Hooligans Irish Pub has Fantastic Food and Awesome staff! This location was the highlight of my trip!! The chicken sandwich I got was amazing! It possibly was the best I've ever had! The atmosphere and bar are beautiful! Plus, the staff was beyond awesome! Our Server, Kim, and General Manager Megan, gave us reliable advice on where to go for fun. One of our favorite put-in-bay restaurants

Excellent dinner in Put-in-Bay We appreciated our dinner at Hooligans Irish Pub. I had a Guinness, and my wife had a Smithwick's. Both were very pleasant (as they should be for $9). We shared an appetizer of cheese dip with both chorizo and bacon. It arrived with fries for dipping. A perfect starter. Service was speedy. My wife had the salmon dinner, and I had the Shepherds' Pie. Both were good. We would go back.

More than pub food This week, we thought to try Hooligans Irish Pub for dinner. We had been there in June this year for a libation at the bar and liked the surroundings. And close to the end of the season in late September, we were glad to find a place open for dinner. He had the Hooligan's Pub Burger and asked if they could replace another bun instead of the toasted pretzel bun. I ordered the Buffalo Chicken Salad with balsamic vinaigrette.

He liked the burger and wondered if all of Put-in-Bay businesses knew the mystery to good burgers 🙂 My salad was well presented with a nice choice of ingredients (hard-cooked sliced egg, bacon bits, diced red onions, chopped tomato, bleu cheese crumbles, croutons, and sauced chicken chunks) were placed in tidy rows on top of the bowl of mixed greens, with the vinaigrette placed on the side.

The Buffalo chicken packed a punch! It might be too tangy for some people, so be forewarned. I appreciated it in the salad with the other flavors - tasty! Our waitress was attentive and got more tea and soda without asking for it. Overall, a fantastic dinner visit at Hooligans Irish Pub. Close to put in bay hotels

Hooligans Irish Pub Potato skins were outstanding They Also had several craft beers and drinks. Our potato skins were so delectable we could have had another round. It's a lovely spot to stop for a drink and food before touring the Island. Even have a drinking spot for the dogs.

YES!!!!!!!!! The most fantastic fish and chips I've ever had. Tender, flaky fish, light brown excellent, as if they purify the oil daily! The chips weren't just fries. They were cut like little wedges and crisp like a potato chip. With two Irish car bombs, I'm glad I was walking distance to Hooligans Irish Pub from the Edgewater Hotel!

Short holiday vacation We stopped at Hooligans Irish Pub. Mariah was an excellent server. For lunch, after a morning of sightseeing, we got the fish and chips, which were very accommodating portions we could not finish. Their pickle slaw is fantastic; the service was excellent food was hot would return a great selection of beers and spirits

Beautiful Bar! While we didn't get anything to eat at Hooligans Irish Pub(we were bar hopping), we watched the food coming out, and it looked fantastic! Seating on the front deck permitted us to relax and determine our subsequent plan for the day. The island grocery store is across the street to stockpile things you might require.

Outstanding dinner! We had a delicious meal at Hooligans Irish Pub. I had shepherd's pie and it was awesome. The salad was also excellent, so fresh. My wife only had the pretzel sticks, a great snack. We will stop back here again when we're in town.

Hooligans Irish Pub is like a side trip to the limerick! We were there on a scalding hot Saturday afternoon. Charming location in the middle of chaotic downtown. Irish tunes were just loud enough so that you could still have a conversation. Friendly people. good value. Don't miss the confessional cubicle divider in the men's room (Have a peek if you're a female). Nice! Went there because of many good reviews hooligans irish pub

Birthday Dinner at Hooligans Irish Pub We moved to hooligans pub because my daughter had a voucher from where she rented her golf cart. This place has excellent food and even more suitable service! Our waiter was top-notch and took the time to help with the menu selection. The Irish pub-themed eatery has fun décor and is very relaxing. The menu prices were a little high, as normal for the restaurants at Put-In-Bay, but it was pleasingly worth it. I would suggest this to friends and family and will go again myself.

Favorite Restaurant on Put In Bay! Hooligans Irish Pub! My second trip to Hooligan's, and it was actually more pleasing than the first. I always love the Pretzel Sticks and Perogies! We had an Irish Coffee this trip to help warm us up! All three items were tasty and highly recommended! On both visits, we sat out on the deck to enjoy the atmosphere while we enjoyed our food and beverages. The staff was very friendly and helpful as well.
