Abstract: The study explored the influence of service quality dimensions on customer satisfaction in the Nigerian banking industry. A collection of four hundred (400) customers of sixteen Deposit Money Banks (DMBs) quoted in the Nigerian Stock Exchange (NSE) that operates in Benin City, Edo State, Nigeria were given questionnaires for the study, out of which three hundred and sixty seven (367) were found fit in testing the formulated hypotheses. Data collected through questionnaires administration were analyzed using descriptive and inferential statistical instruments. Findings from the study show that service quality tangibility and reliability are statistically insignificant with customer satisfaction within the quoted DMBs in Nigeria. The study recommends that management of DMBs should enhance the appearance of staff, communication materials, physical facilities and equipment among others. Also, banks management and staff should provide adequate procedures to perform their promise service dependably and accurately.
