Restaurant details
Reviewed May 18, 2013 via mobile

We had lunch here and watched hockey on the multiple screens. The fish & chips was perfect, the kid's meal grilled cheese was a big sandwich and my husband's burger was big and juicy. Their home cut fries are like 'Swiss Chalet' fries, for those of you who understand what I mean. Malt vinegar was available for the fish and the fries.
We went back for dinner with 10 other hockey families and had a large room to ourselves. They put the NHL game on the big screen for us. Meals were served hot and fresh and in good time. Everyone enjoyed what they ordered. Pizza looked great, ribs were good and the Caesar salad had nice crisp croutons. The servers were all friendly and attentive. All around good 'American' food. Lots of choices on draught, and plenty of TVs. Wil come again when we are in the area

Great food, large portions, tv's everywhere. Friendly servers and a variety of live entertainment. The food is not cheap, but the comfort food recipes and choices make up for the extra dollar or two you need to spend. It can get noisy on a big sports night, but nobody seems to care.

Don't bother eating here. We each had a basic sandwich and neither was good. Tater tots weren't good- how can you mess up a tot?!!! Fries tasted like they were fried in either old oil or the same oil that they use for the fish. We were not impressed with the food at all and I'm rating Mullen's as what I expect dining at this level should be- I'm not comparing it to fine dining just other bar/grill places. Service was friendly and fast

First time here. Went to see a friend who was playing tonight. Our server Samantha was outstanding. Got pretty crowded and loud around 7. Steak quisidillas (sp?) were at best barely ok. Very little cheese and it sure wasn't steak, just a small amount of shredded meat. The cost, 12.50
We both ordered the special, corned beef and cabbage. the potatoes and cabbage were way over cooked. very thick slices of corned beef that had absolutely no flavor. One piece was cut wrong so it was chewy. Samantha asked us how every thing was, and wasn't happy with our reply, she felt bad, but it wasn't her fault. she did talk to the manager, who came to our table, and offered to buy us a round.
The table next to us sent a burger back.
A $68.00 tab for a few drinks and a rotten meal. At least the service and band were good.

Stopped for a late night dinner, after all restaurants near our hotel but the fast food places were closed. Come on, now, how can a restaurant completely ruin onion rings and french onion soup? Come here to find out. The onion rings were putrid, as if the deep fryer oil hadn't been changed forever and the french onion soup tasted like dishwasher water. May have been a fluke, but we had no more a few bites of onion rings and a few sips of soup. Okay, my son thought his tacos were okay. Most of the patrons still present on the Friday night that we visited were so sloshed, they probably didn't care about the little food that they ate. Very sad.
