Jude's Bar and Grill

Went for dinner with a group of friends on Saturday night - was lovely meal and good service (altho one of the mains arrived a bit later than the others). Food really good although limited choice for veggies. Had a drink downstairs after (the restaurant made sure we got a seat) and was very busy, even at 8.30. Decor has been really well done too.

cant help but feel that in this location, with the rakes of young profs living in the area that judes just doesnt hit the mark. i live just around the corner and would love to have a bar to rival the places in town on my doorstep, but im afarid judes aint it...why is upstairs always closed off on saturday nights? the place could do a bomb if the charged a few quid upstairs and had a decent dj??

Listen, it's just mad! I've been a visitor to these premisis since the days of the Mercuay, and the changes are, without doubt, immense. The Mercuary was without soul, feeling or warmth. OK, I get that. But a bar is all about the people. Judes has welcomed me as a single man on the pull, with a new-found partner, and as a committed person with children. Never once have I felt uncomfortable or been made to feel unwanted. Quite the opposite, they're more than friendly to ourselves and our children, and that's nothin but a good thing!!

Ate here on 30 December-food really poor.�£11 for sausage and mash which was overpriced and not as advertised.Partner had equally poor Chicken Curry in some vague tomato sauce concoction. Nice Bar but would not recommend eating here

this bar lacks character. It is nice to look at but as soon as you are seated you wonder what’s happening elsewhere- you feel you are missing out (and im not talking about the errigle) but it really needs something fresh and new to get a decent return crowd.

I wondered into Judes last Monday and have to say was so impressed with both the quality of the cocktails and the level of customer service. So often when asking for cocktails in many bars in Belfast the staff act like their world has just come to an end!

Not so in Judes! Thanks guys and keep up the good work!

This bar is definitely one of Belfast's best kept secrets!

Just had my daughter's christening upstairs in Jude's and I have to say as functions go, it is really very hard to beat, both the food and service were excellent!

Not the best! Not good at all. I think most of the positive reviews have been written by their marketing department. Although the cheap drink covers a multitude of sins!!!!

The Ormeau Road needed something pretty like this. Sometimes i love it and was wowed when it first arrived but sometimes I get bored and hop over to the Errigal!

Great Bar for food and drink. Kids free on a Sunday and they have the Friday Club with Â�£2pints and half price wine every friday. During the recession this is what the ounters need!

Called in for lunch as it was quiet and thought we'd be served quickly, unfortunately not. Staff where very friendly but it took 30 mins to get a soup and sandwich, the food was good but i'd be happier with a subway in 5mins, there was only one other table eating so i expected better. I might give them a second chance, but not during my lunch break.

i love judes, its stylish but not snooty, the staff are great and you wouldnt get a better meal anywhere on the road! sundays are great for food and the kids get to eat free!

Nice place if your looking somewhere to chill out. Doormen were dead-on, as were the staff.

went to Judes on 6/9/2008, was a good night. Food was good and atmosphere was ok, it would be better if you were able to dance. Bar staff were friendly, doormen friendly although one of them should invest in a razor and a smile wouldnt hurt.. I would go back

Lovely place wrong area! Trying to be something that clearly does not work on the ormeau rd.. Staff are ok food is standard. No sports?? you can have a bar and avoid spides and scum bags and show sports. Surprised this bar has not shut down yet with the amount of people that are NOT in it... Get it sorted..
