MOLLY MALONE’S IRISH PUB (Louisville, KY - Dining)
933 Baxter Ave., Louisville, KY 40204
Phone: (502) 473-1222
Type: An Irish Pub serving authentic food and a variety of beers
I have to confess right up front that I’m part owner of the restaurant. It was opened by a friend of ours and it’s sort of built to look like an authentic Irish pub. A lot of the building materials, the wood, etc., came from Ireland. We got involved in 2001, and it’s run by my brother Tadgh and Donal Ryan, a friend. We were named Louisville Bar Food of the Year in 2006. We serve anything from bangers and mash to shepherd’s pie to fish and chips. There are a world of different beers. My favorite dish is the lamb stew. It’s made with carrots and red wine, and I’m not sure exactly what else is in there, but it’s pretty darn good. It’s a destination point–it’s on Baxter Road, just after it intersects with Bardstown, about 10 minutes from the track and five minutes from downtown.
