Good place to hang out in surfers. The only issue is the shisha smoke from the place next door make it smeell nasty outside. But otherwise indoors it great.

Called in at for drink & snack mid-afteroon. Staff were excellent, reasonably priced food & drinks. Great atmosphere. Only thing I could complain about was the only outside area was the smokers area, which is never a good place to be. Being a tourist, we wanted to soak up the vibrancy of the passing world. Tried it for awhile but... More

We went to Waxy's last Sunday for dinner as per our Parent's recommendation. We ordered 2pcs of $3 steaks with chips and gravy. We waited for almost an hour for our steak. No staff offered us to order any drinks, nor water while waiting. We have to get our own water from the bar as we cannot contain our hunger.... More

The food is very reasonably priced and the steak night is $3 a rump steak! The service is great and the Guinness Pie is to die for with garlic bread sticking out of the top.

Poorly mixed drinks. Weird, uncomfortable atmosphere. Worst of all bartenders that had no interest in the customers and were foul to patrons.

Would recommend looking at the daily specials, they offer fantastic value. We particularly enjoyed the Irish Stew and chicken curry. Can get a little noisy at times, although some may prefer that.

We visited several times throughout our trip. Good deals on foods available especially if you like a steak. Drinks deals also available. Centrally located on the main street. Atmosphere as typical pub.

On Sundays and Mondays they offer $3 steak but should order sides to go with it. I was eating disgusting steak! The steak has still visible blood on it... Learned my lesson. I get what I paid for. On regular days the steak costs $20+. I will never order such anymore. I dont know if I am still coming back... More

We have been to Waxy's three times for lunch this week. We are a family of seven 3 adults and 4 children of various tastes, which this substantial menu suited The food was abundant in serving and honest in flavour. We have enjoyed our lunches at Waxy's immensely.

Waxys is a regular spot for me and my partner. They have food deals on a daily basis, from $3 steaks to 2 for 1 on main meals. The food is always great and served promptly. There are a range of different drinks available (beers/ales/cider) at reasonable prices. Live music is a regular feature at waxys along with sports coverage.... More
