“Great food and lovely old shoppe”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 27, 2014

There are so many interesting places to sit, so many things to look at and read and I love the dedication to past customers on tables or seats. It is a great location too and well the food speaks for itself. Yum!!!

“Nice local bar”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 23, 2014

Were directed here by our B & B owner for a nice casual, local place. Very good fish and chips and local Waterford beer. Good, reasonably priced choice.

“Wonderful!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 11, 2014

My husband and I made a day trip down to Waterford while staying in Dublin on our honeymoon. After doing the tour of the crystal factory, we were starving but unsure of where to go. We asked one of the ladies at the House of Waterford reception desk before we left, and she recommended Geoff's. So glad that she did!! When we walked in, we were unsure of the proper protocol--should we wait to be seated, seat ourselves, go to the bar and order, wait for a server--we had no clue. So, we wandered through the majority of the pub (it's a big place!) until we found an empty table and sat down. Not wanting to annoy the bartenders unnecessarily, we decided to wait a few minutes and see if anyone came to our table. Soon after, an incredibly nice man (we discovered later he was one of the bartenders) came over. He said he'd seen us wandering around, and since we looked lost, he wanted to see if we needed something. He proceeded to take care of us for the rest of the time we were there--getting both our food and drinks and frequently checking on us. We noticed as we sat there that others were going to the bar to get their own drinks, so I'm pretty sure he was trying to help out the confused tourists by coming to our table for everything. We thanked and tipped him on the way out, but I really hope he somehow sees this review to know just how appreciative we were. Not only was he unbelievably helpful, but he didn't make us feel silly for not knowing what to do. On top of all that, the food was excellent--and that's coming from two finicky eaters!! This was just a wonderful place from top to bottom! I'd highly recommend it to anyone looking for a meal or just a place to have a drink in Waterford!!

“Tasty”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 7, 2014

Love Geoffs for the food, drink and craic. Has everything from tasty panini's to gigantic burgers and amazing homemade chips!

Only problem nowadays is the smell. Especially in the afternoon/evening time. The cleaning agent they use in the kitchen would put you right off your food. This has been fed back to management numerous times but they don't seem to care.

The smell is so overpowering it can completely ruin your stay in Geoffs. Which is a pity given the tasty food and drink. The food is reasonably priced but the cost of an alcoholic beverage is off the charts. Geoffs has the to be the most expensive pub/bar in the city for a pint beating even hotels.

“Beware of Conversion Charge”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 24, 2014

Visited on a Monday night in March. Was perfect ambience for a party of 7 to visit and have a nice dinner. Excellent beer selection and decent service until the end. The barmaid decided to convert the quite healthy bill to US dollars without asking (which means 3.5% conversion fee.) Be sure to ALWAYS mention you wish to have the charge in Euros. We had a very lovely evening until this point so disappointing when you are mistreated. And then to be told there is nothing we can do. Unfortunate. To outsiders please be careful.
