Our last night in Ireland and the awards and recommendations were spot on; Masterson's was outstanding! The decor was formal, yet relaxed and welcoming, the service was excellent, the food was excellent with hefty portions. Outstanding price, value, location, an excellent place for both an intimate evening and a place for your best friends to get together for a sandwich... More

Food is amazing. However the Aer ice to get drinks was slow. When we arrived 20mins at the table before asked do we want a drink. Another 15 for it to be served. Glasses were empty when the starters arrived and we had finished the starter before the order was taken! Only issue I would not hesitate to eat here... More

Walked in on a Saturday night and the place was busy, but we were promptly seated by a lovely gentleman. Ordered the wings to start, absolutely delicious, and then went for the Steakhouse pizza. Smashing service, the waitress that looked after us for the night was good fun, very chatty and made our visit that bit better. Would highly recommend!

We're based on the Main Street so we get very busy, we're glad you got a table and would recommend us to others. It means a lot. Thank you and we hope to see you again soon.... More

Having been here before a few years ago we decided to check it out again. We had been there at Christmas and it was awful but we felt that it deserved another try. We were wrong. The food is way over priced for what it is. The steaks were tough and the rest of the food was lukewarm. It took... More

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 !
