We ate in this restaurant before attending a concert in the odyssey. We had to queue outside for nearly an hour. There was empty seating during this entire hour. When a member of staff was asked why this was, we were told 'well the waiting time would be the same". We tried to tell her we would rather wait inside... More

Hadn't read the reviews before eating here, the food is ok nothing special. The service was good, but could do with spending some money on an up to date menu, as it is like going back into the 80's.

Place is outdated, food is basic you could make it at home, menu is outdated the place needs a complete revamp. It gets 2 stars because the place was clean and the staff were friendly.

Went to Soda Joes this evening in the odyssey arena belfast. The food was good however the customer service and general attitude of the staff was pathetic. I certainly would not advise visiting. To make people queue outside for approx 40 minutes when there are 4-5 free booths next to the bar is unbelievable. Following this long unnecessary wait some... More

The impression of an American Diner made us try here for dinner-the place is very tired and run down-there are ripped seats and general repairs needing done everywhere. There is a very very very very very limited vegetarian option-which in this day and age is not good-there are only 2 options-a burrito or veggie burger! The drinks order was taken... More

Went tonight to have a meal before going to the SSE for a show, the worst service ever! Got sat at our table and the waiter didn't even ask for our drinks order! Took 20mins for us to get our drinks and 1 starter. Made to wait again after finishing the starter before our main came which seemed forever. The... More

Needs a complete refit, very shabby. Food took ages and wasn't that appetising when it arrived although the ribs were really tender the sauce was awful. They had no diet drinks. Staff were fine but we had to go looking for someone so we could pay the bill.

I went with my friends for food before the cinema. It took half an hour to be served then an hour for food. Missed our movie. The food was below average and clearly just thrown together. Never again!!

I have never wrote a review before and i am usually far to lazy, but after going to this "restaurant" before an ice hockey match I knew I was going to have to do something. Why I can't give this place 0/5 like it deserves is annoying me because the one green dot it has is far more than it... More

Visited on 14 November (Rod Stewart concert) so expected it to be busy. Very few staff on, apparently 3 had phoned in sick. Staff who were there were rushed off their feet but were very helpful and pleasant. I had chilli which was lovely and my friend had a chicken burger which she enjoyed. Very disappointed that they had run... More
