Was excited to go eat brunch here. We got some pancakes and some chicken wings. The chicken wings were soggy and weren't very nice. The pancakes were only ok. Restaurant was almost empty when we walked in but we were given a tiny table in the corner because the other tables were apparently all booked. but even after we had... More

The food was fine, but reminded me very much of what you'd get Applebees or TGIFridays or the like. And their beer selection is terrible!

We came across this restaurant after a stroll by the marina. Having read the reviews I was really looking forward to it. A group of 5 we all had different mains. While they were editable and big portions they weren't that tasty. I wouldn't be rushing to go back here.

Went with two friends today with no expectations, just a craving for some chicken wings. When we saw the menu we decided to try a bit of everything, wings, calamari, mussels etc. Good amount of food, all of which tasted amazing. Best skinny chips I've ever had in Dublin. The service was good and the place is extremely child friendly... More

The restaurant is interesting inside and there was plenty of buzz which was nice. The food just wasn't great. We ordered chicken wings and potato skins, which come with various toppings, to start. The wings were nice, the house buffalo sauce was nice and hot. But the potato skins weren't potato skins... We were served chunky potato wedges on a... More

The trick is to ask for extra hot sauce with them as sometimes they can be quite dry (still nice though, i just love them with loads of sauce) better wings than elephant and castle, blue blue bar etc. The potato skins are amazing, they are more...
