This is the place where my girlfriend and I made things official. The food is good for bar food and the music at night is awesome. It's a great place to watch the game and for late night drinks. The drink specials are always awesome!

We stopped by to wait for the Yuk Yuks show. I was surprised by the great service and one of the best beet salads I have ever eaten. My husband also enjoyed his craft beer and wings.

Terrible Service. My friends and I were very disappointed with our experience at Hooley's, and was shocked by how unprofessional the staff was. The staff all looked bored or angry, and was not polite. Security guard also made inappropriate comments to myself and friends. There...More

The waitress was sweet, pretty and worked her butt off. She put the game on that we wanted to watch and then began to serve the great tasting food. Mozza Nugs were outrageous (dipping sauce was okay) and then the wings were better than one...More
