Mulligans on the Blue has a beautiful view. It’s halfway up the rolling green golf course, and the sunset is sweeping and nurtures the soul. There’s a lot of live music and plenty of famous musicians hang out here (and one or two have thought of buying it for themselves). The menu lists typical pub fare like shepherd’s pie (no), and burgers (yes), but the food is beside the point. Drinking a pint of tapped Guinness counts as a meal, right?
“Right,” say our Irish friends back home, unless they insist on drinking Murphy’s instead. At Mulligans, both are on tap (because we’re in Hawaii, not Boston, so we don’t have to choose sides in the stout controversy).
Service is not good, especially during concerts when the music is loud and the waitresses are overwhelmed by the number of diners and drinkers. We recommend if you order a few appetizers to go with your beer, you order everything up front and plan on going back to the bar to get your refills from the source.
There are as many games on as there are televisions (we counted eight at last visit), and the bar opens at 8am on the weekends so sports fans can have their oatmeal while they watch their favorite team.
