I don't like this place. It was built as a tourist trap/extension of the Mad River genre of bars/restaurants. If you want a comparison, think: Mad River's Metro Vibe + Noisy Oyster quality food. It's too bad considering the potential this location carries to be a prime time bar atmosphere. Instead it just falls to the wayside with the other tourist traps.
Sunday evening, the server was WONDERFUL,but....... unfortunately I don't call industrially pureed and frozen potatoes, canned gravy and freezer-burned sausages Bangers and Mash, and at $13.95 I brought home half of my serving and even the cats wouldn't eat the sausage and gravy.
Does great on covers like Citizen Cope and Bob Marley. And easy on the eyes!
If this is an “Irish-themed bar", how in the hell could their advertisement in the City Paper for St. Patrick's Day misspell Guinness???? Is anyone else upset that many so called pubs spell Guinness on their menus with only one N? Please people help stop this madness, Guinness has been around for over 250 years and bars should know how to spell one of the world's most popular beers correctly! Shame on any pub that represents itself as “Irish” to disrespect the brewery and Guinness lovers, to all those poser pubs I say: Póg mo thóin!!!!!
Skip it. Food isn't good. Waitstaff is not attentive. Overpriced.
Forgot the stars! Great job on Daniel Island
Never had food that good at Irish pub and I make it a career out of going to em! Wow great decor, service, just plain hospitality!
Great place to go for Beers and Music. Best part about this place is the Band, Bartenders, and Beers. It is not the best place to eat nor the best "Irish Bar" but the music and atmosphere has always made it ideal for me.
This is the finest pub I have been to in Carolina. The owners are friendly, the music great and - - the drinks are not bad either!
This was our last stop after spending the day in Charleston. My husband was thrilled to find Harp on tap. The bar and restaurant were beautiful and very welcoming. We had a quick appetizer and chatted with the bartender, a lovely young woman named Collette, a native of Ireland. We talked about Ireland and we left wanting to go back to Molly Darcy's and Ireland again.
Only been here twice and it was okay; yes, just okay the first time but I always give a place a second chance. First time I wen the bar service was terrible, had the worst margarita I have ever had but the roast beef was great. The second time however we decided to try it again since I loved the entree (but that would be the only thing) the first time we went and give it a go again. The live music wasn't too bad. We decided to order their "obnoxious nachos" but the only thing obnoxious about them was the total lack of them being close to nachos and that being after they were sent back twice. After that the waitress was snotty the rest of the time and telling the manager which never even did anything about the situation and the only service that was on time, not slow or lacking was the check. Apparently to me they do not care about their patrons and their personal service skills being in the service industry. I highly doubt I would go there again! I would not recommend them to anyone looking for service, unless you don't want to be bothered with anything except watching a sports game on the t.v.
Great atmosphere. Friendly and attractive staff. Many beer selections and great food for pub fare. Highly recommend.
Love this place! The staff is friendly and accommodating! My family and I usually go in for an early dinner...the orange burger is our favorite! I was pleasantly surprised to find out they do half price burgers on Tuesday nights. Then today I learned they do bottomless mimosas on Sundays, which was a great treat for my girlfriends and I! We needed a place like this on our side of town, and I'm glad we finally have one!
Great place for a pint o' beer... good atmosphere for hanging with friends (4+ stars). The food is good, but not wow, fairly typical (3 stars).
Went here today. Great beer menu and great interior. I ordered the fish & chips expecting something really great and authentic. What I got was frozen battered fish. Very dissapointing. Fish & chips is one of the easiest things to make fresh in a restaurant, and when the Irish pub is giving it to me frozen, that is kind of a dissapointment. Husband had corned beef and cabbage, he said it tasted good, but was not served hot, just tepid in temerature.
Will go again for a drink, but not for food.
Saturday night was a rockin' dance scene at Molly Darcy's with The Sneakers Band. The recently renovated pub (old Meritage) has a nice patio bar in the back and a great "people-watching" patio in the front. Didn't get a chance to eat but I'll be sure to go back for some Irish grub. The owners were present and super accessible to guests.
As usual parking downtown can be a nightmare, i.e. stuffing rolled up bills in a slot in a shaky little plastic phone booth type structure in the dark was not much fun. However that's not the Pub's fault. I do wish the City would install machines that spit out a receipt to place on your dash like Roanoke VA does. But that's enough "skyebabble"...
Update, went on a Tuesday night, moderate crowd. Sat at the bar.
Service: one bartender was decent, the other seemed like she would rather be somewhere else.
Beer: still a decent selection of beer, lots of wasted taps, but a few good ones to occupy a pint or two.
Food: sliding down the deep crevasse. I got BLT, did not realize that everything was singular. There were a few slicess of bacon so no off points there, but a single thin slice of tomato and a single wisp of lettuce. BLT's are usually piled high sandwiches, this one barely put space between the slices of bread. It was as if they don't care.
Save yourself and only order beer at this place!
O'Malleys is one of the better bars on upper king street.
The atmosphere is great, the food is surprisingly good, and the bartenders are very professional. I have been frequenting this bar for years and not even once have I had a poor customer-service experience.
This is my goto bar for NFL football. O'Malleys has solid food & drink specials during football games. This year it is $10 for a pitcher of highlife and a 1/4 lb burger.
@crystalk131 go back to mad river on market. A bar is what you make it, not how many lady gaga songs they play
I can't comment on the nightlife, but I did go by there for an early dinner/happy hour and had a great experience! The staff was very friendly and I think they've done a great job with the interior. Everyone at my table enjoyed the meals and I especially loved my chicken pot pie! I was happy to see a place finally go into this spot since Meritage closed and I'll definitely be going back.
