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.

We ducked into this restaurant to get out of the rain. It has a very pub like feel. The soups that we ordered were excellent. I could have happily spent the afternoon here listening to the music and sampling the beers. They actually had Irish meals as opposed to Geaghan's which had American food with Irish names.

This is in the heart of downtown so parking can be a bit tricky but doable. The food and service is excellent and it has a great atmosphere.

Staff were great, friendly and accommodating. Atmosphere is what you'd expect from a pub. Nice selection of beer on tap. Everyone else at our table enjoyed their meals, but my husband and I both got fish and chips, and both found the fish just awful. The batter was thick and doughy; the fish was cooked well enough but slimy and... More
