By looks of it everyone heads here once the bars close down as there are not many other options. Basic pub food but pricey, club sandwich was ok but watching riff raff was better.

Good music non existent staff no service Spent 25 minutes listening to good music Only recognition from staff ( and it was not busy) was waitress that whizzed by and yelled "How are you doing? Even if this was a 'go up to the bar to get your drinks' place no one indicated that. Not impressed

Nothing out of the ordinary, but if you are looking for traditional music, good beer, decent food and friendly door/bar staff on George Street, then you should give Bridie's a try.

We were there for dinner, and it was very quiet, which we found rather strange as we had tried to get into the Yellowbelly Brewery and there was a one hour wait. We were glad though, because Bridie Molloy's was great. I had the mac and cheese and it was very good, and the ambiance was just what you'd want... More

Came here for lunch with a friend and enjoyed their French Onion Soup. Service was fast, friendly and attentive. Decor is typical pub decor but interesting. Menu had a lot of different choices including all the usual pub food for Newfoundland.

We were looking for a fun night out that would include seafood and this was a great stop. There was a balladeer playing guitar and a few couples started dancing and singing along.

We stopped by to hear some music and there was a guy on guitar playing. I had scallops with bacon- sort of overcooked. The problem is they only have one lady taking care of everyone on that level of the restaurant so she was rather harried.

I've eaten at Bridie's a few times. The brunch is really good. They have the best french onion soup I've ever had and the most delicious spinach salad. Very reasonably priced for the quality of food they prepare. Will most assuredly be returning there for eats in the future.

Birdies has excellent staff, atmosphere, music and food. Waiters are honest about choices of food advising what is great and what is so so. The music is always great.

Have dined here twice, once for lunch on a slow day and once for supper after a major hockey game. Both times showed consistently excellent food and great service. Many menu choices to suit everyone's palette and drinks are beautifully made and presented. Definitely a favourite.
