Enjoyed a wonderful lunch at Waxy's on a cold winters day. The fire was roaring away and the atmosphere very relaxing. The staff were very friendly and the service prompt. The battered Blue Cod was superb, served with a generous green salad and mountains of chips. My partner had the open chicken sandwich which tasted amazing. Great value - we'll be back!

What a great place for a meal & an ale! The extensive menu offered a wide range of meals at good prices and there was a good wine/beer list to choose from. Service was great, meals good value and atmosphere great. Will visit again next time I'm in Invercargill.

It's been a number of years since we've dined at Waxy's and we thoroughly enjoyed the meal. The staff were friendly, service was reasonably quick and the generous meal was delicious. It was a week night so wasn't too noisy. The menu changed the following week so we will be back to see what will tempt our taste buds from the new one.

Went for dinner group of 8. We were put in the side room with another table with 4 toddlers. They screamed yelled and behaved badly. Poor parenting. Not waxys fault. We asked to move to escape the noise but we were told they couldn't find us a table. My chicken was nice but potatoes weren't quite cooked. Other meals were reasonably nice.
Disappointing to spend money on a night out to listen to screaming children. As this is more of a pub restaurant was surprised. We won't be going back.

Lovely meal as always. We would recommend that you visit. We were so full we could not eat dessert. We will be back next time we visit Invercargill.
