Thunder Road Café
Ordered Medium steak but it was Medium well. The ambiance was really energetic.
All pre made food with sauce over it, this place is not what it was years ago. Toilets were very dirty. Bring back the old TRC !
Waited 40 mins for bland dry food. kids meal was the worst
Great atmosphere with live DJ playing requests. A Saturday night so understand it was extremely busy but reservation made for 8.15 eventually seated at 8.55 after reminding front of house we were still waiting at the bar. Drinks were great I got the cocktail of the week. Enjoyed starter to share. Mains were ok and my partner's included a raw chip. Our waiter seemded a bit distracted and got our drinks order wrong and had to be reminded about bringing us the bill. Enjoyable atmosphere with good enough food.
The only problem I had with thunder road was my burger was not cooked it was raw. I never complained as it was my daughters 18th and I didn’t want anything to upset her night. We had a brilliant night. Everyone else’s food was top notch. Drinks and servive were top class. Well worth a visit I’ll be back
Even for an early evening reservation the place was buzzing, great start to the night.
Enjoyed my meal in thunder road, the only problem we had was the noise of the speakers! We had to ask to be moved twice! As we were seated directly under a speaker both times! Far too loud for comfortable conversations.
Good place to bring kids and adults , very relaxed atmosphere
The atmosphere was very energetic which is great for a Saturday night in Temple Bar and the staff were excellent as well as the cocktails. However, I wasnt happy with the food I think its very over rated and pricey for what it was.
Buzzing atmosphere, very good service and good American grub & cocktails. Had a great time here as a large group
Waited 45 mins for food, drink was well gone at this stage had to order another maybe a business tactic I don’t know I was hungry didn’t eat all day and wasn’t expecting to wait so long. Likewise my partner was the same. Recommend eating before you get there just Incase . That’s all that ruined it for us .
Great location. Service was a bit slow but in fairness the restaurant was very busy. Couple of the drinks had to go back as they were flat.All of the food arrived hot and together.. Food was very good quality and tasted lovely..
Service from Andre(?) was terrible, he was so rude! He kept turning our light assuming we were asking where a friends drink order was again (as we were waiting a very long time for 1 drink) but we had wanted to order dessert so then took our order in a hurry, which came out wrong for one friend. Jo Jo was lovely though! However, absolutely no choice on the menu anymore as it has gone so, so limited and expensive! Strawberry daquairi gone from €5 to €8?! This used to be a favourite place for myself and friends where we went regularly but we are very reluctant to return as it has just gone downhill so much! Food still tasted nice but at the end of the day, a burger is a burger. Very disappointed which is a pity to say as it used to be so great!
Lovely meal but drinks way too expensive.
Very disappointed in the meun choice and flavour off the food chips were full off grease and the spagetti bolagnse was water .
Nice service, nice food. Loud music add energy in your life.
Had our 7th New Years Eve visit, best of treatment and VIP club free cocktails
Very noisy and full of children at 8pm. Not at all relaxing or enjoyable because of this.
Friendly staff, great atmosphere, food was really good
Was there new year eve with my fiance and friends too I also had my 18th birthday there I love this place
Forgot drinks few times
Family of 5, 2 ordered from kids menu. Kids bbq wings were amazing and more than enough in portion. She could have done with a few wipes or a finger bowl. Kids chicken burger, same as anywhere else. Adult meals chicken tenders a little tough but tasty seasoning. Two beef burgers were divine, both adults enjoyed them. Chips on all 5 plates could have been cooked longer. They were still some hard and left alot of waste. Would however go back for the burgers and wings.
Big improvement on food and noise level we were here eariler in the year and couldn’t hear one another talk the music was great and level was perfect . Food was amazing again a big improvement compared to previous visits.
The vegan food was lovely, the meat based food not so good - the taste of the meat (ribs and wings) and sauce was bland and the chips were frozen and tasteless. Drinks were good and service was very good as was the atmosphere.
Fab friendly staff!
Very friendly to the kids. Very good value for
We have been going to Thunderoad for 14 years each Christmas. I dont think we will be back though. We always went as it was great value for money, the food was excellent and the atmostphere was really lively.
However this year the menu was reduced, the prices had gone up and the quality of the food was really not very good. We ordered 2 10oz Sirloins one of which didnt look anywhere near 10oz, which were served with vine tomatoes and some fries, for € 24.95 this was not good value for money. Chicken Curry was very dry and a a pasta dish cost € 18 as she added some chicken. € 146 for 5 mains, 2 starters and 1 Dessert was very poor. Service was pleasant. Restaurant didnt seem as busy as previous years. Maybe word is getting out. Such a shame as it used to be briliant and I used to recommend to everyone I knew. Not anymore i'm afraid.
The service was very good but the music was a bit too loud to have a conversation
Waited over 40 mins for our table although we’d booked. Waiting staff very inattentive, asked for water twice, it never came. Asked three separate staff for colouring crayons. In the end we got then ourselves. Food was nice and fairly priced. Would have paid extra for better service. Interior of restaurant very shabby and needs a serious renovation.
Incredible value for kids at weekends. Very friendly staff
Was a lovely evening, except the music was too loud
We had to wait a long time for someone to serve us. Our food was cold and I couldn’t finish my meal becuase It was turning my stomach. The prices for the food were too much for the quality.
Service was slow & it took a really long time to get our food. It didn't seem that busy.
The chips were cheap.
Burgers were nice & cocktails good.
Good atmosphere, service not great, meals all arrived in stages, kids were almost finished eating before all the adults were served, one person wasn't served at all until we asked. Food wasn't great. Music was just a shade too loud, had to shout over it to talk. Good for a bit of Christmas atmosphere but think we'll be trying somewhere else next year
Overall really good experience with the one exception we were seated under a speaker and the music was playing way too loud.
Staff were really nice and particularly good with the kids. Great choice of menu and the food was really tasty. We found it to be a very enjoyable dining experience.
Great spot for a birthday booking. We had a group of 14 and they had no problem dealing with that. We all got served very quickly too.
Love it here. Staff are always amazing and so helpful. 100% recommend it.
Nice food with great service
Lovely restaurant, great menu and fast friendly service.
Top notch burgers
Child friendly and overall a great atmosphere
