the food was absolutely wonderful and kevin, our server quite the character. It was good to find a restaurant serving a main meal at 1:00 which is not in a hotel

Unknown to many there is a nice area at the back of this restaurant also. We were upstairs. The food was average for the price. The seating was a bit tight also and not very relaxing. Staff were friendly.

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
