“Why go far when you can stay local?” That’s the burning question the neighborly crew at Maloney’s Irish Pub is asking patrons. They want you along with your friends and family to feel right at home at their Carrollwood location off of North Dale Mabry Highway; and with a great beer selection, mouthwatering menu and cozy atmosphere, how could you not?

Owners Todd Wingard and Brian Pfeiffer opened Maloney’s Carrollwood location in January of 2016, establishing it as the third in the Tampa Bay Area. Maloney’s Irish Pub, which also serves customers in Westchase and Downtown Tampa, is notorious for creating a both jovial and festive atmosphere year round.

Locals have made the pub their stomping ground, reveling in its savory food and excellent company on a regular basis. Maloney’s tends to anyone and everyone, calling upon customers of all ages with infinite appetites for food and fun. The pub is family friendly, encouraging a variety of customers to join in on the experience.

Maloney’s stays open later than most restaurants, giving customers the opportunity to stop by for a drink or a bite to eat after hours. The kitchen takes orders until 12 am on weeknights and 1 am on weekends. Patrons are welcome from 11 am to 3 am all week long. The fun doesn’t stop there though, as Happy Hour lasts from 3 pm to 7 pm Monday through Friday. As you can imagine, Maloney’s is ordinarily brimming with hungry customers on Friday nights. Extra parking is available in the nearby church lot for these occasions.

The staff at Maloney’s Irish Pub gives the word local a new meaning. Many of the employees, including owners Wingard and Pfeiffer, are Tampa natives. Tony, the chef at Maloney’s, has resided in Carrollwood for over twenty years. “We are happy to be in the area,” he says.

When it comes to attentive service, Maloney’s is second to none. Their employees are courteous, sociable people who go above and beyond to ensure your party returns a second and third time. The bartenders at Maloney’s are entertaining and highly efficient in their positions, leaving you with no reason to lose faith in their mixology skills. Maloney’s has had the same service staff since it opened at the beginning of this year.

Maloney’s has everything on the menu from traditional Irish fare to gourmet pub dishes. Among their most loved entrees are the Shepard’s pie, burgers, wings and fish n’ chips. Matt Selby, owner of Tampa Bay News & Lifestyles, had nothing but good things to say about the entrees he sampled when he accompanied me. He described Maloney’s staple Shepard’s pie as “just like the one his grandma makes.” After tasting The Stank Burger, Selby added “I’m not a big burger eater, but this one is very well-prepared. It has a ton of flavor, the perfect combination of spices and just the right amount of juices.” The jumbo wings come in a variety of unique flavors including Asian Sweet Ginger, Mango Habanero and Chipotle Jalapeno. Customers can scarf down a burger of the month, which changes every thirty days. The pub boasts homemade sauces, Shepard’s pie, burgers, onion petals and salads as well as fresh fish. Vegans and vegetarians are not excluded as Maloney’s Irish Pub has hummus, a veggie burger and many delicious salads on the menu.

Guests can stick to their go-to drink order or venture out and try a new one with liquors from Maloney’s fully stocked bar. Choose from specialty beverages including but not limited to the Irish Manhattan, Moscow Mule, Celtic Cosmo, Old Fashioned and The Maloney. Shots and drafts are also listed on the menu.

Inside the pub sits a lengthy, spacious bar top. Whether you have a party of two or a party of ten, Maloney’s is happy and prepared to accommodate. Customers can also dine on one of the many tables available for seating indoors or outside on the patio.
