“Noes was average Joes”

Edible, just not much more to be said. Everything was just passable, staff were friendly, place was ok bit cold, food was about ok. Next time will drive on I think!

“Huge portions and brilliant tobacco onions. Great value for two but too much food for one!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 19, 2012 via mobile

Bit if an Oasis on the road to Derry from Belfast. Ignore the KFC across the road and try this. Huge portions - chicken, ribs, steaks - nice TGI Friday type interior.

“Average Joes”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 24, 2012 via mobile

Starters were good, homemade and tasty. Mains were ok, fish goujons were fresh cod which was good, lasagne not so good, very dry and quite tasteless. Staff friendly and efficient. We stopped in enroute from Belfast to Derry so was a flying visit. Good value 2 courses for £10.95

“Big Party!”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 14, 2012

We ate here 13/10/2012 - we were a large party, who had pre-ordered, the restaurant was busy. Staff very friendly, it would have been useful to spend some time going round and identifying main course for each diner and serving groups of 4-6 at a time this would have prevented staff standing at end of long tables and shouting the orders and then when the food wasn't claimed we were calling the orders up and down the table - some people had main course before sides and vice versa. Starter was good, steak was really good. my portion of chips was small - while some people got big bowls of chips - probably for more than one person but no-one really knew.

“Great food, Poor Service....”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 1, 2012

We had previously eaten twice in the Moes grill in Antrim and found the food to be lovely but the service appalling both times, having to wait for ages to be served and people arriving after we had been seated and their orders being taken before us, so we decided never to revisit there.

We called into Moe's grill in Magherafelt today to see if they were any different. The waitress was very disinterested showing us to our seats, we asked for a minute before ordering drinks and she never came back again. We waited about 20 minutes before a second waitress who was a little more friendly arrived and took our order. The food was delicious and well presented, and good sized portions, which is a credit to the chef's. the decor hasn't really changed from the last owners, all that is different is the American memorabilia has gone.

The staff clearly could do with a little bit more of customer service training which would make this restaurant worth returning too. We did mention it to the person on the till but she just stood with her mouth opened clearly not knowing what to do.

The restaurant was not very busy so service should have been much better, we may return in the future but the lack of customer service would definately put us off.

If you do decide to visit, the food is delicious but be prepared to wait on it.
