In our search for the perfect local pub when we moved here, we quickly came across Geoff's. Everyone seems to love it and it's always busy. My husband raves about the burgers.

Drank here in the 1980s and this was my first time back. The interior of the place has not changed and still has the same great atmosphere about it. I had smoked chicken pasta with panini garlic bread which I will go back for more -I just wont stay away so long next time.

Geoff's Bar is an institution in Waterford and must be most people's idea of what a warm, friendly Irish pub should look like. It exudes oodles of character as they have not try to modernise it down through the years so the Geoff's that you see today looks largely like it did 40 or 50 years ago — albeit much... More

We picked Geoff's from our hotel guide for a weekend dinner. This could be a very good place for drinks and grub for a group after work, groups of friends meeting in a relaxed place. We felt sort of out of it being an older couple by ourselves; we should have tried to be adopted by another couple or group... More

We walked around the triangle area and tried to get a table at a number of places ( make reservations if it is Saturday ). This place was like " you see a place to sit, take it!" We shared a table big enough for eight. Had a fun time trying to talk with the local people but it was... More

Being from Waterford I think this is one the best places to eat in Waterford. A great pub in it's own right. The food is as good as any restaurant without the fuss and far more freedom. It grows a bit every couple of years with changing the feel. Tell Willie the bar man I sent you.

There's something about geoffs ... Longstanding Waterford pub ... Very relaxed atmosphere ... Decent pub grub .. Smoking area out the back which doesn't permeate into the bar ... . This bar attracts All ages, professions creeds ... Etc .. A real medley . You're as likely to meet an 18 year old student as a retiree ..All enjoying themselves... More

Most shops and restaurants were closed because of a holiday. We came in at 7:45 pm and had 15 minutes before the kitchen closed, but with the bank holiday I'm not sure if that has anything to do with the timing. Chairs were low and a bit wobbly but despite the dim pub atmosphere the food was worth it. Burger... More

Believe it or not, this Pub had the best meal we had in the whole of Ireland! The service was exceptional, and the food was stunning. I had Chicken Curry that was better than what I have had in London, or Bangalore India. My wife had fresh salmon, with mash and it was cooked to perfection.
