My husband and I were staying at a hotel down the street from the Chophouse. We had walked over looking for a place for dinner. The choices were a pizza restaurant, a pub which didn't actually serve food, or the chophouse. We walked into the chophouse which had a quiet, pleasant atmosphere. We were seated at a window overlooking the... More

On the higher scale for price, it's all worth it when the plates come... Extremely friendly service, very knowledgeable waiter (presented the raw piece of meat to the couples sitting around us to explain what was what), massive meat portions, fantastic meat quality prepared as requested (if asked to be rare it will be rare!). We couldn't fit a dessert... More

We go to the chophouse quite often and we never had any complaint about the restaurant. It is, indeed, a bit pricey (equivalent to the surrounding restaurants and other steak houses) but the food is always very good and right on spot as we order it. Joe and his team are always nice to us, the staff is very helpfull,... More

This restaurant was the perfect ending to our day in Dublin. We stopped on our walk back from central Dublin to our B&B (Ariel House). I say perfect because the atmosphere, food, and service were all excellent... and the price. We went with 2-course special for €25 and it was delicious. Ellen (?) waited on us and provided tips for... More

Friendly welcome, comfortable surroundings, good table and helpful Canadian waitress. We both went for the fillet steak, excellent and cokes to perfection for both our tastes. The waitress recommended the wine which was lively and all in all seemed good value.

We stopped in here by chance and were delighted! Our waitress was kind, accommodating and attentive. We went for the special sirloin dinner with some extra sides for more tasting. It was cooked to perfection - tender and flavorful - it did not disappoint. But honestly, my favorite part of the meal was the broccoli. I don't know what they... More

I have been a number of times for dinner here and always come away satisfied and praising this place. Yesterday we had a late lunch and again the quality of food and service is the best. It's such a pleasure to return to a place you remember as being on a high level and to find it hasn't gone down... More

Have been there many times on business. I could recommend all dishes in this restaurant.... with special attention to the fish table as a starter and the surf n turf.

This place is simply fantastic, the food the atmosphere. Steak is best I've ever had, service is top notch!

Eating here really makes you feel like a local. The waitstaff is extremely friendly and welcoming. This is away from the tourist scene which is nice. The lamb was out of this world. If we ever go back we are doing the meat for 2. I even got a free pint when they poured too many for another table!

Thank Kyle M
