Great Corned Beef Sandwiches on St. Paddy's day. Great Beer too! This is one of those restaurants that has been around for years and just keeps ticking.

Muldoon's is really awesome! This is a real Irish Style Pub with a menu full of yummy dishes to match. The enviroment in this joint will not let you down. You can eat in the courtyard with live music, and yes it was good live music, or you can take indoor seating. It is one of the closest restraunts to... More

This is the place we go to meet with friends and enjoy a good hamburger. It has the look and feel of a pub, but it's here in Newport Beach. The food is always good, friendly service, free parking. Checkout the menu online, something for everyone.

We came her to unwind after a long day of meetings. They have an extensive selection of beer. We didn't stay for food but they have a full menu. The Euro Cup was on the telly. It was great.

On June 11,2016 I visited Muldoon's again. The menu has changed little over the past three years but the food remains as good as ever. There were several groups for Graduation day in the pub and lots of other folks and some of them were Irish! I had the Irish Stew and it was great. I wish they had cut... More

My wife and I had lunch at Muldoon's on two days of our four day visit to Newport Beach. One day was lunch with a large group of about 20 people and the second day was a more intimate family brunch with a group of five people. The service and the food were both superb on each day. I swear... More

One of my favorite places to eat in Newport Beach. High quality food and drinks, great atmosphere, and excellent service. The restaurant features a lovely dining room, an outdoor dinning area, and 2 cozy pubs for more casual dinning. I have eaten here for breakfast, lunch, and dinner and have always had a great experience. The pubs offer a very... More

This is a wonderful Irish-themed restaurants, with a lot of beers available. I particularly like their appetizers -- they have some sausages that are served with a mustard sause, and some lamb chops, all of which I can complain about is that they're too small! I tend not to be a fan of quick breads, but their house bread is... More

Great atmosphere, food, service! John was our server and he has a great personality. Wished they sold the guiness glasses. They are very nice! Hubby says best Black and tans and Irish coffee ever had! Had Irish stew and trifle for dessert. Stew meat is beef and not lamb. A little heavy but good! Will definitely go back again!

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!
