Mulligan’s Grill, Ellisville, MO
Mulligan’s Grill – When you have your own private label bourbon, you have to know that you are doing something right. As a restaurateur, that has to be a proud accomplishment. Mulligans Bourbon is available at several stores around town.
Let’s face it, running a restaurant is much more difficult than it appears, which is why so many fails. There is an overwhelming amount of detail that demands the owners’ attention. When you see a successful and well-managed restaurant, it looks as though anybody could do it.
The owner of Mulligans Grill is one of those owners that makes it look easy. He is surrounded by young, well-trained staff. He pays attention to the detail and apparently has a good feel for the local crowd because he seems to please them enough that it is difficult to get out the door on a Tuesday night people are waiting to get in.
Honestly, all the reviews and ratings in the world do not mean much when you see a crowd like that on a Tuesday night. One popular restaurant rating site gives Mulligans an 85% with 168 votes. When you visit this place, you would expect a much better rating than 85%. Most of the patrons that we have visited with are regulars and have visited Mulligans for years.
Disregarding that review, we moved on to their Facebook page, where they have 696 Likes and have had 1818 visitors with 5 stars. Google has 17 reviews giving it a 4.2-star rating. Their Google+ page has been visited more than 215,000 times. Since our original review was published on March 28, 2014, their reviews have actually increased slightly, which says a lot about the establishment.
One thing that Mulligans Grill is not good at is self-promoting themselves. Why? They are busy and do not have time for self-promoting. They are not concerned with getting more business; they are concerned with taking care of the business that they have now. That says a lot; it tells me that he understands what keeps customers returning to his establishment – good food and service.
One of our biggest concerns is always cleanliness. This place is clean as you might expect. The food is good, the service is good, the prices are fair, and Mulligan’s has their own private labeled bourbon. It is an upscale bar and grill that has a broad menu offering something for just about everybody. Since our previous review, they have added an outdoor seating area, which is probably not big enough to facilitate the increasing demand, but they were limited with space.
We recommend Mulligan’s Grill and give it a 4.25 Star Rating. We are confident that after 20 years of business, you will like Mulligans Grill too. There is no rush to get there because this place will be there – failure is not in their future.
Mulligans Grill is located on the NE corner of Clarkson & Manchester Rd at 11 Clarkson Rd, Ellisville, MO. Phone (636) 391-6880 or visit their website.
We congratulate the owner and his entire staff on a job well done and RECOMMEND that your visit to Mulligan’s Grill.
