    Don't expect fine dinning, but the food is good and service was fast. Fish and chips was particularly good. The mussels happy hour dish--not so much. Good beer selection, little thin on wines. Close to Bellco theater and other downtown Denver locations.

    Waited 20 minutes after being seated for a waiter to acknowledge us and offer water. Service remained slow throughout our experience. Crusted chicken was burnt. They offered dessert, we chose a sundae. It was 2 cups whipped cream and 1 small scoop of ice cream.

    Choice of indoor or large outside patio is wonderful. Roasted beet and Salmon salad is always very good. The Irish Stew is amazing and not a thing you find everywhere. We had the pumpkin cheesecake that was a great treat. Consistently good.

    It was very interesting that we made a reservation and they did not have a table ready for us. The manager?/asst. manager? who was working was very overwhelmed. It was also interesting to us that there was a 45 minute wait on a Friday night and the entire back part of the place sat empty!! Our waitress was first rate. The food was okay, it came out quicker than we expected which was a plus since we had to wait for out table.

    As soon as we walked in we were greeted with a very friendly hostess with an Irish accent; nice touch. The entire wait staff was welcoming and pleasant. The staff members had only good things to say about the dishes we ordered which they had obviously tried. I had the fish and chips which was not in the least bit greasy and the fish was light, moist and delicious. I also enjoyed their take on the Caesar salad. It had a much lighter dressing; such a nice change (a Caesar vinaigrette, instead of the traditional heavy Caesar dressing). Great place with a pleasant atmosphere. We will definitely be back.

    While in Denver this past week (First week in October) my group wanted to take advantage of the weather and eat outside, as we felt the opportunity at home in New England would not be there when we returned form our business trip to Denver. Staff and wait staff were able to accomadate a large party and we were able to enjoy the food, weather and people watching while in Denver. All of my group were very satisfies with their meals.

    Our waitress only stopped by the clear plates before we were finished. She never came back to see how our meal was, or if there was anything else we needed, or fill our glasses.....or bring the check. We were on our lunch hour and were late getting back - and charged PTO for that 15 minutes. I will not go back.

    Excellent Irish fare! Great tasting dishes and delicious lamb. The beverage selection was great, and we thoroughly enjoyed LHB's Milk Stout on nitro. It was the perfect place for "date night", and though it was a Saturday night, it was not crowded or noisy (actually, it is likely to be more energized during the week). We are from a rural area, so we typically don't like crowds anyway...so this was perfect.

    Patio service was no good. My party sat for 20 minutes while the server walked around to all the other tables and didn't even give eye contact. When we tried to get her attention she would rush away or turn around. We moved inside and then had the greatest experience ever! I wish I remembered the name of our server inside, she was amazing and had only been working there a few days. The start wasn't good, but the ended on a high note.

    I took a new client there for lunch on a Friday afternoon. It was quiet enough so that we could speak and hear each other. The service was fantastic and the food was even better! I have found my new lunchtime getaway. I also noticed the available libations,making this a destination, the pub, a place that I look forward to going to after a long day at work! I recommend Katie Mullens to all! I will let everyone in my office know about my wonderful experience including our service, fast and tasty lunch the ambiance, staff, and cleanliness.to those within walking distance this is the place to go for an all around escape for luck or after work treat, I imagine happy hour to be as good as lunch! Order a cold beer for me and tell them I sent you!

    My husband recently received his Master's and we wanted a fun place to have lunch. Katie's has a great menu and good selection - ranging from light fare to full entrees. Great desserts if you still have room...and of course beer. Irish beer. Music is sometimes a bit loud but what do you expect, it's an Irish pub. Daytime is quieter than evenings. Difficult to get in to on weekends but live band and a hoot! Really fun, and good food.

    I read the reviews and was excited to go to an Irish bar in Denver. I got there and was seated in a good spot, but I had a hard time getting served. I guess single diners aren't really welcome. The service was awful. I will say the ambiance was great and so was the food. I was looking forward to eating and listening to Irish/Celtic music but all they played was classic rock. I was very disappointed and wish I had eaten elsewhere.

    Restaurant was able take reservation for group on busy holiday wknd. I was afraid this place like many others would be too over crowded, or the service would be lacking due to the busy holiday. They had our table ready and waiting, our waitress was friendly and we never waited for service. Not too crowded, not empty. We were sat right away. Great atmosphere, service, food, prices. I will definitely be coming back.

    My boyfriend and I tried Katie Mullens during Restaurant Week in Denver, and we have absolutely no regrets! The dimmed, yet relaxing ambiance was perfect for an intimate dinner and service was fantastic. We both tried the Murphy's Red on tap and it was great! Guinness French Onion Soup as an appetizer was fantastic! My boyfriend ordered the lamb skewers, which were tender and juicy, and I ordered the Pork Chops, which were smothered in a mango chutney that was perfectly sweet and savory. For dessert we tried the Fried Bread Pudding and it was phenomenal. I only rate a 4/5 because the dishes were rather pricey considering how cheap the sides would truly cost. Overall we had a fantastic experience and will be going again.

    I found Katie Mullen's on OpenTable as I was both in Denver and hungry for some Irish food. I walked the short distance from the hotel to Katie's to find a restaurant that had excellent decor and was moderately busy for lunch. After a very brief wait, I was seated by a window. I proceeded to order Scotch eggs, the chicken and bacon boxty, and some beer for lunch. The Scotch eggs were made perfectly. I chose the boxty for the main item because I wanted to try to traditional Irish food. Well, I wasn't disappointed! The chicken and bacon boxty was excellent and immediately made me want to try to make this myself at home. I also tried two beers, the Katie Mullen lager and a Boddington. Both very good. The service was also very good.

    The Salmon (with beets) Salad is really wonderful. The salmon is grilled and hot and the combination of ingredients in the salad is very balanced and good. My friend thought it was one of the best salads she had gotten in a long time. The noise level was moderate so we were able to converse without shouting. I like the décor with all the dark wood. Another item I love at Katie's is the Irish Stew; consistently delicious and not something you find at other restaurants.
