We were passing through and needed a bite and a drink. Food was good and came out fast. Our server Jenn was friendly and let us sample.

We walked into this pub on a Thursday night, when passing thru Bangor. This place had a jazz 3 piece band playing at the entrance, playing amazing jazz music. We sat at the bar, because no tables were available. We received fast friendly service from the bartender. We ordered a few cocktails and 1 appetizer of wings w/ an array... More

Main concern was the slow service. It took forever to get a drink and order put in. Once the food and beer arrived, it was fantastic! We really enjoyed the live jazz music that was going on. Great atmosphere. Overall we had a great experience!!

If you're in the mood for some pub food and some live music, check out Paddy's on the weekend. On a good night, your dinner will be accompanied by Irish music from a local band. The beer is good, the food is hardy and the atmosphere is friendly....just like a good Irish Pub should offer always.

Paddy Murphy's is not what I initially pictured. Thought the wait staff was excellent and the food was traditional Irish fare. Seemed a little cluttered and needed a good bath. Table after it was cleaned was sticky did not really seem clean. Beer was cold with plenty of choices to choose from.

Was told by the locals to go here for good food. First impressions were that it seemed like a local spot for college students. Was small and kind of old inside. Nothing bad or great about it. Small bar. The service was very good and I had 1 of my best burgers EVER here!!! I could barely finish it. The... More

My friend and I stopped her for dinner and we both enjoyed our meals - we left quite full! The long booth tables looked great, but we were seated in a corner right near the kitchen area. It was a little awkward, but the waitress was nice and friendly and we enjoyed the stop. Unfortunately we had to hurry back... More

My boyfreind and I decided to try a local reaturant as we heard that they had entertainment and good food. We ordered wings and this cheesy dip and they were both amazing. Best food in Bangor for sure. The service was awesome. Our server was Bobby and she took a picture of us and was very freindly and knowledgable about... More

Tasty beer selection, solid pub fare-with an Irish flare, and a great atmosphere make this a spot to visit. Family friendly during the day and a packed house at night, Paddy's has a loyal gang of patrons- but don't let that bother you if you are new- no "townie" attitudes here. The fried Pickles and Sweet potato fries are outstanding.... More

We stopped at Paddy Murphy's after a tour of a local college. My son who had traveled to Ireland last summer was curious to see if the "genuine" Irish label was accurate. I had the Irish stew which was delicious and perfect for the cold day. My husband had the chowder in a bread bowl which was also very good.... More
