Excellent food and service as always from ThunderRoad. This was my first time using First Table and it was brilliant. A great offer and one that i will be definitly using again.

ThunderRoad menu options are great, something on the menu for everyone and the staff are very attentive and friendly. Great atmosphere in the place. A firm favorite when in town.

Really pleasant experience, lovely staff, daughter 12th birthday and staff made a effort to make it a special occasion, thought there must be a catch to getting 50% off the bill but no issues at all. Delighted with the deal

Staff were friendly, brilliant idea with the the light on the table, turn it upside down when you want service and it turns red. Staff came to your attention straight away. Food was good too, very kid-friendly. Desserts very delicious, we left full to the brim, happy out.

They don't take the dirty plates and dirty glass of your table, but this a little point, what really matter is: the food is great!!!! We was in 4 girls, we asked for Ribs, wings (the wings are hot, with pepper or something that I didn't like, but my friends liked), chesse onion rings (you really need try this), fries with cheese and bacon and nachos!!! We get out there so full hahaha and this is great, sometimes we need this. The place is very interesting, good music, and tematic, remember me about USA, we loved so much!

Yet again we had a great experience from start to finish. We were looked after by a great waiter Jeff he went above and beyond for us nothing was too much trouble. It was both my sister and aunties birthdays and the staff came out and sang happy birtday to them I was a nice little touch and It made our night .we will see you all again very soon thank you x

We arrived at the restaurant an hour prior to our booking. We started the night with few drinks at the bar and then we were shown to our table. We booked for 4 guests and we also had a small child with us which the staff were very accommodating about and made sure she was kept occupied while we waited for our food.
We ordered two starters to share which consisted of their most popular starters such as wings, ribs, nachos, corn and garlic bread. The two platters were enough for 4 people sharing with some left overs.
Then followed the mains which included a steak, chicken fajitas, beef burger and a vegan burger plus a kiddies meal. All meals were extremely tasty and nothing was a hassle to the servers.
Main thing about this restaurant is it's location. It is located right in the middle of Temple Bar, in the middle of the city, very accessible by public transport and very popular among both tourists and locals. The American theme gives this place a different vibe to the rest of Temple Bar. It stands out from the crowd and you're sure to enjoy the atmosphere and the visual aspect of the restaurant.

we thoroughly enjoyed our experience from start to finish. The food and service cannot be faulted. our waitress was very attentive, and over heard us saying happy birthday to my 14 year old niece.
after our meal a number of staff arrived with a sparkling plate of ice-cream with happy birthday written in caramel sauce. They sang happy birthday to Caitlin and it was such a lovely touch.

I booked a table for four to celebrate a birthday on Sunday evening. My daughter then hoped to bring a friend and i reluctantly called to see if there was anything they could do given how these deals generally work. I couldn't have been treated better, it was no problem at all and the lady who answered was really helpful. That alone had the night set for me, but the food and the service at the restaurant was also fantastic. 3 steaks all cooked differently and all wolfed down, Their wings and blue cheese dip deserve a reputation of their own and a perfect portion had me licking my fingers. All topped off with some nice beer and a fab sharing desert, myself and the kids ( late teens and early 20s) couldn't have asked for more. Thank you Thunder Road!
No problem with 2 payments either, Customer service as it should be.
Cant wait to go back.

We had a brilliant time at the ThunderRoad Cafe. We’ve always walked by it in Temple Bar but had never thought to go in until we saw it on First Table. We had a share combo starter which was nearly enough to fill us! The burgers and steak sandwich were delicious and presented nicely. We also had Long Island ice teas and, again, they were gorgeous. Our experience was really made by our server Rebecca. She was extremely friendly, full of chat and looked after us really well.
It’s great to have finally gone and we’ll definitely be back!

James Reilly

This is a warm and comfortable place to eat on a cold winter's day. As soon as I arrived I had a special request and it was handled with a "no problem" straight away. Keeping the customer happy is a priority here, and it shows. The atmosphere is upbeat with funky music and cheeky decor.
The tasty potato skins starter came with a mini salad as well as cheese and bacon. The substantial chicken enchilada main course was packed with chicken and came with a good choice of sides. All the staff were very attentive (Rebecca the floor manager gets a special mention) and service was fast and friendly. A great dining experience. Thumbs up!

Food was nice. Staff were not the most pleasant. Was left waiting at the door while staff chatted. When I mentioned I had a voucher, I was cut off before I could finish saying it. Ordered three rounds of drinks, each time they didn’t have one type of drink which was a bit much. Noticed people left waiting at the door for a long time also, when they tried to seat themselves, a staff member would abruptly tell them off and bring them back to enterance and make a face which was rude.
