    We had a miserable experience here. It took 75 minutes to get our food, and the noise level was nearly unbearable. The food was barely average and the price was above average. We won’t be back.

    Our family has eaten at Mulleadys on numerous occasions; I guess that speaks for itself. Without exception, the food has been excellent for a local pub, the service friendly and timely, and the overall atmosphere very comfortable for small families. The beer selection could improve with more local varieties.

  • ChipO

    I frequent Mulleadys often to grab a bite to eat the food is always great but on a few ocations the servers were overloaded and inturn slow getting your food or drink but when it arives it is always worth it.

    I made the mistake of going there on my birthday for a drink with my good friend. I ordered a Hale’s Red Menace that I got a case of food poisoning from…it tasted really skanky..the cause of not cleaning out the beer lines…so the bacteria just lives on and on. It took me a solid week and a half before I was normal again, and i doubt that I will ever set foot in the place again. Its W A Y too loud, the food is okay, not great, service average, but I will never ever order a beer there.

    To John–

    Mulleadys has the beer lines cleaned twice monthly, which is twenty-two times more than the health department asks, and more than any other restaurant I have every been associated with.
    The chance of contracting a food born illness from beer is virtually impossible.
    What is more likely is that you simply over indulged on your birthday or need to work on your personal hygiene.
    Happy Birthday,

    Travis Stanley-Jones

      Wow, way to respond to your customer’s and their comments Travis!!! Your so busy with your verbal attacks and blowing people off in defense of keeping your business that you forget that people are entitled to their public opinions, and as harsh as they may sometimes be…you would be a better business owner if you might be more compassionate and open to their comments and suggestions. Their is more than enough room for improvement in your establishment and it seems you spend way too much energy in your negative attacks then on proactive positive solutions. I’ve been a lifelong resident of magnolia and a proud member of the community and Magnolia does not have enough great places to mingle and socialize over good food and good drink. It saddens me every time I hear a friends experience of the new Mulleadys….what should be a warm inviting friendly neighborhood atmosphere is anything but. Good Luck with Mulleady’s. It’s a shame to see such a great establishment created by Dave go down the big urinal….

    tasty… need another cider than Maugners, though.

  • Val

    According to http://www.decadeonline.com/main.phtml?agency=skc, at last surprise health inspection this restaurant got 15 points, with 2 high risk violations.

    When I moved to Magnolia and my boyfriend and I came to Mulleadys for the first time, I knew we would be regulars. I think it's upscale for a pub, but the prices are reasonable and the atmosphere is casual and friendly. I'm a wine-drinking herbivore and my boyfriend is a beer-drinking meat-eater and we both love this place. There is something for everyone.

  • Magnolia lifer

    I used to like going there but what's with the crappy service? You never see the waitress after she comes the table the first time.

    We enjoyed stopping by late night fri for happy hour drinks and snacks but we found a new place after they kept closing the kitchen 10 minutes before midnight. Just change the happy hour time to 11:45pm all ready.

    I've got a toddler, and we love coming here for early dinners. They offer a variety of incredible vegetable dishes, unusual for most restaurants, let alone pubs… we're not vegetarian, we just think food should be healthy and delicious. We've ordered a variety of different meals and side dishes, and each has been incredible. I also appreciate the mild attempt to purchase local ingredients.

    Service is sometimes a little slow, I wouldn't come here in a hurry.

  • chiizus

    Have been there and had some REALLY GREAT soups, but other times, the food wasn't as impressive. Service is sometimes slow, sometimes fine. I really wish they would open the upstairs more evenings. I would go much more often if the dart boards were accessible more often. My boyfriend and I really enjoy having a drink and an appetizer and playing a few games of darts.

    I'm sorry to say it's lost a bit of its Irishness with the departure of David Mulleady, but it's still a great pub, and food coming out of the kitchen, created by Andy Bean, is some of the best pub grub in all of Seattle. This goes well beyond your typical pub jalapeno poppers etc. Try duck fat almonds or the pickle pot. The pub chips (they're called crisps in Ireland) are to die for.

    The ambiance at this bar is great. They have a great selection of microbrews and their food is fabulous. The owner was amazingly nice.

  • simone7

    I love this place.

  • Bck

    They have a really big urinal in the men’s room, I almost fell into it.

