The restaurant is an authentic Irish Pub, built by the Irish Pub company in Dublin, Ireland. The Pub was built piece by piece in Ireland and shipped to its current location. The balance between its Irish history credible atmosphere and Chef Steve Jordan’s menu creations, the Galway Hooker has become a great destination for many tourists and a mainstay amongst the locals in the Lake Norman area. The menu is a fusion of the traditional and most popular Irish dishes, while offering the most unique and fresh seafood options anywhere. A wide variety of one of a kind appetizers, and Lake Norman’s best burgers. Bring an appetite! Opened in 2002, the Galway Hooker offers live music nightly, a Comedy Zone in the 4000 square foot facility adjacent to the restaurant, and Waterford Hall, a rustic and spacious banquet room to host any event, from 25-200 people.
