They do a really good whisked sour here and there is a lot of fish on the menu. They seem to have specials that they change regularly. Everything was really good and the staff were helpful and good service. Very busy too.

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
