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.

(2) It was very reasonably priced. (3) The staff were very attentive and courteous (4)...The place was spotless. Would definitely call again.More

We both ordered starters and mains. My starter was chicken wings, they were just OK,the bbq sauce was nice but the wings were nothing like they used to be. His burger, which he'd had there about 6 months previously, was nothing like as nice, no...sauce, no side salad or garnish. My mains was the cajun chicken stir fry. It tasted like the cajun spice was thrown on at the end, not cooked in at all. I'm a decent cook, the spice should have been added in earlier so it cooked in, this was not nice at all. We won't be back. We've recommended this place to so many friends visiting Galway, never againMore

The first day we tried for lunch here it was so busy, we went somewhere else. It has such good recommendations, so we tried another day, a bit later, got a table and had a good chicken and pasta dish. Service was fair, but my...hot chocolate was very good.More

We stopped here to watch the All-Ireland Football Match between Galway and Kerry. We were expecting more of a lively crowd. It was rather low-key, but the food was good and we had a good table to watch the match.

Ford was just alright, nothing special, curry I had was just a tomatoe sauce, with very little taste or spice. bit dirty and dark inside, pint was completely flat and stale. Staff were attentive and polite, but I did see them counting tips in jar...behind the bar, handling coins, and then handling plates/drinks etc.More

My friend and I ate here and ordered the chicken wings for starters. Then I had the bangers and mash for mains and she had fish and chips. The portion size for starter chicken wings were insane! And they were excellent too. The bangers and...mash was delicious as well, but the starter portion of wings definitely fills you up. The drinks were just okay, but 5 stars as the food was amazing.More

Food is excellent. Great service and atmosphere. Great place for family, friends for lunch and dinner. I also hear they do a great Irish Breakfast. If you are in Galway for a couple of days you must come here!

I studied abroad in Galway for a couple months. My friends and I went here so many times for their wings and spicy wedges. The food is amazing and comes in large portions. The atmosphere is incredible!

The cellar is one of my favorite places to eat in galway. Whether it's a family, friend or solo outing it is perfect. The staff are always a pleasure and not only is the food delicious but there is something for everyone.

As a visitor to Galway we hadn't anticipated the need to book in advance. The Cellar were very good in accommodating us for drinks and lite bites. All the girls should be commended for their welcome and attentiveness. Great cocktails too. I would definitely recommend.

Went to this restaurant last Saturday evening.. Food was average but the service was awful. The waitress got my boyfriends order wrong when he pointed it out to her she just said ok & took his plate.. Arrived back 15 mins or so later with...correct order (I had almost finished my food) put the plate down without a word or an apology for the mix up or delay! Didn’t come near us again we had to ask another waitress passing for some more drinks.. also when the waitress was taking our order she kept rubbing her nose with her hand under her visor and then we saw her take down and tie her hair back up while standing around chatting to other staff.. I would not go back there!More
