This is the go to gathering place for Keene's "Grown Ups". The food is consistent and the selection of beers is good. The wait staff is friendly and treated our family very well. Our three year old had a great time people watching and enjoyed the live music. If you are looking for a solid Irish Pub be sure to... More

We were staying at the Best Western where this restaurant is located and thought why not eat here. It was excellent. I had the Shepherd's pie (lamb and mashed potatoes), my husband had the haddock and my b-i-l had the Spiced Salmon. It did take a while but we enjoyed beer as we waited. And we all shared an awesome... More

Service was a bit slow for 3 PM, with little to no customers besides ourselves. Food was adequate, but nothing special. Beer was good. Place looks like it gets lively at night.

I have often been to Waxys both during the week and weekend, spring, summer, fall and winter. The bar area is heads above anybody in Keene. The food, not so much. The past few times, the burgers were always rare and chicken wings have been under cooked. However the servers are top notch and bartenders always are friendly. Prices IMHO... More

We have been here several times over the past months for late lunches. This last time they had a revised menu, the old favorites were still there but they have added new items. I had the large Caesar salad, still as good as ever, with the tasty blackened shrimp and the three Kobe sliders, cheddar and tangy ketchup, very good.... More

We were recommended this place. Lovely setting with outside seating. We found the food and drinks to be overpriced and that they were relying on this being an Irish pub to attract clients. I had macaroni cheese which I thought was a little bland but very nice although hardly any topping

The Guinness on tap is terrific...but the service for lunch is dismal. We were just about the only couple there but still waited 35 minutes for our beef stew to come and were late getting back to work. Haven't been back...

I have been here a few times and cannot think of one complaint! The staff is friendly, polite and attentive. Out of every restaurant I've been to, this is by far the best. Excellent food, cocktails and atmosphere. I wish I lived closer so I could frequent this restaurant. I highly recommend Waxy's if you're in the Keene, NH area.

Six of us went to Waxy O'Connors for lunch last Saturday. The service was horrible - we waited ten minutes for them to even acknowledge we were there, and once we ordered we waited 50 minutes for our sandwiches. The drinks arrived sooner - 30 minutes after we ordered them. The lunches were cold, burgers overcooked and chicken sandwich inedible.... More

My family and I ate there for the first time for a quick dinner on our way to the movies. the food was really good, and quick. I guess rebuilt from something in Ireland. It looked great.
