Ownies Bar & Bistro
Good food though nothing I'd rave about, perfectly pleasant. Fantastic service by attentive, friendly staff in the restaurant, bar staff did well to serve people in order given it was a busy friday night. Noise levels not too loud. Was a great place to meet friends and have a catch up.
Great atmosphere in bar...well furnished, warm and comfortable. Restaurant upstairs again well furnished, plenty of space between tables. We had the early bird menu...decent selection, great value, especially children`s menu.
Most impressed. Will go back again to try the menu proper.
Food excellent would recommend. Everyone was friendly.
Lovely food and service. Great family meal out to celebrate husband’s birthday
Brilliant love it, going on Monday night again 70th birthdays are great it’s never ending (eating) in the best place
Food and service excellent. Only fault was the air con was very poor. We were both sweating. Asked for a window to be opened but no joy.
Great . As always
Can personally recommend the steak sizzlers, I and my partner ate loads and still came home with enough leftovers for 2 more meals. Guinness pie also excellent value.
Gorgeous food and attentive waiters. We had a great night.
Had to wait around 90 mins or more for meal. Thought it was busy and would take a while but it was ridiculous. When I asked about the delay they discovered our order docket had been lost. Very disappointing as it was for a Birthday celebration.
Great food and service at a lovely venue with nearby parking.
Very impressed with everything.with it being Fathers Day I had expected to wait for food but waiting staff were excellent.i am disabled and all my needs were taken into consideration.I informed Ownies of my disability before arriving and I was seated at a very accessible table.
Staff excellent run off their feet Willy should be a national treasure thanks
Lovely supper, good service, excellent chowder! Lovely finish to a Relaxed Sunday!
Great food great service lovely staff. We eat here quite often and cant fault the food or service. It was bank holiday monday and we thought it wud prob b 2 busy. It was very busy but staff and food were great as usual so no complaints.
I would definetely recommend to a friend as everything was very good and I had champ which had plenty of scallions in it which normally doesnt happen
Was there on Easter Monday for dinner. The place was very busy with many large parties but the staff still managed to take great care of everyone. Our server, in particular, was excellent in also handling our initially fussy toddler, helping my sister feel welcome which can be a struggle sometimes for parents with little ones.
The food was delicious. I started with the salt and chili squid. It was beautifully seasoned and packed a bit of a kick at the end. My main was the signature seafood chowder. Having traveled around Ireland and eaten a boatload of fish/seafood chowder, Ownies is still my favorite by a mile.
Always a great time with wonderful, warm service and delicious food. I look forward to going each visit to my sister’s.
We love Ownies and the fish and chips is the best
Had a lovely meal but at time of booking did not anticipate having to sit in the bar for our meal. Any other time I’ve been to the restaurant so was a bit disappointing to find we had to sit downstairs. This was not a last minute booking and was not given any reason why we were not seated in the restaurant upstairs.
Sunday dinner first class as usual . Roast beef hard to beat only negative please put the door back on the gents toilets 😉
This restaurant never disappoints and ticks all the boxes required for a pleasant evening out with good food and service and is easily located
Ownies was excellent as it always is
Really love the food here, in my opinion it's a tad pricey, due to this I don't eat here to often. Would still recommend for a good meal.
Went for Sunday lunch with 3 friends. Service was excellent, staff very attentive. food did not disappoint, gorgeous with plenty of variety. Will be back.
The fish and chips is the best you can get !! Never ever lets you down
Food was outstanding, service was friendly, attentive and quick, very busy on Sunday night but that's a good sign for such a lovely place
Excellent evening with family will return soon staff couldn’t do enough and were extremely pleasant
Great place in carrickfergus for a meal either as couple or families. Staff very friendly. Very friendly pub. Owner always helping out.
Very enjoyable evening staff helpful and friendly. food tasty with generous portions lovely homemade desserts . Will visit again.
We were running a bit late for our reservation, but staff kindly put it back 15 minutes which was good. Our table was in the corner downstairs, so a bit “busy” and staff came and took our drinks order quickly and left menus for us, but didn’t leave a vegetarian option, so waited on that. Meals came after 15 or 20 mins or so, after ordering and a guest of ours found a hair in / on his meal, which after mentioning to the manager was resolved quickly and efficiently and to our satisfaction! All in our not too bad an evening and overall would recommend.
Had a very tasty meal which was also very good value for money. Staff were friendly and helpful.
Will definitely return.
Not very busy that night staff great and the mussels are to die for . Do wish they would do a another sauce option with them -garlic.
Had a very pleasant evening - good choice of food, pleasant and attentive staff, delicious meal.
Pleasantly surprised with the food here. My husband ordered the chowder from the main menu and I opted for the special of monkfish. Both of us really enjoyed the food. Service was good and quick. Will definitely be visiting again
Great food with fantastic service. Great selection of gluten free options. Will diffently be back.
service is always excellent - great staff - good atmosphere
Food as always of a very high standard. Have eaten here many times and have always had great food and service.
Booking online was easy and very convenient.
Meal was beautiful & the service was fantastic! We will definitely be back!
My partner and I visit here quite often as it’s local, and we know that we’ll enjoy the meal and the service. The menu caters to all tastes and I would highly recommend the venue to anyone.
Everything was great, service staff and food, no hanging around food perfectly served looked amazing
