Enjoyed the irish food. I had the pork loin and mashed potatoes which was very good. My husband had the shepherds pie. They could have given a better helping of bread though.

This is a favorite lunch spot for our group of friends. They offer traditional Irish food as well as some American fare. Their lunch soecial of a burger and a beer for $6.99 is a hit!

Maybe it is because of a lack of restaurants in downtown Muskegon ? We arrived before 530pm with a need to leave by 7 for a concert. Not many diners at that time. The concert was bringing 2000 people, two blocks away. We were told to sit in the rather large back room/bar area as the front was reserved for... More

Took 30 minutes to get a draft beer in front of me. New, yet personable/friendly table server that management had not taken the time and effort to properly train. Food getting to table was also slow. However, good beer and good food. Tom

Average food at a fair price. I liked the old menu better that included potato soup and other "irish dishes". Service is good. Not good if you're in a hurry though.

Is Thursday fot $9.99, no seconds. The perch were on the small size, and limited, but the flavor was good. Their offerings of tap beer was commendable for a small place. The only problem, of the 8 drafts sampled (4 guys), NONE came out in a Beer Clean Glass? The result, no collar, and the beer tasted flat. The backroom... More

Weekend Buffet was very good and reasonably priced. Also enjoy the Thursday night perch special. I frequently try a flight of Irish whisky and they have several varieties to choose from. Music is played on many evenings. give it a try!

In tradition of the Irish "Public Houses", Muskegon can proudly say that it has its own "Wee bit of Ireland" to come to and have a cold pint and great Irish fare. Hennessy's Irish Pub & Restaurant has a lively atmosphere with traditional Irish dishes along with other worldly cuisine. With 24 beers on tap and 20 Irish whiskeys, Hennessy's is the place to enjoy the perfect pint or any of a wide variety of cocktails. The food is always made from fresh ingredients and local ingredients whenever possible. This is all made better with warm fireplaces and dark woods that accent a festive location for merriment. Our ambition is to be the chosen place to gather with family and friends to share great food, drinks, conversations, and lively music in a cheery and pleasant environment.
