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.

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!

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!

Great food and reasonable pricing. Just if you drink water with your meal, bring your own if you're going to have more than one glass.
