We tried here early on Saturday night.... my wife, two kids and I. When we asked for a table they asked if we had one booked. We said no and when the manager saw the buggy and two kids she said they were fully booked....even though the place was empty! This carry on sickens me.....they were still half empty a good while later when we passed by that evening.

Hmm, did we eat here on a bad day?! The fish was disgusting - like mush - not cod, but ? The chips tasted like they came frozen, out of the bag, into the fryer. Compared to other fish and chips we had in Ireland - these were the worst!

My wife does not eat fish so she had chicken with an (inedible, brown mushroom) sauce. Her chicken was still raw.

At least, the staff was friendly and good.

I DO NOT RECOMMEND THIS RESTAURANT TO ANYONE.

We had the Sea Bass and the Fisherman's Pie. This place was a wonderful stop...very relaxing with great service and delicious food offerings! We would definitely recommend this lovely restaurant if you're strolling around Dingle Town.

We stopped in this restaurant in the afternoon for a quick lunch. The atmosphere was very relaxing and the service was excellent. I was very happy with my fish dish!
We've met some friends there. They weren't very happy with their dishes. I suppose it depends on what you order. It went very well for me and my partner.

On our 5 night visit to Dingle we ate here 3 times. Lovely location across from Dingle Harbour. The Boat Yard is bright and airy and in nice weather its nice to sit out on the deck. Its a very popular spot and was always busy. I had really wanted to try the scallops but they had run out so I had the fish cakes and they were excellent. 2 large cakes with mild local fish....excellent. We also had the lamb stew and a wonderful salad with baked local goat cheese and both were amazing. Great food, great view and wonderful attentive staff. Highly recommended!!
