This very popular venue that had been here for many years has now closed its doors. I am not sure what is going to happen to this large area of retail along Elizabeth Street. Whilst very popular for cheap drinks and eats, the quality of the food was average at best and people mostly went there for the cheap drinks... More

Like the title suggests, it reminds me of when I went to a few different places in Ireland a few years ago, as since I don't have Irish cuisine very often, my girlfriend found a deal online so had walked to this place while we stayed in the city a few weeks ago for a short break. I had sausages... More

Concur with previous review but would like to add that not only was the meal cold but the serving size was miserable. A few slithers of carrot, tiny morsel of cauliflower, four, yes, only FOUR green beans and mashed potato with hard lumps. I had been contemplating joining the club but after that introduction that won't be happening.

Went there just before Christmas for lunch and while the Bunratty bistro was serving the usual pub meals there was the addition of Asian offerings - what the???? Anyway, booked in for dinner on a Friday night in January to hear a visiting band. Took some relatives with me who are mad hibernophiles (lovers of everything Irish). I warned them... More

Unfortunately it appears the club has been taken over by Asian caterers. They are friendly enough but the daily specials have gone. As have the regulars and the atmosphere. Guinness and sushi is an interesting combination but not authentic Irish cuisine. Fortunately there are still some Irish pubs around brisbane that do have a bit of atmosphere.

This has all the hallmarks of a place destined to close... it used to be so very good! We were a group who booked for a Christmas lunch - we gave plenty of notice. The menu had changed substantially since our initial booking, not a good start especially as there were no vegetarian options available. After some preamble, we managed... More

Hate to be negative up front because the staff were really friendly, but the food from the Bistro is awful. No attention to detail ... Colcannon mash was bland, cold and lumpy ... Parsley sauce like water with parsley, and only a speck of parsley - disappointing. My guest had the BBQ pork ribs which had been boiled then presented... More

The Irish Club is a great place to have a meal and a drink. The staff are friendly and efficient and there is plently of atmosphere and very comfortable surroundings. There is an extensive menu at a reasonable price including a daily specials board.

My husbands daughter had her wedding here recently, the service was great and the meals were fantastic. The choices were chicken or steak and both were cooked to perfection and a very generous size. The bar service was fast and the wait staff were very polite and professional. The function room whilst it was old, was well sat out and... More
