My rating in the other review is incorrect. A one star is all I would give the Grand not five...

I had lunch at the Grand today with a group of people from work, we were out for the day enjoying the sites around Wicklow, until our meals arrived. Two members of my party had sausage and chips, the sausages were over cooked, I had a carbonara, it was tasteless and seemed all elements were put into the bowl and reheated, I had to leave some of the tasteless chicken. Some of the ladies in the group had bacon which was placed on top of the cabbage and mash then white sauce was poured over the lot. To say we were very disappointed is an understatement no one in my party of seven will be returning to the Grand again for food and we won't be reccommending others to go there either..

Have eaten here a couple of times over the last few months and enjoyed the food, even though the restaurant/bar can be a bit on the chilly side. On our recent visit I was very disappointed with the service and the food. I ordered lasagna which was served with thick cut chips, side salad and a very large portion of coleslaw, my partner had the fish & chips. There were about 4/6 other people in the Bar when we arrived, service was very slow, staff were not that interested in serving us..... We got our drinks and menus and sat down, no staff member approached us to take our order so friend went to the bar to place our order for food. Food arrived after what seemed a long time (we though they had forgot about us). Presentation of food was good, but when I tasted the lasagne it was cold, in fact parts of it were stone cold. My understanding of reheating food is that is has to reach 75 degrees in temperature before it can be served!!!!! The chips were lovely, my friends fish & chips were good and hot. As I could not get a staff members attention I brought the food back to the bar myself stating that the lasagna was cold. I had kept the chips and eat them while I waited for the return of the lasagna. A while later I got a new plate of food piping hot which I enjoyed but the second batch of chips that were served were undercooked, they were very hard. It was very disappointing to say the least. The waiter who served us apologised several times and did not charge for the lasagna dish, the waitress was not that interested, I have recommended this Bar/Restaurant to family members but I doubt if we will return.

I stayed at the Grand hotel although I had seen some terrible reviews I thought Id go and make up my own mind. I was dying all day so I jus wanted decent grub and a few drinks. I ordered Chicken wings for starters which were amazing, then I had chicken Korma which was beautiful and to finish up I had sticky toffee pudding from start to end my meal was fab and great atmosphere in the bar. I seen they have great deal on for Valentines day which I would highly recommend. If its value for money then this is a lovely spot.

Ate here on a railtour. Service was provided by an extremely pleasant and efficient young woman. I chose garlic mushrooms to start whilst my mother had a chowder and our friend had a cheese starter. All of us loved our starters and in addition the brown bread with the chowder was beautiful. For mains I had beef my mother opting for corned beef and our friend deciding on sea bass. All of us again really enjoyed our mains. This eatery offers excellent value for money for the highly flavoursome home made food that it serves. Full marks to the chef and his team. The atmosphere was very good in this bright and airy establishment. Looking forward to dining here again.

We went there for a meal on Tuesday evening, 2 adults + 1 child at 9:15 PM. Good news first: Free private secure car parking and Child eats free !!! Traditional bar food menu, I ordered day's special red curry with jasmine rice (price €10.95), she ordered baked Cod with veges (price €11.95) and child ordered Chicken burger (price: Free). all the food was generous portions, with great taste and professional presentation. My curry was bursting with flavour and aroma, and the chicken was basted in yougurt and spcies for a reasonable time before being cooked thus infusing all the spice aroma and flavour. i didn't try her cod so can't say myself but she was full of compliment too. Chicken burger was good sized portion with cajun roasted chicken and roasted pineapples. Chips on the side. Pints of lager €4.50 each !!! Oh, and since we liked the Jasmine rice so much, half way through our meals, we requested two extra portions of rice for each of us, which was provided promptly and happily !!! In the end the child even got a complimentary ice-cream. the total bill came to €33.90 which I believe was a very good value given the quality and standard of service. All in all we were very happy, and we will go back next time we are in Wicklow town. Thanks a lot again !!!

Met 2 friends for lunch here today. We were early and the bar was nearly empty when we arrived but by the time we were leaving it had filled up nicely. Most main courses are less than 10 euros. One friend got Caesar salad which she said was very good. Another got sausage and mash with onion gravy which was also lovely. I order Chicken Kiev and Chips as was on the menu but I was offered potatoes and veg and I took them and was glad that I had. I had a beautiful meal. We followed up with Cappucinos and this was the only flaw as one had to be sent back as it was not hot. But overall a most enjoyable meal and I will be back

Called in on Bank Holiday Monday during Wicklow Regatta. was very full but we managed to get a table in smaller bar area. Despite number of people service was excellent, they obviously had extra staff on for the day. Ate off the new "All main Courses for €9 menu" Burger was very good but fish pie was very dissapointing, containing mainly prawns and mussels topped with very watery potato. We eat here regularly for quick filling meals but can be very noisy in main bar.

3 called in here about 6pm for the pub grub in wynnes bar. place was busy but we managed to find a seat. staff were quick and helpful. good selection of traditional pub grub fare. two of us had the roast chicken and ham served with carrots and cauliflower which was excellent. however the other person was not as happy with the fish pie which was described as containing smoked and white fish. but which turned out to be mainly shellfish also the white wine sauce left a lot to be desired. was cheap enough at €30 but the fish pie left a poor taste in one mouth.

This is my favourite restaurant in Wicklow Town. It costs a fraction of what other restaurants are charging meaning we can justify going out more often. All main courses are €9.00 and my three favourites are chicken kiev, beer battered cod and the chicken sweet thai curry. Wine by the glass is the most generous I have seen anywhere!

We have visited the Grand Hotel to eat a few times and it was just ok. Last month we heard there had been changes and decided to try it again. The service was very slow and staff seemed not interested. The food was just ok but the whole experience was bad. Given it every chance at different times i.e. lunch and evening but all in all it's not somewhere we will be going back to.
