A favorite local pub/eatery loses the plot! As others have mentioned food OK, hit or miss really, service is just OK, and not friendly even when you are a regular like me.

I have been a loyal customer (and introduced many new clients to the place) at Waxy O'Connors, Irish Pub Restaurant, on 17th Street Causeway in Fort Lauderdale, for 15+ years, Approximately two months ago, I sat at the bar and ordered a glass of wine. The manager on duty, Victoria (many attempts to get her last name have been unsuccessful!), told me I should finish my wine and leave. I was not welcome on the premises because I had accused someone of pulling a gun on me, and called the Sherriff to their location, which they did not appreciate, 'They did not appreciate the police attention' were her words. I told her she was mistaken, and she said there were several people present who had identified me as the woman, and I should leave after I finished my wine.

Suffice to say, it was not me. I actually was ableto tell her I had been having dinner at another location on the date in question. Her response was, ' does not mean you did not come here afterwards!'. I then took the initiative to call the Broward Sheriff's office to inquire about the incidence at Waxy""s. They confirmed I was not the party involved.

When I shared my information with Victoria, she acquiesced that she 'might' have been mistaken, but I still needed to leave the premises and was not welcome back!

That evening I had just accepted a position as a Chef on a private yacht, and was to meet owners and new crew, for a celebration. I averted possible career ending situation by changong plans and directing the group elsewhere.

I have contacted the owner, Mark Rohleder, several times. Despite a promise to look into the incident, and get back to me,he has not gotten back to me. Continuous attempts to reach him have been unsuccessful. Tonight I spoke with manager on duty, Connor, who claimed to have no knowledge of this, and did not know (Manager) Victoria's last name (!).

I have been accused wrongly, this is slander, and because this location is integral to getting work in my industry, I am asking for help. Apparently the owner does not think it warrants any attention.

I still await a response from owner/management...not a place I recommend. Try The Field on Griffin Road, MaGuire's on Andrews Ave instead of this place...

I made a reservation for 8 for March26 at the lexington, ma waxy's. When I arrived with my party I was told by the manager, Jonathan Powers that he had no such reservation and there was a1and 1/2 wait. Because I had people from NH down for a special dinner there was no way we could wait. After 2 days of trying I finally reached Mr. Powers, who was extremely rude, said he apologized and that was all he was going to do. Such awful customer service. I certainly would never recommend waxy's to anyone. No stars deserved here!

The shepherd's pie was absolutely great. Probably the best i've ever tasted. However, it doesn't make up for the bad service and slowness. It took an extraordinarily long time to get our food - something like about 45 minutes. The server never offered drink refills and never checked on how everything was. Good thing we didn't have any issues with the food. \r
I love Irish pubs - my cousin runs one - and I really wanted to rate this one higher because of the outstandingi food. Unfortunately, I just can't overlook the truly awful service.

Pros: food

Cons: service

If your not a regular, you have no idea it is self seating. Had to get my own menu and eventually flag down waitress to take our order. The blonde waitress is not very friendly. After finishing our first round of beers, she never came back to ask if we wanted second round. Had to go to bar myself and get another beer. Then the food which was average tasting pub food took a loooong time. The ambiance was nice but would not go back. The Pub in Pembroke Pines is MUCH better.

I recently went to Waxy O'Connors and the service was awful. You walk in the door and seat yourself. It took about 10 minutes for anyone to come by with menus and another 30 to have your order taken. I sat at the table for about an hour without any food. I had to ask for my order to be taken and for a second beverage. The place wasn't even busy. When the food finally came it was good but not fantastic. The atmosphere was great but if you are planning for a shorter dinner, try someplace else.

My friend Rick and I went to Waxy's when we were in Florida in October. We had a nice sit down meal at the bar, and the menu was surprisingly good. The price for our meals and several pints of Irish beer was very reasonable while we watched the World Series game. We have decided we are definitely going back when we do Florida again in January.
