    First time at Maxwell's for my wife and I. Interior of the restaurant is a bit dated but cozy and clean. Bar is adjacent to main front dining room creating quite a bit of noise for an expected higher dining experience. Service was good but relatively slow for a Saturday evening. My wife's ribeye was actually quite tough but tasty. My lobster bisque appetizer was very good and the in-house made pistachio cheesecake was probably the best I've had. Was good to go once, but unlikely we will choose to return.

    Maxwell's is fantastic. Usually the service is excellent however on our last visit our service was very poor. Our server was absent at best, we had to continue to ask for beverage refills, he asked how our meal is tasting after we were finished eating. When you pay as much as you do at Maxwell's you expect good service, hopefully we have a better experience next time.

    Cozy atmosphere with great food and drinks. We came on a friday night for a date and the place was packed and bustling with conversations. We ordered tenderloin and ribeye. both steaks were cooked perfectly and we had a wonderful night. You can't go wrong with anything on the menu here, and when we went they had a 3 course special with wine pairings thay you could choose for 99$, if they have that option on my next visit I'll have to try it. Our server, Sam, suggested a lemon meringue martini and he was on the money with that one. It was like an adult version of a lemon drop shot, tasty!

    The rice was very watery and bland. The steak was a little tough and not seasoned well. The scallops were gritty. We did enjoy the beverages and service.

    Delicious food but we didn't pay attention to what a cup of lobster bisque was & found out it was $20 which we thought was quite high for a cup of soup.

    My husband had the special and for a 109.00 steak it should have been outstanding and it was nothing special. Everything else was outstanding as usual. Caramel pie creme brûlée and peppermint ice cream was amazing. My chicken piccata was awesome.

    I’ve been going to Maxwells since they opened. For both special occasions and just because they have the best food and service in town . But this time was a hole lot different the service was short the food was past over cooked. The sever did not close the deal I had to go and look for some one to pay. I hope this was a fluke and not the new normal.
