Visited with family on a Wednesday evening. Dark inside like you would expect from a pub but we received a great welcome and got excellent service. Food was pretty good. Kids and adults had a good meal. Would recommend.

Revolution is a really nice bar with lots of interesting decor and furnishings and a great drinks list. Good music when we were there too. Definitely worth a visit if you are in Waterford

This was by far our favorite pub in Ireland! Old world pub modernized! Excellent selections of whiskey, craft beers, burgers, and pizza! Bartender was excellent, she was the main reason we returned multiple times! My favorite was Legacy Cider, made right in Waterford! Definitely try Revolution, you will not be disappointed!

I really recommend this place for a drink if you choose to visit Waterford. The selection of whiskeys is great and so is the overall atmosphere of the place. The location is also very good, just a few minutes walk away from the centre of Waterford that is just down the street! What I love about this place is that... More

Was looking for a craft beer place on my first trip to Ireland, and it didn't disappoint. Great food, wonderful staff, interesting shots and cocktails, and of course a good whiskey selection.

My wife fell in love with the decor of the eclectic antique furnished pub. The bartender David Giles was very entertaining and more that helpful in picking out craft beers and drinks for two Americans. Greatly suggest stopping in for a pint or two at this establishment if you are ever in Waterford.

We didn't intend to eat here as our 1st choice wasn't doing food as it was easter sunday. We ordered chicken wings to start (spicy).

I don't think they understand the meaning of the word 'fresh' goujons of chicken noting more than a silther of rank chicken covered in a mountain of breadcrumb. Friend got a fresh homemade burger haha biggest joke ever most deffo from a box that was bought in. Will not be back.
