I have eaten at Waxy's three times, and each time I've found the food exactly how I imagined it would be on ordering - delicious, generous and memorable. The service has been outstanding, the staff friendly and cheerful. The dining areas aren't cramped, and there is a sense of Irishness - a made up word that is the best way I can describe it. I would recommend Waxy O'Shea's to anyone, you will not be disappointed!

Our group of three were very happy with the service and the meals at Waxy's for lunch. Good Irish Pub atmosphere with food at a reasonable price and very tasty.

Just across the street from E.Hayes Hardware where you are coming to see Burt Munro's Fastest Indian motorcycle on display so eat at this great pub first to have the energy to peruse E.Hayes
emporium.
My favorite: Their lamb fry (liver) was great along with the Bangers & Mash enjoyed by my husband. Draft beer of course to go with the pub grub. This is a very comfy,casual place.

Apparently many of the trappings of this pub were actually brought from Ireland. We found the atmosphere to be warm and welcoming and there is a nice bar. Some people obviously come here to watch a sporting event. We had dinner here twice; it was very good. The salmon was especially tasty.
