Gordon Ramsay’s 24 Hours to Hell and Back: Patrick Molloy’s


Can Gordon Ramsay save the Hermosa Beach pier restaurant Patrick Molloy’s or has family tension cause an irreparable rift?

Gordon Ramsay is ready to save Patrick Molloy’s in this week’s episode of Gordon Ramsay’s 24 Hours to Hell and Back. With such a scenic backdrop and a popular destination, why isn’t this restaurant more successful? In 24 hours, the restaurant can get a new perspective on success?

According to FOX, this week’s episode of Gordon Ramsay’s 24 Hours to Hell and Back states “Gordon attempts to revamp Patrick Molloy’s, a family-owned American restaurant and bar located on the Hermosa Beach pier.”

Family owned restaurants can be a difficult scenario. Sometimes families bicker over items that aren’t necessarily helpful to a successful restaurant. Petty differences and competing viewpoints can have owners losing site of the big picture. Shouldn’t profits be more important than just being right?

If family squabbles are inhibiting good service, the restaurant isn’t going to be well. Even with a great location, poor service will keep people away. Why is it so difficult for a restaurant to understand that service is the key to success.

Thinking about this restaurant in particular, the location should have a built in audience. Hermosa Beach pier brings in both locals and tourists. In this particular area, a well-run American restaurant and bar seems like it should be a homerun. An approachable menu with variety would be key.

One interesting piece of information about this episode and restaurant is a little wrinkle that happened after filming. The Easy Reader News reported that Hermosa Beach Planning Commission rejected Ramsay’s restaurant re-design after the episode was filmed. The retroactive application was denied because re-design had too much of a “bar like” feel.

This scenario highlights the difference between good television and overall restaurant success. While the restaurant’s current Yelp reviews seem positive, this exposure should help the restaurant’s bottom line, for at least a period of time. Even if the restaurant looks slightly different than the television show, people will visit because it was featured on Ramsay’s show.

But, will people continue to visit the Patrick Molloy’s after its exposure on this FOX show? Only time will tell.
