Lunch

Similar to PJ Obriens with the Irish theme. Very reasonably priced with a theme of pub style variety meals-we had a great steak...Choices of noisy or quiet areas but is an adult environment / not so much a place for young kids.

I drink here now and again, always a warm welcome! The pub lunches are great and a steal at around $10, great live entertainment and $3 beers on Thursdays and Sundays!

My 11 21 yo friends and I went to Waxys on a Sunday night on a holiday to Gold Coast and immediately fell in love. We had our next four dinners there and we had no ragrets. The food is extremely affordable and the quality is a gem for it's price considering the lack of good affordable food in Gold... More

Gave my partner food poisoning to the point where he was almost paralised from being so sick! Cockroachers crawling from the kitchen the staff where eating with their bare hands and then touching our food! CROSS CONTAMINATION! DO NOT GO HERE EVER!

We visited Waxys on three different occasions while visiting Surfers Paradise. Twice for drinks and once for the $2 steak on a Sunday. On all three occasions the staff were friendly and served us quickly, even on the Sunday when it was very busy. The food and drinks are good value for money, especially the steak and free sausage sizzle... More

Very busy spot, always has people hanging in th esmall outdoor area. If you are looking for an irish themed pub with ordinary pub food - this is exactly what you will get. They offer lots of cheap specials - and the food is as you would expect for the prices.

The food here is always great meal, I took three children with me. Two had the chicken schnitzel and one the bangers and mash. The chicken schnitzels look freshly made not the frozen things from the box, the bangers and mash was a pork sausage and a pleasant surprise. The kids loved it. I had an eye fillet with diane...
