My fiancé and I had a wonderful dinner here. The seafood was delicious and fresh and well seasoned. We enjoyed lobster and sea bass, with sides of crab claws and shrimp. Although I'm allergic to shrimp, the wait staff took care to provide me with...More

We arrived in Galway in lousy weather, and to add matters worse, by the evening the rain was quite intense. And thankfully we didn't allow the weather to disrupt our plans and managed to have dinner at O'Grady's on the Pier. And what a dinner!...More

One of the two best dinners we four had during our week in Ireland (the other at Fade Street Social in Dublin.) beautiful setting, fantastic staff and chef, meticulously prepared seafood! Absolutely worth the 10-minute drive (or cab) to Barna for a memorable meal!

I went with high expectations to O'Grady's which may have been my downfall. The food my family & I had was good but very pricey for lunch time. I was surprised at the lack of atmosphere in the pub/restaurant. The bar staff hardly looked in...More

The menu is not that broad. Pretty limited, but of the four of us, we got four different courses and all enjoyed our meals.
