I love Muldoon and we had a wonderful dinner, and a fun evening
I prefer a booth in the dining room. The table was too small and in the middle of all the serving activities.
Thanks.

I have eaten at Muldoon’s probably 50 times or more….not an exaggeration. Last night, I ordered the fish and chips — which I have ordered several times. In the past, I had a problem finishing the meal. I’m not certain, but it seems like I used to get four or more good sized pieces of fish. Last night, I got two tiny little pieces. Very disappointing. The person I was with got the corned beef and cabbage. Similarly, very very small portion. Honestly, I was the biggest promoter of Muldoon’s, but I don’t know that I will be any longer.

My long time friend and I had our early Christmas lunch. Jon was our server and he was wonderful. Friendly, quick and the food was beyond delicious. Irish stew and their bread was so good that I ordered a bowl to take home! Cozy inside or patio seating under big beautiful trees.

Food tastes good, but the downside was they forget hubby’s order, so he canceled it, other than that we enjoyed because of the craic of the stone band entertainment.

Wonderful evening at Muldoons with friends. Great to see familiar faces working there as it’s been a while since we could go there. Brought our Irish friends here for the first time and they loved it we had the Irish stew, Galway salad which was a big hit and sausage and mash. Big thumbs up for the Guinness.

We love the food, the service, and the atmosphere (we always ask for a patio table during the warm weather). The corned beef sandwich would have used a little more meat but was delicious nevertheless. Great fish and chips!

Great for a business lunch, pub plates, dinner with a group or friends! The food is great value, very good quality and always tasty. There is lighter faire if you don’t want anything heavy. The Louie salad, Cobb salad are always good. All the burgers a big, juicy and really good. Don’t overlook the Irish stew or Shepard’s pie which are always a crowd favorite. I could go on but you get the idea, just don’t let your diet get in the way of enjoying the Irish soda bread, it’s goooood!
