My mother and aunt and myself arrived for lunch today and were made feel very unwelcome,they asked could they move seats as there was a table of 4 kids screaming beside them they were told no,no seats free.although there was plenty!after they ordered coffee and after it was brought to them another waitress brought 2 more but gave out to them asking why they ordered twice-even tho they didn't!the only pleasant girl was the girl who took the money at the till!they ordered 2 'BLT's' and was made even more unpleasant by the unhappy waitress!both locals of skerries-very unpleasant and disappointing experience!

Was here on a Monday and the place was packed. Good sign however the staff attending us were terrible. Slow and some what confused at times....
Ordered wings which were gorgeous. One of us got steak and they said it was "fine" Three got burgers which they all thought were nice. I got a salad burger as I'm watching the waistline and the salad was some mixed lettuce leaves. Very disappointing. On top of this it came with chips which seemed pointless to me. Anyway would I go back? Yes for the wings and the view but the rest was just alright

This reminded my of Applebies and The Outback strak house from the States due to its styling. There is a huge centeral bar surrounded but large booths. The food standard was excellent and the service was again what I expect in the States. This is all a good thing folks.
Great food, great atmosphere and service with a smile. What more do you want. Heartilly recommended

We usually go the Blue Bar with friends of ours. A few times we went we got a cold reception from staff, one time my friend rang and tried to book a table. They told him you cant book a table, first in first served, which was fair enough. Then when we arrived, the waitress asked had we a reservation?? like really?? anyhow, she said she could get us a table in a half an hour, which we waited and got one.

Myself and my girlfriend were out there today, just the two of us, we decided to go to the Blue Bar. It was relatively quite, a good few seats. As we went in, two other people came in behind us. As the waitress approached us, she went to grab 4 menus, when my girlfriend told her a table for two please. She then said they are too busy and had no tables free!! There was at least 5 or 6 tables free! it was half empty. She made no effort to facilitate us at all. I even heard another waitress tell the girl dealing with us that the table at the end, the people are going now! But yet she insisted no table, and had no idea how long it would take for a table to become free!!

Got the impression it was either they didnt want us because it was only two people, or then because we werent LOCALS.

I will never give my custom to the Blue Bar again!!! In the current market, if they carry on like that for too long, they will soon realise there mistakes
