Pretty good. I love going here. They've got good food for pretty affordable prices and a nice quiet atmosphere.

I was not a happy camper on my last two stops at Horrigans. 1 - ordered a "patty Melt" - medium rare and it came VERY OVER DONE!! Tried to eat it but couldn't because it was too dry. Talked with management and the brought me a new one and made the comment that "it's difficult to find good people... More

Visiting family and saw reviews on Yelp were high so decided to try. Must have a large family or many regulars or friends doing review because not a 4 star place. Server was average, but not very concerned with our experience as she never asked how food was. Also any place that charges an added .50 to have lettuce on... More

This pub has a great setting and normally very good service. The owner is there most days and she's very nice. The food is decent and the prices aren't bad either. It's a favorite among my friends for lunch dates. Great for casual business meetings as well.

This is an outstanding pub. We felt right at home though we were not locals as most of the other patrons seemed to be. I ordered a salad, my husband the shepherds pie. Both were really good. Staff was very friendly. You will feel welcome whether you just have a seat at the bar or have a seat for diner.

You will think you are in Ireland when you stop in Horigans for a drink, or something to eat, or both. You can have a Guinness or Harp on tap, a great Reuben, fish fry, whatever, and you will be more than satisfied. The staff is efficient and friendly and the food very good. It's a great place to visit.

A staple to the strong city of Elmira. Many local families will remember the yesteryear of this tavern. Including Irish drinks specials, ever changing specials, and open year round sans Christian holidays. Always a good time !

We stopped in for dinner last night and the food & service were, as always, fantastic. Dad had a shrimp salad wrap and Long Island Clam Chowder. Mom had a salad & a huge French Onion soup liberally topped with melted cheese. And I tried the Carnitas Chimichanga. Delicious! Since it was their anniversary, we each had dessert. Mom had... More

This place had the best fries in town. I love their fries! The reuben sandwich is really good too. It's a nice local place with local foods and a friendly helpful staff. I will definitely be back many times!
