Food was disappointing. My husband had the half rack of ribs and needed force with knife and fork to eat them. Left 3/4 behind. My fish was standard but ordered 2 piece and only came with one tartar sauce. Also where we sat the table beside us had a couple with a young kid that swore like truckers. Plus I went to the ladies room and a man walked in with a young girl and decided to take a leak in the stall beside me. I was so uncomfortable that I stayed in the stall until they left. So on that note we will not be returning.

We ordered from the "Restaurant Week" menu. Although food was good, it would have been nice of they had actual IRISH food on special

There were only two servers (that we could find/see) on a holiday Monday? Not great. Took forever for food/service but it was not the servers fault, she was trying!

Plus being a vegetarian, there were only two veggie mains and they were sold out of one of them....grrrr

The dessert menu was bizarre...five or six different kinds of cheese cake (I hate cheesecake) and a banana pie thing? Variety might be nice!

Plus side? The meat eating people liked their lamb burgers but their fries were cold, so was the tea...so depressing dinner out all around...

The best Irish pub I have been in since Waterford, Ireland. The food and service was well above what I was expecting. Would love to visit again.

Yumminess here always. Lots of great Irish dishes and beers. Lovely atmosphere and friendly staff. Food is always good. A gem of a restaurant in Niagara Falls that won't break the bank.

Food and service was excellent. Could have used a little more space because there were so many people at the table beside us,they had to be moved to an extended table right behind us...cramping us into the corner a wee bit. But all in all it was a very good dinner.

I ordered the baked haddock with lemon and herbs. This is why I rated the food very low. I did not like it at all very strong flavour it stayed with you I could not eat it. But the server refunded my money back which was fantastic. The rest of my family loved their meal.

I got the blueberry bbq pulled pork sandwich and it was awesome except I didn’t fully taste the bbq sauce until I asked for a side of it. It’s fantastic but you really can’t taste it at all on the sandwich. Cannot state enough how good that sauce is though, I would buy a bottle if I could.
Fries are gross to be honest, like McCain fries but worse.
Server was really nice and struck a nice balance of checking in but also leaving us alone to enjoy our date.

My choice for dinner was a sampling of Shepherd's Pie, Steak and Mushroom Pie, and Madras Chicken Curry. I'm not sure which of them was best; I guess the Shepherd's Pie because that was the only one I was able to finish. Delicious. My husband was very happy with the Fish & Chips. Nice evening!

Food is always amazing but service is always subpar....little customer attention (asking for drink refils or trying to get the bill) and no server interactions...like talking to robots

It was good but there is very limited gluten-free options. I would expect more from a restaurant in a tourism city.

We went here after reading excellent reviews. Having been to numerous Irish pubs around the world, this one, unfortunately, was sub par. Really wanted to like it, but service was slow and the food was dull. I had the fish and chips and it came out nearly burnt. The chips weren’t bad, but the fish could’ve been a bit better. As a matter of fact, each meal anyone at our table had wasn’t the best. And to top things off, paring is HORRIBLE! Do yourself a favor and try another restaurant. You’ll be glad you did.

I would recommend this restaurant for a reasonably priced family style meal. The food we had was hot, did not have to wait too long for it and enjoyed drinks while waiting. My only dissapointment was that the french fries were not as hot as they could have been but overall a good meal.

Fun night dining at Doc Muggiligan's Irish Pub. Was recommended by Airbnb owner. Made a reservation for 7:15 pm. Glad we did reserve. Told at the door there would be a 45 minute wait for a kitchen order. Decided to stay & watch the Blue Jays on tv while waited for dinner. Was not disappointed! Had the Fish Pie- shrimp, scallops, mashed potatoes covered in cheese with a garden salad. Was delicious. Husband had the Sheppard's Pie which was home style with side salad & said was very good. Husband had an Irish lager beer & myself drank water. Live band was coming on at 9:30 we were told but we left when they arrived as had a long day of driving.
Only negative was the very long wait for food to arrive, but we were warned Unsure why kitchen staff weren't prepared as was a Friday night, busy in most restaurants so thinking they would be prepared with extra help! Overall, great fun & would recommend & return when in Niagara Falls.

The food is always delicious and they also have a yummy kids menu for our young children (7 and 4).
We've been to several restaurants within the city and nothing compares to Doc Mcgilligans. We seem to always come back here, and will continue to do so.
