We went on a busy night and went for the atmosphere & great service. Be sure to make reservations. When we added an additional person to our reservation the staff was quick to accommodate us. Food was just OK.

Ultimate Irish Pub and Dining
WOW! Another fabulaous meal at Muldoon's. The food is great. The service is superb. The stmoshpere is fantastic. And, if you drink, which I don't, this place is perfect.
I highly recommend Muldoon's for a night out with your friends anytime.

Always a fun spot, especially
Always a fun spot, especially around St. Patrick's Day.
So glad we were seated inside for dinner, however, as the band on the patio was too loud and would have blown our ears out if we'd been seated outside.
The service is awesome, and as busy as they are, they always make it fun and give the best service. We eat there all the time (business lunches are great on the patio under the pretty trees too!)

Perfect patio brunch
There's nothing like the perfect fish and chips on a sunny patio on a Sunday afternoon. We try this menu item often at different establishments. We agreed: No one does it better than Muldoon's. Nicely balanced. Our server Kat was excellent.

Our favorite restaurant for 35 yrs!
We have been frequenting Muldoon's for about 35 years and have never had one problem-quite the opposite. They are always gracious, providing great service and delicious food. Their stew has been consistently my favorite dish, (as well as the soda bread) for all these years. Our children and grandchildren love it too!

Friends & Family
A great place to hang with friends & family. The waitress was fabulous. Dinner was delicious. We took our time, chatting while enjoying our spirits. There was no pressure to move us on from the table- that I really Liked! Live music and fantastic tree growing in the center of the indoor/outdoor feeling patio.

It's one of our favorite places
It's one of our favorite places to eat. Fish and chips can't be beat. Neither can the apple pie dessert! Service is always friendly and helpful.

A bit of Ireland by the sea
EXCELLENT Irish Pub atmosphere and Irish influenced food. Great Irish Whiskey list as well as a great menu for the authentic food. Mother's Day was a great day to go there and the only missing piece was the live Irish music.

Sunday Brunch was excellent!
I used to go to Muldoon's all the time, primarily as to their bar. I remember their food was pretty good, but I had no idea they did a Sunday brunch and discovered that after a Google search. They need to advertise this better, because it was great!!! Food was fresh and delicious, service was excellent, and the heated patio was a really nice setting.

We held my wife's birthday dinner at Muldoon's because several years ago we held a similar event while visiting Dublin with friends. At 5 PM on a Sunday evening the restaurant was quiet by pub standards so we had a very nice, relaxing meal. The service and food were very good. When I made the Open Table reservation, I mentioned the special occasion and the staff did pick up on that and brought a nice comlimentary dessert. A really good evening.

As a long time resident of Newport Beach, Muldoon's is truly a neighbor gem! The ambiance is terrific! Upscale Pub with a lovely dining room, 2 lively bars featuring live music regularly and a delightful patio that has heaters for cooler evenings.
The service is professional, friendly and very interested in making sure that your meal at Muldoon's is memorable!
The Irish Stew is yummy, but save room for my favorite desert. The Hot Fudge Sundae is worth skipping lunch to enjoy!

We enjoyed it- will return
We decided to have a late dinner before a movie. Perfect location. We each had different burgers. The services was fantastic.

always a favorite
Been going here forever, though we don't get down here as much as we used to. It is pub food, but good pub food. The inside dining room is charming with a dark walls and coffered ceilings and a cozy fireplace. The outdoor patio is lovely, though they've added tv screens that I don't care for. The original bar is also cozy and usually busy, but they've expanded on the other side of the courtyard with another bar and more tables. We like the original dining room. Service always good, management friendly. Very unpretentious place, compared to what's happening with the rest of Fashion Island. Great burgers!

The food and the environment (inside and out) made for a very special dining experience. HIghly recommend to those who are looking for Irish food and drink in a remarkable setting. Get there for lunch if you can because the prices on food are better for lunch than they are for dinner. Irish Stew is a must try!

High Alchohol Prices
We paid $16/glass for wine - outrageous!
Food was good

great group dinner
visited Muldoon's for a small group dinner and we were not disappointed... the wait staff were very attentive and the food was delivered quickly and hot. excellent portion size and all very tasty. ranged from the Sheperd's Pie and fish and chips to the burgers. Two of our group had the Potato Leek Soup and commented that it was excellent.

Muldoons is a great spot that
Muldoons is a great spot that I have been going to for years. The food is consistently good and hearty. The service is usually good and the ambiance is very nice. Starting the meal off with the Irish soda bread is always trouble as I usually eat too much. Its mainly Irish food, with some good ole american staples that should fill you to the brim. This time I had the Celtic combo, which was very good and I will probably repearr! Someone else got the 1/2 and 1/2 fish and shrimp with chips which they also enjoyed. Sheppards pie is always a good option, along with any of their salads.

Had a blast - great place
My husband and I went there - it was his first time there and we sat in the courtyard on a Saturday evening before it got too loud and busy. We both had a great time and enjoyed our beers and food. I would definitely recommend going there.

We had a nice dinner on a Friday night. Thought it might be packed and had made a reservation, but it wasn't overly crowded. Food was good and service friendly.

Been to Muldoon's before, but my first time for brunch. Limited selection, but they also serve the full menu. I ordered an eggs benedict with smoked salmon - fine, a little on the room temperature side but nothing too objectionable. My companion ordered the Irish stew. Both came out quickly. Service was competent and unrushed. Not the place for a brunch to end all brunches by any means, but a good solid choice.
10/13/2013 12:00:00 AM
We were tempted by the "Kinsale fish fry" which, while not very healthy, was very tasty. Easily enough food for 2, leaving just enough room for desert (and a Guiness, of course). I loved the architecture...Irish bar completely surrounding outdoor courtyard in the center of the building.
Will be back again when in SoCal.

Lunch with a friend
A rainy day lunch - Muldoon's was the perfect spot, near Fashion Island. Server suggested hot , mulled wine. So delicious we each had two!

Muldoons is a cool place to meet friends for a cozy get-together. It has great ambience. But seating in the main dining area is a bit cramped.

Yummy Comfort Food
We booked our reservation at Muldoons at the last minute and they were able to easily accommodate our party of 3. After taking our drink orders we were served warm Irish Soda Bread which was the perfect start to our meal. My husband ordered the Irish stew and was served a large steaming bowl with a rich gravy base that was loaded with veggies. My Shepherds Pie was topped with golden crusted potatoes and was perfectly seasoned. My son's fish and chips were also done perfectly, crunchy without being greasy. He especially liked the hand-cut fries that came with them. Service was efficient during our visit, attentive without being obtrusive. We would definitely visit Muldoons again.
