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!

Solid Irish Pub

Excellent menu, love the comfort food choices! Great place for a Black and Tan, can have a decent nightlife crowd.

There are several dishes here that are very hard to find in most restaurants because they are very Irish/British in nature. They are well-done here and Muldoons has a great selection of items. The servers are very friendly, too. Good service and good atmosphere.

The pub has several rooms including al lively bar that often has live Irish music. There is also a patio and a quiet dining room with a beautiful fireplace. The traditional Irish menu has some surprises too. Service with the Irish welcome and wit is always friendly and helpful. Of course bangers and mash or Irish stew are our choices... More

If you want pub food, beer and atmosphere you'll feel very comfortable here in a very authentic Irish Pub. The best thing here IS the service. We were lucky to get Scott as our waiter. He has the right amount of humor, and attention to detail that one would hope for. Prices are a little on the high side but... More

Interesting menu. Has traditional Irish fare but some tasty additional menu items that give this pub an edge. I tired a combination drink with two of my favorite drinks - champagne and Guinness. Quite tasty. The bubbles take a bit of the earthy edge off the Guinness and add effervescence to the concoction. When another guest's order walked by, it... More

Went with friends to our favorite pub. Great atmosphere. Service and pub grub are good. They have traditional food as well such as Irish stew,fish and chips,corned beef and cabbage, and roast beef. Sandwiches,salads,and GREAT hamburgers. Entertainment on certain nights,we are always there to be with friends for conversation so can't comment on that. Will go again! Try it.

A long time Newport Beach restaurant next to movie theaters.Service is ok, but the food is mass produced. For example, the corned beef was extremely tender as it was cooked all day (week?), but the carrots and peas were were unflavorful mush. The mashed potatoes were from a box. Very good fat food for people who want to get fatter!

We went to bar on a busy Saturday night, found one seat at bar. After 10-15 minutes of waiting for a bartender to acknowledge us, I said "hi" to see if that would get us a drink? I was told to wait a minute while the bartender asked the people next to us if they wanted another drink. That was... More

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!
