Hennessey's Tavern Restaurant Review: Lodged in the midst of Laguna Beach’s bustling downtown area, this incarnation of Hennessey’s Tavern is a lively spot for breakfast, lunch and dinner. Much like their other locations that are peppered around Southern California, this venue is a rather upscale Irish pub featuring dark woods in 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. 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, salads and a small kids’ menu. If you’d rather head further down the Orange County coastline, another Hennessey's Tavern is situated in Dana Point.
