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

We travelled to Foxboro for a funeral service at a local cemetery. We had no place to meet after the service when someone recommended Waxy O'Connors. We explained why we were there and were told welcome. There were 12 of us and we were very well taken care of. I am sorry I didn't get the name of the waitress... More

5 of us met here to enjoy the live music of Chris Jason singing Sinatra. The salad was fine, the salmon was good, but that's where it ends. I asked the waitress about the New England clam chowder and whether or not it was made in house. Her brilliant answer was, "I don't know, I don't cook it." I ordered... More

The atmosphere is nice and most of the staff were very friendly and appeared to be working hard. I would go back for drinks and the bands but definitely not the food. Hard to describe, mostly unattractive and tasteless. Also the portions are very small. If you are going for drinks and the entertainment, great, but if you are going... More
