Diner Reviews
  • "The food was good. I had the sheppards pie and is was as good as in Ireland. The service was poor. It took 20 minutes to get someone to bring our food and then they got the order wrong so that took more time. They did take 10% off the bill for the poor service."

  • "Most of us had a really good meal ... But 1 had cold fries and a not so good burger. Atmosphere is always nice but was hot upstairs and there is only 1 bathroom upstairs - wait staff is always pleasant and tolerant of our groups. Drink specials don't have prices - so boy I was surprised to see my sangria was $9.00. But overall a good time wawa had by all. "

  • "We had a terrific waiter, a great meal, and plenty of time to talk without rushing. Just a terrific spot for casual get togethers! The house specialties are outstanding!"

  • "I met a college friend for lunch and chose the restaurant due to its location. We were pleasantly surprised at how charming the interior was. Can't wait to go back both for the interior and also to sit outside on the veranda. We had a wonderful time and totally enjoyed the ambiance!! Food was great too!"

  • "Looking for something last minute and decided to try Molly Maguire's. Ordered two Irish classics, which arrived at the table about two minutes later. OK but nothing to write home about. Service never offered to refill drinks and made an error on the check (which they readily corrected after we pointed it out). Seemed like a good bar to hang in, but not sure the food is worth the trip."

  • "The dining room was very noisy, service was slow, the waitress tried to make amends and gave a free round of drinks, the effort was appreciated. Food was OK when it finally arrived"

  • "I met two friends after work for drinks and food. While admittedly not an Irish food fan, I went for the burger which was honestly delicious. Bacon was crispy too. Burger wasn't dense and roll was perfect. Two things, my buddies got burgers and wait staff didn't ask how they wanted it done. 2nd, wait staff came over too often, sometimes warranted, but times we all had fresh drinks and were mid conversation and got interrupted to see how things were. I appreciate the attention, but also train/recognize bad times to come over. All in all. The clean restraunt and clean bathroom and great burger...I will be back many times!!! "

  • "We went based on a friends recommendation and when we went into the restaurant there was a band that was very loud, the hostess asked us if we wanted to sit downstairs or upstairs, we said upstairs as there was no way we could eat with that music blaring. Well it turns out upstairs there was a bar and being Friday night it was starting up and to make matters worse there were about 6 women having a birthday party which was very loud. Besides that the menu was very varied, I had the flatbread turkey Reuben and my wife the special Prime Rib, both were excellent and the waitress was great (we had to leave early and she accommodated us)"

  • "two of our group arrived early for a before dinner drink and when I arrived asked me to make sure we were upstairs because the band was way too loud. It was very enjoyable upstairs."

  • "Delicious Irish Dishes. Had the Trio, which was a sampler of Irish Stew, Steak and Guiness, and Shepherd's Pie. Outstanding. Service was fantastic, also."
    Dined on 4/6/2014
  • "We've been to Molly Maguire's in Phoenixville and loved it. Our Irish Nachos were okay, but chicken sandwich was borderline burnt and my son's pizza was cold. We didn't want to finish our meal. The hostess staff seemed very disorganized."
    Dined on 4/5/2014
  • "We stopped in on a Sunday evening for dinner before going bowling. We expected this to be a casual, Irish pub and were greeted by great, live Irish folk music the moment we walked in. The music and atmosphere was the best part of the evening actually. The food is pretty typical pub food and the beers are cold and delish! The interior decor was perfect - looking very authentic. The entertainers seem to just "gather" on Sunday evenings, bringing their authentic instruments to do a bit of a jam. There were about a dozen on the night we went and we were lucky enough to get a table near them. We really enjoyed it and will go back for a casual meal and hopefully have the same good fortune."

  • "Waitress was polite. 1st round of cocktails took 20 minutes. Ordered food. Apps came out cold. A friend ordered a fillet, 20 minutes later she was told they were out, so she ordered the sirloin, 5 minutes later she was told they were out of that too. Dining area was LOUD! Waitress did remove a soup from the order for not having 2 items. Really!! a soup! No manager came to talk with us. Another waiter walked passed delivering a pasta dish and his thumb was in the pasta. Who is watching these servers? Apparently no one. We will never be going to any Molly McGuires again."

