Stopped for some food in the Courtyard Bar and Grill while in the McDonagh Junction Shopping centre in Kilkenny in August. The restaurant was very nice inside, contemporary design and looked very clean. Option to eat outside also – the shopping centre had the courtyard closed over which I though was cool. Menu options were good from the open sandwiches... More

Lovely setting, but the food is not good here. The lasagne was lukewarm and the potato wedges were oily and cold. Could not get manager to complain, he was busy doing nothing. Won't return and yes I paid for it , will think with my purse .

We spent a wonderful afternoon in The Courtyard Grill. Following a spot of shopping in McDonagh Junction Shopping Centre, we retreated to The Courtyard Grill and were pleasantly surprised. The menu, the setting and the service were wonderful. But best of all- our kids were able to play while we finished and enjoyed our lunch.

Excellent food at a reasonable price. Beautiful roofed courtyard location where you can dine alfresco no matter what the weather is like. Family friendly too with play facilities for young children

Stopped here before heading home after a midweek break not expecting much other than food court fare. The Bar and Grill was the most attractive premises in the food court so we headed in. Lovely waitress welcomed us in as soon as we stepped in. We had the lunch special Leek soup and Lamb Burger with salad and shoestring chips.... More

Well worth a visit. Good food made to order. I love Blu Steak and they get it just right. Warm on the inside but just done on the outside. The food overall is to a very high standard and the staff are very professional. Worth a visit for lunch.

Worst food i have had out in a long time. Had the fish ( bad choice it was like eating soggy rubber ) This was pre cooked & reheated in a microwave. Definitely won't be back. Manager also very rude when paying good money for slop. Thank goodness we didn't complain because it looked like he wouldn't of cared in... More
