The Food was very disappointing. I had been to the restaurant before when it was located on Dame Street and I had expected it to meet those standards, but it was no where near as good.

Music seemed to be playing from a laptop behind the bar, but had some issues which seemed to one of the distractions preventing the staff from serving.

Service was very very slow, and i had to stand up four times during the meal to look for some service but the food did arrive very quickly once ordered. I would assume it did not take too many seconds to be heated up in the microwave.

Really really poor, would not recommended a visit to this place for anyone.

It was the ideal place for New Years Eve - we booked a table for 7pm and it was there waiting. Staff were pleasant and efficient even though it was holiday time. Music was probably a little too loud for us - but it was NYE - so no complaints. And, at least it was decent music :)

great local place steps away from O’Connell street. Food was excellant - smoked bbq : pork, beef, chicken, ribs with a great selection of sides. Also they had a delicious salad with your choice of protein.

Had a lovely meal before going on to the Abbey. Food was American bbq style but really tasty with good portions. Three generations of women from 19 to 76 years old and we all enjoyed it. Staff very friendly and helpful.

Our welcome at The Wiley Fox wasn't the greatest with before even being seated or asked for drinks that the table was needed back in 2 hours. Nacho starter was tasty and generous, however the beef brisket I had for main was a touch dry. Food was reasonably priced though. Not the greatest or the worst BBQ food I've had.

Good food and service. The wings were delicious. Very casual setting. We were sitting on couches and armchairs with a low table which wasn’t ideal for eating but other than that no complaints!

Cosy pub with a cool atmosphere and good food. My only issue was with the music, which was too loud to allow for conversation.

Lovely waitress serving us, who made our evening really nice. Lovely food - very good pub grub for a reasonable price. The loos were pretty unpleasant in terms of cleanliness and we did find the music too loud in the restaurant area. Overall good though!

Super service on a Saturday night. Eight of us met for food and drinks - food was gorgeous and the lady who served us was excellent, very attentive and friendly. Music a bit loud at times but we were seated right under a speaker, however the staff kindly turned it down a bit when we asked!
