“Nice Irish Bar near the beach”
Review of Hennessey's Tavern

Hennessey's Tavern

Nice dark wood, casual place in the center of town. 5-10 minute walk to the beach. Seal Beach is a great town for strolling, having a beer, and then strolling to the next place. Hennessey's is a nice place to eat. Mid range prices, good burgers, seafood and steaks. Prices are reasonable. Brunch is good here.

Just alright. Place was empty and it was a Monday at 5. Server seemed annoyed that she had to take our order. Made no attempt to explain happy hour specials or anything for that matter. My husband and I split a sandwich which was fine but overpriced. My Irish Coffee was nothing I'd go back there for. For five bucks what did I expect? Location is their saving grace. Doubtful we will return but maybe it was just an "off" night.

Commercial Irish type bar, nice if you are looking for a drink away from the other tourist traps
tried the hamburgers ok,place gets very loud has limited Irish and craft beers, and a little pricey.
The service was good, but do not expect and Irish experience, no warm hospitality or Music here, just pay eat drink and leave. Parking is a nightmare during the weekends
