We were recommended to Chop House by our hotel, Roxford Lodge. Our server was Aine. She was very sweet and patient with our questions regarding the menu and many nightly specials listed on the chalkboard. The wine was a good pour and the selection was of fine quality. Cathy brought a huge platter loaded with speciality cuts of beef. She... More

If you are in the mood for some great meat, and some non beef surprises as well, go here! We went with a party of 11. With the help of our hotel, they squeezed us in on short notice. The service was great and the quality outstanding. Some people shared the humongous T-bone, it was outstanding. But so was the... More

Food is simply delicious !!! Ask for the filet mignon. Place is very charming, perfect for a pit before an Aviva stadium match.

This is a very good restaurant and reasonably priced. The food is excellent and the service friendly, efficient and fast. We ordered fish and chips which was fresh and well cooked and nicely presented. The seating arrangement is such that you have a view of the avenue which is tree-lined and pleasant. There was a good atmosphere and although they... More

This is not a place to go for a quiet, romantic dinner. It is busy, noisy and lots of laughter. It seemed like most of the diners were Dubliners rather than tourists which made it a lot of fun for us as we struck up conversations with some of the locals.That said, the food was terrific. Final note- I left... More

These folks have become arrogant since Mr. Bourdain's endorsement! They failed to honor our confirmed reservation, ruining our last night of vacation. No apology, just arrogance and non-existent customer service . Don't bother, there are plenty of great places to eat in Dublin. These folks don't merit your time.

I love food but dislike restaurants that try to turn the dining experience into some kind of social statement. THe Chophouse serves good food in a no-nonsense setting. Surf & Turf was great, sea food starters excellent. Wine list comprehensive. Prices a little high but worth the quality

This place is okay but not great, the trouble is that the pieces are high. Three of us visited and the food overall was pretty average but the bill at the end was expensive for what we had and the quality on offer.

From the outside it appears to be another unassuming, bustling corner pub but upon entry it is full of wonderful smells, welcoming smiles and a multitude of conversations. The staff were welcoming and very friendly. The food was fabulous! It felt like a family gathering - great food and conversation. Definitely worth a visit for those who enjoy great fare... More
