I, too, had low expectations of the food. We wanted to be close to Willie K so we bought the dinner. The show was excellent and the 4 course dinner was very good. I had the boneless short ribs for my entree and it was tender and delicious. The red velvet cake dessert was very good. The service was great, too. The only negative of the evening was the uncomfortable chairs. Mulligans is a nice, small venue for music and I definitely will go back!
