I went to the courtyard bar and grill with my husband and two kids and I found the place to be really friendly and welcoming to our boisterous children. The decor in the restaurant and the art is a pleasant addition as most restaurants are quite bland in that respect. I had the Caesar salad and it was fab not... More

Based in McDonough junction it really has potential if maybe they got rid of all staff and chefs there! Food was shockingly bad, greasy and tasteless, out of 6 of us dining not one of us enjoyed our meal. Staff too busy chatting to take orders or even clear table. Coffee arrives 20 mins after desert and definitely was not... More

I went to do a spot of shopping in McDonagh Junction and decided to pop into the Courtyard Bar and Grill for a quick breakfast that was so enjoyable that myself and my friend ordered the full Irish, then stayed for desert and coffee. The setting was peaceful & personal. The food was outstanding, the services was exceptional. Even with... More

I was busy all day and just popped into The Courtyard Bar and Grill for a bit of lunch. I had the most amazing pork lunch special with creamed potatoes and roasted vegetables and it was beautiful. The pork was cooked to perfection and was nice and juicy. I was so full, I couldn't even had deserts, but I seen... More

Went here for a spot of light lunch with my husband and we both ordered the roast chicken salad with sundried tomato and roasted peppers. We sat outside and every thing was fine until I was three quarters way through my salad and I was just about to help myself to another bite of sundried tomato when I saw a... More

Really bad food. Horrible taste! Never again! The chips were all soaked up with oil. Lasagne was bad, wedges fries were disgusting!

Looks can be deceiving. It was one of those Sunday's where you just want to relax with a cake and coffee. However this was not the case. We were seated by a very abrupt gentleman who nearly hit me in the head with the menu. We were then ignored for 15 to 20 minutes before someone came to take our... More

Me and my family have been to the courtyard plenty of times and the last two times the service has been unbelievably bad. We visited in April and there were no other customers in the seating area outside yet not one of the waitresses came out to serve us. My husband then went inside to get menus and we waited... More
