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.

We were seated without a reservation which was great. Ordered a small portion of mussels which ended up being a very decent size, great value, beautifully cooked with the most tasty brown bread. Chicken salad was tasty and served on a popadom which looked great but it would have benefited from some more lettuce. Good friendly service.

Restaurant were only open after the Covid 19 restrictions and as a group of 5 ladies we were unsure of what to expect....well No need to over think it. The lady owner (sorry i can't remember your name) made us feel so welcome and relaxed. Interior is warm and cosy. Menu and Food is very tasty, compliment to the chef and the service was very attentive. We had a lovely evening, happy to be in a restaurant rather than our kitchens🙂. Easy to recommend Grogans its a big 👍 from us. Thank you see yous next time round!

We have been visiting Grogan's in the beautiful village of Glasson for over 20 years and it has never disappointed. The food has been consistently excellent as has the pint of Guinness. The setting is cosy and comfortable, particularly on a cold winter's day when they have warm open fires to sit by. We had a family get together on a Saturday evening a few weeks ago where we had 10 sitting down to dinner. We were all accommodated at one of the large round tables by the windows. The food was excellent and the staff very friendly and attentive. The menu had a good choice of dishes that included vegetarian dishes. We would particularly recommend the lamb and the seafood. Also, we can strongly recommend the Guinness. Everyone enjoyed the meal and our thanks to Miriam and the team for making it so enjoyable. So, if you are in the Athlone area and want to experience great food in a cosy setting, we cannot recommend Grogan's highly enough.

Lovely old pub & restaurant in Glasson village. The chowder was delicious as was the chicken baguette. Chilli chicken wings were very spicy, which I like, but maybe a wee bit too much sauce, making eating a little messy. Obviously that’s simply a personal preference as I would happily order them again. Unfortunately my husband, who is tall, caught his head on a very low door frame. The pub is old and dark and he managed to give himself quite a wallop, breaking the skin in a number of places. The owner or manager was called and immediately provided antiseptic cream. A visible warning sign wouldn’t go astray.

We stumbled upon this bar and it was such a treat! The staff took our details for contact tracing and were all wearing face masks. Our waitress was experienced and professional throughout the service, which really made our visit. Lastly, the food was delicious. We had the soup and smoked salmon platter - both extremely tasty and filling. I would 100% recommend a stop at Grogans to anyone in the area!

Just been for dinner here and the food was out of this world.The seafood chowder was scrumptuous . The seafood platter was amazing and the Monkfish dish was so tasty.Service is very efficient and friendly. We are already talking about when we will return. 10/10 for everything.

Visited Sunday evening Bank Holiday weekend during a very busy period. Was greeted by a smiling friendly lady who was very happy to accommodate us at the bar as all tables occupied. The whole experience, food, service and atmosphere was excellent. The burger served on a homemade potato croquette and batter fish tasted amazing. Compliments to the chef. What struck me about Grogans staff was, they were extremely busy but still remembered to smile and have a few words so they are obviously happy in their work and this helps create a good atmosphere and service. 00 Guinness on draught another plus. Well done Grogans.

Busy. Staff efficient & friendly. Tasteless veggi option. Had goats cheese filo pastry parcel . Plentiful. Served with salad ( pre dressed), a tasteless red sauce, and very nice potato wedges. I could find almost no veg in the parcel . The goats cheese was more like cottage cheese- very bland. All in all a tasteless meal with plentiful sized portions.

We went there for an early evening dinner with a group of 5 people and they were able to cater for everyone. The food was delicious. They are very flexible and happy to cater for vegans as well. The staff was very friendly and attentive. Would definitely recommend and am hoping to return some time soon.

We had a fantastic night out here with friends. The food was amazing. We all had steak as we were told it is their specialty. It was perfectly prepared with loads of sides ... more food than we could handle. The homemade ice cream for desert was also delicious. Service was top-notch. The atmosphere was casual and relaxed. Prices are on the high side.

I went with my kids and we order 3 kids meals and 1 starter I said to the waiter that the food can be together so the kids meals can come so the waiter took the order and drinks. We had to ask for our drinks twice to receive them, that itself took 10 minutes then I got my starter so I asked again where the kids meals were then after 15 minutes when I finished my starter, I asked another waiter where the kids food is it took altogether to get 40 minutes for the kids to get their food, so I said to the waiter that we were waiting long 40 minutes exactly so finally we got the food and the waiter said, because of my starter the kids waited longer the problem is I asked 3 more waiters where the food was altogether the kids was nice and my meal was nice and the setting of the building is nice the veg don’t have any dressing and are very dry and my salad had lumps there was large pieces of onion and the waitresses did not help a lot, I’d even say that some of them were rude. I’m not coming back.

Extremely busy on the evening we called. We didn't hav a reservation so we were seated to a table after abt 15 minutes. Ordered mains and waited 45 mins before it arrived. Had to ask a staff member to check if it was ready. Alot of customers called in but everyone had to wait for a free table, it seemed a bit chaotic. Staff including the manager / person in charge were passing us by numerous times and never once asked if we were ok or offered the menu for desert or tea/coffee, so we paid and had coffee elsewhere. Table reservation would be recommended if you are going here over a weekend or evenings but that doesn't mean fast service! Food is excellent though!

Grogans is just one of those places that you will revisit for years once you’ve found it!! All 6 of us chose something different from the menu and all we’re really happy with our choices. I’m still thinking about their fresh, citrusy salad which I’ve tried to recreate in my own kitchen, not very successfully .. yet. Really enjoyable family treat!

We ate here earlier in the week. We were lucky to get a table at short notice. Social distancing requirements were well implemented. Service was prompt. To start we had very generous portions of garlic mushrooms and chicken wings. Delicious. We were very impressed by the 120z steak, perfectly cooked. My lamb shoulder was succulent, even mint sauce accompanying. Were too full for dessert unfortunately. Would not hesitate recommending Grogan's. Keep up the great work!

Had chowder there last week. It was really really very good chowder. Perfect creamy soup with oodles of the best of fish, mussels prawns etc. The 2 slices of brown bread were delicious, each a different recipe. We will definitely visit again when next in the area.
