“A very nice surprise!!!!”
Reviewed June 13, 2014

We stopped in Lahinch on our was to the Cliffs of Moher because we were STARVING and had to have something to eat. We did not really have a high expectation from a fast-food looking restaurant on a beach, but WOW we were pleasantly surprised. The Fish N Chips portion was HUGE and seemed to be cooked to order. It was a bit greasy, but delicious. Nice espresso and homemade tasting chocolate chip cookie. We sat outside on the patio enjoying the sunny day. They view of the water was pretty nice too.

“Wake me up when the food arrives.”
Reviewed June 8, 2014

Possibly the slowest service I've found. Waiting for my sandwich to arrive. Zzzzzzzzzzzz.
The thing I really don't understand is that the sandwiches are all pre-made so why the 30 minute wait?

“Excellent Food, Crappy Service”
Reviewed June 4, 2014

The food in Randaddy's is excellent. It is inventive and very tasty. It's a pity the restaurant layout and building isn't better as the food is a cut-above other local eateries with innovative ideas and large portions.
Randy is a pleasant character as is the tall blonde waitress. There is however one other waitress who is abrupt and ignorant! She is very rude and doesn't belong in the service industry. She doesn't seem to care about her patrons.
However, don't let her put you off the great food.

“Fab restaurant”
Reviewed May 27, 2014

A group of 20 of us ate at Randaddys and thoroughly enjoyed our meal! We were given a private section of the restaurant which was lovely. The meal was really good value and it was a lovely meal from start to finish. The staff also couldn't have been more helpful and friendly. The setting of this restaurant is lovely by the beach. I'll definitely be returning to Randaddy's on other trips to Lahinch.

“Always a pleasure!”
Reviewed May 23, 2014

We always end up in Randaddy's every time we are in Lahinch. The food is always a great and you always seem to get those extra flavours that a menu just can't explain to you. This time around we had the ribs and Beer Battered fish. It delicious and no doubt we'll be back again. Look forward to the next time.
