Waxy’s Irish Bar + Kitchen Lexington
Derzeit nicht verfügbar
We went into Waxy’s for Guiness promotion night. We got married the evening prior, my new wife is from Ireland and thought this would be a fun night. The band was great and the child dancers were phenomenal! The problem? The staff. Every single one from the bartenders to the hosts and the servers looked MISERABLE. Not a smile, very cold greetings. It took 25 min to get a server to our table who claimed she was too busy with a larger table to wait on us. She finally took our order, which came out wrong. I asked to send my burger back and she said “do you want them to make you another one?” When it came back, it was an over cooked burger a plate, nothing else, not even the pickle it originally came with. I asked 3 times for a side of mayo. We had 2 friends arrive to meet us. An hour went by for them to get an appetizer delivered. We had to leave our table to order drinks from the bar, then the bartender was “put out” to have to serve us. This looked like a great bar, a great place for a celebratory night. We were very wrong and very disappointed.
Great live entertainment. Food service was slow on a light evening. Food preparation was mediocre. Steak tips were very tough. Steamed Broccoli was tasteless. Ruben came on very dry/old rye bread. Sangria mix was off. Very little follow up from the waitress who didn’t bother to ask if our food was ok or if we needed anything.
Service was ok. Food was ok. Ambience was better. Please pay close attention to the drink menu and edit the bourbon section...as a Kentucky bourbon guy I can tell you what is listed in the bourbon section (with the exception of seven items of the 30 plus) are actually bourbon. Could have been better.
Service was horrible. I waited forever and so did everyone else around me. I ordered the ribs, they were the worst I ever had. They were burnt to a crisp and very tough.
I had a coupon from the hotel and reviewed it twice with the server. He came back with my credit card and didn't take it off. However, as he handed it to me he said the discount was applied. That's stealing. I left and deducted it from his tip with a note.
Loved it and Chad Lamarsh was amazing. I was so happy with his performance
Hands down the worst place we have eaten and experienced in a long long time.
Let’s start with drinks. We ordered a Shirley Temple for our son. Came made with coke and not sprite or ginger ale as traditional. Sent it back to be made properly, but the waitress turned away before my husband could even order a beer. Finally he ordered a half and half. The waitress had no clue what that was. Kind of something traditional in an Irish Pub. It as clear since she did not know, she did not put in the order. After 5 minutes of waiting and no siting of her, my husband went up to the bar to get a beer. When he ordered another one, she had no clue that she never delivered him the first beer.
Food: The French onion soup could have had more flavor. The Dublin Dip was fine. The Shepherds pie was fine, but heavy on the potato mash. My son ordered nachos for dinner. They came out cold. Clear that they were cooked as an appetizer and left out until our food was ready. Not even under a heat lamp. The waitress should have realized the issue as soon as she touched the tray. She clearly knew the difference between something being hot or cold as she warned my husband that his plate was hot. Another batch came out, not sure if it was a new batch or simply reheated. What bothers me the most was there was never an apology. She did not care.
The restaurant was not busy when we were there...less than 20 people seated at at tables. There were two waitstaff for the 20 customers plus the bartenders.
Save your money. This restaurant is not worth it. You would do much better at almost any other restaurant.
We had a great time. The live music was awesome and that's why we came. Our waiter in training did a great job. Nice food options. Beer was cold.
Poor service, no ketchup, salt/pepper on table. Had to grab for ourselves from nearby tables. Steak tips were inedible (all fatty/gristle). Advertised an “Irish Party” at 7pm, there was still no live music when we left at 7:45pm.
Very friendly atmosphere. Staff all get along snd there is constant communication between them. They work great together in getting you fast service. Food is very good.
Simple lunch out with older relative. Nice range of menu options and specials to satisfy all appetites and budgets.
Waxy's at lunch on Sunday was uncrowded and super nice. We sat outside and enjoyed a warm Fall day, and our server was terrific - friendly and fast.
My sister and I met in Lexington and chose Waxy’s as it was near our hotel and menu looked reasonably priced. Noisiest establishment I have ever been in for dinner. Could not hear each other. Live music was awful. Food ok but I would never go back.
OK place. Food not that exciting but reasonable value. More suited if you want to have pub grub and a pint of beer with friends.
Food was good but I was disappointed that the asian salad on their website menu is not on the real menu. Also, the hostess looked like a slob. She is an attractive woman, but wore sneakers, jeans and a grey t-shirt. With a little effort should could be so much more.
