Meg O'Malley's

I took these this past Saturday when Lovely Wife and I were in Meg O'Malley's in downtown Melbourne, Florida for lunch.

It's supposedly an Irish pub, but everybody I know down here loves to go there to eat.

I'm one of those people who LOVE plain, simple food. I can watch gourmet stuff on TV that I wouldn't touch with a ten foot pole. I'm really simple when it comes to food choices.

Anyway, I had never been to O'Malley's and so we stopped in and had lunch. Quite tasty grub.

I liked the stained glass window of the castle above the front door.

The little carving of the leprechaun under the light was our table's light in the booth where we ate.

I've never been out of the U.S., so I wouldn't know an authentic Irish pub if one ran over me, but they had some rugby championship on the TV above the bar that we could see from our booth. So I guess if they had rugby on TV, it MUST be an authentic Irish pub. Right?

Looks like a fun place to chat and chew. Great indoor shot John.

We have an O'Malley's in Waynesville, but I don't think it's part of a chain. I'm with you, I prefer simple, casual food in a less pretentious restaurant. Most of what makes up "fine dining" is lost on me. Good captures in what looks like tricky lighting.
