Molly's Bar & Restaurant offers guests a dimly lit, cozy interior with fireplace. Serving appetizers and pints of Guinness, this bar is renowned for its Shepherd's Pie, hamburgers, and steaks, all for reasonable prices. A few menu items include Molly's chef salad for $7.75, Molly's club sandwich for $6.25, lamb stew, house shrimp and more.
Good Food, Good Beer, Great Atmosphere – This place has a great atmosphere. At times you will really think your drinking a pint somewhere in the Old Country. People here were very friendly and the food was good also.
One of the best kept secrets in Manhattan – I love Molly's. It is our neighborhood burger spot. You will not be disappointed. Molly's serves one of the best burgers in Manhattan (the other one being Pipers Kilt in Inwood).
In addition, the steaks are excellent and the prices good. And if you like beer battered, greasy onion rings, this is the place for you. The bartenders are experienced and welcoming and the waitresses just wonderful.
Molly's is the real deal-not some corny wanna be Irish joint.
You can smell the peat in the fire – T^his is the type of place Wineturtle thinks of when you say Irish Pub Food.The Berger is a platefull with real hand cut fries that do not need Heinz to make them good. Ask Jimmy to tell you the story of the Around Long Island Sailboat Race he was in, its a real hoot!!!!Wheres Nick? Lunch time is slow enough to pry out a tale from the Old Sod. Irish Cofee by the Woodburning Hearth(wineturtle once found a Ducco-flame Log in it Shame,Shame, Shame) It like home by the third visit,so go for Lunch,Dinner,And Last Call(always 4AM) and your a regular.
Considered by many to be the finest Irish pub in Manhattan. – Molly's warm interior, pleasing old-school jukebox and regular-Joe crowd makes every visit here seem almost like a privilege. However, the only real levity you're going to find is in the football game on the telly and the sawdust shavings on the floor. If your party gets too rowdy or your order too complex, you'll incur a pointed, melodramatic sigh from one of the lassie-waitresses. The well-worn fireplace gets put to good use on dark, cold nights. The menu includes one of the city's mightiest burgers, a ten ounce sirloin behemoth, and while there may be some liquor bottles within the barkeep's grasp, you'll be ordering a Guinness if you know what's good for you.
Before you go to Heaven... – ...make your way to Molly's for a burger or shepherd's pie, because both are among the best in the City. Let's not include the fois gras and kobe burgers. (Note: Corner Bistro is good, but not this good.) The place is authentic, from one of the best pints of Guinness (others: Ear Inn, Paddy Reilly's, Swifts), a solid wait-staff, and all the way down to a well-worn fireplace.
If only every neighborhood had a pub like this.
Solid hearty fare... – Yes, it's pretty much what you would expect, given the editorial review, and that's not such a bad thing. Fish and chips are great, but sheperd's pie is probaby the best rendition I've had in a long time. Could see where it would be a truly neighborhood bar if not for the occasional loud group meeting there. Still, not bad for food and atmosphere if you're the laid back type.
More then just Guinness – If your tired of country club food at new car prices and could care less about rubbing elbows with the beautiful people then this is the place for you. Sawdust on the floor, great food, and Guinness on tap. What else is there.
Good Pub Fare – The food is hearty, fresh and, if nothing else, boldly-seasoned (i.e., gourmet palates may take offense). If you want to sit down and get a big and spice-laden hunk o chopped sirloin, covered by a big slab o cheese, and accompanied by crisp fries, you come here. The Guinness is fresh but could be pulled better (easy on the head there, boy-o). The service can be gruff at times, a bit absent-minded, but ultimately accomodating. Lastly, if you dont mind the smoke from the bar and the close quarters, its a great place.
