The old fort really lives up to it name. what a place. was ther last night for a steak after hearing alot of good report i had to go there to see what the people were talking about. the steak was just out of this world. from the time we arrived there till we left the staff were brillant and very friendly. the chef came out to join us when we were finish and gave us some ale to sample which was good also. could not say a bad word about this place. if you are a lover of steak this is the place to go. will definitly be going back here before i leave for the USA. keep up the good work Marko and Gus.

Was there last night with my wife and had the early bird menu , I haven't been there since the new management took over bit will be back soon, brilliant value for 19.90 had the fried Camembert and the striplion steak , the steak was to die for lovely char flavoured and had horseradish sauce and there was breaded silver skin onions and big juicy mushrooms and REAL homemade crunchy chips and a lovely fresh mix of salad , had the Argentine Malbec wine , it was lovely with the steak , as we were leaving we meet Gus the chef and chatted away about steak and football ( he's argentine/ Italian so has a big interest in World Cup) , can't wait to come back and enjoy more of these fabulous steaks

Wow
Fabulous steaks, portions are massive .
We had an early bird special 2 courses for €19,90
Unbelievable value
The biggest steak I've ever eaten arrived with hand cut home made chips
Couldn't even eat 1/2 of eat
I genuinely can't get over the value for money
2 early birds starters & 14oz steaks plus 2 drinks €46
Steaks were so tender they would melt in your mouth
We will defo be back

I and some of my family were looking for somewhere new to try on the June Bank Holiday. Some suggested the Old Fort in Shannonbridge.

I was not expecting too much but were we all surprised and delighted with the outcome?

I have to say it was one of the best dining experiences we have had for a long time. We the steaks, duck, chicken and even pasta dishes. Every dish was perfection!! The wine, an Argentinian Malbec was lovely and the desserts had everybody smiling.

The restaurant management is new, only 8 weeks and the theme is Argentinian.

Overall, a very happy outcome to a wet Bank Holiday and YES, we will be back.

Sunday of a bank holiday weekend, time for a nice meal. All the good restaurants booked. Some one said try the Old Fort in Shannonbridge, eight miles from Ballinasloe. Took a chance and went with it, Turned out a good decision. Steak to die for, Chicken melt in your mouth. Good service.
Will call again.
