Reviewed December 15, 2013 via mobile

What an excellent place to meet friends, have drinks, and eat. The Shepard's Pie is the to die for and the beer is great. The atmosphere puts it all together with the feeling of being in a real Pub. The staff were very friendly and worked very well even with out party of 40 that came in. Can't wait to go back.

“Great Irish Escape in Fort Lauderdale”
Reviewed November 10, 2013

What a great spot to stop in and have a few beers and some great food. Fantastic atmosphere, service and food. So if you are in Fort Lauderdale and want to escape from the USA for a couple of hours, this is the place to go.

“Our Ft Lauderdale HangOut!!”
Reviewed October 23, 2013

My daughter and son-in-law are very good friends with the owner so I've been going here ever since my daughter moved to Ft Lauderdale, before she got married. This is a great place to hangout! Happy hour is great...their "special events" are great and the people who work here and come on a regular basis are a lot of fun. I've had about everything on the menus and all the food is good! I always look forward to returning to Waxy's and seeing the people again!!

“Go For the Beer, Not the Food”
Reviewed October 10, 2013

We recently had dinner at Waxy's. They have Guinness and Harp on tap, so that is a definite plus. We were interested in having a chat, so we sat away from the bar. The noise level (Friday night) was moderate away from the bar. They have TVs around, mostly tuned to sports. Favored UK sports like rugby and football are big draws. We all had a traditional Irish dish, and my corned beef and cabbage was OK, but nothing special. The waitress service was excellent. I'd suggest management find a first rate cook, then all would be well!
