Kick Back at Biddy Mulligan's Irish Pub

East End's newest pub-restaurant houses a casual atmosphere with great food and drinks.

As a new establishment, Biddy Mulligan's Irish Pub has a lot to offer Long Beach’s dining and nightlife scene.

The restaurant-pub at 22 East Park Avenue opened its doors in July and has since proved to be a prime location for casual eats or drinks with friends. The restaurant features a simple menu, but is sure to cover all the major necessities such as juicy burgers and steaks, as well as a selection of seafood and salads. In addition to traditional dishes, Biddy Mulligan's also whips up some delicious Irish specialties that are hard to find elsewhere in town.

Décor: On any given day customers can expect a bit of a crowd at Biddy Mulligan's. Luckily, in addition to the main dining room and bar area, the restaurant houses an expanded dining area in the rear. At the front of the restaurant lies a small outdoor patio with outdoor seating and a smoking area. The walls are dotted with several flat screen televisions for patrons to enjoy the excitement of any big game.

Drinks: The bar pours quite the selection of homeland favorites like Smithwick's Ale, Guinness Stout, Killian's Irish Red and Magner's Cider. More local choices are available as well, including Blue Moon on tap or Yuengling in a bottle. During happy hour, everyday until 7 p.m., all beers and mixed drinks are just $4 at the bar.

Appetizers: A patron favorite, the Irish Nachos ($5.95) are served up smothered in cheddar and mozzarella cheeses, scallions and bacon bits and are generous enough to share at a full table. The Biddy's Sampler ($11.95) can satisfy any palate, offering a combination plate with wings, potato skins, chicken tenders and mozzarella sticks. Other starters like the Mussels ($8.95) or Baked Clams ($6.95) aren't as filling but are still a tasty choice.

Entrees: When it comes to the main course, Biddy Mulligan's gives diners an array of choices. If you're looking for a specialty item, the Irish Bangers and Mash ($11.95) are a popular selection, offering a filling serving of four Galtee Irish sausages with mashed potatoes, bachelors beans and a side of gravy. Seafood lovers should try the Salmon Knowledge ($15.95), a 10-ounce filet marinated to perfection and drizzled in seasoning and a signature Irish whiskey sauce. A list of burgers, including vegetarian options, and steaks also fill the menu and can be cooked to order at each patron's request.

Desserts: If you have a sweet tooth, don't forget to test out the dessert at Biddy Mulligan's. The Bailey's Cheesecake ($4.25), a decadent slice that melts in your mouth, is a must-have, along with the along with the chocolaty Biddy's Brownie ($4.75).

I didn't eat there because the menu just didn't appeal. I'd suggest they add some sliders and wings - pub food. I am glad there is a real bar on the east end though, and the drink specials are good

Guess they paid Patch to advertise as their one-star rating has been removed. Still, every meal comes out of its own poly microwave pouch. It's a shame that the chef has trouble setting that microwave dial. Maybe they should color-code the dial and the bags.

Earth to Biddy Mulligan: Ya got nice ice cold beer and a good juke box, but awful food preparation; ya got a decent bar area, but and ugly dining room. Get a new chef and and spruce up the dining area or else eliminate it, expand the bar with some booths for two or four around the edges and just serve really good appetizers - quesadillas, sliders, fried shrimp and clams, and so forth,. Otherwise your days are numbered. I tried it once and will not go back, except if I'm just looking for a cold brew. Fix the problems and I'll give it another shot. As it stands I can't recommend that anyone go there for dinner.
