We ate here on a Saturday night. It was busy but not crowded. The service was very efficient. My burger was delicious, and the chilli fries were great. The milkshakes weren't as thick as we recalled but they were still good. Not sure if the jukebox was working properly though, as the one song we selected never came on while... More

We have eaten in Eddie's a few times. always enjoy it. Can recommend the garlic mushrooms as they a yum. The chicken wings can be lovely with the Cajun sauce but they can be hit or miss.. when they are a hit they are great. Can recommend the chicken goujons, any of the burgers chicken or beef with secret ER... More

Food is very poor quality and waaaaay over priced. Side plate of nachos with cheese sauce ( tapas size ) for two kids €13.90. Bacon cheddar burger only. no salad\chips €9,25.. Carbonated minerals €2.75 each. Burgers were very dry. Hard to believe Eddie rockets is getting away with such quality and prices these times.

Went in here this morning with a bad hangover looking for a milkshake to go. Girl was very friendly. Anyway the milkshake took about 5 mins which wasn't bad but I saw my bus coming to the stop outside so had to run for it. The lovely lady followed me to the stop cause it took a while for people...

Sixties environment, with music that travels you back. I really enjoyed very much the salad, the burger with chicken fillet and the dessert, chocolate brownie with vanilla ice cream. Recommended !
