Molly Maguire's Irish Pub and Restaurant

Molly Maguire's Irish Pub and Restaurant opened it's doors in March 2002 and quickly became Union County's favorite spot for great Irish Fare, steaks, chops and a great specials menu. Molly's is also known for the best hamburger in Union County, come on in and create your own. With a beautifully designed bar and the warmth and charm of a true Irish Pub, with two fire places, old world reclaimed timber, stone archways and furnishings from the Emerald Island, come and relax with old friends or share a pint with a couple of new friends. On weekends come on downstairs to "Croke Park" the sports pub at Molly's, with 10 flat screen HD televisions (some in their own booths) and a family friendly menu we offer something for everyone.

"From being greeted to served the staff was attentive and efficient. We had a beautiful table right next to the fireplace on a cold night. The wait staff and servers gave us plenty of time to order and the food came out of the kitchen quickly. The restaurant had a English pub ambiance that was warm and interesting. Near the end of the meal, a couple of tables got loud with kids. That was the only down side. I would definitely go back."

"I have been to Molly Maguire's many times before. Went with my wife and another couple. I've had the Roasted Rack of Lamb several times, decided to try an Irish Mist Steak for a change. The sauce was very good, steak was a bit overcooked (asked for medium rare, it was just a bit past medium), but still tender. My friend had the lamb, and he wasn't disappointed. Potato Leek and French Onion soups were very good. My wife enjoyed the Salmon Rockefeller. It was a Saturday night, and the restaurant was packed. Good thing I had made a reservation."

"You can enjoy tasty pub food in a neighborhood setting at Molly Maguires . The servers are always friendly (Tara) and accommodating .
Our food was served promptly and hot. Try the potato croquettes with your entree instead of mashed or baked for a nice change.
The early bird specials offer a good variety for those who like to eat early.
We would suggest reservations for a Saturday night.

"I used to lunch at Molly's frequently when I worked in the vicinity. Now, I plan monthly dinners for our social group to include different places others have not been to and to accommodate the difference in food preferences. Molly's fit the criteria perfectly. Our party of 10 had enough room and was served in a quick, friendly and efficient manner. We were in the bar area, so the guys were able to see portions of the "game" on TV. My crab cake appetizer and custom Molly Burger was better than expected. Everyone enjoyed our visit! Thanks!"

"We each had the small Cesar salad- fresh tasting! I had the crab stuffed shrimp with the potato croquettes- shrimp weren't jumbo but cooked well. The potato croquettes were a good recondition by our server- Tara- she was very helpful with suggestions. My husband went wild over the rack of lamb. He was VERY surprised expecting something average but found the lamb to be "cooked perfectly, tender, sweet, devoid of any gaminess". We came on a night with a very popular band so we stayed to enjoy the music. Overall a good experience with an older (40's) bar crowd."

"We went to brunch on Mother's Day. We were seated immediately at a comfortable table. While the restaurant was busy, our waitress came over to us immediately to take our drink order. She explained how the brunch was run and we headed to got some food. Brunch was standard brunch fair. The food quality was fine as expected and there was plenty waiting for us. The service was outstanding. Our waitress was very nice and accomodated our needs (we have an autistic child with very specific food requirements). I would definately recommend going to Molly Mcguire's."
