Alright, so everything you have heard about Mulligan's is probably true. No, it is nothing fancy. Yes, it is irish. Yes, EVERYTHING on the menu is under $5. And n, The service isn't great. Honestly though?? What do you expect, EVERYTHING IS UNDER FIVE DOLLARS. I have read a lot of reviews about Mulligan's and although there are the few that praise the place, there are always those unhappy suckers who complain about the service. Honestly, if I am walking into a place where I can eat an appitizer and an entree and have a beer for less than I can eat at subway, than I am not going to expect great service. If you want good service go to Fore Street where the servers make 20 bucks a table...
Okay, Now that my rant is over I will tell you all about it.
Mulligan's is a little Irish pub located in the heart of Biddeford Maine. Most of the people I mention it to know what it is just because every meal is under 5 dollars. When your food is good and cheap, word spreads. Now, I know what you might be thinking. If the meals are under 5 dollars they probably aren't very big. WRONG. I usually can't finish off the delicious pulled pork sandwich with french fries on my own. On a fat day you can even have gravy and shredded cheese added to the fries. We also usually get the buffalo wings for an appitizer. They are good, not hott at all, but good.
When you walk into the front door of Mulligan's you are generally not greeted by anyone. In the afternoon, which is when we usually go, you seat yourself and the server comes over. They may not be the most professional people, but they are nice and they are prompt and they certianly know what they are doing. In the afternoon it is not at busy as it is at night. In the evening you will be lucky to find a parking spot, let alone get in the front door. I would suggest, if you are going to go, to go in the afternoon.
Another minor flaw that Mulligan's has is the menu size. They don't have a huge menu, mostly just your regular irish courses. Also, they do not have take out. Eat in Only and no free soda refills (which is probably where they make their money).
Pulled Pork Sandwich with French Fries
The mulligan's menu. It's not big, but it's good.
However, their beer is cheap. We usually get a 16 oz bud light and it is only $2.75 cents. On St. Patrick's day we went and were able to have green beer. For those of you who don't know about green beer, it is simply just a beer of your choice with green food coloring added to it.
There is no difference to the taste, it is just green.
We love Mulligan's. It is walking distance from our house AND it is cheap. If you are spending ANYTIME in Biddefor Maine and don't want to spend a lot on food than I would highly recommend a stop at Mulligan's. It is located in downtown and is within walking distance of Tran's Market and Reily's Bakery.
