Arrived to Hermosa at 11:00 pm and assumed everything would be closed. Hennessy Tavern had late night dining with music in a Thursday night.

After watching the sunset over the Hermosa Pier we wandered over to Hennessey's for dinner. We shared the Shepards pie and a steak sandwich. Both dishes were very good.

Stopped in late. It was still open but empty so we got great service. Hubby ordered a burger and he loved it. I ordered Irish Nachos. Made with potatoes which were hot but tasked old. Like reheated. But menu for breakfast looked interesting and will be back to try that.

The view and location is fantastic and definitely good for going for a few drinks and appies at Happy Hour but otherwise the food is not so good.

After some time on the beach, my wife, daughter, grandaughter, and I had time for dinner at Hennessey's, just off the beach. We enjoyed our outside table as the sun went down. What you need to know, is my wife said the Shepherd's Pie was the best she had had in ages... and she is Scottish. So if it's good... More

Had a decent lunch on the patio on the ground level. Nice atmosphere and informal. First come first serve. They were taking names for seats upstairs. Friendly server, fast service. The food was just OK. Don't think that they have changed the menu in years. The burger was average. The calamari were pretty decent. Average pub food, but I guess... More
