this place. What a nice surprise. Shamus was there, and was very nice and helpful. We tried a few new beers that were on tap, at his recommendation. We had the nachos, and they... More

Great food and awesome employees. Nice bar especially for firemen to visit. Bring a patch or fire license plate for the wall