  • "The Chop (PorkChops) were very dry - the ribs were a lot better."
    Dined on 3/28/2014
  • "We went to Molly Maguires for my birthday and were pleased to hear Irish musicians and see Irish dancers. The food was delicious, our server was excellent. I am definitely going back again. The only problems were the uncomfortable chairs and the fact that we had to wait 20 minutes, even though we had a reservation."
    Dined on 3/16/2014
  • "Beers are over priced. It's a bar in a small town and the prices should reflect that."
    Dined on 3/16/2014
  • "We've been there several times and the food had been great. The last two times we were there, however, we've had a guy (relatively new) who has been less than efficient and friendly. I'd still go back because the food and beer list is great. I love the atmosphere. It reminds me of the place I wasn't born: Ireland."
    Dined on 3/16/2014
  • "Local singles met up for lunch - first time having lunch there. Great place, good food. Would go back to try other dishes. Second floor was much quieter than the first floor."
    Dined on 3/15/2014
  • "We chose this location because of the Sunday Irish music from 4-8pm, along with the atmosphere. We arrived at 3pm, so the crowds were small. The menu selection was vast, including great irish dishes like shepherd's pie and cornbeef and cabbage. The big beautiful authentic-looking bar was a great addition (on both floors). The beer selection was good. The servers were all very nice, just very slow to serve despite the smaller crowd. They didn't seem to be in any hurry and needed to be reminded on a couple of occasions to replenish our beverages (which typically is the first thing they ask). They seemed to be used to a local clientele that were used to a slow and easy pace. Attire--very casual."

  • "A typical Irish pub setting good food, excellent beer selection and live traditional music For a quick drink or casual meal this is an excellent place Have been here several times and always had great service"
    Dined on 3/2/2014
  • "I ordered a gluten free meal since I have Celiac. The menu said my ribs came with mashed potatoes and baked beans. I got neither. The server said she didn't know if the mashed potatoes were GF. She offered a salad in its place. Then I remembered the beans but the server said it was only 1 side included, so I still never got those. A manager even came over and seemed just as clueless as the server as to what side items were gluten free. The ribs weren't even that good."

  • "This was my boyfriend and I's first visit to Molly Maguire's in Downingtown. We had a great time. We had reservations for 8:30pm and we were seated right on the dot at 8:30pm. The drinks were a bit expensive, but tasty. The fried pickles are the best I have ever had! I got the veggie burger, which was delicious! It was more oats/beans than veggies, but it was tasty and the bun was buttered and toasted to perfection. My boyfriend got a "Rachel" with fries and loved both parts of his meal. The bar got crowded fast, but we just went to the 2nd floor bar where there were less people. Overall, it was a good experience and we will go back."

  • "Great Irish food menu from Corned beef and cabbage to Irish Stew. Well prepared and delicious. And they know how to serve Guinness Ale and Irish Coffee. Fantastic building with several small private dining rooms.....a large banquet facility for large gatherings......and a wonderful bar if you are "parched". Not an expensive fine dining place.....but a fun evening out or place for a party. Food is well prepared and the service is very good. Love the décor.....and makes you feel like you are truly in Ireland!"

  • "Our crew went for dinner and it was a very good time for all. Food was great drinks were good and service was very good. A problem with the billing but it was taken care of promptly and with a smile Using the Open table reservation on the internet was awesome no waiting. I received an email confirming and a phone call the day of our reservation also confirming. Molly McGuires is on top of it. My hat is off to you and we will be back."

  • "Ate at Molly Maguire's with my family while passing through Downingtown, PA. The food was tasty and filling, the service was warm, and the ambience was authentic Irish Pub (without the customary haze of smoke!) I will go back on my next pass through Downingtown, PA, and will recommend it to my friends!."

  • "We have been to Macgiures a few time before without any problems. This time the food was awful. The coconut shrimp was raw. Our sandwiches consisted of unmelted cheese on beef with a stale roll and a cold cod fish sandwich. The cod fell apart. I don't think it was not cooked properly. Deep fryer issues maybe? We were offered free dessert but after the shrimp we just wanted to leave."

  • "This would have been a wonderful evening had the waiter given us some attention. He was busy helping other tables and could never find the time to follow up with us. Then when the bill came. He charged us for beer refills he never gave us. The food was great. But this server really needs a crash course in providing good customer service."
