Since 1977…

Warm pub atmosphere known for its hearty family-friendly breakfast, lunch and dinner. Go where the locals go and start your day with an Irish breakfast at Malarky’s Irish Pub, a Newport Beach staple with a long, rich history. Founded over 40 years ago in 1977, little at Malarky’s has changed over the years. Just take a look at the old picture frames that surround the bar with memories of past and present. If you’re looking for a true local’s spot, look no further than Malarky’s Irish Pub.

The warm and inviting family-friendly pub and restaurant offers the best breakfast on the peninsula. Start with an Irish coffee or Bloody Mary, then order up any one of the house favorites such as the Corned Beef Hash or Biscuits & Gravy. But if it’s lunch or dinner you are after, Malarky’s is known for its Irish Stew and some of the best weekly specials in town. Expect good sized portions so bring your appetite and your family, too! Breakfast, lunch and dinner is served to all ages.

When at Malarky’s toast your neighbor with the pub’s motto, “There are no strangers here, only friends you’ve not yet met.”

We serve breakfast, lunch, and dinner to all ages. We serve alcoholic beverages throughout the day to all adults with valid identification, but after dinner hours we must ask that all patrons under 21 years of age leave the building.

Dining & Nightlife

Malarky’s is open from 7:30am daily and serves a full breakfast menu and hot fresh brewed coffee. Weekend brunch specials are available, along with free Wi-Fi for you to catch up on your morning news and emails if you choose to bring a laptop or mobile device in.

We serve a full lunch and dinner menu daily, all day. Some new additions to our revised menu is our gourmet hamburger menu, signature chicken sandwich menu, and prime rib sandwich menu. We have created a variety of tasty combination plates made with fresh ingredients and served with your choice of side: french fries, sweet potato fries, onion rings or tater tots.

While boasting a delicious menu and affordable prices, Malarky’s is also known for its lively after hours. The bar is a local hotspot, and Orange County residents and tourists come to Malarky’s on both weeknights and weekends to enjoy the social atmosphere, friendly service, and great drinks. You might want to come early to avoid the lines; you can always join us for dinner and guarantee your spot inside!*

*Due to the current pandemic, Malarky’s after-hours are on hold. Our regular daily hours of 7:30am-2am will be reinstated once the situation has changed.

Honoring Strength in Community

Malarky's honors the greatest tradition of a true Irish pub, in that it has a strong connection to its community.

Malarky's is a part of many people's lives, and wants to make sure it can give back all the love that people bring into its home. That's why Malarky's believes its important to support the schools, businesses, service centers, and the people in the community, especially when they need help.
