Came here for the burger special on a Tuesday. Took over an hour for our burgers to arrive, and we hardly saw our waitress. Half an hour wait between beers. The food was fine, but not worth waiting that long for. Our waitress wasn't even apologetic or polite and could be seen chatting with her friends rather than doing her... More

We went for dinner and a drink. We waiated iver 30 min for food. The fish was so overdone that my colleagues couldn't eat the outer portion. I asked for gravy and it took so long that I finished my meal. The waitress - who told me she was the manager - then rolled her eyes and literally stomped off.... More

We stopped by to wait for the Yuk Yuks show. I was surprised by the great service and one of the best beet salads I have ever eaten. My husband also enjoyed his craft beer and wings.

Terrible Service. My friends and I were very disappointed with our experience at Hooley's, and was shocked by how unprofessional the staff was. The staff all looked bored or angry, and was not polite. Security guard also made inappropriate comments to myself and friends. There are many better and friendlier places in Ottawa to go to; I would not recommend... More

The waitress was sweet, pretty and worked her butt off. She put the game on that we wanted to watch and then began to serve the great tasting food. Mozza Nugs were outrageous (dipping sauce was okay) and then the wings were better than one could imagine - great with an ICE COLD beer. Place starting getting crowded around 9PM... More

Monday nights they have a nice big crowd of friendly people (a lot of frats and sororities hang out here) because of their cheap wings. I go with my friends because they like the good deal and the chill vibe, however as a vegetarian I had very little choice. I ordered the potato tots and they took 75 minutes to... More

Because the place was crowded they crammed people into long tables. Even though you were sitting beside your partner it was difficult to hear over the noise of the crowd and the TV.

I only go to Hooleys for their Monday Wing Night but it's one of the highlights of my month when we go. The many flavored wings they offer is one of the main reasons I love it. Matching it with the many different kinds of beer they have just make it even better. The only thing I don't like very... More

Hooley's is overall very average - average pub food, average prices, average service. It's location is nice, and a good place to hang out with a group of friends for drinks, but if you're looking for delicious food, it's not your best bet.

I went to Hooley`s because Yuk-Yuks had a show there in the basement. The entertainment was excellent, even if it was amateur night, and the Newcastle Brown went down very well.
