Efficient, friendly service. Pleasant surroundings, excellent inexpensive food. Live music much too loud.

Unfortunately never had a meal here but the food looked delicious! Brilliant atmosphere between not sitting in silence but loud enough to hear yourself think and talk. Reminded me of Lord of the Rings/The Hobbit with the different levels of floors and beautiful woodwork. There are quieter areas to have drinks and food if wished or some busier areas. I... More

Went in here for some pre-dinner drinks and its a super place! Bar staff are super friendly and it is well worth exploring round the place - there has been some effort put into the decor! Good live music on when we were there too.

Went here for a pint on a Saturday afternoon and the place was packed. The pub is very nicely decorated inside, has a cosy atmosphere and seems to cater for special occasions as well. The only downside I could think of was that the pub is huge and can be difficult to navigate there especially after a few drinks :)

We were on a bus tour and chose this restaurant for our lunch because it looked interesting. We just wanted a warming soup and a glass of wine. We ordered the Chowder and a couple of glasses of wine from a pleasant young man at the bar and before long our wine and order came. I think the chef would... More

Many thanks for taking the time to review us. Please accept my sincerest apologies about the poor food and service you received on your last visit here.

We were in the city for a weekend. Knowing the pub from a visit 2 years ago we headed there for lunch. Brilliant surroundings and a very helpful bar tender. I had haggis, nips and tatties and they were by far the best meal of the whole weekend. Good selection on the menu and plenty of choice of drinks too.... More

On a day trip to Glasgow from NI I decided to bring my family here for lunch as I've been many times....What a disaster on a Wednesday lunchtime!!! Ordered and paid over £110 of food and drinks. Over half an hour later I had to go to the bar and ask if our sharing starters were nearly ready ....They eventually... More

We popped in here for some lunch and drinks before we headed on the train through to Edinburgh. It's so handy for people using the station being so close to it. Waxys is a maze of different little sections and bars, very unique and unusual. The staff were all very friendly and the decor is very comforting. There was a... More

Hi Willina, Many thanks for taking the time to review Waxys. Please accept my sincerest apologies about not being informed of the wait on food when you ordered. During busy spells the kitchen gets a bit of a back log when all checks come in at once. I look forward to you visiting again. Kind regards Therese More
