Molly Brannigans Irish Pub & Restaurant
This was our first time back to Molly's since the recent renovations. It is brighter inside and very beautiful. Our server was very pleasant and attentive to our needs. We were there for happy hour and took advantage of the drink and appetizer specials --- delicious all around! We'll definitely be back :-)
Date with my lovely wife. I would rate her a 10 on a scale of 1 to 10. I am lucky to have her, I know this because she informs me of it regularly.
I like this local restaurant and it’s updated appearance. It’s a great choice for some traditional Irish fare. Shepherd’s Pie and a cod fish fry were well prepared and presented. My pork shoulder was not great, so I would say stick with the classics and their bar food menu. Dessert cookies in a cast iron pan had good flavor but were over-baked. Service was friendly and efficient. Try the Skunk & Goat ale.
We had 5 30pm reservations. Server was 10 minutes before coming to our table. Took our drink and app orders which came out in 10 minutes. Took our food order that didn't come out until 6 47pm. We had previously mentioned we had tickets for a 7 30 show. When the food arrived, it was cold and inedible. Cold Shepard's Pie, cold clam chowder, soggy and cold fish and chips. Inedible. Very disappointing. Left without eating.
Wonderful and fun place to catch up with someone. Our server was joyful and accommodating and kind. Thanks for the good service
Great new menu! Check it out.
My food was not as good as I had hoped. I ordered the Shepard's pie and it was really lacking salt / savory. Like they forgot the worchestire sauce. It also used to be served with a delicious slice of Irish soda bread which was nowhere to be found anymore. My husband's fries with his burger were cold as well. Disappointing.
The new owners increased the prices of everything but I do not feel that the quality of the food went up as well...actually quite the opposite because I used to love Molly's.
Our server was great though, friendly and accommodating. I just dont think I will be back until I hear better things about the food.
Excellent service and very good food. Would recommend to locals and visitors to Erie alike.
We had a great time at Molly Brannigans! The atmosphere was relaxing ,the food great, and the service excellent! The wait time for food was short and we easily made our later engagement with time to spare!
Six of us had dinner before the fireworks. Wonderful server, had to wait a while to get our food
Great service and the food had the authenticity of Ireland! We loved it and will be back soon!
Nice remodel, nice additions to the menu. Service was outstanding!
Thoroughly enjoyed this restaurant in downtown Erie. Truly a unique dining experience with a very diverse menu and great tasting food. The Buffalo Chicken Dip and House-made Tortilla Chips is a real standout.
Absolutely fantastic service! The all you can eat fish and chips special (on Fridays) was quite good. The drinks were wonderful. (We had the Old Fashioned, Four Leaf, and the margarita.) The space was recently remodeled and was light, bright, and remarkably clean. Definitely a great experience and looking forward to going back.
Food was very good. Menu was a bit eclectic but had many main staples as well. Oration size was on the light side.
The food was both comforting and unusual, with creative touches (Guinness reduction, smoked cocktails) that added to the experience. The wait staff was attentive. It was actually more than I expected -- I thought that the food would be secondary to the bar, but instead the bar supported the food.
Nicely refreshed venue, good service and updated menu.
Burger special a hit for Father’s Day!! Remodeling looks fabulous!
Have no complaints with the dinner. The bread and butter pudding lacked flavor and was dry.
Great Drinks & Great Food, you can tell the owners and managers truly care,keeping the food authentic with real Irish seasonings and Ingredients.
Seating in the back was very noisy. Food and service great. Hard to hear people at our own table due to noise level.
Not until it reopens with new menu. Current selections are basic bar food
I wish there had not been any reservations taken on this day because it was busy because of St Patrick’s Day. There were people who couldn’t even stand up because they were so drunk. The staff seemed confused that we had reservations. Our waitress did the best she could because it was so busy, but she was short with us. The menu was a few appetizers and no traditional Irish dishes, which is why we chose that restaurant. We were embarrassed we brought our out of town friends there, and we won’t be back.
A fun place to grab some food and drinks. Dinners were a bit pricey for what you get, but happy hour apps were very good. We will be back. Fun, historic building, good service. The reuben that went to the table next door looked fantastic. That will be my pick for next time rather than a dinner.
First time diner. Great food, great drinks and the atmosphere was totally Irish.
Hard to beat fireside seating - so cozy in winter! BF remembers the interior architecture from the 70s )
The food was just ok and for the price was not enough. We were both still hungry after we ate our entree. Nothing comes with your dinner, we had to order salads separate. Not even bread. I felt it was expensive for so little, and my husband even had to order a $10 appetizer! Our server was great. We probably will not return.
Be prepared as a diner that this is a bar. Although there are dining tables in the back its clientele and ambiance is Irish Pub/bar. The wood floors and walls are not sound muffling so all conversations at the bar carry through the building. Food was good.
They ran out of draft Guinness on Nee Year’s Eve. And charged us $6.50 (draft charge) instead of $4 for the can. Server never even told us that they were out. We knew it tasted awful but wondered why, and found out when we moved to the bar and the bartender told us. Our server seemed to be in a big hurry to rush us out the door when we wanted to stay and drink, hence why we moved to the bar. The food was pretty good, but overpriced.
We had a cozy table by the fireplace in the back room. Our waitress (Taylor) was friendly and very accommodating. She pointed out that the happy hour specials were in effect, 2 for 1 appetizers, and drink specials. We ordered drinks, a very nice red wine, and an exceptional regional craft beer, and looked over the appetizer menu. We decided to share four appetizers for our meal, and 2 cups of potato/leek soup. Everything was unique and delicious, and more than enough to fill us up. The menu has a number of excellent Irish dishes, plus several very nice pub selections. I would recommend Molly Brannigans to anyone looking for a good meal in a warm and inviting atmosphere. The back room where we dined was cozy and quiet, but the front of the restaurant is a traditional Irish pub, with all the trimmings.
