Loud Music and OK food

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... read 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.

This is a pleasant bar with standard pub fayre. The staff are very attentive and there is always live music on at the weekend. There is a good choice of beers and we enjoyed the Moat Marble Red, Oskar Blues and Founders Porter.

I grabbed food from here because it was attached to the hotel I stayed at. I ordered fish and chips $15 (haddock,fries,coleslaw) and calamari. Calamari was plain. It needed a lot more flavor and seasoning. Texture was ok. The haddock was great, texture and flavor was very good. It was the best part of the whole meal. Fries were good... More

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.
