This is by far the best bar in Waterford. It's rustic and very casual. Food is great. Service is always great. So popular you might find it hard to get a table ! Love going here for dinner and drinks.

I had dinner here with a friend. There were two nice looking veggie options which suited me as a vegetarian. I ordered the bean Burger, it was very nice. My friend had calamari. The owner was friendly. Its a nice venue with lots of seating.
