Sarah H: “The best BLT (and egg) I have ever eaten in my entire life. The bacon cooked well, good ratio of all ingredients, and the bread so perfectly toasted it melted in the mouth, I would highly recommend. The prices were fairly reasonable, and the waitress was very nice. The food was quick to come out and the atmosphere was very comfortable.”

Megan K: “This place was great. Really enjoyed the pretzels. They took care of us. We were seated by an air vent and we asked if they could turn the air down. They tried but it was still cold. Next thing you know they are giving me a sweatshirt from their store! I recommend going there.”

Ryan A: I absolutely love Hooligans. It’s always a must visit each time I travel to Put-in-Bay. It’s an Irish bar in theme, food and drinks. The food and service has always been phenomenal. Today our server was Tayler and she gets a major thumbs up. I usually order a Jameson and ginger ale from the bar, or the “Irish Wolfhound” drink. Everything on the menu is fantastic, from appetizers to entrees. My favorites would have to be the classic Reuben, their mashed potatoes, Bavarian pretzel sticks with cheese/bacon dip, and the Guinness burger.”

Lisa P: “We went of Hooligan’s because my daughter had a coupon from where she rented her golf cart. This place has great food and even better service! Our waiter was top-notch and took time to help with menu selection. The Irish pub themed restaurant has fun décor and it is very comfortable. The menu prices were a little high as is the norm for the restaurants on Put-In-Bay, but it was well worth it. I would recommend this to family and friends and would go again myself.”
