“Don't think twice!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 22, 2014

This place is down right fantastic! The menu is amazing, they have spot on food. It will hit your irish tastebuds hard! Great place to watch the game or hear a great band play. Go enjoy a pint, and eat anything they offer.

“Pleasant surprise with great food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 20, 2014

The ambiance was perfect, food was great! Had the Meg's Threesome appetizer with the corned beef cuban with a bellhaven beer. Perfect.The corned beef was cooked perfectly and wasn't all fatty. Located right off the little 'downtown' Melbourne with all the antique and random shops, we will definitely be back when in Melbourne. The prices were pretty good considering most pub styles can hike up the price a little more

“One of the best pub experiences in my lifetime”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 18, 2014

My favorite restaurant in the whole wide world is McGuire's Irish Pub in Pensacola, Florida. Meg O'Malley's is the closest I have ever seen at duplicating that experience. They serve the same 18 cent bean soup.

I ordered the 1/2 pound cheeseburger which came with a pickle and slaw. I also ordered a side of fries and the bean soup. Everything was great. The fries were a lot more cripsy than you usually get and that was a big plus too. I ate a late lunch at 3pm on a Thursday and the place looked dinner or lunch busy. That should tell you plenty about their quality.

I live an hour from here so getting back won't be automatic, but I plan to return with the family when convenient. The service was great. The quality and price make this place an exceptional value. I don't have any complaints.

“Great Food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 18, 2014

When you enter Meg O'Malley's you start to get the sense of being in an Irish pub. Dark wood and lots of ale paraphernalia. The hostess seemed a bit overwhelmed when she sat us, she might have been new.

I couldn't decide what I wanted to eat - the menu is impressive with all the Irish staples. I decided on the Kilkenney, probably one of the best sandwiches I have had in a long, long time. I added a side of Tater Tots which were perfect. From the salads to the kids meals, everyone left the restaurant full and happy.

One complaint - the booth they sat us at had a 2 top right next to it where one person at the 2 top would have their back right next to your side. It was weird.

Definitely will go back again and again.

“A Mom's Opinion”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 15, 2014

Meg O'Malley's has great food with many good dishes. Certainly it is great at night. My favorite time for Meg O'Malley's is lunch. It is quieter and a better time to take kids. I am grateful that they have a couple of Irish-Themed dishes for kids. Being located in Downtown Melbourne, O'Malley's is a near a nice downtown with many place to explore. If you are the type that likes Off-The-Beaten path destinations, you will find a walk through Melbourne Florida small downtown fun. There are a few thrift shops, a few antique shops, gift shops, and other shops. When I want to buy a gift for someone that looks like it is from Florida, this is when I usually shop. A late lunch at Meg O'Malley's followed by a walk through downtown (if it is not too hot) is my idea of good afternoon.
