    Usually good but on this visit it was disappointing! The waiting staff were not great disinterested and reaching over food for empty glasses without asking etc, but did finished with very nice waitress so all good there maybe just some new floor staff finding their feet! Foodwise though it had definitely slipped! Chicken supreme was horrid clearly left under a hot lamp too long as it was bone dry. A plain dry chicken breast sitting on a dry risotto with pine nuts scattered on it. The heat lap had left a skin on top of the risotto and visually just looked like bad canteen food...avoid this dish! The Carolina Chicken burger was very over priced for a breaded chicken on a bun again dry with very little dressing teaspoon of dressing at best. I have had it a few times but this one lacked its usual flavour a kin to a supervalu southern fried chicken breast on a dry bun! Again had the flavour of something cooked and left under a hot lamp far too long. Besides the wings the food was usually poor on this visit. Hopefully just a once off! but worth flagging it here.

    Enjoyed the background music . Staff were working hard on a busy night . To much red pepper sauce on the prawns with linguine, prawns were delicious . Sea bass could do with another vegetable instead of just all potatoes . Sea bass portion was small but tasty.

    The service and food were excellent and care was taken to ensure our booking matched for reduced mobility. We were celebrating a birthday. One of the party is coeliac and we were pleased with the rage of GF food and the attention of the serving staff. However, I brought along a GF birthday cake to have with our coffees. I was advised at this stage that there would be a cake charge. The charge on the bill was 18 Euro! I will probably be back but my coeliac friend will not.

    Not as good as previous visits!! Server was polite but no real interest. Asked for water and just one glass given. Ordered the chicken burger as a salad bowl and it was €2 extra?!! No burger bun just the contents of the burger just put on a bed of salad leaves nothing extra and this cost €2 more!! A real gimmick!! Toilets could do with some care!! Empty toilet roll holders and toilet rolls left on the floor or on top of sanitary bins!! Had expected a lot better!!!

    Table booked for 4 went in a lovely friendly young waitress met us to let us know she was getting our table ready. No problem. An older lady who was front of house pulled the young girl aside started giving out to her for assisting us and not informing her we'd arrived!! It was extremely unprofessional and so unnecessary and very embarrassing for the young girl. She then waited on us and was fantastic at her job. Food wasn't great!! Wings where disappointing! Very overpriced place.

    Blue bar chicken wings are my death row meal, they’re the nicest in Dublin by far and well worth the trip out to Skerries! I’ve been here many times over the years and the food is always 5 star quality with really friendly staff. Thanks for a lovely dinner, we’ll be back again soon

    Food was good, not great. Ribeye steak was ok, certainly not worth the price listed. There are places in Dublin you'd pay less and get a far better quality steak. Service was quite patchy, always left waiting for a drink considering the amount of staff on. Staff were lovely all the same. Far too pricey a place though for what you get compared to actual restaurants. This is a pub that serves food, with restaurant prices. Wouldn't be rushing back.
