Food was average at best. Thai green curry was watery and bland. My husband asked for pint of IPA and was told they didn’t have any. However while paying the bill, there was a Franciscan Well tap with Chieftain IPA at the bar. Poor form....Also, as we waited to be seated we could clearly see the host scold the waitress through the window over something, highly unprofessional. Would be slow to return.More

We happened to come across Foley's while out for a stroll around Lismore. We didn't have a booking but the Maître D' made us feel really welcome and found us a lovely seat. Menu was great and food turned out to be superb. Would recommend...highly. Very friendly staff too. Lovely evening out and unplanned!More

We booked a table in the covered outdoor area which was nice. I had fish & chips, husband had steak. Both were just ok. We booked it because of the wonderful reviews we read, but it certainly did not live up to most of them...unfortunately. Wouldn’t be rushing back.More

On a camping holiday in Tipperary. While visiting The Vee in the Knockmealdown mountains, My daughter, wife & I said we would continue on to Lismore for a gander. On arrival we decided it would be a good time to have some food. So got...on Google machine and found Foleys. Rang them up, and got a table straight away. Food was amazing & fantastic value. Staff were so courteous and efficient. And it just felt like the place was being run like a finely tuned machine. Would highly recommend a visit to anyone. Top notch.More

Wonderful family lunch outside in a well covered garden area. The food was beautiful probably the best seafood chowder I’ve ever tasted. The carbonara was stunning too. Great service, wonderful portions and I would thoroughly recommend this place if you are in the area

Came to Foley's twice in July 21 and as always great food from the kitchen and great service from the waitresses. Very accommodating staff. Brought my family to lunch and the feedback I received was great so I can only pass this on to you...guys. Great menu, great drinks choice with wine, beer, non-alcho beer too on draught. Keep up the fantastic work, lucky I don't live far so will be back soon!More

We went in that restaurant for lunch. My husband took a creole burger: spicy chicken on a brioche bun and I took the open salmon sandwich. I preferred the chicken burger. The salmon was good but 2 toasts with 5 leaf salad as a main...course is not enough. I was expecting more salad. The food was good in general so we will come back anyway!More
