This place on the 17th Street Farmers' Market is my home pub when in Richmond. It may be small, but it has A LOT going for it.
The firefighter theme and decor is the first thing you notice (I learned that a 'halligan bar' is a firefighter's tool, and they have one hanging on the wall) - hard to miss the half-a-firetruck that makes up most of the back wall behind the bar!
Very friendly, neighborhood pub vibe, but all are welcome. The staff is always friendly and accomodating, and there's a really eclectic crowd that frequents The Halligan.
You wouldn't think it, looking at the size of the kitchen, but the food is very, very good. Great bbq and wings, and they make their own pickles, which are worth the trip by themselves, as far as I'm concerned. Make sure to try the corndog bites, too.
Given their size, there's not a lot of beers on tap, so you're not gonna have a big craft beer experience here. There are plenty of places in Richmond to do that, but not many places to have the sort of experience you'll have at Halligans! Whether you're having a drink after work, a weekday lunch, or just hanging out on the weekend, you want to give this place a try!

Dont be discouraged by the outside appearance the food here is amazing. We tried the Battalion Burger, The Chief, and the Memphis Chicken sandwich with fries and an order of hard sleeve cheese.. the portions are huge and my favorite was "The Chief"..

Eat here you wont regret it, the staff is super friendly....

We had a delicious lunch here today. We had friendly service and received a good value for our dollar. The slaw that we ordered with our burger was exceptionally good.

Nice place downtown that may get lost in the shuffle. Great BBQ and cold beer what else could you want? Service was fast and friendly. Got the pulled pork platter and it was delicious and hot with great sauce. Plan on walking or get an Uber to drop you off but it'll be worth it.

It looks very divey inside but service was great and the food was really awesome. The brisket sandwich was juicy and full of flavor, and the hush puppies with sweet butter were wonderful. Prices are very reasonable and service was very attentive. I definitely plan to go back.
