This is an authentic Irish pub that we enjoyed while we lived on our boat in Fort Lauderdale, FL from 1998 to 2001. We ate there a lot. Just had lunch last Monday and it brought back a flood of wonderful memories. The "Bangers and Mash" were as good as I remembered.

The food is better than average. Although advertised as an Irish pub, I found it to be more of a sports bar with Irish overtones and food. I would point out however that the interior decor is completely Irish.

We stopped here as we were exploring the area before our cruise, we had so much fun talking with the great staff and locals! We had a few bears and an app (homemade chips and dip) and we loved it so much, we went back later for dinner! Awesome food, and large portions, with great prices!

I was disappointed with Waxy's. The food was mediocre, basically pub food. They have a large selection of beers but a very limited wine selection. The pub atmosphere was great and there were a lot of people there drinking and watching football. There is music and tv's galore with football on all channels. Not my type of place.

The night group visited, they served the "jamo promo" which was a beer and a shot of jameson whiskey. Many of us found that quite enjoyable. The sheperd's pie ... eh
