Loved this authentic Irish Pub. Great food, excellent service and good drinks. Lots of options to choose from the menu. Plenty of open space and quite lively. Will definitely visit again!

Waxy is a great Irish pub. Plenty of beer selections and the service is excellent. Food is great also. Wings are not spicy as I would like but tasty. French Onion is fantastic. Highly recommend for a weekend to watch some football with great friends.

They have a wide-ranging menu. Some English standards like bangers and mash and shepherd's pie. But also jambalaya and lettuce wraps. Steaks and seafood pasta as well. Everything I have had is good. Wait staff is very helpful.

The bar is great at Waxy's. That location was the Hartwell house for years then turned over a few times to other business that never stuck. Waxys seems like they are here to stay and for good reason. Great food, great service and a happenin...More
