    A nice spot, not too expensive for the city centre. Not the place to come for a quiet meal, it was full of stag parties when we got there, super loud inside. Duck wings are amazing! Creme brulee extremely disappointing. Not exactly sure what way the kitchen works - our table was just clean from starters when our steaks immediately arrived - would worry me that mains are cooked before starters are called away.

    We had a lovely meal here for my brother’s 21st birthday. The staff were so attentive, and the food was delicious. We also had some fab cocktails to finish the meal. We went on a Friday night and it was a bit empty, but other than that we thoroughly enjoyed our meal and would definitely recommend!

    Fabulous experience at the beef and lobster. All the food was beautifully presented. Staff were wonderful and attentive. We opted for the surf and turf main course, amazing, the lobster was cooked perfectly. The steaks were very tasty. Calamari for starter were cooked perfectly and the sauce served with it complimented perfectly. We will be back.

    Medium steak was blue. Lobster claw was over cooked, but the lobster body was sushi. Noise levels were astronomical. We were in and out within 40 minutes. Most likely would never go back here except for maybe a margarita.

    The place is good and comfortable to dine in. They were busy when we went there but everything seems to be tidy and clean. However, the food we received was overcooked but they were very apologetic and happy to cook us a new one. We, in the end, got the 10oz ribeye (originally we ordered the cowboy ribeye). The food in general was OK and unfortunately the flavour isn't memorable. We expected more considering the price. Though, we appreciate the front staff as they were very nice.

    Food was poor for the price, especially since it was described as the "Ultimate Beef and Lobster experience ". Staff were pleasant but clueless. Never available when you needed something and clumsy. I get that staffing is an issue instead industry right now. Further evidence here.

    As the name of the restaurant goes, Beef and Lobster are popular on the menu. There are other options too, just the right mix. Service was excellent, music was easy o the ear and not too loud. Would definitely recommend this place and I will be back!

    We booked the restaurant in advance of our stay in Galway as we were not sure whether or not we would get a table for 6 or us. We found this online and because of the extensive menu of mainly Steak we went for it. When we got there we were given a different and very limited one page menu (obviously shortened for Covid reasons) which is not a problem but we should have know this in advance as we would not have booked it. We have 3 steak loving men in the family. The Mac & Cheese is exceptional as was the Burger but the other 4 members of the party did not enjoy the main course. Also the 2 staff were not as attentive as you would like but they were run off their feet and could have done with some back up but they were very friendly and courteous, management let them down here. All in all we were very underwhelmed and dropped €230!!! It certainly did not feel like what you would expect for that money. I would struggle to justify paying half of it but I guess thats city centre prices???? Can do alot better

    Food was very tasty. Duck wings are my favorite. Burgers are very good too but after reopening, there are no chips with burgers (back in March burgers were with salad and chips, all includeded in price) and now €15 for just a burger is too expensive.

    For quite an expensive place, they seemed to be trying to whoosh us out from the moment we sat down. We were asked for our drinks order 4 times in the space of 5 minutes, although we had already ordered. This continued through the meal and was intrusive enough that I asked the waiters to leave us alone for 20 minutes. Food was average at best.
