    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!

    We've been here often, and it's a great place for drinks and dinner on a Friday night. They have cider on tap, and their Irish specialties are fantastic! (One of us always gets either the Bangers and Mash, the Irish Stew, Fish and Chips or the Boxty; yum!)

    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.

    I have eaten there many times and the experience has been great, but the last time the food was just ok and the prices way too high for what we go . The music was WAY TOO LOUD !!!! Could not hear anything but the music. I'm hoping it was just one bad experience. If I have a similar experience next time, I will not keep it on my "A" list.

    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.

    Dined on 2/27/2014
    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.

    I've been to KM's 3 times and I've had 3 different Irish dishes that you won't find anywhere else. Every one is a winner. My wife loves it because they have Smithwick's on tap and we haven't seen that anywhere else in Denver. The last time we visited, the chef stopped by our table to see how things were and that's always a nice touch.

    We were celebrating a family birthday with a party of 8. The restaurant was reasonable full, but not packed with people waiting, yet service was pretty slow, especially toward the end of the meal. We had to flag down our waiter several times after waiting for refills, to order dessert, etc. Since we were also going to a movie, we had to really rush through dessert and were later than we wanted to be for the movie so we couldn't all sit together. The food was great and we had a good time overall.

    My work has visited this restaurant on several occasions for group lunches. They are the quickest, most accommodating restaurant that I know of. They tailor to flexibility, for example, when team members need to leave early and get a check straight away. Accuracy is always spot on, drinks refilled promptly, friendly staff, everything you would want. Food is delicious!

    We wanted a place that was lively yet warm and inviting, and Katie Mullins was perfect. Service was as expected on a holiday, a little slow, but we were in no hurry. A few of us enjoyed the healthy serving of fish and chips. And you couldn't pick a better place for viewing the fireworks... right outside the door!
