East Bank Club- Maxwell's at the Club
Book your next event with us
It was pasta night so there were even more choice than usual. Music from the bar made for very a nice ambiance. Lorena is fantastic - humorous, attentive and friendly.
Went for their Easter brunch. Have gone there multiple times for the Easter brunch and regular Sunday brunch. Always a nice selection of healthy and regular items available on the buffet. Reasonable price for the wide selection of food. We have a dog and like the heated underground parking. The weather is never an issue when leaving the dog in the car while eating. Parking is about $5.00 with validation. Make reservations early if you want specific time slot because they fill up fast. The staff is always very helpful and friendly! I would highly recommend their Sunday brunches.
Italian Night buffet was a wonderful adjunct to the terrific menu always available! Something for everyone, and a great time was had by all!
Food was delicious! Rapid service, comfortable setting
Maxwell's offers consistent service, food quality and drinks. Servers proactively provide details that enhance the experience. I had the beet salad (always on my must list), crab cake starter and Butternut Squash Gnudi.
Just ok, not fancy, limited menu, nice service
My husband and I enjoyed a leisurely Sunday brunch. From the food choices, to the impeccable service our Sunday morning was delightful.
Healthy and enjoyable.
Brunch following workout with kids.
It was Italian night so there was a buffet or the regular menu to choose from. Music made the ambiance quite festive. Dinner was great as usual. Service was terrific.
Consistently good food and somewhat laidback service which is not a problem unless you're in a hurry! Brunch is one of the best in the city with nice variety & made to order waffle.
Good menu updated seasonally and warm friendly service in a comfortable environment.
We have eaten at Maxwell's quite a bit as we are East Bank Club members. We were very disappointed in our experience Tuesday. The service was not good, the food took an exceptionally long time, and my dish, which is a seasonal one, was really not right. We happened to notice that a couple at a table near ours was also having difficulty with their order. We have never had a bad experience at Maxwell's before and hope that this was just a really bad night.
Great service and menu is always changing seasonally.
Great food and service
They changed the menu and it has less options than a dive bar at restaurant prices.
Every thing about our dinner was outstanding. Would highly recommend this restaurant !
Always excellent service, foud and atmosphere, inba relaxed and casual environment.
Maxwell's Italian Night buffet on Friday nights is outstanding. It's a great way to end the week!
Wonderful meal as usual. I dine here all the time and it is consistently good. First the bring to the table a plate of carrots, celery olive and radishes , with a wonderful bread basket . Then the menu is large so there are lots of choices . With lots of healthy options. In the bar they have entertainment so it is fun to sit and eat in there also.
Very fun waitress. Lively atmosphere :live music in the bar
Their holiday brunch/lunch is just fantastic! I've moved our family Thanksgiving there, and just went to their Easter brunch!
Best kept secret in Chicago, awesome menu and food!
Love the service and love the food. We go at least monthly and have never been disappointed.
The new chef has too much fish on the menu. Overall the food is not as well prepared.
Maxwell's is a favorite place for my wife and me. Food is always top notch and very consistent. Service is outstanding. Every time we eat at Maxwell's we are totally satisfied.
My wife and I like Maxwells's in part because it is close to our apartment and can always get in. But also the service friendly and food is terrific! And, even with the live entertainment in the bar, it is quiet enough to converse in a normal tone of voice. A special Chicago place!
The appetizers we ordered were really good. The entrees were mediocre. When my salmon dish was placed on the table, I chuckled. In my opinion, the menu change is not a success. However, the restaurant is convenient because it’s located in East Bank Club so you can grab dinner after a workout or spa service. However, I can think of several better restaurants to spend $100. If I dine here again, we’ll stick to the appetizers.
First time to eat at Maxwells although I am a member of the Club. Service was slow to fulfill our order. Turkey burger arrives on a cutting board and looked more like a grilled cheese on greasy bread. Oddly enough, the waitress had asked if I wanted cheese on the turkey burger and I asked for cheddar. There was no cheddar on the burger and when I asked the waitress about that, she ignored me and left. The other person's smoked salmon cobb salad was so small that he commented to the waitress about it. I wanted to like Maxwell's but unless it changes I probably won't go again for lunch. The atmosphere is pleasant however and quiet for conversation for a business meeting.
Always consistent great food, drinks and service!
I went for the brunch with my husband and two small children. My 2 year old decided to sit in the booth instead of the high chair. I let her in order to avoid a total meltdown. When I received my bill, she was charged the childs fee. When I asked the waiter why (they advertise charging kids 4 and older) he told me that they have to charge kids not sitting in the high chair. Have you ever heard of anything so asinine? I didn't ask to speak to anyone else because it wasn't a lot ($6) but I left there in disbelief over this policy. We eat out a lot and have never come across a policy like this.
Had a wonderful Sunday brunch at Maxwell's. Every dish I tasted on the brunch buffet was flavorful, seasonal, and delicious. Lots of seafood items and the omelette and waffle stations were fun for the kids. Excellent, friendly service as well.
I love the new menu - fresh and inspired - and delicious. I enjoyed the Caesar salad and grilled calamari. Great place for people wanting gluten-free. All the menu items are marked for GF, V, Heart healthy. I love it.
Cocktails in the bar first are terrific, particularly with live combo and vegetables with dip offered. Parking is available in garage below.
You can never go wrong with a buffet, especially one that is centered about breakfast! We were very pleased with the breakfast selection, lots of different meats, omelettes, eggs Benedict, pancakes, etc. however, there was a lack of lunch items. Only items were Caesar salad, shrimp, and tabouleh salad. I would have considered this to just be a breakfast buffet vs brunch buffet. But, overall everything was delicious!
The live music is always a nice treat to go with a wonderful meal.
I've been to Maxwells several times for different menu specials, brunch, Thanksgiving and recently for their Summer BBQ which was totally awesome!! Food is always fresh and terrific. Service is wonderful. Mr. Reid is great, always friendly and attentive. I tell everyone I know about Maxwells.
Love sitting in the bar area before dinner. Wait staff was friendly and the food was great. A little disappointed in the quality and flavor of the tuna entree, but everything else was wonderful. Definitely a top pick for after work dinner or business meal!
The food is always excellent at the East Bank Clib. The server was attentive. The bar scene is nice before dinner.
