Nice food but be prepared for a long wait

We decided to pop into Joel's for a burger and hot wings with the kids whilst on a trip to Dublin. We were seated very quickly and the starters arrived super quick but then nothing for 40 mins. The kids were driven nuts waiting. The place was only half full and there were loads of staff mulling... read more

Family orientated American style restaurant adjacent to the Louis Fitzgerald Hotel. Extensive menu featuring a wide variety of foods from standard Irish fayre to American classics and oriental section. I defy anyone to leave this place hungry, portion sizes are extreme! Value, if you don't go overboard and be sensible then it's very good value.

Spending the day with my godchild today we decided to get something to eat and then on to the Cinema .For no other reason than the location being convenient , I reluctantly chose Joels. I say reluctantly as i have avoided this restaurant for a couple of years , for many reasons . My family and i had been regulars... More

A popular restaurant located just after Newland's Cross and thus a handy place to stop Off if you're travelling up from the country en route to somewhere beyond Dublin. Food nothing to write home about in my opinion but some people may like it.

Wonderful from start to finish, every time in Dublin we go here, the food here is fabulous, my son had the child's portion of lasagna and he was licking the plate after it, service is impeccable, and the personal touch the staff has is unique. Well done and we most certainly will be back !

Have not been here for a number of years... and it looks like the menu has not changed much in a number of years. It was quite early on a Saturday evening when we arrived so we did not have to queue. I chose the chicken maryland dish ... The food was bland and tasteless. The strawberry meringue for dessert... More

Was brought here recently by a family friend. The menu is varied, but i felt limited in healthy options available. Our meal was tasty, and there was no issue in taking home our leftovers (portions are very generous!). Our waitress was extremely friendly and helpful, and service was attentive throughout. Worth a visit if you are passing, but i wouldn't... More

Had two visits last week to Joels for dinner. Both nights were very enjoyable due to the great welcome from staff and the excellent tasty food. Super menu with something for everyone. Excellent gluten free choices. Great selection of cocktails. Highly recommended

Joel's offers fabulous value for money. Good portions and tasty food. The Asia Choices were very good, and the cocktails added to a great evening. They are also one of the very few restaurants to have a full gluten free menu, big tick from me. Special mention to our waitress Antoinette, very friendly and an asset to this super restaurant....
