We were told by the staff at our hotel that Geoff's was a must for a good meal. The staff there was very friendly and the whole pub felt like everyone knew each other, so it was very inviting. The food was great! I had the chowder and it was so delicious. This is definitely a great place to grab... More

Great food and beer in traditional surroundings. The staff were very friendly and helpful. We were so impressed that we eat here twice during stay in Waterford. A group of four we consumed several different dishes all of which were thoroughly enjoyed. Try the shoestring fries!

Was the liveliest place on our night so we called in. Funky old school layout with cool chess board tables good music. But the night was ruined when the staff tackled an elderly man out the door without having asked him to leave. He ended up on the road outside and was then dumped by the staff on the path... More

A group of us went to Geoff's for food and drinks last night. Although it was awkward not to have table service (we had to order and pay for food at the bar) the food was delicious (recommend the chowder) and the atmosphere was great. It made all the difference that we could sit in the beer garden. Busy entertaining... More

Unusual decor, quite dark when you first enter. Good food served by friendly staff at reasonable prices. Good place to meet colleagues for lunch.

Geoff's Bar is meanwhile somewhat of an institution in Waterford City. The old-fashioned interior is attractive and gives a warm feeling, the staff is friendly and helpful, and both food and drinks are very good. Geoff's is one of the few places that serve the real 'Pilsener Urquell' on tap, and recently they have also added a number of local... More
