RESTAURANT'S FAVOURITE REVIEW
Reviewed 4 weeks ago

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 do have a 30 minute call ahead "reservation" number to use. Just gets you in... More

Maxie's participated in teachers week where meals were discounted. Our service was great, our food was delicious! The atmosphere is fun. Lighting is a bit dark in the evening (my cell phone flashlight feature helped with reading the menu)

Maxie's Loves Teachers! Thank you for your service to the community. We also appreciate your kind words and support of Maxie's. And, yes we like to say the lighting is "romantic" at Maxie's, and I too need help reading the menus sometimes. We will consider larger font in our next menu design. Thank you! More
