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.

Fast friendly meal. Ate at happy hour. Very roomy, even though a lot of people were there, we didn't find it noisy and were able to visit with each other easily. Food was so good.

Live band was ok. Food ok but overpriced. Not happy with drink. Ordered an old fashioned on the menu but made a little differently. Didn't have one of the key ingredients I wanted but instead of telling me, the waitress just served it to me with something different. It tasted terrible. A wasted $10.50. Will definitely try somewhere else.
