Food was decent. It was freezing inside. We were located near the front door. The heavy curtain didn't help. Was a little dissapointed by the collard greens. It was actually cream spinach. Bbq and crab cakes were delish.

Have been to Maxie's a few times over the recent years and it is always terrific. Wonderful oysters, great seafood, outstanding service. Tough with big crowds but not surprising given the menu and service. They don't take reservations (except IC and Cornell graduations) but they...More

We read that the "Me-Oh-My-A" Jambalaya at Maxie's Supper Club (635 W State St., Ithaca, NY) was especially good, so we headed there directly. It was as promised, with an adequate amount of the goodies - sausage, shrimp, chicken, veggies. Very tasty! Just the right...More
Thank you for taking the time to share your thoughts on Maxie's. I love the Jambalaya too & our people are the best! Next time try Maxie's Mighty Mighty Gumbo and our Shrimp & Grits. We hope to serve you again sometime soon!

Maybe think about choosing a different dinner spot. The fried green tomatoes were pre-packaged and deep fried. The shrimp in the shrimp and grits were very small and few. Pricing seemed a little high for what we were served. Stick with the sandwiches and if...More
Your comments succeeded in disturbing an owner who cares. Wishing you the best.
The oysters were a great way to start the meal, but there is tons more at this restaurant. Followed oysters with jumbalaya, crab cakes and shrimp/grits which were all delicious. Plenty of great beers to choose from to accompany your meal. Key lime pie for...More

We absolutely loved this place!! Had dinner here after a day of wine tasting in the Finger Lakes. The menu was fun, lots of good choices. We started with delicious oysters from Massachusetts- small, the way I like them, and very tasty. I had chicken...More

Best wait staff ever.. not sure I have ever encountered anyone more happy to be serving us! Knew the menu items (where they were sourced, and how they were prepared, etc.). Had Salmon salad; it was great, others in my party had oysters, steak, potatoes,...More

I live about 90 miles away but go there about twice per year. (Love Ithaca anyway.) Oysters from 4 locations displayed behind the bar on ice. Discount on oysters 4-6 or 5-7. Lots of other choices. New Orleans type atmosphere with jazz bands now &...More
