    We arrived early for our reservation. Seated right away. Took 45 min to get two meals. My ahi burger was raw and cold in the middle. Super disappointing, especially for $21. My husbands fish and chips were good but only two pieces of fried fish. This was my husbands favorite restaurant and we drove from south county with a toddler for this. Not sure if it’s the new management but we won’t be back.

    Sat in the patio area. Great area with the beautiful tree right in the middle. Had 2 hamburgers and the ahi burger. All were delicious. Ahi was cooked perfectly and the seasoning was so good. Service was excellent. It's a little noisy, but that really didn't bother us.

    Muldoon’s is consistently great. Reservations are a must. We always request the inside dining room when we go with another couple. The outside patio is very fun, but also very loud, so better suited for a large party and not quiet conversation.

    It was our first time attending this restaurant based on family recommendation, food and ambiance was good but SERVICE was extremely poor. It took 45 minutes to get someone's attention to take our order. There was one waitress with so many tables and large parties, clearly it was not feasible for one person to properly take care of so many tables. We were very disappointed with the service.

    Wonderful setting. Top-notch service. We felt very welcomed for our first visit. The corn beef sandwich was to die for as were the bangers and mash. We love that we were able to bring our pooch to the wonderful, somewhat outside setting. When in the area again, we won’t definitely visit.

    Duane the manager was so accommodating and was helping the servers by taking orders to the tables. It’s nice to see a manager help out. I’ve been around and part owner of a restaurant as well as having a brother who owns one and know the value of the employees. It was Mother’s Day so it was very busy and it didn’t affect the quality of the food or service.

    Met some old work colleagues here for lunch. Food is always good (fish-n-chips are the best in OC and worth the splurge of calories), and the ambiance is relaxing whether it's inside at the cozy bar or on the patio. Never disappoints for a casual meal.

    The front desk staff was great…. Our bartender Mick was awesome. The food was served quickly & was tasty. The “band” She Disco was so bad that many people in the bar had a drink then got up and left….. just like we did. Who ever is booking needs to sit thru a set before hiring🤦🏻‍♀️

    We met a new out-of-town couple for dinner here. We both had dogs and were trying to find a good place to have dinner that was dog-friendly...we hit the jackpot with Muldoon's!! Our server, Vanessa, was very charming and knowledgeable about their menu. The food and service were both excellent! Our new friends, like us, are new dog owners and were so happy with the choice. The restaurant was very accommodating with the table and even prepared us a pet-friendly burger patty. We highly recommend Muldoon's if you bring a pet or not.

    Muldoons is a wonderful welcoming place. Food is good. Service is friendly and the ambiance is old school Irish pub. They have a comfy outdoor patio with heat lamps, plus a cozy indoor dining area and two bar/ dining areas. One with live music. Overall a good experience to eat there.
