Description: Celebrating nearly 40 years, Muldoon’s is the real thing. A warm generous & friendly pub with fine pub food. Situated on the corner of Southern California’s #1 shopping - financial district Fashion Island - Newport Center, Muldoon’s is known for her two pubs, outdoor courtyard and cozy Dublin dining room filled with booths and a warm fireplace. Locals call Her their “neighborhood gem” in a neighborhood filled with excellent restaurants. But, there is only one Muldoon’s. Great for lunch, dinner, Sunday brunch and private events. Muldoon’s has a lively happy hour, live music - dancing on weekends. Celebrating St. Paddy’s Day is the best! Fit for foodies and those in the know of the greatest ales, lagers beers, mean cocktails and notable wine. Muldoon’s is the home of Sindi Rae’s Dark Chocolate Pudding when she’s in the kitchen! Her Awards: Best Pub in Southern California & the OC, Best Food, Best Burgers, Best Guinness, Best Irish Coffee & Best Staff!

We had never been to Muldoon's and we were pleasantly surprised. The atmosphere was perfect for a pub. The beer and food was delicious and the staff was prompt and accommodating. I highly recommend this restaurant and it's right next to the movie theater!

The food here is amazing. When we go to Orange County, we typically stop here every time. Their soups are incredible and the atmosphere is authentic. Definitely put this on your list of places to eat.

Went for an after dinner drink and ended up staying for a couple of hours. The service was excellent. They had a live band, "Hollywood Blonde", which was pretty good so we stayed awhile. We will be in the area again in the spring, and we will definitely go back and try their food.

Drinks that taste as good as their names, fresh tasty fish and pub plates that everyone wants to share, and a wait staff who will gladly make room for your parties' needs!

We were meeting friends to watch a band that was playing that night. We decided to go early for dinner. We sat in the outdoor patio as you walk in. It's a great setting and somewhat surprising considering what you would expect as you first enter. I had the Shepherds Pie and my wife had the Irish Stew. Both were... More

My sister had been here the night before with her DH and when I arrived in town wanted to take me an a friend. We were seated in a booth inside that had a window onto the patio. I'd say it was a little tight getting into the booth. Our waiter was very friendly and knowledgeable about the menu. When... More

Grabbed some drinks and late night food with some friends here the other night. I'd never been before although I had drive by a couple times. Server was great, drinks were a little expensive but it was definitely my type of joint. Lots of different beer on draft and a bunch of different whiskey to chose from. We split some... More

But don't just get their "wild snapper," order half and half fried fish and their HUGE fried shrimp .... so yummy! Their french fries are delicious as well! When we went there yesterday, they had a great rock band playing on the patio. We had a great time! Also, all of their food, especially their Irish dishes, are not to... More

Comfort food at it's finest! The kitchen is open until 10 on weeknights - there is patio seating, bar seating and a quaint little dining room. The soda bread is amazing! Currants and anise seed give it a unique flavor. Generous portions.

We stopped in for some drinks after a dinner at Roy's around the corner. We didn't eat so I can't comment. Big venue & I liked the open courtyard in the middle. We did have to wait a bit for service as they were fairly busy for a Friday night. Overall, just an average visit but I'd give it another... More
