“Lovely lunch!!”
Review of The Salty Dog

We stopped in here on Friday to get some lunch after spending a few days in Balbriggan for some R&R after a busy Christmas and New Year. We had a Living Social voucher for 2 steaks with sides for €25. We decided to have a starter of their chicken wings with signature barbecue sauce, I must say it wasn't like any barbecue sauce I had ever tasted before but was strangely addictive!! The steaks were served with a bucket of fries, onion rings, sautéed mushrooms and peppered sauce or garlic butter. The steaks were cooked perfectly (rare) and my only criticism would be the herbs that seem to have been added to everything!! My husband and myself are not fans of herbs but they were added to the onion rings, over the steak and a large dollop of pesto on the plate, other than that, lovely food, and more importantly, good Guinness!!!

Some dislike but what I like is it’s quirkiness and the guest beers that other pubs in the area do not offer. Thankyou.

Not wanting to walk far and very hungry the Salty Dog looked OK. Seated near to an open fire and after advice on the menu we ordered the steak special and wine. It was all very good. The only down side was the lack of many other customers but we were early for dinner.

Great spot for a party. You can have the whole of the end of the pub for your group plus the smoking area . They have an excellent chef who does great party snacks. Service at the bar is friendly and efficient.

Was looking for a family friendly place in Skerries, that could accommodate a buggy, without having to climb steps or move seats to get a buggy in and The Salty Dog was a blessing.

Had a delicious lunch here on a quiet Monday afternoon. Staff were friendly and it didn't take long before the food arrived. Ordered a pizza and a portion of chips. As you will see for youself, via the attached photos, the pizza was fab and the chips delicious with a hint of spice. Plus they arrived in a "bucket" - very cool.

By the looks of things they have a good selection of craft beers. While we didn't venture outside, it looked like a cool outdoor area and even had a "heated seat". The pub is decorated fanatically with lots of ornaments above the door. The walls are covered in pictures, mirrors and sayings.

On a negative, the bathroom need lots of attention.

Overall very enjoyable experience. Will most definitely be back.
