This place was a treat to discover. Quiet gramercy gem, looks like a pub in Ireland or rural england. The floor has woodchips on the ground, and the walls are filled with vintage photos- pretty cool. Can't speak for the food, but had a lovely glass of wine and friends enjoyed the beers on tap. Great winter spot.

I live in the neighborhood and love having this place nearby. Great for nightcap or place to rendezvous for the evening. Sawdust on the floor, dark wood, dimly lit, fireplace/wood burning stove, all around great cozy vibe especially in the wintertime. Makes you feel like you've gone back in time to old New York. Bartenders and servers can be gruff... More

We found Molly's Pub online and ate there on a weekend trip to NYC. It is so like the pubs in Ireland, cozy, authentic, with sawdust on the floor. The food was great--Shepard's pie, lamb stew, great beer and great service. Highly recommend!

This is probably one of the oldest bars in the city and it is very popular. We stopped in the evening for cocktails after a day of shopping and the place drew a big but very friendly crowd. We had a terrific time chatting with many of the patrons and had a delicious burger.

Molly's Pub is a neat little place to grab Irish food in NYC. From the small cozy feeling to the sawdust floors, this is a great little find!

Great atmosphere in this pub with an old Irish feel. The staff are very friendly and chatty, real Irish charm. We came for breakfast and the food was of a high quality, the French toast was amazing! Would highly recommend
