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 a film at The Oriental Theatre - saw I am Not Your Negro yesterday about... 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 buffalo wings were not cooked properly and underdone. The French fries with every $11 item... 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 we had). There were four of us, and our meals were terrific! We later told...

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 a weird texture. On the positive side, the cheese curds were good and the beer... 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 good food and a creative menu. The current owner Mark also has a good eye... 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 of food and service. Go for happy hour and get 1/2 off apps (highly recommend... More

When I arrived, the service was instantly amazing. We were greeted right away with a pitcher of water. It was a very hot day and the waitress made sure the pitcher was constantly full. I ordered a Irish dip, a spin off of a French dip with corned beef. It was very flavorful with tender corner beef. Once again, we... More

My family was in town for the day and we wanted to find a good restaurant in walking distance. The service when we arrive was super quick and very friendly. I had the Irish drip which one of the better dip style sandwiches I've had. They also have a very wide variety of beer. Overall, great experience and will most... More

Hooligans is a corner bar with a fantastic vibe, large outdoor seating area in a fun part of town, and a dark wood interior. The crowd is eclectic. The bar is legit, with a ton of craft beers on tap and a full specialty cocktail menu. The friday fish fry was fantastic, cod, walleye or perch, your choice. I went... More
