one of the best irish restaurants in the city! Beer is delicious, and ya gotta try the reubens--delicious! Nice irish environment, but sometimes a bit crowded. Overall, great place to spend a fri/sat night
Good Food, Bad Management!.
The food was good and our waitress was very nice, but very busy, not her fault! We got off to the wrong foot with this place. Coming from Chicago, I called ahead so we could have seating for 12 of us. I had "reserved" a room for our party of 12, someone from the place called to confirm the reservation, when asked if I needed to pay a deposit to hold the room, I was told no that they weren't busy it wasn't necessary. We were running a little late for our reservation, so I called to notify them and it wasn't a problem. When we got to Mo's, not only was our room taken, but it was like we were putting them out, by setting up a table for 12 of us!! When we finally sat, the hostess said a manager would be right over to talk to us. Well dinner came and went and we saw no manager. When our bill came I asked the waitress was the manager coming over to speak to us and she just gave me a deer in the headlight look. Finally, a manager came over and he was rude, plain and simple. He was very defensive and told me it was our fault for not booking the room & that we should of paid a deposit to reserve it. I explained my situation to him and he eventually said fine we'll take the appetizers off the bill! It was like I was asking him for his ATM and PIN number. I guessing this guy must of missed his hospitality class when taking mangement classes!! We never asked for anything to be compensated for, an apology would have done. Needless to say none of us will be in a hurry back!
NOT ON THE WEEKEND.
I do like to come here when there is nothing else going on downtown (concert, Bucks etc.) or on weeknights because if you come here on the weekend or when something is going on downtown GOOD LUCK. Parking is a pain, you will have to wait to be seated and you won't have a place to sit at the bar (these seats will be taken too) you will be reaching over people trying to get your drink. Once you are seated if you are downstairs you will have to deal with the loud band that they have playing on certain nights (as of last time I was there ~ Sept 06) and all the loud people at the bar, and if they seat you upstairs it generally is SO very hot. Thirdly the waitstaff is generally so busy you don't recieve the best of service, not that they do anything wrong, its just they are too busy to take care of all of their tables or so it seems. The food is good though and if you go when it isn't so packed and crowded it is a good time, just not on the weekends.
Fun in the city.
I really loved this place. It had excellent Pub food and a great assortment of beers. The live music was also very good. It has a friendly feel to it and is not too small or not too big. I also liked the TVs so I could watch sports. Fun, fun.
Amazing Music, High Energy, Great Food!!!.
Young buisness professional to baby boomer nearing the hill Mo's has got your number. Mo's provides the CLEANEST pub atmosphere I have ever been in. They have amazing food with a decent selection, and their salads are the best I have ever had at a pub in my life. With two stories, this is an amazing location with many different options so you can have a wild night with your friends or a quiet time away from the kids. It's proximity to the legendary Mo's Steakhouse and Mo's Cucina (Their Italian resaturant) do not hurt at all because it provides you with real options in how you want to spend your evening.
The very best part is the music. Their house band is without a doubt one of the best cover bands in Milwaukee and they bring consistent variety every night they are on stage. From Wednesday to Saturday you can hear anything from traditional Irish tunes to REM and David Gray. The cost? Free. It is the only Free live music venue that is open every week for that many days in the state. Never been to Mo's? Time to try! Tried and been unsatisfied? Time to go back. Mo's Irish Pub is the night spot for anyone who doesn't want bumping techno and hip hop, but still wants to have a great time.
Best Bar In Town.
this place is brilliant, the atmosphere the music and the food was amazin!!! the staff are extremely friendly, helpful and very courteous. the shepards pie was delicious and my friend from out of town thought that the Mos burger was the best one he had in years! very original.. And we were suprised to see real Irish people workin in the restaurant both serving and at the bar.. great touch!
the band was excellent... great experience!! Thank you Mo
Awesome Live Music.
This place has awesome live music! Food is good too.....nice selection of American and traditional Irish. Not a beer drinker, but everyone seems to enjoy the selection...I just wish they offered a little better wine.
