Bang average steak and quite expensive for what you get. I had the ribeye and could have got one in Tesco and cooked it better myself. Won't go back.

Although McKirdy's was sold out we where lucky enough to get squeezed in at opening time (5pm on Saturday 6th December '14) and am I glad we did. The best meal we have ever had!! Great service by all the staff who where funny and extremely professional. The food was simply perfect. We had the Sirloin which was incredible. I... More

This place is very expensive for what you get. Its almost £30 for a small steak. The steaks are decent quality but honestly if you have even basic cooking skills go to the butchers and cook one yourself! I thought a steakhouse would have really nice big jucy steaks- wrong! They are really small. The chips are also very poor... More

I could see one chief happily working and another pair of mans hands working frantically. It was extremely busy with only two floor staff. A whisky arrived at... More

Excellent, unpretentious meal in Edinburgh City Centre! Service is brilliant. Can't recommend this place enough, definitely go if you are in Edinburgh and love a steak.

We ate here on a Sun evening (Sat eve was full to capacity) and can onky say that the burger wss the juiciest I have ever tasted. Anywhere. A great menu of varied meat dishes with lots of burger choices (can highly recommend the burger with Haggis). Perfect crispy chips and all scalding hot. Go there!

We walked here - about a 20 minute walk from our hotel and thought it was worth finding it as we had read the reviews on Trip Advisor. We weren't disappointed. Our steaks were excellent. Great food and the staff were excellent. If you enjoy good steak this is the place for you. The kids loved the burgers which were... More
