good pub with good beer

I am not a beer drinker but my boyfriend loved this bar. We went here a couple of times and enjoyed it over our weekend in Dublin. We ate here as well and the food was good.

Someone at my work recommended this establishment for the beer and told me to try the Oyster Stout, which was ok, not great. I tried several other beers, but none really stood out as great. I had a different place picked out to eat, but the friends we were with couldn't make it any longer without eating so we ate... More

This review could have gone very badly for the Porterhouse, but the wonderful manager that was present on April 30 really redeemed this establishment for us. We started out with a potato soup and chicken skewers - both were surprisingly good. I ordered a chicken sandwich as my entree, and my husband ordered a burger. When our entrees arrived, I... More

The food we ordered came out burnt, with none of the toppings we ordered. My hamburger was scorched with a soggy bun, and they forgot my drink that I ordered until after I was already done with the meal. My husbands burger was also burned badly, although they did remember his drink. Would not recommend nor return.

The bar was extremely busy when we visited. The service was good and the beer excellent. However, the door staff could monitor the number of patrons better to give an idea of when or how soon food service is available. It's frustrating to be in a bar with so many customers and limited space. I'm sure on a quieter night... More

What a fabulous selection of real ale & stout. Recommend the taster tray, just the right size. Fishcakes and chicken skewers as with the rest of food was great value. Well worth a visit in Dublin.

Came across this place by just walking around Dublin. What a Gem we have found. Great decor and its surprisingly huge as its over three floors. it brews its own beers in sight which of course some were tried and loved after help from our server to find one that suited our tastes. If this is not for you they... More

Wide selection of craft beers from around the world, plus their own beers. Great food, live music, very friendly staff. If I lived in Dublin, it would be my local. And I would have no money because of it. The chicken wings are to die for - must try.

Feel this place is for tourists only. As a local I wanted to leave the second I walked in. Beer wasnt great. Far nicer venues with craft beer. Food was greasy and seemed only 1 step above fast food.
