Molly Brannigans is a jewel among the restaurants and pubs in Erie. No only do the serve the best guinness in town, but their selection of Irish pub food is awsome. My favorite is the Irish Bangers, a perfect recreation of Irish Bangers and Mash with the most delicious cabbage. This is a hearty dish that nobody could pass up.... More

Great atmosphere, food, and service. Decor reminds you of Dublin, Ireland. Menu is expansive. If you can't find it there you must not be hungry

Wow! Awesome! I have eaten here 4 or 5 times in the last month, usually for a business lunch. I ordered something different every time and loved every dish. Ate mostly salads, but others at my table had sandwiches and fries etc. and everyone loved it. I will definitely go back!

I found this restaurant as a freshman in college (Gannon University),now whenever I'm back in town, I make sure to visit. Great place for me to catch up with my college friends. Even on the busiest trips, we always get great service. The food is delicious.

Stopped in and had a great meal - enjoyed the ambiance as well! Not a Guiness drinker myself, but my hubby enjoyed his.

Joana our hostess was lovely, very friendly and knew the menu well. The Rubén and sauerkraut balls are absolutely amazing. Also it felt just like an Irish pub from back home! Good beer selection too!

We stopped in on a cold day. We were able to sit by the fire. The service was good. So was the food that we ordered which was basically appetizers. We had to have some Jamison's and enjoyed the Irish atmosphere. We plan to visit again when we are downtown.

Molly's has great wait staff, terrific food, and a terrific selection of beers. The building is beautiful, so be sure to look up once you are seated. New owner, Mike, is terrific -- friendly and clearly committed to making sure guests have an enjoyable visit. WE DID! and we will return...often.
