“this was a good evening”
Reviewed August 14, 2013

really enjoyed this, very well managed, great atmos, and the food/drink choice was first rate. I did just pick up on one small thing which I fed back to my server when she asked (who was the manager it turned out). She took it on board with good nature, and bought me a drink just before I left which was a nice touch, and appreciated.

Will defo go back!

“Western Restaurant Galway”
Reviewed June 22, 2013

Excellent food at a very low price. The breakfast deal for residents is very good. There were the usual Irish choices and the food was well presented.

“Bargain”
Reviewed May 28, 2013

We had groupon deal for here for two 10oz sirloin steaks plus extras. We didn't have a starter & straight to the mains it was great, cooked to perfection [ours was medium what you say but each to their own] & not many place so far to my experence can cook a 10oz properly. Sorry to them, as we didn't have derserts so no money changed hands as I was running off to see Leinster win the Amlin cup, but on our next visit to Galway we will be calling into enjoy a meal as the prices are good & the food great. Thanks.

“Friendly service, average food, little atmosphere”
Reviewed May 20, 2013

We had an evening meal at westerns. The service was very prompt and friendly and the menu was decent. However, the food was pretty average, seemed as though our mains had sat under a warmer for a while before coming out! The portions were v large though. Atmosphere was rather lacking there though, to be fair it was mid week and very quiet when we went, so could be different story another night of the week.

“Good service, average food”
Reviewed May 19, 2013

Visited the Western restaurant after purchasing a groupon voucher recently and was disappointed with the food we were served.

I got the duck which was poorly presented, however, tasted nicer than it looked. My girlfriend got the steak and requested it cooked medium, however when it arrived it was very well done and tough. She sent it back, and received another steak, well done again! The waiting staff were very helpful but the food was underwhelming.
