Great bar, good choices of beer

Just moved to Keene and went here to grab a beer (or two), read the paper and take in the Red Sox game. They were pretty busy and there was a band setting up for a later gig I didn't stay for. Nice big bar with lots of TV set to various sports and a good beer selection of both... read more

Good beer, good food, good prices. I stopped by every night while staying in Keene. I had the Irish Stew, Irish Nachos, 1/2 price pizza during Happy Hour and tried different beers on tap. Menu and beer selection was above average and service was very good.

Live entertainment on Friday night. Interesting menu with a nice variety from pizza to sandwiches to entrees, with an Irish touch!

This pub/restaurant offers a pleasant atmosphere inside and nice outdoor seating. I came here with some folks from work for lunch one day during the week. No one was outside so we had the "patio" to ourselves which worked out better for us. The food is really tasty and they offer a great beer selection. We ordered up appetizers such... More

Great atmosphere and outstanding food! The steak tips are fantastic and they have a great selection of beer. The entertainment on weekends is top notch! The staff is great, especially Mike & Jess.

Three others and I had dinner there and although it was not busy, we seemed to have to wait for quite a bit for service . The drinks were not as expected (and a little watered-down). The Shepard's pie was good but their chicken masala was extremely spicy and was sent back. Overall, it was just OK. I would not... More

Food portions are good sized, and priced well. Apps, several drinks, Guiness Beef Stew, Bangers and Mash, Waxy Burger with fries all came to under $100. Irish Pub atmosphere that also has live music on certain nights. Attached to Best Western Plus in Keene.

My wife and I stopped at Waxy O'Connors for lunch. It was the first time either of us had been to this restaurant. I had been wanting to try it for quite some time but only got around to going there today. I had a "Waxy" beef burger which was spectacular. It came with lettuce, tomato and an incredible sauce...

The food was good with very large portions at a reasonable price. The live music was ok. Older band that was having some feedback issues sound was muddled and hard to hear singer as the music over powered. However, they have a large dance floor. Lots of people were dancing and having a great time. The bartender was very good,... More

Great food, great bar, parties and music with a terrific dance floor. 5 of us ate for a little over $100 including tip and we were all full when we left and it included 6 beers! Fun place, food is average to good, good value.
