…because they are among my favourite things. No lie.
As far as patios are concerned, Molly Malones is among the best in Calgary. And if you’re like me and spend most of your time in the beltline, Kensington is a nice change.
That being said, the food is not good. It’s mediocre at best. If you’re going out for dinner in Kensington, Molly’s is a major miss. You’re better off hitting Marathon, Tandoori Hut, Brasserie, BottleHouse, or even Original Joe’s if you want the pub atmosphere.
All in all, Molly’s is great for drinking on a patio. The food is edible but not good, so assess your wants before going. If you just want to drink with friends it’s the place; good service, reasonable prices, good beers on tap, and a great patio. Just remember that the food is crap.
