we popped in here for a quick before dinner drink and it was totally fine, just didn't have any sort of wow factor. bar was not crowded at all and we were able to get service fast enough. our bartender was very matter-of-fact and we ordered to lagunitas and paid for our check. the beer tasted a little funky and...

We take a nice walk down the street and found this lovely pub and stop for a happy hour drink. Absolutely tasty dark beer for just $5... 😉 so yummy

I generally try to focus on fun stuff, rather than spend my time reliving the not-so-wonderful experiences. However, on rare occasions, there's a fail so great it can't be ignored. Such was the case of our recent disastrous visit to Molly Malone's Capital Hill Saloon in Washington, DC. Molly Malone's was our regular stop when we attend the Evening Parade... More

We went with our two grandsons before the Friday night parade at the marine barracks . We told the waitress we were going there to ensure our dinner would be served on time. We got our drinks and chicken wings and then nothing. We asked about our order and were told it was coming soon. We watched several other tables... More

We came to watch the 2016 NFL Draft. It was a great pub with kind, helpful (and handsome! ;-) ) bartenders. My husband said the food was good too. We'll be back!

We tried Molly Malone's since we could walk right in on a busy Saturday night. Not family friendly at all - they have wine but no wine list so hard to choose - food was so so; service needed more "coaching" or training. Way better options on street and in area.

My wife and I went for a late supper. We were pretty disappointed in the service. My soup was tepid at best, and perhaps iI would've let the server know if he'd cared enough to check on us. I finished my pint about a third of the way through my entry, and really could've used another, but we were completely... More

After Church on 8th Street SE, we went looking for a place to have lunch before hitting the E Street Movies. We walked a ways up and read the over-priced menus at the very busy restaurants along the street (and there are at least 20!). The menu of Irish Brunch items at MM's was the most appealing of the lot.... More

We ate here while waiting to see the sunset parade at the Marine barracks. We ordered a appetizer pasta and shrimp with a spicy sauce, which needed a little more shrimp in it. Wife ordered the buffalo chicken wrap which she liked.

Service was ok. Food ok. Just average. Beer good but expensive but DC is expensive:). Good for hanging out.
