Description: Celebrating nearly 40 years, Muldoon’s is the real thing. A warm generous & friendly pub with fine pub food. Situated on the corner of Southern California’s #1 shopping - financial district Fashion Island - Newport Center, Muldoon’s is known for her two pubs, outdoor courtyard and cozy Dublin dining room filled with booths and a warm fireplace. Locals call Her their “neighborhood gem” in a neighborhood filled with excellent restaurants. But, there is only one Muldoon’s. Great for lunch, dinner, Sunday brunch and private events. Muldoon’s has a lively happy hour, live music - dancing on weekends. Celebrating St. Paddy’s Day is the best! Fit for foodies and those in the know of the greatest ales, lagers beers, mean cocktails and notable wine. Muldoon’s is the home of Sindi Rae’s Dark Chocolate Pudding when she’s in the kitchen! Her Awards: Best Pub in Southern California & the OC, Best Food, Best Burgers, Best Guinness, Best Irish Coffee & Best Staff!

“Fun place with good food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 12 August 2014

Grabbed some drinks and late night food with some friends here the other night. I'd never been before although I had drive by a couple times. Server was great, drinks were a little expensive but it was definitely my type of joint. Lots of different beer on draft and a bunch of different whiskey to chose from. We split some appetizers that were pretty... curious to see how the rest of the menu is next time.

“Best fish and chips in Orange County”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 14 July 2014

But don't just get their "wild snapper," order half and half fried fish and their HUGE fried shrimp .... so yummy! Their french fries are delicious as well! When we went there yesterday, they had a great rock band playing on the patio. We had a great time! Also, all of their food, especially their Irish dishes, are not to be missed!

“Like home...”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 14 July 2014

Comfort food at it's finest! The kitchen is open until 10 on weeknights - there is patio seating, bar seating and a quaint little dining room. The soda bread is amazing! Currants and anise seed give it a unique flavor. Generous portions.

“Nice bar”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 30 April 2014 via mobile

We stopped in for some drinks after a dinner at Roy's around the corner.
We didn't eat so I can't comment.
Big venue & I liked the open courtyard in the middle.
We did have to wait a bit for service as they were fairly busy for a Friday night. Overall, just an average visit but I'd give it another shot.
