We stopped in the night before the Flying Pig Half Marathon to "carb up", and after a short 15 minute wait where we sat at the bar, the hostess escorted us to a table. It was a crazy busy weekend in the towns of Cincinnati/Covington as there was the Flying Pig, a Reds game, and the Kentucky Derby (which I think makes all of Kentucky busy). The bar was busy with an eclectic group of people--all age ranges, (family friendly too), along with people dressed to nines for the Derby down to the average joes. We ordered the scotch egg, and fried pickles for an appetizer. Both were tasty. The fried pickles were long spears, with a nice flaky breading, and were served with a siracha sauce. The scotch egg was one hard boiled egg wrapped in sausage, rolled in panko crumbs and fried, served sliced in quarters. For our entrees we ordered the Bacon and cabbage (which is two pork belly slabs served in a creamy sauce with cabbage and potatoes), the fish and chips--tasty but pretty standard, and the montecristo (two slices of french toast sandwich of turkey and bacon, sprinkled with powdered sugar, and a sweet strawberry glaze drizzled over the top) which is very sweet fork type of sandwich and was really yummy, and served with a side of sweet potato fries. The food was great and the atmosphere was fun. On a side note we got to watch the Kentucky Derby--none of the horses we picked won.

Went on a Sunday around 11:30am. Had a good Sunday brunch menu and drink specials. I had a Guinness and my wife had mimosas. Great Irish pub vibe. Had premier league soccer on with many patrons cheering on both sides.

Not a very big place, but had a good down home neighborhood feel.

The Southbank shuttle has a stop right here. Its a great opportunity to jump on and off at several locations.

Recently stopped in here for lunch - last visited for dinner a number of years ago. This is a very good bar and restaurant - a destination for many. A wide selection of beers on tap and in bottles, very good food, and pleasant staff. No hesitation about coming back.

Stopped in with another couple who were familiar with Molly's for brunch. We all had mimosas which were lovely. I ordered the smoked salmon eggs Benedict which was very tasty. My boyfriend had the turkey and ham Monte Cristo with a raspberry and powdered sugar topping which he says is exactly what he expected. We also sampled the goetta which is a local sausage and oat dish. The wood work and decor were very quaint. There was an extensive beer menu to chose from. The wait staff was not very well trained or consistent with service but were friendly enough. Definitely worth the visit!

A very nice Irish pub. Soccer pennants hang on the ceiling to add to the flair. The place seems smaller and more intimate and more authentic because of it. I went there on a weeknight and it looked like things were pretty slow. The food was good and the selection of beer was not as great as some other places in the area. Still, there was enough selection I think anyone could find something they like.
