First of all, I have to say I LOVE Waxy O'Connors. The food is really good and the atmosphere is even better. For those of you downing it, I see you all went there in the first month it opened. Doesn't every new bar or restaurant need a chance to work out the kinks. I have been there a bunch of times and have never been disappointed. Been to Casey's in Mansfield. Talk about bad food. The bar area was nice, but the seating area looked like a small cafeteria. Check out Waxy's O'Connors. The place is beautiful, just what Foxboro needed.

I have not tried Waxy's yet, but I have been to Casey O'Connors and the food was fabulous! A few of us couples went New Year's Eve for dinner and the staff were very friendly and the food is wonderful! I highly recommend it!

I love Waxy's!! FOR LUNCH!!! I'm over 70. Don't appreciate noise when eating,but am so happy to find a place with atmosphere for lunch. We've been often, and I have a problem deciding "Bangers and Mash" or "Shepherd's Pie". My friends really enjoyed the lamb stew and the Guiness beef stew also. I'm about ready to order some "to go". The staff are so pleasant and helpful too.

I noticed that most people are complaining about the MA Waxy's and rightfully so! I just want to point out that there are several USA locations. I, personally have been to the ones in San Antonio, Fort Lauderdale and was in Foxboro a couple of weeks ago. Let's just say San Antonio Waxy's rocks, Lauderdale is OK but MA has lots of issues to work out from food quality to mediocre staff! I've also had the pleasure of visiting Waxy's in London and was very pleased. My favorite is definitely Texas, great food, nice staff that really make you feel at home in a cozy atmosphere.

i agree waxys isnt off to a great start, but thats typical with any new resturaunt.the food is good maybe slightly over priced but hey thats the economy for you. I think waxys needs to work on somethings like the volume of the music,the cold breeze when u first walk in, and the dark lighting but overall the place is a wonderful place to have dinner,apps and socialize.i think some people have high standards for any resturaunt and there will always be someone that has outrageous complaints but like i said its not like im gunna boycott the place.people need to chill out and realize that resturaunts have glitches but they will work on them in time.and waxys is here to stay..just you watch..trust me
PS the crowd is definitely 35+ but there are some early 20s crowd there sometimes...but its still a good mix-just depends if you go during college break
PSS waxys oconnors has no relation to the one in ireland

Look times are tuff, the economy sucks, every industry is suffering. But even when the economy was flourishing, all restaurants have problems that need to be ironed out over the course of the opening months. I have been in the restaurant business for over 15 years, and opened several different restaurants. I can honestly say that there is not one restaurant that opens its doors and is perfect. Every city, town, and state are different. What works in one area might not work in another. You cannot dismiss a restaurant during the first four months of being open, its unfair. If you had an unpleasant experience, try to take it in perpective. Yes it is going to be busier on the weekend, and yes you might have to wait for a table. But do they take reservations? I think so. More than likely the people who have these outrageous experiences, have never worked in the food service industry and think its unbelievable to wait for an hour and a half for a table on a Saturday night at 7:30. But are happy to wait three and half hours at some "warehouse-type" restaurant because they can get a free appetizer and piece of cake on their 47th birthday.

BUYER BEWARE @ WAXY's...We have been to Waxy's three times; twice our credit card was charged more than what we authorized (one for $2 more and the other for $10 more!) Of course we saved our receipts and went back to the mgr for our $ back. The third time there was 3 additional drinks listed on our bill, in which the bartender appologized and removed...I don't think we'll be back there. Make sure you check your bill before cashing out and your statement if you use a credit card!!!!!
Oooops they did it again!!!!! Very poor service and are bad with money........Be careful and pay in cash!!!!!

We've been to Waxys a few times. I can't comment on the food because other than a few appetizers which were good; we've never had dinner there. Its a great place to meet new people and have fun as we always do there. Its a great alternative from going all the way into Boston to go to clubs where Waxys is deffinitely the new hip place to go locally. I also loved a band we saw there but I can't remember the name. Maybe frayed knot?
See you at Waxys

I have been going to Waxy's for about two months. I have never had a problem with any of the food, service, or being over charged. I think the food is very reasonable in price. The menu reflects a good range of food and pricing! I love the Shepard's Pie! For all those bashing the place...give it another try. You might have caught it on a bad night! It also has great live music on the weekends. The crowd varies in age. It is a good mix!

"Tried Waxy's on Thanksgiving day. Not only was it a disappointment, but I was highly insulted that they would give the Irish a reputation for the most disgusting experience I have ever had at a restaurant. Starting with the slow service, cold soup. Upon return it had been doused with a large quantity of salt (high maintenance chef?). No rolls.(Did our Irish families ever sit down with no rolls or bread?). A disgrace to our Heritage"

I come from an Irish family and we never sat down with rolls! I have gone to Waxy's on several occassions and always left there happy. I think the food represents the Irish very well. The stews are great and have always come out warm and it comes with brown bread!! Are ytou just upset because you didn't get a piece of free bread!
Oh and coming from an Irish family- most people stick to the tradition of eating at home on Thanksgiving!!!

Hhhhmmm if you hate it so much, go back for a fourth time in three months. Think about it, it's been open since November and you've been SO DISAPPOINTED three times. Do the math. Something must be drawing you there (or maybe your just looking for a respond to this email any maybe a gift certificate or something.......NOT gonna happen......

Went to Waxy O'Connor's in Foxboro tonight. My wife had the fish pie and found a piece of wood, like a broken twig in it! We told the waitress and she brought us a replacement pie with no wood in this time. But they never offered us any discount or recompense.

Needless to say, we won't be going there again.

Are you sure it wasn't a "twig" from fresh thyme or rosemary? Was there a bay "leaf" in your soup too?
