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 visited on a week night for dinner, and were served promptly. Marta was our server and she was helpful and friendly and so pleasant! Food was good. Seems like it would be a lively place during the summer!

Joe Watty's has it all -- great food, amazing people who treat new customers like old friends (thanks, Grace!), perfect location, memorable ambiance, a wine list that the rest of Ireland should use, and a guarantee of a lasting memory of a lovely meal/experience that you will want to do again in the future and share with all your friends.

John B A Chara. To be honest I find it hard to take your review seriously. If most people got a meal as you describe they would inform the server send it back and not pay for it and I would perfectly agree with them. If you got such a meal in our establishment today why did you not make us aware of your dissatisfaction, if it was over cooked like a piece of pitch pine how were you able to say it was not fresh fish? We take genuine complaints seriously and given a chance we try to make up for a meal that fails to meet a customers expectation and make an effort to address the issue, and should that fails ( which rarely does ) we at least do not charge for a meal that someone does not eat. The fact you did not let us know in anyway what so even, as I see it your complaint is not considered genuine by us for as I stated earlier you would have brought it to out attention and would not have paid for deep fried pitch pine. Le meas. Joe Watty's.

Limited morning menu here. We Had the chowder. Wouldn’t recommend it. Neither of us liked it or finished it. Even the bread was not fresh. Very disappointed.

836walkinc A Chara. So sorry your experience was not what you expected it to be. Our Menu which you say in limited it was we advertise on our website and other social media outlets which we are happy about as are 99% of our customers also. Our chowder is made to a consistent standard, but I can understand it may not be to every ones liking, if the bread was not fresh I apoligise for that there's no excuse I can offer as we go through so much bread daily , but I take your word for that and I'm sorry for same. Just wondering did you bring all to the attention of your server? could have offered you soup instead and certainly sorted out the bread issue. Once again I'm truly sorry your experience was not what you or I wished it to be. If you wish you may contact me on our e-mail and discuss this further. I do hope this did not take pleasure from your Árainn visit overall. Le meas. Joe Watty.

Had to wait about an hour for a table. Good out door dining space some sheltered some not. Mostly fried food, limited light dishes - sandwiches/salads what was on the menu were very dear. I had chowder and it was expensive about E4 more than in clare which is alot a soup should not be the same price as main meal. The rest of my party had burgers either chicken or meat, they enjoyed them. Was very busy, but limited dining on the Islands at the moment.

Had a pint of Guinness there yesterday… wasn’t great, we wouldn’t be enticed back. If your not having food your not important enough to get a table. (I realise they are not the only ones guilty of this).

Joe K A Chara. Thank you for your review. I regret you felt this way as we do not operate in anyway what so ever in the manner you suggest. We take care of all customers we are after all a Pub and serve drinks to customers of age without obligation for food . For you to say so is unfair and for you to think that is how we operate is your problem not ours, we welcome all. Of course these few weeks its peak holiday time with many families looking for food, but as I said earlier we take care of all customers within reason. Le meas. Joe Watty's.
