Really enjoyed my visit to the Blue Bar. Waiting staff was phenomenal, attentive but never felt they were bothering us. Atmosphere was very pleasant. The only issue was the rice with he Thai curry wasn't sticky enough but overall the meal was fantastic. The salt & chilli squid was simply delicious. Would definitely go again.

I had a booking in Bkue Bar on Saturday for my daughters 22st. On arriving in the door the lady at the desk I would presume was the manager as she was an older lady spoke to a young girl one of the waitresses in what I would call an absolutely atrocious tone it sounded just dreadful and was very off putting. Again when seated at our table I heard the same lady speaking to another waitress in again the same rude obnoxious tone. I found everything else to be fab the waitresses couldn't have been more attentive the food was fab and I loved the restaurant. Not sure if I'd go back as I really didn't like the treatment of the staff

We came for the wings, but on this occasion they were soggy and not as good as previous visits. Ordered the seafood platter also and it was only ok. We could have lived with our mediocre mains, But we were really really disappointed in the desserts. Pavlova came with tinned mandarin despite being advertised on menu as coming with seasonal fruit. Brownie was dry and bland. Ice cream was from a machine. We couldn’t believe it. Wait staff never asked how we were getting on with meal, but I told woman at door on way out that the dessert had been extremely poor and all she said was she would pass it onto chef! We won’t be making the trek back to Skerries. Standard has slipped

Visited during our day trip to Skerries. Had to try the wings. They were tasty but had a strong red bell pepper taste. Loved the choice of beers and the prosecco on tap. Great service...very fast as well.

Food and service great as usual. Great being able to book the table online even at v.short notice. Dissapointed no pavalova left for dessert but the toffee crisp cheesecake made up for that even got a sparkler and happy birthday sung to me.
Would have loved to sit outside but the Irish weather didnt want to co-operate,rain,sun then hail stones! Defo be back again and maybe try the sister restaurant.

I have been to blue bar on a couple of occasions, the food seems to be slightly on the decline, I usually have the sea food chowder to start however on this occasion the fish did not seem as fresh as the pervious times I have had it, I ordered the burger for main and would have preferred chunky chips however the waitress advised I could only have skinny chips, my mam ordered the fish and chips and she received chunky chips, my mother in law had the duck, she only ate a small amount as she stated it was very dry, the bill then came to €175.00 which I felt was slightly high considering the quality of the food did not seem to be up to the high standards we experienced on previous occasions.

From the moment we entered to the moment we left our experience was outstanding. This was a first time experience for most of us but certainly not our last. We traveled nearly 60klm and we would do it again and will do it again. Couldn’t recommend highly enough!!

Another good experience in Blue. The staff were very attentive but not over the top either. The food was very nice and the atmosphere was lovely. My only complaint is that we booked a booth and when we arrived we were given a table at the front of the restaurant. We had to ask to be moved. This has happened the last three times we have booked and is becoming a bit annoying now! Overall though our party of eight enjoyed the evening.
