I went here for my PhD graduation dinner. There were 15 of us for dinner that various food tastes and allergies.The set menu for €30 catered for everyone. On arrival, we realised that my nana, who is 85, wouldn't be able to climb the stairs to the restaurant. When I explained this to the wait staff, they kindly moved our booking downstairs to the bar. Considering there were 15 of us, that was a lot more work for them, but they were very happy to oblige. The food was delicious and the service was fantastic. Highly recommend this restaurant, especially to groups with various food tastes.

Had lunch special today the 3rd April in mcswiggans. It was cod potatoe and veg. Very tasty and good. However I was looking for the mash potatoe so requested more and I said to bar person who was a bit taken back I thought that I presumed I would not have to pay for the extra mash. The lunch came to 11.25. I was charged 2.00 for the extra mash potato. I was not impressed at all and told barman I would never be back. I was a frequent customer for years.

Availed of the early bird which has two courses for €20. Nice selection on the menu, something for everyone. The food was great, could not fault it and our argentinian malbec helped wash it down well. The atmosphere was fine, service was efficient and great value for money. The only thing I would fault is all the stairs! I will return!

Great choice on the menu - something for everyone. Good hearty portions and top quality food at fair prices. Service was friendly and professional and the surroundings pleasant. What more do you want?!

I agree with the previous comments, lived in Galway for three years and this restaurant was my favourite treat! However, from visits made back there within the last two years the service has changed significantly, young students waiters with a lack of understanding on proper service are now the norm. The food portions have decreased and the food is not hot enough to serve in my opinion, how hard is it to ensure that food is placed on a hot plate??? it is such a shame to see this restaurant failing. After my last visit to this restaurant today i can honestly say that i will not be returning. Disappointing visit.

it used be my familys favourite but the service has just went downhill and while other places are decreasing there prices, these are always increasing an the portions seem to get smaller every time. i do like the food as i ordered the duck when i was there this time and it was really gud, just very plain on its own. my mum is a regurlar in here 2 and finds the same problems.

This used to be my favourite restaurant but i think the service has really went downhill, I think because this hotel is quiet popular they dont feel the need to value customers. I have decided not to dine here anymore because of this, We would have used this restaurant for many years for every birthday, anniversary and special occasion but the lack of service and respect to customers has made me stop eating here. The food is quiet nice but again quiet expensive for what you are getting, when you order the steak all you get is the steak and then you have to add on any veg or potato side which can really bring up the price, this is with all main courses. The Atmosphere is quiet busy but sometimes too busy in the sense the service can be really slow.

We visited this resturant on reccomedation of the cab driver from our hotel - He was soooooooooooo right!! the resturant was fairly busy but even so our waiter was lovely & very attentive. the food arrived promptly & was extreemly well presented. I had Monkfish in garlic cream sauce to start (WOW!!!) then Baked Cod (Yummmmmm) for main course & then ice cream. My only complaint was that I was so full I got stomach pains - but the food was too nice to leave! I would reccomend this resturant to anyone who likes good food - just make sure you're really hungry!!!

We were recommended to visit McSwiggans while on a recent trip to Galway, on the basis that it was able to do what so many other places fail at-combining a great pub and a great restaurant. We had booked a week or so in advance, but were still taken to a table for 4, which I find can sometimes be somewhat lazy service-especially as all four settings were still there. I had pate for starters, which was a great flavour and consistency, however, the toast served was not very fresh-tasting. My partner had smoked salmon which was plentiful and of exceptional quality. For main course, I opted for duck, while my partner had monkfish. We also had a side of vegetables. The food was good, but over-heated. It was as if it had been blasted underneath a grill or in a microwave. This was evident by the film of sauce that existed on the monkfish and the dryness of the duck and accompanying potatoes that stuff the duck. Service was polite, courteous and efficient- Overall, quite good, and would recommend, but as a pub restaurant, and not necessarily a restaurant.

went here on Fathers Day as a group of 6, 4 adults and 2 children. Although we hadn't booked we got seated quickly. the staff were friendly and the food was lovely. Even the childrens chicken nuggetts were v. tasty and real chicken. All of our group was impressed and I thought it was very reasonable in the price. Will eat here more often.

We've eaten here a LOT in the last 2 years, especially for family occasions and loved it. This time I don't know whether they were having a BAD night or it has gone down hill but the food was TERRIBLE. It is expensive when you consider you have to pay for your sides, but usually the quality is there. Not this time! I ordered the ribs and rack of lamb Medium Rare. I got fatty fatty ribs with no meat on them and a obviously cooked and re-heated well done rack of lamb. You could see it was all dry on the outside from sitting under a light. The vegetables were microwaved and all crinkled at the edges. I sent it back and asked for steak which was OK and non-microwaved veg (of which I was told there was none!). My partner had the Duck which looked pre-cooked and heated and was dry, dry, dry. He ate it cause he was too hungry, but I refuse to eat and over-apy for seriously sub standard food. Both mains were accompanied by stuffed mash which turned out to be a mix of mash and stuffing, should never be tried. I really hope it was a bad night, as we loved this place. But I am reluctant to go there again!

Went for dinner with my girlfriend on a Sunday evening. The restaurant was quiet - it is a huge place! Staff were v nice seated and served well. Food was very good had chowder which was mild which I enjoy and Chicken ala king which was very tasty. Price wise it was ok. One black mark would definitely be a side is extra to the price of the main which is an unwelcome additional cost. I will go again.
