Our food was delicious! I had the Reuben which features home brined corn beef brisket with a side of Mac and cheese. This was the best Reuben I have ever had and the Mac and cheese was amazing! My daughter had the Guinness beef stew in a bread bowl and said it was fantastic. We will definitely eat here when we visit Erie in the future.

The theme of the restaurant is unique enough that I enjoy visiting just for the atmosphere. My meal was great both times I have visited, which is another reason I would suggest it. The price tag is a bit on the high side and it was a busy Valentine's evening the second time my wife and I visited, but it was still worth the drive.

Glad we made a lunch reservation.

Lunch specials had lots of choices.

Buffalo chicken dip is a must to try.

Was noisy but it was during lunch and busy.

Staff is super nice. The molly's tots are delicious and when I got the fish and chips it was like they gave me the whole fish! Christmas decorations were up and looked nice. It was very cozy and relaxing. Their basement where the bathrooms are look like they're out of a David Lynch movie... but in a good way.

Food was very good. We went with a diners card that allowed for one free meal of equal value when purchasing a meal. The menu nor our server indicated that we must purchase an entree to be eligible, we ordered sandwiches which were equal in cost. It did not dampen the experience but they should make that known to owners of the dining card.

Food was great, atmosphere excellent, beer very good. Service was also very good. The only downside to the place is the noise and echo. When the place gets to be around half full the noise level becomes very high and annoying. I found myself shouting so my wife could hear me across the table.

The pretzel appetizer as well as the rueben egg rolls were delicious. We also enjoyed the whiskey flights! Reubens were tasty and piled high with corned beef! Potato leek soup was creamy and filling. Beautiful architecture and ambience. Friendly service!

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 :-)

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.

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.
