We had just arrived into town and went out on a walk in search of a late lunch. We landed here. It definitely has a sports bar feel to it. The staff were pleasant just not very attentive. It was not even a busy time...More

I guess no one reads these reviews that works there, because some things don’t seem to change. Little things that tend to bother, like sending back cold French fries, wilted salads, and dirty utensils. Nice service people and friendly bartenders, but if it weren’t for...More

We went for dinner on a Friday night. The inside was setting up for a band so we ate on the outside patio. The inside decor and carpet is tired and could really use a refresh. The outside is definitely better kept up. There was...More

For a "pub" this place does an outstanding job of providing great service and really solid food (especially breakfast). My most common experience is breakfast, but I have eaten lunch and dinner there too. $5 greyhounds and bloody marys on the weekends are outstanding.

Good sandwich and solid salad. Good selection of beers and numerous happy hour specials. Service ok, but not great. Others in the group were more impressed. (And why is it with the fascination with Chive tv?)

I have visited Hennessey's periodically for a quick meal. Lately, I've noticed a disturbing pattern across several hostesses and bartenders. If I pay with cash, I have been shortchanged the last several visits. This pattern has occurred across several table hostesses and a bartender during...More
