I've been to Ireland several times and I will tell you this is as close as you will ever get in NYC. This place is great, authentic Irish pub atmosphere, great service and down to earth crowd. The food is excellent, always fresh and price is right. I can honestly say that this is the best burger I have ever had! Try Molly's once and you'll be a regular for life.

Molly’s was first established as a bar in 1895. During Prohibition (1920-1933) it operated as a “grocery store”, thus the name Shebeen, which means illegal drinking establishment (and Molly Malone’s, after a popular Irish folk song). In the mid 1930s, following the repeal of Prohibition, it again began to serve alcohol openly and the building’s three upper floors became a rooming house for transient workers. Believe me, this one of the best bars to escape the cold with friendly bartenders and a good mixed mellow crowd. Aside from the obligatory Guinness you can also get good ole traditional Irish fare like Shepard’s Pie and Corn Beef & Cabbage. Not only is Molly’s the best Irish pub in town, it’s one of the NYC’s best bars, plus it opens at 11 am! Read more at iheartnycbars.com

The bartender who served my friends and I last night may just be the nicest server Ive had in NYC. I feel bad today that I didnt catch his name, but he is the tall-ish Irish fellow among the staff. Other than the service, I really enjoyed the atmosphere and reasonably priced drinks, but the food was just OK (average fish and chips). I will definitely go back to Mollys when Im in the mood for a pint...
Picnics with a view, roller-skating nostalgia, and a party for gay headbangers.
