If you are craving steak this is the place. Other reviews state pricey, not to me. Worth every penny for excellent steak with all the normal sides offered at a steak restaurant-creamed spinach, carrots and turnips, mac and cheese, onion rings, mashed potatoes to name...More

If you like steaks you’ll not be disappointed, the dry aged grass fed meat is excellent. This time had the t-bone along with the Buckley Ale, it was amazing.

Not really child orientated in my opinion - tables very closely packed together ... I wouldn’t personally recommend - I have four children and I wouldn’t take them to this restaurant

Dublin's original steakhouse with the experience and knowledge of over 25 years of serving the perfect steak. We change our menus each season to reflect the best that Irish produce has to offer and to ensure the highest quality of local fresh seafood. We offer an informed wine list to meet all budgets and an extensive selection of cocktails and spirits. We are also open for weekday for lunch serving health and tasty dishes at very reasonable prices. The way in which we guarantee the highest quality in beef in both texture and flavour is by choosing Irish beef and the highest grade of traditional breeds of cattle. At F.X.BUCKLEY our prime cuts are hung on the bone at 4°C and at 80% humidity for a minimum of 28 days. Storing meat for several weeks where it can loose up to 16% of it's weight involves considerable expertise so all F.X.BUCKLEY butchers are specifically trained for the process. The benefit for our patrons is to experience the concentration and saturation of natural meat flavours and superior tenderness. Hence why you will hear experts use terms such as "buttery and rich", and "earthy and nutty" to describe our dry-aged beef.
