Description: Hogs & Heifers is a rustically refined steakhouse concept born out of the meat packers district in New York, priding itself on locally sourced quality dry aged cuts of meat up to 30oz, sharing meat planks and suckling hog on a spit. All to be enjoyed with our huge selection of Craft beers from Ireland and around the world. A large wooden island bar nestled under a corrugated iron roof and open plan kitchen set the scene for this cleverly crafted industrial meat lovers paradise. The vibe is edgy and cool - with late licence and live rock music we re-create the theatre of a timeless Coyote Ugly style including our stunning waitresses dancing on the bar counter !! We look forward to sharing this unique experience with you very soon......

Reviewed August 31, 2014

It was OK. the table needed cleaning and even after it was cleaned, it still needed cleaning! Food was OK but the service was indifferent

“Loved it”
Reviewed August 29, 2014 via mobile

I've been here twice now one with family and the second time with a large group of is from work. The pulled pork is melt in the mouth and the sides different and tasty. The obit thing I would say is the red lighting that seemed to be near our table. not inviting. When I went with work we had platters and they went down well.

“Great food and great value”
Reviewed August 28, 2014

Quite possibly the best Caesar salad that I have ever tasted. Overall the food is excellent quality and good value. The food has interesting flavours, a welcome change. Excellent service and a nice atmosphere.

“Not for me or my friends!!”
Reviewed August 26, 2014

A group of us went here on Thursday night for something to eat and a few drinks. it was about 7.30pm when we arrived and there was no atmosphere in the place what so ever. we were shown to our table , About 2 minutes later the waitress was back looking to see were we ready to order. We told her we needed a little more time as we'd only just sat down. We were then asked if we wanted to order drinks. Myself and one of the girls ordered a bottle of white wine which was brought to the table and just left there, Nobody opened and poured, thankfully it was a screw top so we were able to open it ourselves!! it was not very cold either.

We ordered the food and unfortunately we were not impressed with this either! The steak which costs €28 was nothing to write home about, the chicken would be better described as a budgie, the pulled pork had some sort of sauce going through it so the sauce was all you could taste. There is no option of baked potatoes or side salads as an alternative to the little basket of greasy fries that came with everything! The dessert menu had no imagination, i think there were four desserts on the menu, not even an apple pie!

We had heard that this place was rocking and the food was fabulous, unfortunately for us we had the opposite experience. The food was overpriced with no imagination and there was no atmosphere in the place at all. We were there til 10.30 or later and the atmosphere had not picked up from when we had arrived!

I would not return here and i would not recommend it to anyone either!
