“nice touch”
Reviewed October 29, 2012

Visited Ballygiblin's on Friday night once again. The waitress was terrific. Walked and she remembered our drinks(gingerale with lime, Barking Squirrel beer) Then went on to remember our preferred orders. What a wonderful personal touch!!! Sure made this a pleasurable dining experience. As usual the food was top notch.

“Excellent Restaurant”
Reviewed October 12, 2012

My husband and I have eaten at Ballygiblins about 3-4 times a year since they have opened. For the most part we have always enjoyed the restaurant. Maybe a couple times we were not too impressed...but not enough to stay away :) We ate there about 3 weeks ago and I have to say it was one of the best meals we have ever had. The food was way above average, and the service was excellent. With food and service like that...we would be more inclinded to return every month!
The only minor negative i would say...the atmosphere, its just plain dark in there...I know they cant help it its the way the bldg is, and certainly with food and service above average...so what if its a little on the dark side :)

“Nice place, but really echoes”
Reviewed October 4, 2012

Food is very good, nice place.. But my husband I find it very loud.
Not really nice for a quiet evening out.

“My Fav”
Reviewed September 11, 2012 via Local Picks

This is my go to place in town. The food is great, the servers friendly, the atmosphere changes depending on where you sit. Bright and open in the front, a little darker and comfy in the back.
