The service people were terrific, the atmosphere is definitely English pub and they have good food and drink specials, The food was cooked properly but it wasn't the best I've ever had. The band that came in on a snowy night was very tight and had a good time. I will return.

My three boys and myself ate at this restaurant twice while staying at the attached hotel. The food is very good - my boys loved the mac and cheese. Burgers are huge and the steak was very tasty. Service was prompt and friendly. I would recommend this restaurant.

My wife and I had dinner at Waxy O'Connor's last Saturday night, the service and the food met our expectations - I certainly would recommend this restaurant and would stop by again the next time we are in the area.

I went with a few of my friends and ordered the chicken wings. After eating a few I realized there were full on feathers on my chicken. After telling the waitress she refused to accept that they were feathers until I had to pull out my flashlight. The sheapards pie was delicious and the magners on tap was delightful but... More

Nice atmosphere, friendly bartender and waitress, good background Irish music. However, inflated prices and mediocre (at best) food puts this on our do not go back list. Two of us had the worst Reuben sandwiches we ever had. One of us had a prime rib/au jus sandwich that was very dry. One of us had chicken tenders that were good.

We like Waxy's for the Irish Style Pub Food. Usually busy place, especially week-ends and noisy. Wouldn't list as best food in Keene but the burgers are great and there are lots of available beers for the thirsty.

Food was OK, servings fair, service fair. The first night was a lot better then the second. Had a big beer list but were out of a lot. If we had gone only the first night it would have been good food, good service, large servings and friendly but still problems with beer being out. Prices are a little high.

I arrived at the adjoining hotel and was excited to see a nice restaurant attached. After checking in I took a quick nap and headed down to waxy's. The host sat my friend and I and the waitress came over to get our drink orders. After we got a drink we ordered soup. After we ordered that soup it took... More

Food was average. Prices high for quality. Loaded fries were excellent. Prime rib sandwich was bland and the bread it was on was so hard I couldn't eat it. I couldn't even eat the au jus. Even salt couldn't give it flavor. Onion rings were edible.
