We Really Enjoyed Our Lunch!

We were walking down State St. to get to the Bayfront Convention Center, and Molly Brannigan's was the perfect spot to stop for lunch since it was about the midpoint of our hike. We arrived at about 4pm, and were seated immediately. The atmosphere is great. They had a large assortment of draft... read more

Vegetables were frozen fro a steamer bag, nasty. Waitress was disinterested, food fair to poor. Not real clean and needed repairs. Would not recommend.

I was in Erie for the week of St Patrick's Day. I didn't venture out as all the places were crowded but was told to try this place. I went the next night and tried the Irish stew and it was great. I liked it so much I went back with friends the next night. All the food was good,... More

I went to Ireland a few years ago and the selection here is authentic. Everyone in my group that went was fully satisfied. The meals were delicious. The service was fantastic. I can't wait to go again!

Should you ever want to try fish & chips done properly, then MBs is your place. Perfectly breaded cod and plenty of chips, add salt and vinegar then enjoy, just like the UK minus the newspaper wrappings! Great place.

We travel to Erie Pa for the casino and always stop in at Molly Brannigans first to fill up before we gamble. This trip was on the coldest day this winter. We ordered potato soup which is a typical thing for us to order. It came out and was so thick it looked liked scalloped potatoes or thick mashed potatoes.... More

Went there for dinner with my son. Had a window seat and enjoyed sitting away from the busy center of the restaurant. Soup was delicious (Manhattan Clam Chowder) and entree's were generous and served promptly. Our waitress was maybe a little too talkative, but she was efficient. I've been there several times and will go back again.

Created in a historic building the place is gorgeous. The food is amazing and reasonable. You can enjoy them from brunch all the way through until closing time; each time with a vibe of its own. We like to go for the more ethnic Irish foods (bangers & eggs or the most amazing Shepherd's Pie & awesome Irish Soda Bread).... More

Stopped for lunch after visiting maritime museum. Big burgers and Reuben. Try a boxty for something different. Lots of restaurants and bars nearby. Walk down the street to see Perry Square.

We had found this restaurant on a previous visit to Erie and loved it. So for this visit, even though it is not near the Interstate, we chose our lodging based on its proximity to Molly Brannigans, so we could walk there for dinner. We wound up going for a light lunch and then going back for dinner. We loved... More
