“Good menu choices for kids and adults”
Reviewed July 22, 2013

We were traveling with teens and ran into trouble finding restaurants that had both authentic Irish food AND food that our kids would like. The Front Door easily covered both serving pasta, burgers and chicken fingers (goujons) for the kids and Guinness stew, fish N chips, and Shepard's Pie for the adults. It was a large restaurant so we didn't wait that long for a table and the service was fast and friendly.

“Average except for the service”
Reviewed July 21, 2013 via mobile

Pub food with nothing great except for the shepherd pie. Decent prices. Huge interior. Went back at night for beers but it was super crowded and too hot to stay. Service staff were incredibly friendly and were the only reason why we came back for the night visit.

Dear Matthew,
Thank you for taking the time to review us. We value our customer feedback greatly and use it constructively.
I am sorry to hear you did not find our menu selection entirely to your satisfaction. We strive to provide a variety of top quality pub favourites and daily specials and pride ourselves on our quality service.We are happy to read that our staff created such a good impression to draw you back that evening.
We are also a late bar and evening venue and summer season especially with the wonderful weather we had can be very busy.
I hope you may return again and be tempted by another dish on our menu or one of our daily specials.
Thank you again and if there are any particular dishes or suggestions you may have for our menu we would appreciate additional feedback email jsyne@frontdoorpub.com

“Nice pub good grub”
Reviewed July 16, 2013

While on tour we stopped in Galway, in the main pedestrian shopping area we found the Front Door Pub. Very friendly staff and the food was very good oddly enough I craved a hamburger and to my surprise it was very good. My wife had fish and chips which also were very good but we never found bad fish and chips. We only had lunch but it looked like it would a fun nightspot

“Good spot”
Reviewed July 15, 2013 via mobile

Decided to go here for a change.. Menu is reasonably priced, good options, food was grand, nothing to write home about. Service was very good, very nice staff.
