Hennessey's Tavern Restaurant Review: Lodged in the midst of Dana Point's compact downtown coastal area, this edition of Hennessey’s Tavern is a lively spot for breakfast, lunch and dinner. Much like its other locations that are dotted around Southern California, this venue is a somewhat upscale Irish pub featuring dark wood on the tables, chairs and bar, as well as complementary green-leather banquettes. The long list of Irish brews on draft is a big draw for the bar crowd, and fans of brown liquor may flock here for the serviceable list of Irish whiskeys. Breakfast is mostly an American affair, with some Mexican (huevos rancheros) and Irish (corned beef hash and eggs) options as well. For lunch and dinner, try the traditional shepherd’s pie or meatloaf. There’s also a good selection of California-style sandwiches, burgers and salads, and a small kids’ menu.
