Cozy pub

Really enjoy the food here. Service is quick, and there is a very homey atmosphere. We go here at least 2 times per month for lunch and dinner.

Classic Irish Pub. Friendly staff. They were very busy but everyone seemed to be welcome and treated as a regular. I will definitely be back next trip. Hot BBQ was good. Shame I was working a nice pint of Smithwicks would have hit the spot.

The atmosphere at Paddys is great! Old Irish Pub feel with a magnificent bar, long booths, high or low tables, lots of games and coffee table books in the deep window sills, a gorgeous tin ceiling, good food and drinks.... I love their mushroom soup!

I've been to this place a lot since my first encounter upon moving up to Bangor in July. It's a great option for a low key dinner or lunch and I've frequented Paddy's for their trivia nights as well as a fun place to hangout on weekend nights. I definitely recommend it to locals and out of towners alike for... More

Great food and service, but not a quick "in and out" experience. This isn't a bad thing! Just make sure you have the time for it. I usually detest french fries, but I loved theirs! My mother was over the moon with her burger. Cooked just right. It's hard to get a burger cooked "medium" when you order it that... More

I usually don't review places so close to home. I don't know why. But Paddy Murphy's deserves a big thumbs up. We went in last Saturday, Valentines Day, for an early lunch. The three of us had wonderful soups and delish entrees. My DH commented that the corned beef and cabbage was the best he'd ever tasted. There was a... More

I was planning on eating nothing but lobster when I was in Maine and I did eat a lot of it, but one afternoon while I was shopping in downtown Bangor, I stopped in Paddy Murphy's for lunch. I'm so glad I did. It was cozy and the food was great! I ordered a burger and onion rings and I... More

Excellent food-great service. I've been a few times-french fries are TERRIFIC. Not a fan of the pulled pork sandwich but that is the only sandwich I have not liked. i will definitely be back!

I have a pet peeve with Irish pubs who call themselves that, but have nothing to back it up. So happy this was the real deal! They played Irish music which is a must for these pubs and I thoroughly enjoyed it. The décor is very charming and the seating looked like old church pews-very cool! Lots of natural light... More
