Just a unique place to eat... Decor & layout is really neat. Food is good; staff are just ok but it's worth it to go just for a different setting!

Waxy's advertises itself with 'whatever your function, whether birthday party, office celebration or leaving do you're guaranteed to enjoy the craic'. What they should have after that is 'unless you have a t shirt on with Hen Do written on the front of it cause then don't even bother coming in as we will refuse to serve you and ask... More

Always a friendly welcome from staff, and always helpful. Nice choice of red wines and never been disappointed yet A small but nice seating area outside the front door and it is really great for people-watching on a nice evening. I didn't eat on this visit but have done so in the past and have never experienced a bad meal.... More

My friends and I popped into Waxy's for some dinner. They ordered haggis and a burger while I opted for the steak & Guinness pie. It was busy due to the Commonwealth Games, but I still think half an hour waiting on food from a limited menu is a little too long. Regardless, two meals arrived and I told my... More

I used to love the Irish Stew served here but lately the quality of that dish has really gone downhill. this is a shame because I normally rate this place quite highly, so perhaps this was a one off. I found the dish to be bland and tasteless with hard vegetables. The place is a maze so plan in advance... More

My family and I were in Glasgow to meet up with two friends who're leaving to go to England soon. Lots of us were going to congregate at Waxy O'Connor's to spend the evening together. However, when we arrived at the door, my daughter's way was barred! Now, my daughter is 25 years old. She's also tiny and has a... More

I can imagine if you had a few it getting a bit mixed up, as I said lots of... More

We somewhat meanly took advantage of both Tesco vouchers and a Taste Card. Pub is set out over several levels and is traditional Irish in style. Good food, good beer reasonably priced, and not too busy despite its city centre location.
