Went to Waxys with a co-worker and had a great sandwich and my friend had beef stew. Both were good. The waiter was fairly attentive could have been a little better but ok. The place is clean and neat and the food was hot and the beer was cold.

Hubby & I had a delightful Friday night dinner date here to round out the year. We were seated right next to a fabulous fireplace. The place was very quiet for a Friday night before a weekend holiday. But that made our date extra nice. We especially chose this Irish restaurant for their amazing Guinness beef stew, perfect on a... More

Stopped for lunch after hearing so much about it, particularly the buffet and bus to home NE Patriots games. The French onion soup was excellent as was the burger. The service was good and the place - spotless. Good choice when in downtown Foxboro.

This place used to be great. Our family of four stopped by for lunch on Sunday afternoon. It wasn't terribly busy, but we waited nearly an hour for our food. When it did arrive it was all cold. My husband's fish & chips looked amazing, but was gross, as it had obviously been sitting around for quite some time. My... More

Not sure why this place is getting a bad rap with reviews. Went here on a Saturday and the place is a lot bigger inside than I thought. Sits in a shopping center near downtown Foxboro not far from Gillette. Traditional Irish decor with a huge wrap around bar and then another room with a bar and games, plus pool... More

Stopped by for lunch with a friend the other day, sat on the porch and enjoyed the sun and sounds of Summer. Waitress was attentive and friendly. I had Rueben sandwich, it had large slices of corned beef not thin deli slices. It was great. It is a great spot for relaxing lunch.

We went for lunch and I ordered Yellow Fin Tuna wrap. I asked the waiter if it is a real Yellow Fin Tune and he said oh yes, but it was canned tuna wrap and it was very disappointing because I was expecting real tuna stake type of wrap!! Service was good. We sat outside patio and it was nice.... More
