Good food. We used the value menu on the night we were here €20.00 for a two course meal. Good choice of food to suit everyone. The only down was felt we were squeezed into the section. Good night. Enjoyable.

The service was very good. The employees were courteous and prompt. The food was amazing. The chef should be given a pat on the back for the quality of food he prepares.

I actually ate here on my birthday after a long, stressful day. It wasn't a bad experience but just mediocre. The vegetable soup was good as was the sticky toffee pudding but my steak wasn't. It was overcooked, tough and didn't have great flavor.

This restaurant is great! They have a fantastic ‘Value Menu’ at €20 for two courses and these options are some of the same from the A la Carte menu. Food is excellent and great staff and I would definately recommend a visit!

McLearys has only been around since 2011 when they opened on High Street. The Wine Vault was there before them and that opened in the late 80's I think. Before that, "proper" restaurants were few and far between in Waterford
