    We had a wonderful dinner at Maxwells last evening. The wine selection is outstanding. They have Napa wines from private auctions we have never seen! The presentation of the food is first rate and the taste is second to none. We enjoyed our event so much we are already planning another night to dine and enjoy a bottle of unique wine.

    If you enjoy good food and maybe trying something just a little beyond your typical meat and potatoes steak house Maxwell's is great. Wonderful staff greet you and always have wonderful suggestions for food and drink!

    The food was very average. For the price we expected more. Server was very shy and didn’t add anything to the experience. The crab cakes were pretty good but the bison meatballs tasted more like bread than meat. The lamb was OK. Elk was pretty good but the sweet potatoes on the side were too cumin heavy.

    We had fabulous food. I enjoyed my rack of lamb, immensely, delicious! My salad in the Parmesan bowl was a real treat. Our bartender at the bar was super friendly. Our server, as well, was excellent. We enjoyed every moment of our visit and cannot wait to return.

    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!
