The staff here were very friendly and very helpful. However the food on the other hand was very disappointing. We ended up leaving half our food behind. Very disappointing from a venue we had higher expectations for.

Whilst this was a pleasant dinner experience, it was far from perfect. The menu was slightly boring with mostly steak & Mexican themed dishes. The steak was generous & cooked rare to my liking, however the sides were bland & sauce just average. My partner ordered a fajita main and was very disappointed. Again it was presented nicely and was... More

Really enjoyed our meal at ripleys in kilkenny. The service was lovely and very friendly and the paintings around the room were a great focal point. The food was great and we were asked several times if we were okay for everything. Price was reasonable and the general atmosphere was relaxed and warm.

We visited rip keys last Thursday night. It was very quiet and had no ambience. The deep fried Brie I had to start was still solid in the middle and my burger was tasteless. My husbands steak was not cooked as requested and his chips seemed to be reheated. Prices were reasonable and service was good.

Ripley's Steakhouse is on the Butterslip, one of the tiny medieval alleyways that link Kilkenny's streets. It was recommended to us by several people, and lived up to its reputation for quality. The restaurant has a cosy atmosphere, the staff are plentiful and enthusiastic. There were fifteen of us, gathered for a hastily-arranged pre-Christmas lunch. The menu was not over-complicated,...

A really nice restaurant located in the butterslip. This restaurant has a good menu - there is something good there for everyone! Staff are very friendly and welcoming. I ordered fishcakes and the classic burger, and the boyfriend ordered nachos and the double beef burger. I can honestly say that this was the nicest fishcake I have ever had, the... More
