Kenneally's is a true Irish Pub that also happens to serve the best pizza in town. Family owned and operated, with friendly staff and patrons and comfortable inside and outside seating, all of Kenneally's food is actually very good (homemade potato chips are a personal favorite). There are TVs located throughout the bar for whatever sports events are going on,... More

Always love going to Kenneallys when back in Houston. Great pizza - nice outside area - lots of beer on tap and decent selection of bourbon.

It's convenient for us and offers a good variety of foreign and domestic draft beers and ales. Some bottles too but who cares ? We don't usually eat there but last time we did, enjoyed some good " pub grub." Believe it was some kind of sausage balls, etc. Not exactly gourmet cuisine but hey, you're in a pub !... More

I would not ever recommend this place to anyone again. I recently moved to Houston from STL. This was the only place where I thought they had decent pizza conveniently located down the street from me. I ordered a pizza to-go and jalepeno poppers. My boyfriend went in to use my card to pay and the only receipt they gave... More

Get the shamrock special, then get another. This is by far the best thincrust pizza in Houston. Enjoy it with some drinks, then get one more!!!

$6 for valet parking and $10 each for entrance. the bar area was packed as was the outside bar area but very few chairs and tables outside especially in the big area in front of the bandstand. We were very disappointed in the band because they didn't play any Irish music, just country in Western. and there was no place... More

You're gunna think I'm full of it. But It's true. This Irish pub has THE best pizza in Houston. Take it from an east coast pizza buff. I travel a lot and seek out these joints. One of the coolest pubs I've been to in a while, mainly because of the staff (Jay), great beer and good viddles, but I... More

It is exactly what it markets itself as, a pub. Kenneally's has a great selection of import beers, leaning to the UK of course as well as really good bar food. Their pizzas are really good especially when paired with a three stout buzz.
