We had a delicious lunch here today. We had friendly service and received a good value for our dollar. The slaw that we ordered with our burger was exceptionally good.

Nice place downtown that may get lost in the shuffle. Great BBQ and cold beer what else could you want? Service was fast and friendly. Got the pulled pork platter and it was delicious and hot with great sauce. Plan on walking or get an Uber to drop you off but it'll be worth it.

It looks very divey inside but service was great and the food was really awesome. The brisket sandwich was juicy and full of flavor, and the hush puppies with sweet butter were wonderful. Prices are very reasonable and service was very attentive. I definitely plan to go back.

The smoked chicken wings were a delicious pairing with the tasty draft beer on tap. Great food and a great bartender in this Irish pub, can't wait to go back for the ribs, & happy hour. Try the green beans, they're very good. Small bar but worth the stop.

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
