My parents and I visited for a fish fry - Horigan's has a great, crunchy and enormous serving! I loved their ranch dressing on my side salad (which I had earlier in the week on my grilled chicken garden salad), and the owner always makes a point to greet everyone at least once. We had a great waitress who made... More

Will never go back. The food was mediocre at best. Service was slow and inattentive. Ordered margarita pizza, store bought crust, undercooked with huge pieces of tomatoes. No seasoning at all. Portobello fries for an app was also a huge let down. Very little taste. Would never recommend to anyone

Horigans has been a piece of the community for more years than I can remember. Wonderful atmosphere, if not a bit loud when they have a full house. Perhaps not an issue for the younger crowd, but for us seniors, it can be an issue. Food from both the menu and their daily specials are all great. Fresh popcorn while... More

We had dinner last night. Service was fine until they got busy. We ordered dessert and waited without any drinks or food for 25 minutes while the owner and waitress went by us many times, not even glancing at us. We finally flagged the owner requesting the check. We were pleasant but obviously distressed. The owner did not respond to... More

We LOVE going meeting friends at Horigan's Tavern for drinks and food. The atmosphere is like a small-Irish Pub with booths and tables for eating and a separate bar. There's something for everyone of every age with daily specials. The help is always friendly and quick to respond. Extensive menu with pleasant atmosphere.

We have been going to this Irish Pub for 13 years and it's been great except for a few monorail bumps in service. The food is wonderful....especially their bacon cheese burger. They have a nice selection of beer on tap including Irish beers Genness and Smithwick's. Great place to take visitors and hungry folks after flying into the Elmira airport.

Horigan's offers the typical food you would find in a tavern however as opposed to many other taverns I've eaten in, it's very good! Wings are good as is the steak salad. The inside could use a bit of a facelift but the food is reasonably priced.

We went into Elmira on October 8th the night before we picked up our puppy from a nearby breeder. Horigans was suggested by our B&B hosts and we loved it!! It turned out to be Trivia Night with a $2 entry fee and it was so much fun. The place was PACKED and we got the last spot in the... More
