Ate here on Sat night were quickly seated at our table by a pleasant young man .Service was on the slow side and the menu knowledge from the waiters could have been better . Starters were Moroccan spiced lamb skewer with tomato & courgette served with coriander marinated creme fraiche & homemade chutney ,Italian Meatball HOT POT in a spicy Tomato ragout,Sautéed wild mushroom & Pecorino cheese stuffed potato skin. The meatballs were average both the others were really good. Mains were Sea Trout Greek style on risotto, Roast duck and two went for turbot from the nightly specials . All the mains were delicious and the duck was massive but cooked nice and crispy on the outside but still moist inside . All in all a lovely night will be back to try the midweek tapas menu which looked lovely

Stopped here en route to from Tralee to Dingle. We had a selection of tapas for our our party of three. The food was pretty good and great value. I opted for a dela which consisted of a bowl of delicious beefand mushroom stew with an accompanying plate of fired potato cubes witha cream garlic dressing and a glass of red wine - all for €15

Enjoyed a fantastic meal at the Station House. The menu was very varied and it was tough to make a decision but I was thoroughly impressed with the fish options. The food was beautifully prepared, service was excellent. I would definitely return and highly recommend.

This place never fails to live up to our expectations. Arrived with 8 children in tow last Wednesday evening with no prior booking. There was no table immediately so I did suggest that they might prefer to put us in the restaurant section (so as not to disturb other diners) but they came up with a solution within a minute. All of were seated quickly. Menus were a bit slow in comig down but once the orders were taken all was well. Hats off to the waitress who suggested Miwadi for the children. All 3 adults had a drink and a burger while the children ate more than their fill from the childrens menu. Total bill was €95.05. You can't beat that!

We celebrated a special event here and were seriously impressed with the place. It is wickedly busy so there was a small wait for our table and it is a very warm place, so you can feel a little uncomfortable, but our waitress was super friendly and the food itself was really excellent. We had surf/turf, which was beautifully cooked and presented and also Plaice which was delicately flavoured. The deserts were good too. The music could be better, especially when a band started playing later in the night which seemed totally at odds with the setting and the ambience. The wine, an Italian Terra Firma was lovely and reasonable at 22 Euro. Overall, the bill was on the pricey side, so its a place for special occassions more than a regular feed. But it is well worth a visit, if like us you are in Tralee for a short stay.

went out of my way to eat here after hearing good things. was very very disappointed.server lacked any personality and was fairly abrupt in their style of service which got meal off to bad start. simple requests were ignored or declined. food wasn't that great either considering the price. skewer of kerry lamb and chorizo was let down by chewy sometime fatty lamb. special of hake came basted in salty basil rub which took over the fish. also several bones found in both hake dishes which is shoddy for a restaurant naming fish as a specialty. dessert of bread and butter was very over cooked and dryed out and just wasnt worth eating. on plus side the large chunky chips were nice and room is nice. wouldn't bother eating here again

A very memorable experience. If Im ever in the vicinity again would definitely return. The staff friendly. The atmosphere warm. But most of all the food exquisite both in flavour and presentation. The menu was so appealing it took me a while to chose from the culinary delights. Had a starter of pigeon breast with pate and tuilles. Absolutely beautiful. Tender Belly of pork with a crispy flavorsome crackling..to die for! Very impressed!

I visited The Station House Bar and Grill last week while we were on a break around St. Partick's Day. I had heard and read many reviews and was very keen to try it. I have to say it completely lived up to all the hype. The service was prompt and friendly without being over powering. The atmosphere was very cosy in the bar area where we sat by the fire, although I did have a look in the restaurant which also looked excellent. The menu, or rather menus we were presented with gave a great choice and excellent value for money. There was an early bird menu, an excellent tapas menu and their a la carte menu. I ordered from the tapas menu and had an array of small portions to nibble from. My partner ordered from the early bird which had plenty of choice but was also great value. When the food came to our table it looked fantastic and tasted even better. Overall, I would highly recommend The Station House Bar and Grill and will certainly be revisiting soon. Service, ambience, food were all fabulous.

Although the food is excellent and different, there could be a bigger choice of dishes on the menu. All the staff are very friendly and the layout of the restaurant/bar is a mix between old world and funky which is very cool.
