    We (2 couples) went here for dinner because we had a Living Social voucher. The food was very good, the staff attentive, but not overly so. We had a great experience @ Molly Maguire's & would definitely go back.

    Celebrated my Mom's bachelorette party and started with dinner here. They were very accommodating and from what I remember the food was delicious! I will definitely return when I am in the area.

    All the staff members we had contact with were nice and attentive. There was a minor wait for a table, but much shorter than expected for St Patrick's Day weekend. The food was pretty good and the Irish beer was flowing!

    This is the second time I've been here and the food is consistently good. I ordered the Shepherd's Pie and it did not disappoint...very flavorful, served piping hot, and fresh ingredients. The beer on tap is always fresh and I'll definitely be coming back.

    I went for lunch to Molly's. My reservation was for 1, so it was slightly past the typical lunch period. I cannot say how crowded it would have been at peak lunch hour, but it was half full when my friend and I went. This looks like a typical Irish pub. It was clean, and the ambiance was good. The wait staff was attentive and friendly. I had the Irish stew, which was terrific. It was loaded with tender beef, which is not always the case in other restaurants. I have not been there for dinner, but I plan to go back one evening.

    We had lunch there. The food was very good and the prices were quite reasonable. Make sure that any added items such as lettuce and tomatoes that you requested are provided. Only problem is finding the entrance to the parking lot, you have to go through another restaurant's lot before you get to this restaurants parking. When you leave you can only make a right hand turn so make sure you know your way around the area. Overall it was a good experience and the food was well worth any minor concerns.

    Our service was good, and my steak was outstanding. However, the parking situation leaves a lot to be determined. We went on a Saturday night, and had to park across a four lane road at a different shopping center. We also sat at a 2 person table a little too close for my liking to another table. Would go back for the food, but only on a weekday when it is less busy and we can park there.

    The food was good, but the service was definitely lacking. We had to ask for bread after we noticed other tables had--and it arrived after our appetizers, which got cold quickly because we never got plates to eat them on. We had to keep asking the busboy to please send our waiter when we needed cocktail refills. The sweet potato fries were served cold and had to go back. Like I said, the food was good, but the service was definitely lacking.

    My boyfriend and I originally wanted Mexican food for dinner but happened to drive by this place so gave it a try. The waiter was friendly and attentive. The food was fresh, delicious and reasonably priced. I had the chicken pot pie and the pastry top was mouth-watering. My boyfriend had the fish and chips were equally as delicious. The bonus was that if you ordered a Guininess, then you got an Guinness glass engraved with your name included in the price of the drink. We each got a Guinness and now have two glasses to remind us of the fun dining experience at this place. I'd recommend it to my friends and we'll be coming back.

    Service was excellent. Server was pleasant and very accommodating. One person in our party sent their overdone steak back and replacement was excellent. Other than that, food was good. All had an enjoyable time.

    Molly Maguire's offers a brunch buffet every Sunday for $12.95. Great deal for the price. Not the most extensive buffet but it has an omelette station and standard breakfast fare as well as some Irish specialties. Food was tasty.

    We went for brunch on mother's day. The service and food was very good. The only reason we will not be going back for brunch is because there are no eggs served at the buffet table, which was a huge disappointment. They have an omlet station but it is waitress service only. By the time you are served your eggs (which was a very small rportio) the rest of your breakfast is cold. I have never been to a breakfast buffet that doesn't serve eggs.

    Our server was very enthusiastic and friendly. The food was great. Three of us has the rack of lamb, which was excellent and cooked to proper temperature. One of us had the filet mignon stroganoff ( a special that night). The gravy was fantastic and the tenderloin tips were very tender. We will be back!
