There’s something exciting happening at mahony.

We wanted to create a unique, comfortable west coast pub experience perfect for any occasion—or no occasion at all.

We set out to create a menu that defined the art of casual consumption and sought a culinary partner that shared our vision of what a menu like this might look like. We were delighted that one of Canada’s best-known chefs, Vikram Vij not only embraced our vision, but embraced the opportunity to collaborate with our own Executive Chef Liam Dougall to bring this menu to life.

We are very proud to introduce our eclectic variety of amazing tastes and textures begging to be explored, enjoyed…and ultimately shared.

We hope finding your new favourites will be as much fun for you, as creating them has been for us.

We came here for the view and we weren’t disappointed! Their happy hour is 🤷🏻‍♀️ It was pretty disappointed.
The margarita pizza wasn’t anything special and the pork tacos were so bland.
But again, honestly came for the view

Very disappointed with the food (bland & ingredients didn’t match well together) was able to get substitute meal (chicken tenders as the burger my partner ordered was bland as well) although the second meal wasn’t much of an improvement from the first. Food took a long time despite quiet restaurant, and a long time waiting for drinks/service/etc.

Can't think of nicer place to spend a summer afternoon with friends than on the patio at Mahoney's! We've made it a tradition every summer that we visit Vancouver.

First time here.
Great good.
Great service.
Great view.

I mentioned on the booking that it was a birthday and the server went out of the way to make it a little special.

Tried the Dine Out menu on a Saturday night. Was told they only had 2 left of the entree I wanted and was lucky enough to get one of them, but surprised that they would have run out had we arrived later. 3 course meals were delicious and of good size, so much that I couldnt finish my entree and the huge delicious lava cake for dessert. The pub is very much a pub atmosphere but the rock music didn't seem to match the clientele that night. At least the music wasn't too loud. The Indian-themed menu also seemed strange given this is supposed to be an Irish pub, and we found the menu prices to be on the high side so the $25 dine out deal is a great deal. Our server was wonderful and I could see enjoying this place much better sitting outside on the deck in nice weather.

Reservation made for 9 people (6 adults and 3 kids) on Saturday, Jan 25 for dineout menu. 5 of us ordered the beef curry but was told that they only had enough for 1 order. This was 6.30 pm on a Saturday evening! I would have expected the chef to have the foresight to make more for the evening diners if they had ran out during lunch. It was very disappointing, we asked for a substitution but they wouldn’t allow it and I ordered their fish and chips (same size as kids portion but on a larger plate!). I didn’t enjoy it as the fish was small and salty. The Manager on duty told us, Dineout is dineout.
It was wasn’t even busy and appetizer took more than 40 mins to arrive. Our kids were starving!
Our server was good but she was limited to what she can do or provide us based on Mahoney’s strict policies. Not even a token gesture. This is obviously their slow season so something more could have been done to wow us as I remember going to the same location approx. 4 years ago, when it was much busier, receiving food in a timely manner, of good quality and service. This was a very disappointing experience especially as I raved to my friends about it. I emailed the General Manager 2 days ago but no response yet.

Sadly, for a birthday dinner I was very disappointed. Having made reservations with plenty of time to expect a decent table I was placed next to a large Christmas party. We were penned in with no view of anything even though the restaurant did not seem busy. I regret not asking for a different spot and another couple seated near to us did not stay where they were put.
The waitress was efficient and friendly. The food was ok. I was not impressed and will not recommend or return.

I love the Stamps Landing location and I've always enjoyed Mahony & Sons atmosphere and mood. This time, we were seated interior to the bar next to a very very noisy crowd despite a request in the booking for a window (I would have thought they could have put us on the second floor or somewhere else entirely) but the general atmosphere was still good.

Was disappointed in the menu change. Mahoney’s was great because of its unique and delicious Irish food, but now since they changed their menu it’s more of an Indian inspired cuisine, which to me is a bit odd considering it’s an Irish pub. Scenery and service is excellent, but the food, not so much. (The new menu, that is)

We went there to celebrate our sons graduation from UBC. While he was not at the table I asked our server if something special could be done; even an umbrella in his beer! No effort was made on her part. The food is mediocre at best. I ordered the salmon bowl. It was small, overpriced, and mediocre at best. The topping for this bowl was raw Bok Choi or similar. I can put something raw on top of a meal at home quite easily. I expected way more from this place. Our calamari appetizer was small, it was prepared well. I would maybe go back here for cold beer and one appetizer because the patio is nice. I would not go back for a meal.

Great experience by the fireplace. Beer was good; wished there was more variety. Food treated good with great portions. Ice cream was not good - when you can't finish Ice cream, there's an issue.

My 2 friends did not show up and I particularly appreciated that my server was very nice and attentive towards me. I also liked that there was an alternative to steak as I don't eat beef. The salmon was cooked to perfection and was delicious.
I always love the ambiance and music provided by Checo and I hope he comes back to play more often.

Location is excellent (where former Monk McQueens used to be). View on the harbour and Yaletown from the patio is hard to beat.

Service was ok.

Food was atrocity.

cajun "chicken" burger is 1/4 of the single chicken breast with 1/2 of slice of cheddar cheese. Looked like budget meal leftover from children menu.

Few leaves of "Cesar" salad were at least three days old, soggy and dark green going on grey.

The other plates on our table looked as sorry as the one described above.

I was actually shocked by the poor quality of food for such premium location. Or we made a mistake of choosing Irish pub for dinner instead of just drinks.

View was outstanding, service could definitely be better, food taste was ok but there was hair in the salsa (disgusting), a sliver of a hard plastic (tiny) in the poutine and shot glass had lipstick (yuk!). did not report the food issues as we ate half of it already before we came across the hair & plastic. we did return the shot glass with lipstick.

I recommend Mahony and Sons for their patio! You have an amazing view of downtown and you're right on the water. The food is okay, not overly amazing but not bad either. Would consider this restaurant a good option for the summer.

Menu is varied, anybody can find something. The grilled salmon was good. The only thing I didn't like is the cappuccino. It sounds like it is made with a machine and milk was not real (powder?). Tasted like chemical milk. I wasn't able to finish it.
