Food exquisite! We got a taste of the purist cheeseburger with bacon, tacos and halumi burger and possibly half of the starters!! Everything was top notch! Bacon amazingly crispy (at last one restaurant getting the bacon right!! ) 😁 burgers succulent and scrumptious including the halumi burger, which was outstanding! Tacos full to the brin and full of flavour! And last but not least, the staff some of the loveliest people there are! So see you soon Bison Bar!

Server was lovely (small dark haired girl). Food wasn't great, we got served a stone cold lasagne. The tater tots were rock solid, the cheesy cauliflower was far too spicy, it didn't mention once on the menu it would be spicy and it was actually inedible in the end. The Panko roll was a real let down, I was expecting a strip of actual meat and not blended mush. Cocktails were very nice. It was a birthday outing and felt like a bit of a let down and we would not return, perhaps it was just bad luck on the day.

In terms of the window seats we do find that when people like to sit there they do like to sit and watch the world go by it is part of the appeal of those tables. In terms of the food I'm so sorry to hear that you had a bad experience, if I could get you to give me an email at fiona@bisonbar.ie then that would be fantastic. Thanks, Fiona

Food was bland and lacking in imagination, the cocktails were overly sweet. I had eaten here before with much better experience, the menu seems to have changed in last few months.

Only downfall was the ribs. I'd expect to be fall of the bone but they weren't and very little meat on them. The rest was fantastic!

Had the Combo platter of ribs and brisket, which were perfectly cooked/smoked, along with some proper old school fries. Great service from a lovely lady whose name I didn't get I'm afraid. Friends hadn't been there before but were delighted I had brought them to the BBQ mecca that is Bison Bar. PS - Lagunitas IPA was nice too :)

Things like burgers can take a bit longer to make as they are cooked fresh compared to our BBQ meats as they have already been cooked low and slow in our smoker. Please always feel free to say if you are not happy with anything we are always more than happy to replace anything that you aren't happy with. Thanks, Fiona