The place was closed when we got there, unfortunately OpenTable was not updated with their "summer hours"
Great disappointment really, Drove all the way over their to find a note on the door
I am so sorry for this. Decisions were made last minute and we sincerely apologize for your wasted time. I would love for you to come in and dine with us so we can change you mind about us. If you do decide to come visit us, I would love for you to ask for me! Thanks for the feedback, Margery Luangrath, AGM
We enjoyed dining out on the patio very much. Initially we were the only ones outside, but it filled up before we were leaving. Service was great! Will be back
Great feedback! I am so glad you enjoyed your experience! We hope you come back to enjoy our patio again before the summer ends! -Margery Luangrath, AGM
I would not recommend this restaurant for food. It may be a great place for drinks, but overall, the food was subpar. I had a crispy chicken sandwich that was okay, but nothing special. Others at the table had fish sandwich, Sheppard's pie, and beef stew. The pie and fish sandwich were decent. The stew came out cold and vegetables were still hard.
Were out of several items. Service was great. Closed up and kicked us out in the middle of the second period of game six of the Stanley Cup Finals, at around 9:15.
Great place for a burger and craft beer.
First off the restaurant was so cold that most people where wearing there jackets and several customers complained that it was cold. We ordered 4 entrees and a salad came out almost ten minutes after the others. The first time our server came back after the other three entrees came out was when the salad came and I sent back my beef stew as it had almost no beef in it. I had ask for a new serving and the waitress came back with the same bowl of stew but had added more beef. Since it had beef plated for 15 minutes it was cold but we didn’t see our server again until the bill came and I had to ask for it to be taken off of the bill. It was a very disappointing experience
I love Waxy’s...been here many times. The Buffet was less than stellar. Chicken in the Marsala was a brick, salmon was over cooked and prime rib was still moo-ing. The breakfast bar was good, but then again how can you mess up breakfast. Desert bar items were cold or frozen. Would NEVER recommend the buffet here!
It started out fairly quiet, but then the noise level went up and it got difficult to hear the conversation.
Food was very good and reasonably priced. Service was great! Band this night was extremely talented...professional.
Great service. I can’t remember the name of our server but she was great
We really enjoyed it. The food was delicious and we had a wonderful waitress!
A little noisy, however it was the start of st Patrick's weekend.
The mustard tube was not cleaned. My friend had a pasta noodle in her corn beef and cabbage. I recommended this place too. I really like the menu also so I don’t think they will go back with me
Enjoyed the ambiance .... quiet night due to winter storm but good food and atmosphere.
Party of 10. The bartenders seemed very disengaged and less interested in the drinks I ordered at the bar before everyone arrived. Throughout the whole event I believe 4 drinks got sent back, mixed and draft. Pretty sure tap lines aren’t clean and maybe bartender knowledge on drinks not that great. If I were tending bar on Friday night I’d be super friendly because that’s a night where tips are big. Our waitress was great but there were some wait issues between rounds of drinks and food and the link. Only our waitress seemed happy to be working there so that could be the issue
Great service, including seating exactly where desired and surprising my friend with a perfect birthday sundae.
I have been to Waxy's several times for business lunches and was always very happy with the food and the service.
On this visit we had a group of 6 meeting for a business holiday lunch, the server that we had was unfriendly and rude. We sat for over 20 minutes after receiving beverages and had to go find her to ask her to take our food order. Once the order was taken, the food came out in stages over a ten minute period of time, making the others all wait until the whole party was served. Once the meals were all served she did not come back and ask how the meal were and again we had to have someone find her to pay our bill.
The food was very good but the service made for an uncomfortable lunch experience with one of our diners stating that they would not be returning to the restaurant.
Noise level fairly high and not even peak for the evening.
Kitchen seemed slow but waitress kept us informed..
Great server. Friendly and attentive Checked on us often. Food was great as well
Unfortunately this used to be a lovely spot and now it is pretty rundown and sad.
the food appears to be mostly frozen foods heated up. Flatbread pizza was puffy pizza like grade school style. really disappointing.
Bathrooms are all beat up, fixtures not working and look dingy. Light fixture in the area where the dart boards are was held up with white paper medical tape... ? seriously.
Only plus, our server was very sweet.
Nice spot to meet for lunch...fast service, good food
Like many places, getting the check squared away at lunch was too slow, esp. when lunching on a schedule.
Too loud. The only outdoor tables available were high-tops, even though I made a reservation stating "outdoors if weather good". So we sat inside. sigh.
The food was great and the service was attentive and friendly. The music volume, both live peformers and piped-in music, was so high that we couldn't talk over it, even after requesting a table as far away as possible from the speakers. A deal breaker, unfortunately.
The food and service was very good however it was so loud that I had to shout at my friend who was sitting next to be and the place was not even that crowded. the band was good could enjoy it better when the crowd thinned out
I have been here before and always enjoyed it. My friends and I usually come at 1 pm for lunch to avoid the crowds. The food is good and different. The draft menu is very good.
My only problem was being seated in a cove with a loud party. Conversation was a problem until they left. There were quieter places where we could have been seated. The party did not get noisy until after we were settled in.
Music was too loud. Beef stew was over cooked and lacking in ingredients. Salmon entree was bland. Cobb salad was very good.
