"There are no strangers here, only friends you haven't met yet." is Malarky's motto borrowed from author/poet William Butler Yeats and they stand by the motto as if it was their mission statement.
There seems to be a consistent theme with giving away the top spot on this list to an Irish Pub for the Orange County areas on YAHglobal.Com. Its as if people spy a green sign with a shamrock somewhere in the vicinity and they are magically (yes, like Frosted Lucky Charms) drawn in droves, arms outstretched and hands ready to grip a guinness stout. Regardless if you have a drop of irish blood in your veins you're made to feel like family (drunken uncles included) by staff and patrons alike. Malarky's is no exception to this soon to become rule.
Since 1977, Malarky's has provided a bar stool and elbow room for locals and tourists together, to trade stories and tap pints in toasting unison. Our best tip is this; locals know to get there early in the evening for dinner and set up camp well into the night to avoid the building line up outside. It will get packed so you should follow the lead and do the same.
