I booked a room at the Best Western in Keene NH for a college alumni get together in nearby Vermont. I was very pleased with the hotel. But I will not go in to that on this review. So I came to the hotel on a Friday and decided on Saturday night instead of being out with some of my... More

Because I stayed at the attached hotel, I decided this the most convenient way to eat after a long day. Although I had tried it a year or so prior, I thought I would give it a second chance. Not much improvement. I tried the green pea stuffed ravioli and had shrimp added for $5 extra. It was okay but... More

While the beer and service were great, the bangers in the Bangers and Mask were cut in half from end to end. This produced a dry and flavorless sausage. The whole point of sausages is that the casing keeps the juices in during cooking. I would like to see the kitchen go back to cooking the bangers whole and serving... More

The food here is fine, but I like to come here for socializing. There is music on Fridays and Saturday nights. It is so nice to have a bite to eat and then have drinks to enjoy the music and get some dancing in.

I called my order in for buffalo wings they said it would be 15 minutes. I went inside and told the bartender I would be out on the patio waiting for the wings. 30 minutes had passed so I asked where they were. a gentleman immediately came out of the kitchen area with the wings. That shows me a lack... More

Nice atmosphere, very friendly bartenders, great selection of beers, nice mixed drinks, very accommodating. I wish I could rate them higher but the truth is, the food quality just wasn't there. It was average at best. There were things on the menu, including beers, that they didn't have or were out of. That's very frustrating when you look at a... More

Ate here while staying at the Best Western in Keene, NH. The best part of the meal was its convenience and proximity to our room. Imagine an Irish Restaurant with draft taps that don't work. You get the picture. The server was polite and apologetic for the difficulty the pub was having with its dispensers. Still, an Irish themed bar... More

Went to Waxy's for dinner over last weekend. Our waitress was very friendly and had great suggestions for food. Everything came out quickly and was hot. My Fiance ordered a salad which he really enjoyed and the beef stew. He said it didn't have as much broth as he was anticipating but he still very much enjoyed it. I got... More

We ate at Waxy's for our anniversary dinner and were very satisfied. It was not crowded and we requested a table where we would not have to look at a TV and were easily accomodated. Our server - Kenia - was wonderful - we felt very taken care of, as if we were the only ones she was responsible for.... More

Only tried it once, but was very disappointed. Steak tips very tough and fish very mushy. Much better place in area to eat.
