Went to Molly Maguire's for Sunday Brunch as a special treat on a family occasion. We arrive just after they opened so there was no problem getting a seat. Service was very good, the food was well prepared and better than most Brunch buffets. We each had a Mimosa from the $5 drink specials and they were well made and promptly delivered to the table. The cook behind the omelet station was friendly and attentive, he also doubled as the carver for the ham/prime rib station.
And yet, the overall impression was meh! We had more than enough to eat and everything was excellent but it just seemed, ordinary. When mac 'n cheese is your signature dish (never associated that with Irish cooking) it just doesn't rise above the other options for brunch in the Lansdale area. At $18 a person, I was expecting to be wowed but wound up thinking, where's the rest.
The place was not crowded, we never had to wait in line for anything, the staff spent most of the time standing around the bar shooting the breeze with each other. All that left me with the impression of a good meal looking for people to find it and being held back by the price. When another occasion comes up and we want a nice, quite place for a well made brunch, we will probably go back. But for the price, I doubt we'll be stopping in spur of the moment or just to have breakfast.
