The staff at Molly's was professional and incredibly delightful to work with. We booked the Shebeen room, and provided appetizers for our guests, with an optional cash bar. The facility exceeded all of my expectations.

I noticed the last review was some time back, so possibly an improvement has occurred or we landed there on a great night. We ordered the Irish Rueben, which had thick cut meat, toasted rye with large cut fries and a pickle. Very Good. Had the second half the next day and was still good. The fried chicken was skimpy,...

I knew better, but every couple of years I wonder if the food has gotten better...the answer is no! Truthfully, no one goes to Molly Malone's for the food, they go for the party, the widely televised soccer matches, the late night beer, but not for the food! Bangers and Mash could have been found in any Kroger frozen dinner... More

We come here often, usually sitting outside on the patio without dogs. First time in the dining room. Ordered app of mussles (we've had many times) of which only half were fully steamed. Fish n chips was undercooked as well. Disappointing visit.

You can tell that this place packs up quickly. Parking is tough and in the rear. Getting to it took a while. Service and food was good.

Basic "Irish" grub is ok- other places are better. While our server was fine, another brought my friend a cup of coffee that she literally slammed on the table. I see no need to return when there are better options in town.

Nice to be able to take your buddy and eat al fresco on the terrace. Being a Brit I do like my bangers and mash, that can tell you a lot about the place. The bangers and mash were not bad but way too much mash. Guinness always good. I ordered a side order of brussel sprouts which were supposedly... More

First the bar and everything in it reminded me of an Irish pub, which I have ate and drank in quite a few. I had the Lamb Stew and it was so tender and just the right spices. The soda bread was very fresh and really good too. A really good selection of drinks also. I will be back there... More

I love coming here after walking the neighborhood with my girlfriend. The outdoor patio is a fun place to hangout, it's relaxed and elevated from Baxter Ave so you're not staring right at the traffic. The service has always been good and the food is quite tasty. The beer battered fish is amazing as is the black bean burger. Fried... More

I always make sure to stop in at Molly Malone's whenever I'm in Louisville. Been here about 5 times now and I've never been disappointed. Good selection of Irish faire on the menu and tap beers at the bar. Outside dining is an option (though it can be a bit noisy on the street side) and many TVs inside to... More
