Diner Reviews
  • "Just a great place to go and relax. Piano music playing from the bar area helps us enjoy the meal. One of the few places where you can go and actually have a good conversation with those your dining with. Food and service are alway good."

  • "Kids a re only allowed at Sunday brunch, but then they are welcomed"

  • "This was a great spot for a party of six coming from all corners of the city and northern suburbs: convenient parking; not crowded; excellent service; good wine list; tasty food. Aside from a rude, elderly patron yelling at us to quiet down (he somewhat apologized a few minutes later), it was a perfect venue for our girls' night out."
    Dined on 6/12/2014
  • "most people do not seem to know that this restaurant exists, and even some who know do not realize that you do not have to be a club member to eat here. it is certainly worth a look if you want a quiet spot for a leisurely meal."

  • "I've been a member of EBC for 30+ years. We often go to Maxwell's for brunch and an occasional dinner. The brunch is always wonderful, fresh, tasty, generous, with a nice variety of selections."

  • "My wife, mother-in-law, and I had a lovely brunch at the East Bank Club last Sunday. Actually, it was a somewhat re-creation of our wedding that we celebrated some 30 something months earlier there … but at that time we used all the public dining rooms on the first floor. At the time of our wedding, my wife and I were too busy to actually have eaten any of the wonderful brunch we heard about. Last Sunday, we enjoyed ourselves … and the food … and the service. Our server Lorena was wonderful. We look forward to going back again."
    Dined on 4/6/2014
  • "This place in a private club that is open to the public is a price performer with over the top quality food. The Friday Night Italian buffet is great quality and very fairly priced and has a great Jazz band to go with great food and service. Call and ask for Charles and watch the magic unfold. This is the best Easter Mothers Day Thanksgiving placer to go..The Sunday Brunch at 24.00 per person can not be beat"

  • "Great omelet and accoutrements at a reasonable price Healthy prep Not greasy"
    Dined on 2/16/2014
  • "We went to Maxwell's literally based on a picture a former student posted on Facebook. And we were very glad we did! Our visit was better than we even hoped it would be, (though we would have liked to be closer to the music.) The people who work there are wonderful. from the maître d' to our waitress to the wonderful man who refilled our water, we were pleased to meet them. We look forward to returning when special occasions occur. It was quite a trip to the site, but every mile was worth it!"
    Dined on 2/14/2014
  • "It took almost 15 minutes to have a server visit us, but once he came he was more attentive. Since it was for brunch I assume he thought we would get up and go to it, but one of our party wanted off the menu, and we all had bloodies and mimosas. Food from buffet was quite fresh and everything was nicely prepared. Omelet bar options were very thorough."

  • "A comfortable and pleasant spot for really tasty and healthy food. The service is always friendly and attentive. The brunch and Italian buffets have lots of great options and are lots of fun for adults and children."
    Dined on 12/20/2013
  • "This was my 2nd year doing the Thanksgiving buffet and the food was just as good this year as it was last year!! The staff was also very attentive and great! $45 for a buffet on Thanksgiving is Chicago's best secret if you do not cook or won't be home with family for the holiday. I would definitely consider returning again."
    Dined on 11/28/2013
  • "Nice antipasto/salads yet all entrees were non-Italian! One person staffing the create your own pasta often left several people waiting in line -- you choose pasta, sauce and additions such as veggies, meatballs, etc., but that was the only Italian part of the meal besides the antipasto. Waiter, when asked about different food items, replied "that's very good" or "that's very good too" :-) never replenished our bread or offered us a second cup of coffee. Was told by hostess upon validating our parking stub that parking would be complimentary but the robo-parking attendant was telling me to insert my credit card for the $28 fee!! Pushed call button and after about 10 minutes of fooling around was finally released from the parking prison."

  • "Usually love the food. Farm to table special was a disaster. The only good dish was the dessert."
    Dined on 10/23/2013
  • "Disappointed in general. Only had soup and salad as we didn't really see an entree that excited us. Soup was good; brussel sprout salad was so-so. No vegetarian entree, which is shocking in a health club! Service was terrible: waitress was loud and a bit condescending to a table of older women: seemed really surprised when we all ordered wine (!!) Really?!? She didn't bring the sweet potato fries we ordered as a side: we had to ask for them towards the end of the meal when they had not shown up. Overall, very disappointing. I live in the neighbourhood but will not return."
    Dined on 10/23/2013
  • "we got white fish and salmon - both very good, very basic, and healthy. veggie sides great. tuna bruschetta appetizer was way overpriced - $12 for 2 pieces of bread and a few bites of tuna. a nice meal, but way overpriced."

  • "We are regulars and LOVE it. The service could not be more accomodating, professional, or friendly. the food is always fabulous and the chef is very flexible about substitutions, it is obvious they want satisfied customers, they really care. It is so well managed and executed! Friday Italian buffet is really awesome and a great value. salads are fresh, entrees always good and the pasta bar chef is a pasta magician. I also highly recommend the whitefish. Actually, everything on the menu is awesome.. And so fun to sit in the bar and listen to the fabulous jazz trio. This may be one of the best kept secrets in River North. Thanks Maxwells!"
