The wood that was brought overseas to make the bar is gorgeous. The atmosphere is comfortable, and it's a great place to socialize. The burgers are really good; some of their food isn't as good, but it's a great place to get a drink . . been there often.

Celebrated New Years Eve at Waxy O'connors with 3 friends. This was my first visit and the place was outstanding. Love the layout of the pub and the decor. It was very busy as you can imagine but everyone there was friendly and comfortably having a good time with one another. The live music was great plenty of room to... More

We stopped in one night for a late dinner, as everything in the area was already closed. We were greeted and brought to a table promptly. Our waitress was very friendly and took good care of us. I ordered the turkey club and my boyfriend ordered a burger. Both were good. The turkey club was definitely enough for two meals.... More

We visited onThanksgiving Eve, our waitress was fantastic! The food was very good, the portions were large and the atmosphere reminded us of an actual pub we visited in Ireland.

I live in Keene and rarely go here. Great bar, great beer selection but the food, once again is poor. We ordered the mushroom melt and veggie nachos. The mushrooms were ice cold. I suspect they were frozen and they through them on the grill but they did not heat them through. The nachos were the blandest I have ever... More

And I don't know if we had any consider a "House Specialty" so the food may be better. Now this isn't to say it was bad, heck should we be in the area, we would consider going back and trying something else (just for variety). I had Irish Chicken Wings and my wife had a a plate of Potati Puff.... More

We went twice and no matter what we ordered it was sub par in flavor and over-priced. Most of it was way too bland. Service was slow both times.

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
