I've been here twice, once with family and once with a group f friends. The staff were helpful and the food was amazing - much better than I had expected seeing as it in situated in a shopping centre!
Would definitely go back if I was in the area.
Also it''s a really child friendly place with a play space for the kids!

We have visited this so called restaurant for a quick lunch and left really disappointed.
The place was really cold to begin with - you could almost feel a breeze and want to put a jacket on - not something you'd expect from an indoor place.
The waiting staff was terrible - we had to wait for about 20 minutes just to order, and the place was empty, so not like they were running around waiting other tables.
BBQ spare ribs were awful - dry and way overdone, chicken quesadilla looked like something you'd from the supermarket freezer. Chicken wings were too salty, although cooked well, but the sauce was too sour. Coke tasted diluted and was light brown in color. At the end of the meal I was quite happy that neither of us went for something more fancy - if they manage so ruin such simple dishes I am terrified to think what they would do to a proper dish.
To sum it up - in the same shopping center there are much better places to eat and with a much better value for your money too!
I will avoid this place in the future and would recommend everyone else to do the same.

P.S. Ironically, they are proudly displaying the sticker on the front door which says something along "recommended by tripadvisor.ie" - probably forgot to add the line - "to be avoided"

I've been so Spur a few times and I've always been happy with my meal, and this visit was no exception.

The menu is pretty good, a lot of choice if you don't want steak - although vegetarians may struggle.

Our service was excellent, couldn't fault it at all, and we were well-attended the whole night.

The food was nice, not gourmet but satisfying and our steaks were done exactly as we asked. The portions were also pretty generous.

The place was pretty busy, so there was a good buzz, but be aware there is also a kids' play area at the rear of the restaurant, so there can be a bit of noise from there.

Overall I was happy. It's not a place to go out of your way to visit, but if you're hungry and in the area it's worth a look.

Went here last week for a quick bite during a shopping trip trip and was very disappointed.I used to like this place when it first opened but its gone downhill since then.The food was pretty much tasteless and looked slapped together and more disturbingly the cutlery was filthy so we had to wipe them first with wipes.I WOULD NEVER GO BACK
