Fine burgers. Mine with Guinness sauce, my spouse's with gorgonzola. Lively, comforting pub food, and naturally, Guinness Stout on tap. Excellent service. Worth a visit.

A great pub to have lunch with friends. Food was great, excellent portions and good prices. Outside street seating was available. Staff was quick and friendly. Willing to make sure patrons was serviced even though extremely busy and full.

I had the Cottage Pie (really Shepherds Pie) and my wife had the Guinness Stew. Both meals were delicious and quite filling. The service was fine also. As I was driving, I had the iced tea... More

Great location, in downtown Bangor. Pretty big menu and great beer choices, what else would you expect from an Irish Pub. Nice out seating area and the wait staff is great!

Paddy Murphys is the spot for great eats and good music! I've been there numerous of times and had not ate a bad bit of food. The fondue is fabulous! Don't forget to try the stuffed pork chops!

We were staying at the Inn across the street and looking for a quick, reasonably priced meal. The atmosphere is great and our waitress was awesome. We had the spinach and artichoke dip, then a Philly cheese steak sandwich with onion rings and the chicken salad wrap with beans. Every bite was delicious and we voted the onion rings as... More

Hampton Inn gave us a ride downtown on a Sunday night about 7pm and this was about the only place open. And now I know why because the meal and service was great! Bangor was shut down that early! Thanks to Hampton for the FREE RIDE!

For a weary traveler, this hits the spot as it is in central downtown and has a fun Irish spirit. There is a good bartender, friendly waitresses and a good feeling throughout. It brings out the Celtic spirit in all of us.
