Sarah H: “The best BLT (and egg) I have ever eaten in my entire life. The bacon cooked well, a 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.”

Ryan A: “I absolutely love Hooligans. It’s always a must-visit each time I travel to South Bass Island. It’s an Irish bar in theme, food, and drinks. The food and service have always been phenomenal. Today our server was Taylor 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.”

Tim L: “My girlfriend and I always ask the locals where to eat anywhere we go as they seem to know the best prices and quality. Hooligans was highly recommended by a bartender just around the corner. The pretzels were amazing, my girlfriend loved her chicken breasts and I had the Chicken Philly. We couldn’t have asked for better service and it was even cooler with how pet-friendly the establishment is. Better than any Irish bar downtown Cleveland. The guy next to us had a small dog that they accommodated just as they would have a person with his own meal and water bowl. I think our meal total was $40 including the appetizer.”


Hooligans Irish Pub is located downtown on Catawba Avenue next to Put-In-Bay Town Hall in addition to the Put-in-Bay Police Department. Step inside for a fun reprieve from the downtown action. Plan your trip to Put-in-Bay today, and be sure to add Hooligans to your must-visit list!
