Crackbird is seems to be like a hipster restaurant, stools and tables, funky food menu and drinks. I didn't know what to order from the parma lemon chicken wings, soy chicken or buttermilk chicken just to name a few things. I ended up going for the chilli chicken bites which wore lovely didn't really taste like chilli but I enjoy... More

On a Saturday night at dinner time, it was nearly impossibly to set foot in a pub in Temple Bar let alone find seating. After searching for almost 45 minutes while walking through the city, we were going to give up when we came across this gem- they serve whole and half chickens fried with a variety of flavors. They... More

I went today with colleagues from the office for nice dinner and chill out after work. This place is amazing! Food was delicious, service was quick and super friendly people, price was good for this high quality chicken, very nice atmosphere and perfect music to relax but not fall asleep over your dinner plate. Highly recommending it to everyone who's... More

Had dinner on bank holiday Monday, although it was quiet they'd run out of chicken wings. The food we did have was very good - delicious buttermilk chicken and chicken crunches; the slaw was very nice and potato croquettes were excellent. We had a spinach salad which was huge (as you'd hope for 10 euros) and super tasty but it... More

We were a party of 6 and had a good range of chicken dishes (buttermilk chicken, honey and harbanero wings and the chicken crunches). I felt the buttermilk chicken was a little greasy but it was ok. We had sides of potato salad (good) slaw (ok) and bread rolls (ok). The homemade lemonades tasted more of sugar than lemon but... More

Fried chicken was soooo good. I'm glad a friend had told me about this restaurant. So many options in Dublin it's nice to have a recommendation of something good!

I went here after hearing a few good stories of the place. The restaurant tries to hard to be a hipster spot, which just isn't practical when you want to sit down and eat a meal. Ordered the soy and butter milk chickens, I think they are extremely expensive for what they are and don't come with any sides. The... More

Went to Crackbird for a work night out. The restaurant was packed and we were a fairly big table but still the service was pretty good. The food was delicious, original and great value. The wine selection was a real let down, terrible cheap wines, so maybe drink something else!
