Good atmosphere and great people watching spot

Staff behind the bar were friendly and had some good tips on where to go and what to see. The live music on a Saturday afternoon certainly helped us to wind down after a lovely day. Atmosphere is not your typical Irish pub stuff, not overdone, cool dark and relaxing. People watching from the... read more

$4 for a steak and chips is excellent value, can't fault the food at that price. Not really much else to say about the place

We came here for a family dinner and decided to try the $10 Irish Dinner special. It turns out that these meals are entrée sized and the kids meals were actually bigger!! We saw other meals being presented to other tables that looked great so perhaps stick to the cheap deals for lunch! Other than that the staff were friendly... More

Best value for drinks and food. Pints of Guinness cost $7.50 and pots of Heineken cost $4.00. Wines by the glass cost no more than $8.00 for really good quality reds. Some of the wines listed were not in stock which was annoying. House whites and Reds were horrible. Wait staff were great. You can get a good pub meal... More

We loved this place. We went to the $2 steak night and were expected a tiny peice of steak hidden beneath a mountain of gravy, we would happily surprised. The steaks were more than enough and although you pay extra for everything else on your plate it still was very affordable and nice. Good music and a happy environment

After checking in we wander out to get some lunch and walked past Waxy's and they had $9.95 rump steaks... So the steaks were cooked to perfection, the fries were crunchy on the outside and soft inside and the salad was very tasty. For $10 I would recommend anyone who likes their steaks to visit. Beers were cold and a... More

Came in for $2 steaks, were small but nice, had to pay extra for chips, salad and sauce ($2 each) but it was still pretty decent. Bars pretty expensive but drink service is fast.

Cold, rainy day at Surfers Paradise, but a visit to Waxy ' s brightened our day somewhat. It was heated which was a bonus on such a miserable day. The lunchtime specials for $10 was what attracted us. We ordered the rump steak and my favourite chicken schnitzel with thick cut chips and salad. Great atmosphere, historic curios to browse,...
