It’s all in the name…we do two things, beef and lobster; but we do them right! It’s about the best dry aged Irish beef and the best grilled Irish lobsters with great beer, wine and cocktails surrounded by good people and good energy. All this cooked by one of Ireland’s best chefs with a price tag that delivers real value for your hard-earned cash. What’s not to like?!

With fewer distractions we concentrate our efforts on training amazing staff and sourcing the best of Irish beef and lobster, all grilled to perfection over charcoal. Tuck in, dive in, we reckon you’re going to love it.

We had a great evening....excellent, friendly service and we were lucky to have a better than usual table....food was good but the plates were cold so it got cold before we finished. In retrospect the value for money was average....but the staff were outstanding and the other diners all looked to be having a great time.

Visited Beef & Lobster recently with 4 clients and we couldn't fault it. The food was out of this world with very generous portions. The service was exceptional. I highly recommend this restaurant.

Well over-priced and the food was average at best. Certainly not worth the money. Service was good as you’d expect but everyone sitting too close together and so loud it was hard to hear each other.

Overall, it was a nice time. Food was not so good especially the desserts. The food came out so late, sweet potato fries was too salty and generally below average. Staff were very nice, helpful and welcoming. Ambience was zero, too rowdy.

Hi,

I booked my dinner through Open Table, told them that when I came in for my booking, they told me they couldn’t open Open Table but I fulfilled my booking yet was still charged a no show
Charge of €20 and can’t make contact with Open Table or the restaurant about being double charged.

Very annoyed customer.

Service was very good the staff were really attentive and friendly. However the food had a lot of coriander and personally I hate coriander and it wasn’t listed on the menu so it made the food quite inedible for both myself and my friend. I had the crayfish salad which was also dry and needed some sauce or flavouring. My friend had the prawns, mussels and clams in the tomato sauce which also seemed to have a lot of coriander which ultimately just ruined both our meals. Ambiance was good but I wouldn’t return.

Dinner for 2 with wife on Friday night; pre-booked with COVID restrictions and had superb meal - starter of calamari excellent, had steak and lobster - steak was probably best had in Ireland - fantastic cut of beef perfectly cooked - and service excellent. Desert for her key lime pie and didn't even get a taste it was that good. Would definitely recommned!

Great steak! Not quite how I wanted it cooked, but it was still a great steak. Staff are great, I like a place that serves you and lets you be.. a quick check that things are ok and that’s it. To be honest, I ended up booking a table here as the place I usually book wasn’t available, however I would happily return to Beef & Lobster again.
