Been going there for years don't Think it's as good as it used to be. Prices getting a little pricey and I don't make the sliders as good as they used to.

Outside patio with firepit cannot be beat for a glass of wine or pint of Guinesss. Staff was nice enough...but the Happy Hour food fell flat. And I tried them all...Meatball Sandwhich, Crab Cakes, pizza, Ahi, Potato Chips covered in something and the Quesadilla.Not one did I enjoy and not one would I order again. The Ahi probably came closest to descent, but it sure didn't make me want to try anything else on the menu...or rush to return.

Every town needs a dive bar (or two), but at least at Hennessey's they try to cater to the better "caliber" of crowd. I love the taster trios they offer, and they're always able to provide advice on new liquors or beers if you're looking for something new on the craft scene (or just simply don't know what hard alcohol to have.) There are patios and firepits for casual social dining, too.

Hennessey taverns a cool little local pub right in the heart of the ritzy La Jolla neighborhood there's a really cool fireplace that you can sit around in the front and then there's a nice long bar that's right next-door there's a couple different bars here actually and in the back there's a really cool back bar area as well. They have great happy hour munchies and awesome beers come check it out.

This is a local dive bar but it's great for locals and tourists that we don't want to deal with the touristy attraction. Them o'clock clock is a great burger with ground beef and an egg.
