It was not crowded the evening we dined there so it was quick service. They have a great beer selection and traditional Irish dishes. There is also a good selection for vegetarians, as the couple we were dining with wanted that option. Very affordable and walkable for other activities downtown. I would definitely go back.

Our experience left us with a warm, and happy feeling. The portions were generous for lunch. Our server was very attentive and pleasant. She talked with my friend about an pending Ireland trip.

Loud with great service. Food was tasty but the steak was tough.

We arranged a dinner here for our Irish Dance school buddies before we went to see Riverdance. It was an easy walk/ bus ride to and from the theater. We made 3 reservations, 2 tables for 8 and one table for 6. We were seated near each other, and could move freely between tables to mingle. The food was delicious, a little pricey, but worth it. They had several menu items marked gluten free, but when I asked why items I would have thought to be gluten free were not, the waiter had no idea, and didn't ask for me. They have gluten free buns, but only one sandwich was marked GF. That makes no sense. I ordered the pork chop, marked GF. $20, but to die for. I passed on the liquor to cover the cost. Stayed within my Weight Watcher points too! The music was not too loud, so I could visit. The waiter was a little slow getting our checks. I don't get downtown much, but I would make this restaurant a priority if I do head that way.

This restaurant is consistently good and has a large variety of items on the menu. I love their
Irish Stew which is something hard to find anywhere else. My friend had the shepherd's pie and said it was great. I also love the beet salad with grilled salmon; it is big but very good.

I would not recommend this restaurant for a party of 6 or more. We had a reservation for a party of 10. Waited 25 minutes to get a menu and glass of water followed by another 20 minutes to take our order, only to see the two other six top tables that came in after we did were getting their appetizers. The excuse was that it was another waiter's table . The asst manager was extremely rude to us and when we complained with suggestion he said "Don't tell me how to run my business"!! Anyway, the GM came after that on his own to apologize for the slowness in the evening and shared with us they just didn't expect the amount of walk in business they got all at one time. He did adjust the bill somewhat by removing the appetizers ordered and again apologized. The crazy thing was that another group in our party was seated in another part of the restaurant that seemed very slow and were in and out in 65'. Just don't think this restaurant has their act together when it comes to organization, well trained wait staff and being efficient. Great food but lousy service. Sorry Katie Mullen's.

We saw an ad through Open Table, advertising Katie Mullen's as a good place to go before/after the theatre. It is a little hike from the DCPA, but the free mall shuttle makes it no problem. we got there for Happy Hour and enjoyed reasonably priced beers, martini, and snacks. The server recommended the mussels, saying they no longer served the scallops on the menu. It would have been helpful if he had informed me that the mussels are not part of the Happy Hour. Other than that, just fine.

We went for dinner while there were a lot of events going on in the city. I made a reservation but didn't really need one at 7 p.m. We ordered a couple starters and a drink. A good value.

The service wasn't the best. The server did not occasionally check in with is to see if we needed anything. I actually had to follow her to request something, this was after she had stopped at the table next to us a couple times.

Went during happy hour. Beer prices were good, but the food on the happy hour menu is overpriced. We ordered the poached salmon and the fried oysters. Poached salmon is basically like a scoop of tuna salad made with salmon, sitting on a bed of dry (undressed) field greens. Fried oysters were a joke for $5. You get four halves of oysters that are overly-breaded to make up for the tiny oyster meat inside. $5 for that?! For better value just order off the regular menu. We saw another table get the Irish "nachos" and it was a huge platter for $9. We should have just done that.

Excellent restaurant and bar - it's quite large, though laid out in such as way as to feel cozy. There are spaces perfect for larger groups or just a dinner for two. Service is prompt and courteous. The food was amazing - as someone of Celtic heritage, I really appreciated the traditional fare as well as some new takes on old favorites. This would be a great wrap-up to a 16th Street adventure, or the perfect pre-show meal for catching something at the Performing Arts Center. Strongly recommend this restaurant!

Grea pub atmosphere! Love the walls lined with books and the separate bar top areas. I sat at a table with a comfy couch instead of a basic booth and it was awesome. Food was delicious!

Excellent. Exceeded our expectations. We found here the delicious side of Irish food. Ambience very good, and service was excellent. We will be back.

Overall a disappointing experience since we had good times previously here. We were not seated until more than 30 minutes after our states reservation time, our food didn't reach our table until an hour after we were seated, and it was lukewarm when it arrived. I understand it was a busy night, but you shouldn't take the reservation if you can't meet the demand.

We got a reservation because we knew it would be a busy night: Friday, during Parade of Lights in Denver. We arrived at 615 and were promptly seated. Our waitress seemed new or flustered. She didn't know the beer offering, which seemed odd for an Irish pub restaurant. The restaurant soon grew quite busy. Our appetizers took 45 minutes to arrive at our table. We had to flag down the server to ask about them, twice.

The pub chips are very good! Dinner arrived 30 minutes later. In all, an hour meal lasted for almost two because the kitchen was very slow. I like Katie Mullens, but will not meet with friends there again. Perhaps lunch would be better when they aren't so busy. They don't seem to be able to handle a crowded weekend night.
