I have lived in Skerries for over 3 years and heard a lot about the Red Bank. So when choosing a restaurant for our New Years dinner I was excited to book a table there. My first impression was being greeted by a friendly member of staff and seated in the 'lounge' where all the guests were offered a menu and drinks. Having ordered (from quite a confusing menu) we were shown to our table in the main dining room. The decor feels as if it hasn't changed since the late 70's but I remained optimistic about the food. The food arrived swiftly and looked at first glance rather nice. However, it quickly became apparent that not all was as it seemed. Many of the guests had ordered the Seafood Mix (what fish was in it was apparently a surprise) and it was clear to see that the fish had not been cooked from fresh. I had the sirloin steak which was touch and not well cooked. The steak was served with a cream sauce with red peppers and mushrooms which was an odd choice to go with steak and not very pleasant. The veg and side dishes were the same for all dishes and again felt reheated and stodgy. Overall, we were all let down by the meal and did not want to stay for more drinks or dessert. The final insult came in the form of the bill. For what we had (pre-cooked fish etc.) the bill was the final straw. We will not visit again.

had high hope after our host was planning a ladies night out for us and had always enjoyed her nights in this restaurant , I had never been to the Red bank before. I feel it is dated in 1990's décor. Full of awards on wall from yrs. passed. The food was grand and service ok for the price that was charged. Don't think ill be returning to this restaurant in the future. Lots more in Skerries to try out

Excellent service by the 2 waiters who were catering to every table's need. The food was as fresh as can be and the portions were filling. The head chef/owner I very friendly and comes out to every table to see how everything is going which you don't see much of this these days. I would definitely go back there again!!

The early bird menu is great value and there is a huge choice and variety of both starters and mains. There were some supplements but not many. Not only was it great value but the quality of the food was superb. For starters we had goats cheese salad and a black pudding sandwich. Then for mains we had haddock and pork....both were delicious and generous portions. I had a huge portion of tiramisu for dessert which I honestly didn't need as I was stuffed but I made a good attempt to eat it! Service was nicely paced ( courtesy of Mr McCoy himself). All in all a lovely evening and we hope to be back again soon.

With the excellent food and menu that the Red Bank have, they wouldn't have to go out of their way for customers. I am amazed at the level of customer service. We are by no means regulars unfortunately live too far away - but go on special occasions. Drive 15 miles to get to this restaurant past loads of others for good reason. Special thanks to Terry - outstanding. Wish we lived in Skerries!

Alas! I should have got the early bird! Ordered a starter which at €16 I thought was going to be hot and exciting. But it was cold meat and a few lettuce leaves. Totally way over priced. Ordered lobster, which tasted good but there was not enough of it. A small amount in the half shell. Went home disappointed and hungry. Will definately be back but not for A La Carte. Will stick to the early bird in future.

My husband and I visited hte Red Bank in Skerries with friends to avail of the "early bird" menu. This is a restaurant which caters to all tastes. Food was lovely and in the right quantities - I had the Anagassan smokies,m a aparticularly favourite of mine, and the beef stroiganoff. Desert for me was a mix of baklava and pavlova. Service as always was excellent, with the owner/chef taking the time to speak with the diners, and the "early bird" is very good value. My only quibble with the Red Bank is that I don't like the carpet in the dining room, but that's not enough to put me off a return visit.

I moves to Skerries 3 years ago and have long intended on visiting the Red Bank, as I'd heard so many good things about it. Tonight my girlfriend and I visited for the first time and it was simply glorious. The Early Bird 4 course menu (incl tea & coffee) is superb value, even when you factor in the 2 x €6 supplements for the fillet steaks we both went for. We also both had the same starter - the mussels. They were easily the most tender and succulent mussels I've ever tasted. They were a triumph. The sauce with the perfectly rare fillet steak was something special. As were the variety of veg & potatoes accompanying, albeit a small portion. The dessert trolley is a nice touch and the cheesecake was light and tasty. My girlfriend had the pavloava and quite enjoyed it. The chef, Terry, is attentive and appears frequently in the dining room. The decor is old fashioned but quaint. The waitress was very pleasant. I'm not a foodie but I know what I like and was moved to write this as it's not often I have such a fantastic dinig experience. I could not fault one element of our first experience in The Red Bank and we will most definitely be back.

We went for a Sunday evening early bird at 5pm. The place was fairly quiet, but it was an odd time to arrive. We got a warm reception and waiting in a sort of drawing room while we had a drink, read the menu and relaxed before dinner. We were brought through to the dining room, which is what would have been the main part of the old bank building in which the restaurant is based. The menu was generous in its choices and I had nettle, watercress and lettuce soup, followed by spicy haddock Louisiana. I’d never had nettle soup before and I enjoyed it. The spicy haddock was good too. For me the highlight was having a big proper 70s style desert trolley wheeled over. We all became much more interested when we saw what was on offer. I had some Greek style baklava and some chocolate cake. Three courses were €24 per person. The choice and quality was good and the service very attentive. The decor is old fashioned as is the place is quirky, but I found it charming and very enjoyable.

Was in the Red Bank for a family party 2 weeks ago. Wow!!! It is absolutely amazing. The restaurant is beautifully decorated, the food was gorgeous and the staff were exceptionally nice. Best restaurant on the north side without a doubt. We all had a fantastic evening and will definitely be back soon.

we ate here a few months ago and really enjoyed it, would return if the early bird menu changed as there is limited choices. i had the black pudding & apple starter and fish in creole spices, very nice, decent portions and i loved the old fashioned dessert trolley.would like more variety or seasonal early bird menu.

I visted here for a special occasion as I had heard such great reviews. I enjoyed the waiting room which you arrive in when you enter. I think that it gives an extra something to the dining experience. We decided to order from the value menu which is exceptional value from such a restaurant. The atmospher in was warm and friendly and the staff were excellent. The only point I would note is that the food is very heavy. I think that there is too much sauce on the main courses. This meant that we had no room for desert despite having paid for it (which disappointed us because the desert tray looked very tempting). A visit to our table by the owner was a nice touch and again, added a little something extra to our night. I would definately go back here, with a very empty stomach!!

I have been coming here for quite a while now and I always enjoy The Red bank's great food and great service. The staff here always provide a warm welcome. Tonight I had a celery soup, mushrooms oporto for starters and prawns Napoleon for my main. My dining companion had a black pudding starter and a chicken main. We then both chose delicious deserts from the famous desert trolley. It is great being able to view the trolley and choose exactly what you want. I must also say at this point that the prawns here are among the best I have ever tasted perfectly cooked. The atmosphere here was very good and the restaurant was practically full. We also had a visit to our table from the owner to check if everything was alright which for me is good p.r. The early bird menu offers excellent value for money. I would recommend the red bank for a visit you will not be disappointed. I look forward to my next visit here.
