I have been to Malarkey's three times now. Twice the service was quite good, but this last time it wasn't so hot. Our server disappeared for close to 45 minutes. Their glassware is smaller than other places that charge similar drink prices. Also, they play their jukebox entirely too loud at all times. It's not a dance club, guys. Just because you can turn it up that loud, that doesn't mean you should.

They have a nice outdoor seating area with fans. Though, if you don't like cigarette smoke, you might not want to sit out there. The food has quality ingredients and nice presentation.

Overall, not a bad place to spend a few hours with thirsty friends who don't mind leaving with a touch of hearing loss / tinnitus.

Malarkey's Tavern is a great place for Irish style food and drinks. Our waitress, Hanna, was excellent. She was attentive and helped with our food choices since it was our first time there. The food was great tasting and a good value.

We usually go for just drinks, but we sometimes get appetizers. I love the cheese board. The crowd is mostly local neighborhood people, but everyone is welcome. It's a Pittsburg Steelers bar whenever they are playing (I've never watched a game there, but seems like a good place for it). Great place to meet for happy hour or to play Golden Tee or darts .

I go there quite often, and I love it. The waitresses and bartenders are all very helpful, especially Katey and Liz. I never have to wait, and she knows exactly what I want right when I walk in... Hows that for excellent customer service!? The drinks are always strong, and the selection is crazy... TWENTY beers on tap..thats insane! And then another EIGHTY in the bottle! That's not even including all of the liquor! Pretty much anything you can think of, they've got it. And the food, excellent...I always get the irish tacos, or the irish nachos...the malrakey balls are great too. This place is a very fun and friendly place, the owners all walk around and talk to everyone, making everyone feel very welcomed. The atmosphere is very relaxed, suitable for the older more refined crowd.. it's never too rowdy, and the customers are all pretty laid back. The drink specials are great, too. This is the place to go.

Can't think of any reason to come here just for the food, as pub food is never anything to get too excited about. This is a very well-appointed Irish Pub with a fun decor. The outside patio is always hopping on weekend nights. They could do a better job of maintaining bathroom cleanliness on weekend nights. The staff is friendly, however I was disappointed one of the bartenders tried to overcharge me for a pizza, because they have placards up all over the bar advertising $5.00 pizzas. Oh well. I'd like to think it was an honest mistake.
