Great Live Music!. We stopped into Mo's Irish pub after a huge meal at Mo's steakhouse, who knew they had live music? The band was great! They played fun traditional irish songs and modern rock that you can sing along to.
Stylised seating upstairs, nice ambience.
Beat the crowd downstairs and head upstairs. Try and get a table in the small stylistic room overlooking Wisconsin Avenue. The decor is dark and elegant, the book cases on the walls contain inumerable Reader's Digest selections, and the view looking out of the window is great. You can watch a lot of the upbeat Milwaukee crowd walk past as you enjoy dinner.
The menu for late-nighters is fairly limited, keeping with the Irish style. Vegetarians are severely handicapped. The potato wedges are traditional Irish and recommended.
A word of caution. If you want to use the restrooms, during the rush bar hours, be prepared for a long wait since they are very limited.
An upscale take on the Irish pub, with authentic Irish meat-and-potato delicacies and perfectly poured Guinness..
Downstairs, it's similar to the faux-antique Irish pubs that are popping up everywhere. Upstairs, the dining experience is quiet, dark and stylish. With just a candle lighting each table, reading the short menu can be a challenge. Service is friendly and any questions will be answered.
Start off with mussels for a tasty treat: The mussels are plump and drizzled in a creamy garlic-wine sauce. (Note: It's a rather skimpy portion for the price.) All the main courses are authentically prepared and served with flair. Shepherd's pie arrives in a metal bucket--thick, beefy stew topped with mashed potatoes. Corned beef and cabbage is also a winner, with corned beef sliced thin and buttery soft. Try a boxty for something different--it's an Irish burrito, but instead of a tortilla, your filling (some variation on beef and mushrooms, usually) is wrapped in a large potato pancake.
