Nicely cooked piece of rump $2, fresh well dressed salad $2, tasty mushroom sauce $2. How can you go wrong? Best value on the GC.

We bought a plate of beer battered fish and chips and chicken schnitzel both with gravy, sauce, chips and salad for... More

Go to Waxys on any given Sunday as early as 4pm and expect to stand in line for your $2 steak and $3 budweiser. Very busy place but worth the wait - mixed crowd from uni students to 40+...anything goes at this pub. Only downside is that the service can be slow but thats nothing out of the ordinary in... More

If you are looking for a quick, cheap, yummy meal Waxy's Irish Pub $10 lunch menu is perfect. We had 1 hour for lunch and decided to order the Steak and the Grilled Snapper. Both were tasty with the fish being cooked perfectly with a delicious taste, a generous serving of chips and tartare sauce. Staff are all friendly and... More

We've been to Waxy's many times now and it's a must do for us while in Surfers. The traditional interior is homely and welcoming. The drinks are reasonably prices for GC and the counter meals are fantastic. I can highly recommend the lamb shanks and chicken schnitzel! They also have live bands and they've all be great. Fun, central location.... More

Went to Waxy's on two separate occasions while on our stay in Surfers Paradise and I must say I was not impressed! On both occasions we we're served by two different bar staff and both were extremely rude and stuck up. Having worked in hospitality for several years, I have rarely came across an establishment where more than one member... More

We were attracted to Waxy's because they offered steaks at $2. The steak was delicious far more tastier than other places that charge an arm and a leg. The wine and beer prices were moderate. The staff were friendly and efficient. The music was good too. This is a pub with pub food and drinks. The league of nations if... More
