The dinner my wife and I had was enjoyable. My wife's salad w/shrimp on the side was enjoyable. My salmon was a bit over cooked - dry. The service was fine - the wait staff was friendly/engaging.

The live music and the great drinks (bartender could be Vin Diesel's twin!), I have always enjoyed coming to Waxy's to go dancing. If you want to get a seat in the dancing area you'll want to get there early. If you drink too much Waxy's is located in a hotel. I thought the rooms at the hotel to be... More

Stayed at the Best Western overnight. Stopped into Waxy's for drinks and appetizer. They were accommodating in getting a table fir us so that our teenage daughter could be with us and not in our room alone. Drinks and pizza were very good.

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.

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).

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.
