Molly's is one of the friendliest, most authentic looking Irish pubs in New York, with sawdust on the floor and a fire in the fireplace...very inviting. It looks like a great place to meet for a drink (which it is) but the big surprise is that their food is surprisingly good -- much better than normal pub food. The Irish... More

Great place for a Guinness and food is also served in this small Irish bar. The air of authenticity is enhanced by the sawdust on the floor and service is quick and efficient from the friendly bar staff.

We spent time here on St. Patty's Day after the parade so it was very, very busy. Folks in our party enjoyed the atmosphere, the kind souls who were working, the visitors celebrating the weather and parade and the food that was ordered. Burgers and shepherd's pie. All good. Sawdust on the floor, fun place. Irish hospitality for sure!

I was dying for corn beef and cabbage but I didn't want to find a place on the Green Drinking day. I found Molly's sawdust floor bar/restaurant and made a reservation for the day after. It was jammed but they honored are reservation and we had a difficult time with the menu. We wanted it all. As I will note... More

Im sad to report that the Mollys of yesterday is gone. Once a great pint and famous burger in a quiet spot has been invaded by yuppies. Wildly overcrowded, I asked if I could eat at the bar and the bartender told me yes but Id have to stand. OK, I'm good with most things---but lets think his out a... More

Walked in off the street looking for a good drink. Great drinks. Great calamari. A very no-nonsense kind of place for a good drink and some good food. Small with very attentive staff.

Met a friend here for something to eat on his recommendation. Really nice place. We got a table and ordered drinks. When our friend arrived I went to the bar to order another drink for our table. The barmaid looked a little bit put out by the fact that I had come to her and not the waitress. When the... More

Awesome joint. Loved how authentic the pub was. Sawdust on the ground to sop up spills. Burger was really good - a little messy but totally worth it. Onion rings were great too. My wife got the corned beef and it was amazing. Huge portions. Some of the smoothest poured Guinness I've ever had! Definitely recommend and will return when... More

I love this bar! Always friendly, never so noisy that you can't hear yourself think, and a reasonably varied menu to bring you back on a regular basis. If you like a drop of the Irish, this venue is for you.
