Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
Learn more about our review moderation.

Average at best, unsure where all the good reviews come from. I notice the genuine ones are from pre covid, the latest are a lot of 1 or 2 reviews ever written which is always concerning. Menu really really basic at lunch, goujons and chips,...fish and chips 14.50. One salad, a stew, really nothing stand out. Took ages to get anyone to take an order, food arrived was very basic, fish very poor, thick soggy batter and overcooked fish with a few chips. Looks like a nice pub if you just wanted a few drinks, would not go back, hugely overrated, felt cheated paying what we did for mediocre lunch.More

We recently had our family dinner in the gastro pub. We were greeted by a lovely lady Sandra. She looked after us from start to finish. Our little niece was well looked after with colouring pages, crayons and all the attention, it was great! The...food was very good, and great value. We really enjoyed our night and will definitely be back at some stage. Thank you Sandra and your team for making our dinner so special!More

Came on the bank holiday weekend. Staff were brilliant especially the waiters were very organised. Blonde girl didn’t get her name but was very orientated.

This was the worst meal we ever had in the world. Overcharged, got the wrong meals, food not cooked, service slow even though no-one eating at the time, reduced menu and then didn't even have one of the five they offered. Very poor for coeliac...dietary requirements. Not good enough at all. I would have given no stars but you have to give one.More

We had a wonderful experience at this restaurant. The servers were fun and friendly. The food was amazing and the atmosphere was really cool. If you go, you have to go downstairs. If we every make it back to Galway, we'll be back to this...place for food, fun and drinks.More

I visited McCabes in August with 3 friends from Scotland. We all had Burgers and they were the best we had ever tasted. The service was exemplary in these difficult time and despite the distance I will definitely return to this gem.

This place is literally the worst place I have ever eaten in, food tasted awful, it was dirty and 3 of us ended up with food poisoning. This place is the pits.
