“Shocking attitude from bar staff. Waitresses however, excellent.”
Review of Fowler's

Fowler's
Ranked #40 of 55 Restaurants in Malahide
Restaurant details
Reviewed 20 June 2014

Food is decent. The bar itself is lovely. However, the bar staff are unresponsive and often rude. I frequent here every few weeks and have become tired of the attitude received. The lounge staff are the saving grace; they are pleasant, quick and charming. It seems the bar staff feel above the others. They're slow, chatty among themselves, and once mopped around our parties' feet with eye burning bleach while the door staff roared for our exit. It's better than Gibneys, but since it's renewal, it appears to be losing focus. Very dissapointing in recent visits.

A group of us went tot get dinner here on Paddy's day. We got a seat easy enough but had to go upstairs where the atmosphere was a bit dead. The waitresses were quick to take our orders. There was a delay with that day that was in it. We shared chicken wings which were nice. Our main courses were not great. I ate a caesar salad. Nothing wow about it. Other people in the group had fish and chips and they said it wasn't great. I Understand that with the day that was in it, that the staff were busy but it doesn't mean that the food has to be average.

Had Christmas drinks in Fowler's this year. No problem getting a table for 4, even though the place was pretty busy when we arrived at about 8.30pm on the weekend before Christmas.

Although I live locally, this is the first time I've visited since the place was done up under its new ownership (formerly known as Smyth's). It has been transformed successfully into a popular, modern pub with a good atmosphere - no intrusive, noisy background music, so you can hear yourself talking, even when it's quite full. And the service to the tables was good too.

I'd have no hesitation in recommending it for any social gathering.
