Bison Bar & BBQ
Meat was dry, especially the Ribs and Brisket which was very disappointing. Sides were tasty and service was good and very friendly.

It was our first time in Bison and it was fab 😍 the staff were really attentive, the food was delicious and the cocktails even more so. Cant wait for our next trip
Hi LisaB, Thanks so much for your wonderful review, I'm so glad you enjoyed every part of your experience. Please come back again soon! Thanks, Fiona
Casual dining and nice food and I would say good for a group
The restaurant was very cold though as they left the doors open to the bar and people were coming in and out constantly so it was very drafty which made it less enjoyable. I had to keep my coat on
Hi Anon, Thanks so much for taking the time to leave us a review. Unfortunately the door to the bar is very heavy and this makes it difficult for the waiting staff to carry the trays through and hold the door open at the same time. I will take your feedback into consideration and see if there's anything we can do o fix this problem. Thanks, Fiona
It's pretty basic dining, a bit rough and ready. The Brisket was ok but nothing special. We had to request menus as none were immediately forthcoming.
I saw a good few plates of ribs going by and they looked great but unfortunately I hadn't ordered them. Maybe next time, if there is one.
Hi Jock, Bison is designed around the traditional way that BBQ is done in America, that's why we have the kitchen rolls and the food is served on trays-we were the first place in Europe to have a Southern Pride smoker. The Brisket is smoked for 14 hours to develop the flavor, I'm sorry it didn't meet your expectations. Feel free to come back anytime, I assure you our food really is fantastic. Thanks, Fiona
The food was awful. I used to go there 2 years ago but the quality of the food isn’t the same. By the time we were there the restaurant was empty and still the waiter couldn’t provide us a good service.
Hi LuizaD, I'm really sorry that you didn't enjoy your recent experience in Bison bar. Would you be able to email me more details about your food? I would be more than happy to have you guys back in again for a meal to show you the fantastic food that we have here, just email me at firstname.lastname@example.org and I can get you booked in for any night your free. My deepest apologies you were dissapointed, this is certainly not the standard of food or service that we are all about. Thanks, Fiona
Nice food, kind waitresses and a nice atmosphere. Would recommend the place.

A great place for a relaxed beer and some good old fashioned bbq food. However the menu is not extensive and prices are maybe a little on the high side

Hi DanielleS, Thanks so much for taking the time to leave us a review. We're really glad you decided to try us out for lunch and we hope to see you back again soon. Thanks, Fiona
Our booking went through but no tables were available as NYE. Staff were so helpful and managed to get us seated very quickly. Food was excellent
Toilets are a disaster. Gents toilets have no locks in the door!!! FFS
Very friendly staff, the burger was great and the pecan pie, a little chilli when we first went it but we warmed up then
Food was very dry and overcooked and not very plenty full. Not much flavour either. Would not go back
Excellent grub and really friendly staff. Nice atmosphere. Would definitely recommend.
Hi DewiE Thanks so much for the 4 star review, Im delighted you enjoyed your visit to Bison & I hope to see you in again soon. Cheers, Graham
Good food and value for money. Shots too expensive ;-)
Went for my mates stag do to Bison and it was a great choice. It was great value, awesome service and the food was unbelievable!.
Nice place and very nice staff - the grill was not working so the menu was limited but it became a bit of a joke with the group I was with so there was no issue. The staff were really nice about everything and the brisket lived up to it's recommendation...
I still think this is the best BBQ in Dublin. Anytime I'm near Dublin I'll find some excuse to go there! We had just come from a BBQ festival, and with little exceptions, the food from the Bison Bar was the only best BBQ we had all weekend! Thanks guys
Authentic Nashville style bbq served by knowledgeable passionate staff
Had a lovely meal here with some friends. Food was delicious and good value for decent sized portions. Staff were really friendly and helpful. Will definitely be back.
We ate here on a Sunday and were immediately let down as it was quiet so ribs and chicken weren't available. Undeterred we ordered brisket, pulled pork, & beef sausage. I did ask, as it was Sunday, if the brisket was fresh today and was told it was. I did find it a bit dry. There were some nice pieces in there, but about half of the brisket was dry and not great. Their traditional house bbq sauce was great and helped with the dry brisket. The pulled pork was great (how could you go wrong?) and went great with their mustard bbq sauce. The beef sausage was okay but I would have much preferred ribs. As for the sides we over-ordered as we didn't know that 1 order of cornbread would feed 4. It was delicious but oily so you wouldn't want a lot. The onion rings were bland and not good. The beans, which we were told were spicy, were just ordinary. The garlic potatoes were nice. The hot wings were well prepared but just standard pub-grub, not bbq'ed. The bill was nearly 100 quid, we were stuffed and satisfied, but at this price we'll try somewhere else next time we're hankering for bbq.
Great food, good service, nice staff. We enjoyed the dinner with a group of 9 people, I asked for decorations and we got it. Staff was very friendly and helpfull nice clean environment.
Service was very good and food was quick out and verrrrry tasty!
Bison was recommended to me by a friend. I decided to bring the family along and the food was shockingly poor. The half chicken was dry and hard to eat, the brisket looked like two slices of roast beef and the ribs came from a very hungry animal as there was nothing of substance on the bones. Some menu items were unavailable and the only saving grace was the waitress, she was very pleasant and helpful. If you like BBQ food and good value for excellent tasting food stay away from Bison and pop across the Liffey to My Meat Wagon. They know a thing or two about BBQ food.
Food was great. Great service ans friendly staff my son is 9 and its his favourite place for food.
Great place to eat BBQ in Dublin. Recommended to book if you have a large party. Will visit again..
Hi Mark , Thank you looking forward to your return visit , Have a great week ;-)

Hi Alan , Thank you for taking the time to review us here at Bison bar and leave us 5 stars We hope you will return soon, Regards Management
Bbq restaurant so 4 of us came for ribs to try a new place to eat and they had none left, substituted it with a sausage plate and they were basically two big hot dogs on a plate
Pretty much half of the menu was not available. Though offered alternatives we did not get them as described. Bummer. Service was nice, food ok but nothing specisl. Prices fair though. Location ideal to hit up Temple Bar.
Lovely food, big quantities! Only problem was that we couldn’t upgrade one of our free sides to the special sides. We had to order separately
The food was great, servers were lovely and served us in good time. I found it a bit pricey though.
