Arrived here hungry and got a decent table for two. Many people ordering breakfast - which is a massive amount of food. We had the stir-fry with Cajun chicken and a house burger. Neither awful or outstanding. Service was easily the worst we had on our vacation. Once we got our food we were ignored until time to ask for... More

I ordered the smoked salmon on brown bread which was exquisite and my daughter had a panini. The service was great and the portions were very large. A great stop if... More

Stopped here for dinner during our first night in Galway. Overall, it was a pleasant experience....the food was pretty good (burgers, chips, etc.), and the wait staff were very friendly. The place was slammin' busy, but we were waited on and got our food in a timely manner. Prices were reasonable, too. For the most part, a very nice experience.

I had 8oz Steak and my partner salmon. Both meals were extremely hot and steak was cooked perfectly. If we had more time in Galway we would... More
