Description: Dublin's original steakhouse with the experience and knowledge of over 25 years of serving the perfect steak. We change our menus each season to reflect the best that Irish produce has to offer and to ensure the highest quality of local fresh seafood. We offer an informed wine list to meet all budgets and an extensive selection of cocktails and spirits. We are also open for weekday for lunch serving health and tasty dishes at very reasonable prices. The way in which we guarantee the highest quality in beef in both texture and flavour is by choosing Irish beef and the highest grade of traditional breeds of cattle. At F.X.BUCKLEY our prime cuts are hung on the bone at 4°C and at 80% humidity for a minimum of 28 days. Storing meat for several weeks where it can loose up to 16% of it's weight involves considerable expertise so all F.X.BUCKLEY butchers are specifically trained for the process. The benefit for our patrons is to experience the concentration and saturation of natural meat flavours and superior tenderness. Hence why you will hear experts use terms such as "buttery and rich", and "earthy and nutty" to describe our dry-aged beef.
Dublin, Ireland.

“This is the the place for a great steak!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 11, 2013 via mobile

Yes - we love steak and if you do too, then you won't be disappointed with this restaurant! The waiting staff are very friendly and professional. We shared bread & dips for starters and it was very nice. My husband ordered the 16oz and I ordered the special Dexter Beef 10oz steak. They came as ordered - "medium" and "well-medium", served with chips (like home cooked chips) and onion rings. Lovely! I would have no hesitation in recommending this restaurant for a great steak.

Went here on the strength of trip advisor reviews and it was fab. If you like steak then there is little to beat this restaurant. Service was superb and great value for money.

“Nice steak not the best”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 16, 2013 via mobile

Had dinner here with my husband. Excellent and attentive service. I had the fillet steak with chips and salad. The steak was delicious, chips average, salad wasn't very fresh. Husband had the sirloin with chips and salad. Unfortunately he asked for medium rare and got a medium steak which he didn't enjoy very much. Shared the cheeseboard which was good but the grapes weren't very fresh either. The service made up for what was lacking in the food. I think there are better steakhouses in Dublin that would serve nicer sides along with a good steak so I wouldnt hurry back.

“Amazing steaks”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 15, 2013 via mobile

We had asked in a few bars and all recomended fxb's so we went to try it out . The place was mobbed but the staff moved tables around to fit us in.

The steaks where fantastic , best I've had in a while and the various sides where also excellent. Service was great and I would certainly go back. Not cheap but worth the money
