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).

One of the best restaurant reviews I've read in years... thanks for the laugh Clem.

I never walked out of a restaurant before. Ignored by the staff. When they finally bothered to take the order ignored again. One hour plus into this stink hole they finally bring the drinks and the kids meals. My kids are great eaters especially when starved by such an outrageous wait time. They immediately started to gnaw on their chicken tenders... Literally gnaw. The things were still frozen inside. Tried to explain why you shouldn't serve raw frozen chicken to the vapid shell of a waitress to no avail. You would think a manager would be interest invthe commotion. Absolutely not. Ignored. When I got the family marching to the door I felt like a fool towing two starving and now crying kids who don't know salmonella isn't supposed to be served for dinner. Threw 40 bucks over my shoulder. What do they say about the fool and his money.... Should have listened to the wife and just bolted. Go to Bahia. Fast. Considerate. Delicious. This place is awful.

Did the author of this article actually eat here or just spout out words? Nicole?
Terry October 01, 2011 at 02:23 PM
The worst ever. Waitress was completely rude and ignored us for approximately an hour, the manager who looked like he was about 15 was even worse. I wonder if they'll ever learn when your customers are upset about lack of service talk to them, don't run the other way and avoid eye contact at all costs. What's up with the bar service? The excuse we got when we arrived was the bartender never showed up, they had barbacks behind the bar, but we couldn't order a drink, we could have soda though! (HUH!?!?!). We should have run after that instead of wasting time for an hour & a half waiting for a table and food that never arrived. We left and went to Good ol' Billy's

My husband and I were just talking about going to Biddy Mulligan's. Thanks to these reviews, we won't waste our time.

Food was mediocre at best. I had Shepherds Pie, which at a fancy new "Irish" restaurant you would expect to be good, but it was like a loosely packed meatloaf with a pastry crust on top. And I agree with prior comments that much of the food was of "tv dinner" quality. I can't comment on the bar or night scene since we had gone early for lunch.

Can't be as bad as Billy's Beach Cafe half way up the block!! Billy's has the worst service of any establishment on the south shore!! Guess they pool their tips there or give them to charity because the service is atrocious!!
Clem October 01, 2011 at 10:13 PM
As I said, typical George Martin McRestaurant. All his places are like this, but in a young town like Long Beach and Rockville Centre, fools have no problem spending good money for this gruel.
gg October 01, 2011 at 10:45 PM
Sounds gross! Long beach can do better! Let's boycott this Mickey mouse joint!
Clem October 01, 2011 at 11:12 PM
About half of them are good. None are consistantly outstanding. But this is a town where you can't even find a luncheonette that cooks with butter.
Billy Boy October 02, 2011 at 04:14 PM
Been there a few times- after 7 the bartenders spend their time BSing with each other until you flag them down for a drink. They are pretty quick to grab your money off the bar if you get up. Food was ok, once but I had food come out burnt- I mean burnt, the manager apoligized and sent it back, so I had to wait another 20 minutes.
Wilbur October 02, 2011 at 05:24 PM
Ok Tom Or Mr Bahia Owner, which is kind of lame as well.. It's not that bad. I have tried to eat the food there a few times, the manager is nice, the staff is ok and the service is fast. You weren't eating raw chicken, come on.. Sounds like you forced your kids to eat salmonella, that would be bad parenting... The food is aweful ,but don't make shit up to plug another bar.
longbeachlady October 02, 2011 at 08:50 PM
So sorry to read such negative comments. Three of us ate there last night and all had the Shepherd's Pie and quite frankly we all enjoyed it. BTW, the top is potato and pastry. Our waitress was Nicole and she was very attentive. A young man came over to say hello and his name was Joe. He is the manager. I have had a Burger there in the past and I also found it to be quite tasty. Also, you can have whatever you like on it. The price was reasonable. We did fine the jukebox was much too loud and continuous, but it was a Saturday night and busy. The furniture and decor in the back dining area is not appealing at all. Thought maybe it was suppose to be Biddy's kitchen but it doesn't work. Other that that, I would go back again.
Czar October 02, 2011 at 09:23 PM
Was there for the first time last week. Bar staff was fine. Food was not great. I basically agree with the majority of the comments about the food.
longbeachlady October 03, 2011 at 02:35 AM
Sorry, I needed to type - Shepherd's pie topped with potato not pastry

Is it just me or do most of these posts appear orchestrated to harm this business by making it seem that many posters found this place to be unsatisfactory? I have never been to Mulligans by the way.
tom October 03, 2011 at 02:31 PM
OK, so after my fist ever posting regarding a restaurant I figured I'd check back and see what the rest of my neighbors are saying. This is Long Beach, a small town with neighbors who look after one another. I posted my comment simply as a buyer beware. With that in mind I return to the patch and see Wilbur's comments. Reader notice how he said he tried to eat the food there, and such language, my oh my!! Initially it got my ire up. I immediately thought who is this pompous cretin, that has the gall to question my motivation, my integrity, my honesty and my my parenting!! I forced my kids to eat...., what the....I'll force my boot up your.... Then i realized that i should take the higher road. This dramatic change occurred after I had an epiphany. Wilbur, Wilbur? Where had I heard that name before, hmmm?? Oh thats right the pig from Chalottes Web!!!! I guess you are used to eating swill. If you would like to continue this conversation off line, let me know, we can meet for a good ole' cup of joe and some feed corn. My treat.
Shaun October 03, 2011 at 06:52 PM
Without saying if I agree or disagree with your review, this is by far the best thing I've read on the internet in a long long time
Shaun October 03, 2011 at 06:54 PM
Take a look at my thoughts from August - and yes, I actually ate the food http://www.seabythecity.com/?p=3654
long Beacher October 03, 2011 at 08:42 PM
Whoever said that Biddy Mulligan's was a George Martin restaurant, better go back and do some further homework. Because it is NOT.
PimmsCup October 03, 2011 at 10:20 PM
I rarely go on these type of sites because they hardly ever offer any kind of informative information. Just a bunch of people with agendas whether they be personal or business, spewing out crap they thought they heard their brothers, sisters, uncle tell the neighbor. If you truly have a bad experiece somewhere, isnt it more wise, and not to mention mature, to tell the staff or the manager than to go on line like some 3rd grade tattle tale saying how disgusting it is? Not to mention those of you who have your information about the food and the owner all wrong, which proves you've never stepped foot inside! The food is pub grub. It's great for what it is. Everything tasted fresh and right on par with all the other bars that serve food. Not better but certainly not worse. I've never had a problem with it. Service seems fine to me. It's usually way too hot in the dining room and it's much too loud for dinner time but other than that, I found it to be a nice addition to Long Beach and to the east side. Keep these sites for people who actually want to know about a new place. Not for personal vendettas.
chris g October 04, 2011 at 04:56 PM
You are an uninformed moron. Its not a george martin restaurant, its owned by the owners of Stinger's. You love to spew misinformation as fact but you have no clue
tom October 08, 2011 at 01:01 PM
You can tell the staff and manager all want but....The staff and manager have to give a crap.
mark October 14, 2011 at 08:23 PM
If that was the case then how come you dont have people complaining about the food at Sutton or at Mateos? Its because everyone in LB knows their food is good. No one would believe for a sec if people were writing the same complaints about those places.
Eddie October 15, 2011 at 12:33 PM
Microwaved, swill expertly prepared in some Texas warehouse last month.
anna October 27, 2011 at 11:43 PM
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
laocoon January 29, 2012 at 07:12 PM
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.
True Colors Shining Through January 29, 2012 at 10:32 PM
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.
