Great food and service. The Ruben was very good they have real corn beef. The slaw was outstanding. The onion rings made it all but the bread pudding. To die for. I will return.

I've eaten a few times here while on business. Food is generally very good and happy hour prices on drinks are very reasonable indeed. Guiness is served properly and always tastes good.

You can't beat Galway Hooker Irish pub if you can eat between four and six. Almost all the appetizers are half price, and several of them are a meal in themselves like the nachos or the Irish potatoes. I personally love all the seafood appetizers....More

The corned beef Reuben was absolutely delicious, lean corned beef, not fatty, delicious sandwich and fresh cut fries, my husband loved his chicken and waffles. Service was great, great outside sitting area.

Service was poor. Server never introduced himself. Just said what do you want to drink. Finally 10 minutes after drinks we were able to order an appetizer. We ordered the nachos which were dried up because they had sat under the heat lamp for so...More

I didn't really see an "Irish" flair when I was there either, no "costumes, talks". I think it's more of a name but a great place to eat.
