Description: About Masterson's ... Masterson's Steakhouse opened its doors in May 2009. After training in hotel & Catering Management, which included a stint in the famous Ballymaloe house and three years learning the ways of some of Chicago's most famous eateries, we decided the time was right to open an American Style Steakhouse. Upon Arrival we took apart the interior of the original shop, an Italian Restaurant, for refurbishment. We closed for 4 weeks and reopened on the 5th of May. The intervening Seven Years have been a fantastic adventure, a lot of our original staff are still with us, supplemented by some fantastic people who have joined our project since. All of our Steaks our 100% Irish and fully traceable farm to fork. Our salads are all sourced fresh from the farms of Rush, our vegetables also when the weather is good enough ! We have a full breakdown of nut allergies, available from chef upon request, which is also on view outside the kitchen. All of our Sauces are Gluten free, we have gluten free bread, Pasta and Pizza. We are proud to be associated with The Nutrition & Health Foundation and the Restaurants association of Ireland. The initiative is designed to enhance the range and portion size of nutritious meals available to families in the Restaurant setting. We continue to strive to be the best, to put only the best produce on your plate & to offer an experience like no other !

we had a lovely lunch with 3 of us getting Ciabatta served with home made chips or potatoe skins (amazing) - there was so much food - quality and service was excellant. Price was so reasonable - cannot wait to go for an evening meal and enjoy the evening menu with a glass of wine

Our last meal on our Irish vacation. Walked in about 6 on a weeknight and they had a few seats for those of us with no reservation. Knew they were known for steaks by the reviews, and wanted dessert so we opted to skip the starters. We each ordered the fillet with different sauces and chips. Eaton Mess for dessert, wonderful clouds of ice cream, whipped cream, fruit and crushed meringues. Very sweet attentive server who enjoys all the visitors to her country.

Had a family meal here and while the food was just ok I was very disappointed with the service. It looked chaotic watching the staff run around from A to B without actually looking organised. it was like nobody knew what tables they were working . It was pot luck to get the attention of the staff when we had to ask 3 times for our wine before I went to the bar area and got it myself and poured the wine for my guests . I also had to ask for our starter plates to be taken away 20 mins after they were finished and even then they only removed half before I asked again for the second half. Having worked in the service industry I was just disappointed to see that a busy restaurant such as this could be great if there was better organisation with the staff and there service. There are many great restaurants out there and if Mastersons wants to be part of the elite they need to improve its service ten fold.

Friendly staff- toilets clean with lovely smelly soap.
Decor could do with a freshen up.

our food was served cool - not pleasant. Pizza was brought away came back less cooler.
