Went for a lovely quick pint on saturday afternoon , food was superb also

Submitted by PB on 11th September 2011

Went the other night, great deal Â�£9.95 for 2 courses and a glass of wine/still or sparkling water. Usually with such deals places cut on portions, but everything was big and tasted really good. Would recommend.

Submitted by Chrissie on 25th February 2011

Decided against the overpriced Ballymac and ended up in the Glenowen instead. Brilliant deal on 2 courses! Recommend the Burger with onion rings and pepper sauce...yum!

Excellent staff!

An institution in the west with some of the older bar-men being the friendliest

Submitted by brianboru on 13th August 2009

a friendly and family orientated ambience. something for everbody, 18-80.... several bars.. function rooms, accessibility is great. have taken friends who have been in wheelchairs, and its perfectly accessible and manageable.. something which is rare in belfast restuarants nowadays..

This is my local restaurant and now one of my favourites. It has come along way from a time when the owners seemed to bask in the success of it's sister site the Ballymac and largely ignored the fact that the Glenowen was nose-diving into the ground, largely due it seemed to a lazy chef serving what friends described to me as "prison slop". Now though, a new open kitchen of young, energetic chefs are serving what is often a packed house. It doesn't pretend to be something it's not and that suits us locals fine. We don't want fussy waiting staff asking us every 5 minutes if we're OK, and yes it's busy - simply a fact of life when somewhere so small becomes so popular - of course if you go on a busy day like Mother's Day or New Year's Day you're mad!!! But for the odd Sunday or a weekday lunch, a better steak or salmon fillet I dare you to find elsewhere in West Belfast! If I was rich I'd eat there everyday!

Have been going to the Glenowen for years, and always enjoyed it, and loved going there for a meal, but recently I have been very disappointed in the food and service. Was there in January 2008 and I don't think I'll be back. Saying the Service was slow was an understatement. I received my steak (nothing else) ... had to eventually ask for the rest veg and chips - chips were cold, veg was hard, and the steak ended up was too cold to eat, cos I waited so long. Kids wanted to take me there for Mothers Day, but I told them NO! - anywhere but there! - Sorry Glenowen, I've been a punter for years, but now I'm looking elsewhere.

Had the chicken goujons and onion rings both of which were obviously processed and deep fryed. They were horrible and tasteless

Submitted by Patrick Green on 1st December 2006

After the recent refurbishment the premises not only look better but the service has also improved, I will definitley be back.
