Sorry for the hot experience. Our open air "breeze room" is not air conditioned, but that is up for a change by next summer. It's getting too hot around here. Thank you for your business and we hope to serve you again soon!

Had individuality. The crab cake and fries and soup were good. Corn bread and butter served to everyone. My husband enjoyed his fish fry. It was bustling but relaxing.

We really enjoyed Maxie’s! Delicious basket of cornbread and compound butter brought to the table, great variety on the kids menu, good weeknight specials (my husband had the $12 fried chicken dinner on Tuesday, kids eat cheap on Wednesdays, etc.), and our meals were delicious....More

Their portabello po'boy is so unique! It is so tasty that I've tried to copy it at home. The waffle fries are great, too.
