Bustling place with good American food

the place is always full. But it is efficiently run with grat staff. You can rely on it to grat good ,well made portions of chicken wings, sparre ribs and large sandwiches. Not cheap but not too pricey either. Stonethrow from the iconic temple bar. A good place for casual good old American dining.

Come here whenever I'm in Dublin for their chicken wings! Great location and trendy atmosphere. Had to wait in line for a table, but wasn't long.

Stopped by one evening - very busy place so best to pre-book a table. We had the wings as had heard good things about them. Small wings but very tasty. Service was a bit hit and miss - at one point I think they'd forgotten we were there. Would only recommend the wings and tbh there are a few places... More

Actually still sitting here whilst writing this review. Food was well below what I expect. This was my 3rd time here but first (and last) on a weekend. Today was a bit of a shambles. We arrived at 11:10 and were told that it would take half an hour for a table. We were given the option to sit and... More

We loved this little restaurant. The mussels were delicious. The cheese plate (with wonderful fresh figs and jam) was outstanding. My husband had a perfect omelet with smoked fish. The wait can be very long, and they do not take reservations. You must go there in the late afternoon to put your name in. Worth it.

It was 10:30, we didn't have a reservation but even in July we had no difficulty being seated. The staff are both friendly and attentive. We both ordered the big breakfast with extra ham. We were served promptly, with tea and toast. The extra ham was chunky and ample. The plate was not greasy, ans the individual items were hot.... More

We arrived at 9.00pm and the place was still full and had a great vibe. We asked for a table for 7 and they said to come back at 10pm. When we arrived back all staff were friendly and still very attentive and enthusiastic. We had the chicken wings to start and they were amazing. After a lovely dinner and... More
