We always do takeout at Waxy's because it is so loud in there, you can't think. The burgers are very good and we get the onion strings instead of the French fries. Good selection of liquor and the steak and wings are good too.

Located in the middle of an office park area. The bar has a good range of beer and other alcoholic drinks. The food is okay and sometimes a bit greasy - typical pub food in the Boston area. They can accommodate big groups and they...More

Loved this authentic Irish Pub. Great food, excellent service and good drinks. Lots of options to choose from the menu. Plenty of open space and quite lively. Will definitely visit again!

Just getting into town and needed a place to eat after a long flight. My friend suggested Waxy's so we went. Great steak salad and a cold beer. The wings were very good too.

Waxy is a great Irish pub. Plenty of beer selections and the service is excellent. Food is great also. Wings are not spicy as I would like but tasty. French Onion is fantastic. Highly recommend for a weekend to watch some football with great friends.

They have a wide-ranging menu. Some English standards like bangers and mash and shepherd's pie. But also jambalaya and lettuce wraps. Steaks and seafood pasta as well. Everything I have had is good. Wait staff is very helpful.

Welcoming staff, great atmosphere, quality tasty food at fair prices. French onion soup and Reuben both outstanding! Beats all Irish pubs in Massachusetts.

The bar is great at Waxy's. That location was the Hartwell house for years then turned over a few times to other business that never stuck. Waxys seems like they are here to stay and for good reason. Great food, great service and a happenin...More
