As yuppies and hipster doofuses are taking over previously mixed ethnic neighborhoods and driving out the old crusty residents who made life interesting Hooligans is still a great place to have a beer. Not as many bar brawls and stabbings as years ago, but still...More

The place was a total local dive bar. Old school feel, taps on the wall, old pictures and plenty to choose from. Great selection of true craft beers from Wisconson

Mark B who owns and runs Hooligan's is a lovely bloke who has been behind the bar "forever" - all of the workers in the joint are lifers and make great wings/fries/burgers and so much more. We stop in every time we are early for...More

OMG. Food was terrible with a capital "T". We ordered several cheeseburgers, all were burned to a crisp. Also ordered the Chicken and BLT sandwich, but there was NO chicken on the sandwich, the avocado was minimal and over-ripe and the bread was soggy. The...More

We stopped at this interesting-looking establishment while touring Milwaukee. It's not a very big place, and since was a perfect day, we opted to sit outside. We were waited on right away, and the waiter exhibited a real "can-do" attitude (willingness to accommodate any requests...More

We'll be back. Food and service were very good. We had the brisket sandwich and the Irish Tacos. The I Tacos were GReat - I plan to get them again next time.

While the service was good, we found the food to be bland, which was surprising given the sandwich I ordered (the chicken pepperoni) had many ingredients on it. My husband ordered the Milly Beef and it was bland too. He felt the beer cheese had...More

I've gone to Hooligan's many times in the last 35 years but it's really in the last 10 years or so that I think its really been more than just a local watering hole type of place. In that time span they always have had...More

By far my favorite bar food in the area. A notch above normal bar fare and probably one of the best burgers in town. Great beer selection and the outside patio, while on a busy street has some great people watching. Consistently great with quality...More
