Matt The Thresher Seafood Bar and Grill restaurant
31/31 Lower Pembroke Street, City Centre South
A sister restaurant to the award winning Birdhill original, Matt the Thresher is a family business. Welcoming fires, polished wood floors, a long marble bar and fresh shellfish piled high on crushed ice create an ambiance perfect for its Georgian surrounds.
With 120 covers total Matt the Thresher caters for groups large and small. There is a range of seating. Take a stool at the bar, or have a coffee in a leather armchair by the fire.
At the rear of the bar, a feature art deco glass roof pours light onto a raised mezzanine level and grand piano, for live music on Thursday, Friday and Saturday evenings. Under the mezzanine a cosy book-lined nook is perfect for whiling away a few quiet hours.

A great experience, staff are excellent

A pleaseant experience on a Monday night for a meal with work colleagues.Atmosphere was missing perhaps due to it being a monday night.Food was of a high standard, service was very friendly if perhaps slow considering the number of waiting staff and the lack of diners.Reasonably priced menu available.

I have been to Matt the Thresher twice now and both times the food has been excellent. They do have a tendancy to sell out of specials or some of the items on the menu (I think I'm just unlucky with my choices!) But at least you know that its all fresh! I woudl definitely recommend and will be going back!

Met some friends after work recently and this is place is just great. Warm and cosy with a lovely hum of conversation which makes for a very pleasant experience. Food is terrific, freshest of fish and seafood beautifully presented. Will definitely go back for another visit.

"We popped in here after a day of shopping, and were greeted by a very friendly waitress. We had read the menu and decided before the waitress arrived, but before she would take our order she gave us the specials, just to make sure we had all the information for our orders! Have to say the fish burger I had was devine, and my mothers fish and chips were gorgeous. I would def recommend this place to anyone. We got talking to an American tourist while we were there and he said the same, he comes to ireland a few times a year and comes to this place every time he is in Dublin. If you like fish you will love this place, but it also has a bit of everything else, steak, burgers etc, I cant wait for our next visit"

Went for lunch here with a group of 12. Excellent food and service. The establishment itself is classy, I will definitely visit again.

I brought a group of tourists here for dinner. Matt the Thresher was one of the highlights of their trip: the food was delicious, each of the 14 enjoyed their meal, the diverse needs of the group were very well catered for, the staff were friendly and attentive. The wine list is extensive, and they have lots of nice wines by the glass: we had a Shiraz and a Pinot Grigio, both were very well received. They also have a full bar. I had hake, which was perfectly cooked, accompanied by lovely boiled potatoes, but no vegetables. For dessert, an apple crumble was totally delicious, with a scoop of vanilla ice cream on top. The premises is distinctive, and there was a great atmosphere, really buzzing. Look forward to going back again soon!
