Hooleys offers a tasty Fish n Chips plate for a good price. Pair your dinner with a pint of bass or guiness and you wont be disappointed.

Food & service were both good. All four in our party enjoyed it. Went there before going to a movie. Service was prompt and attentive. Would go there again. My husband had the corn beef tacos which he thought were very good.

What a nice Irish pub in an area full of Mexican and Middle Eastern restaurants. I had the sirloin steak dinner and my wife had the shepards pie. Both were okay pub food. Nothing fancy, but filling. Our waitress was terrific.
