Fabulous place - Great way to see the Kentucky Derby. The space is kind of small for such a loud band, which made it impossible to talk. Otherwise, we love Molly's and it's our go to place!!!!

Service is good. Food is good. There was live music which is good but a bit loud The only downside was, like most places, a useless mask is required. Being made to feel like a mindless sheep is not pleasant.

Well the drinks were definitely overrated and pricey not worth it at all. The oysters were a good value @ 1.50 a piece 1 until 3. I see how so cheap due to being extremely small. Some were bearly a morsel in my mouth. Chicken sandwich well my friend showed and described the tomato slice bigger than the chicken breast. 57.00$ won't be back...

I was here close to St Patrick's Day so it was busy but I enjoyed my visit. It was decorated very nicely & I got to sit by the fireplace. The staff was friendly & attentive. I got the corned beef & cabbage which was very good. The beer is very good & there's a good selection. I highly recommend a visit to Molly Brannigans during a visit to Erie!