    Ejaculation volume is the amount of semen concentration of sperms in your seminal fluid. A lot of factors are taken into consideration to really measure the semen count of a every man such as the actual length of time between ejaculations, semen sample analysis, how the sample is kept when being transported to the lab. Sperm tablets is trully fantastic 100% herbal formula that without doubt will hugely increase the amount of semen liquid volume by up to 400%. The so popular herbal tablet has a lot of ancient South African vitamins, herbal and minerals. A low semen volume analysis examines some characteristics of a male’s semen fluid and the sperm found in the semen fluid. It may be done while investigating a couple’s infertility problem or maybe after a vasectomy to check that the procedure was successful. It is also used for testing some donors for semen fluid donation. These days it is possible to increase ejaculation fluid with completely safe and natural ways like buying online herbal pills from the many Internet shops.

I’ve been searching nearby for this internet site right after becoming referred to them from a colleague and was thrilled when i was able to locate it following looking for extended time.

I’m confident I’ll be back and definitely will send my pals

    Mulleady’s is still a favorite stop. Sorry to see Andy’s ambitious menu gone, but it still has that Dublin pub feel, great bar, and of course, Guinness. Henry, Sam, and Eli are all great bartenders.

    Hey – Nice blog, just looking around some blogs, seems a pretty nice platform you are using. I’m currently using WordPress for a few of my sites but looking to change one of them over to a platform similar to yours as a trial run. Anything in particular you would recommend about it? The first thing to understand about colitis disease is that it’s a disease of your gastrointestinal system.

    This is a really good read for me, Must admit that you are one of the best bloggers I ever saw.Thanks for posting this informative article. And that’s what’s great about the sit down exercise bike.

    I was beeing trying to find the Web for such info and i wanted to thank you for this post. Also, just off topic, where can i find a copy of this theme? – Regards

    Menu is a little odd to me and it’s a little over priced. Food is okay, not great and I expected a bit more out of the experience.

  • Writermd

    Tired of green beer and dodging projectile . . . on St. Paddy’s Day? Mulleady’s is offering something different; a sit-down dinner with choices of four courses, and of course some libations along with soft Irish music. Check it out at their website.

  • Sam

    You cant miss the really big urinal in the men’s room unless you pee yourself first!

    • Krista

      I had to sneak into the men’s bathroom to see it, its huge!

  • Remorywa

    We live about three
    blocks away and avoid the restaurant. Mulleady’s increased their prices,
    decreased their portion sizes, and limited the variety on the menu. We used to
    visit Mulleady’s at least once every two weeks. Then, slowly but painstakingly,
    they started swapping out our favorite foods and beers with new menu items.
    Even the staff seems frustrated….”I know–everyone liked that. I don’t
    know why they discontinued that item on the menu.”

    Long story short:
    one of our favorite restaurants has turn into a thumbs down.

  • Scott

    I will second remorywa’s comments.  This place used to be pretty good but it now only average at best.  I really hope it turns around in 2012…  Please get a solid menu and one brings back real fish and chips and shepard’s pie!!

  • Mr. Emerson

    Agree with the last few posts. Was our favorite place to go at least 3-5 times a month and now with the raised prices and limited menu it is more of a once every few months type place. When we asked the wait staff where some of the prior staples, that we loved, had gone they say that the owner doesn’t want it to be “that type of place.” Apart from making the menu very limited and specialized, it is the seemingly money driven decisions like eliminating more affordable options and not including fries with burger and sandwiches that basically kill it as a go-to neighborhood option for frequent visits.

    I respect that it is the owners choice, but very sad for us as it was the best magnolia pub for good food. Guess they care more about what critics and a few foodies have to say than the loyal neighborhood folks that visited often. Still a cool place, just not nearly as good as it was. From the last few visits, seems like the few of us on here aren’t the only ones finding new go to spots. And with the magnolia pub sticking to their old tricks of new owners, bad food and even worse service, it means that we need to leave the bluff now.

    Mr. Emerson, Scott, & Remorywa-

      Appreciate the feedback all of you.  Yes we did limit our menu as the cost of food has risen, not all changes were the correct and we’ve changed back in some instances (i.e. Shep. Pie).
      We/I am commited to serving good food made with (ideally) local ingrediants of the top quality.  Again, not everything we do is spot on and we are always open to change and suggestions from our friends and neighbors.
      Appreciate your business, thank you.
