This local was recommended by my hotel hosts, it located in Ballsbridge at a very busy intersection. Like any other pub it noisy, very noisy and one wonders why they have the sound system on? I waited about 15 minutes during which they apologize for the delay. If you are an american expect to get a glass with ice, which... More

I was pleasantly surprised with our recent trip to The Chophouse. The food was really lovely and the staff excellent. Of note, the manager recommended different starters and main courses for us, after asking what we liked. I ended up ordering something completely different to what I had originally picked from the menu so that was great. I loved what... More

Went this evening for a meal and had a steak, great taste and fantastic service. Reasonable price. Only complaint was the menu could have had slightly more choice on it. Will go again when I am back in Dublin

I'm not good about making plans ahead of time. I called the restaurant about 4:00and asked about a table. The gentleman told me he had an opening at 5:30. I said we will take it! We arrived about 15 minutes early and were seated promptly. We chose the oysters as a starter from the specials board and the tuna. Both... More

Near Aviva stadium and slightly further from RDS stadium in Ballsbridge, Chop house is far more than an average gastro pub. The atmosphere is warm and more like a restaurant. Famous for their several kinds of steak, the menu offers more than beef alone. The staff is most friendly, food delicious and besides that you can enjoy some nice irish... More

A Christmas lunch with friends brought me here. The location is good and the views from the windows keep you interested. The service is friendly and cheerful, while the place has an interesting selection of beers. The food, however, is not particularly memorable. After each course I found myself thinking “OK”, rather than something more enthusiastic. Starter, main, desert, coffee... More
