Maxwells is our "go-to" place for a quiet, relaxing special occasion. My husband and I faithfully in love with the surf and turf entree which we get whenever we go. We also enjoy the atmosphere as the lighting is perfect and there is plenty of space between other tables to provide privacy.

My hubby and I came in for our anniversary, and everything was amazing!! We started with the escargot and both had the surf and turf. Both were beautiful and delicious! At first I found it odd that there was no salt and pepper on the table, but didn't need it anyway. I asked our server Katelyn for a wine suggestion, and she nailed it. We will definitely return!

This restaurant had the best service I have ever experienced. Extremely delightful staff, especially our waiter Tyler. The food was incredible, and I would highly recommend the bacon beer cheese soup, it was to die for.

The food was tasty. My husband and I both enjoyed our meals. Unfortunately there was only one vegetarian dish to choose, which was pasta, so I did not have any other alternative options. The service was excellent, our waiter was great, as were all other staff members.

As always, Maxwell's exceeded expectations. Date night is never less than perfect thanks to Ramon, Chef Mike, and all of the phenomenal staff. The setting is perfect for date night, business meetings, or special occasion celebrations. The music is never too loud, so conversation is never difficult. The wine list is full of gems and has something for every taste. Thank you for the great night!

Food is always great, top notch. Prices are a bit high. This time around the ice cream machine didn't work well and the desert, bread pudding, was floating in ice cream.

We celebrated New Years Eve a day early. Great Bacon Wrapped Bison and lo lobster, Surf & Turf, Lobster Fettuccini, Molten Lava Cake, Escargot in shells. Plate presentations were perfect and the flavours were awesome. Cucumber Moscow Mule, Spanish Coffee drinks were superb. Great background music and ambiance. Host Ramon was very gracious and our waitress Caitlin was knowledgeable, attentive and made our experience memorable. This is a place where you are not rushed. Highly recommend! We will be back.

Food is excellent!
However, if we hadn't double-checked our bill we would have paid for 3 salads instead of the 1 we ordered. Hope this isn't a frequent oversight on the part of the staff.
Bloopers happen to the best of us 😊

This was our first time here, for my fiance's 30th birthday party. Service was great, but the food was extraordinary. The surf and turf with bacon wrapped bison and crab claw was to die for, and I've never had a better tenderloin in my entire life. Can't wait to go back for another special occasion!!!

I have had wonderful meals here in the past. Love the atmosphere and ambiance. Decided on the special of the evening which was halibut. Presentation, flavors, were wonderful but halibut was overcooked and dry. First time I was disappointed with my meal at this restaurant. Would still highly recommend.

Maxwell’s never ceases to please. The manager greeted us with “ happy anniversary”, the bartender mixed a wonderful margarita, and our server provided the perfect amount of attention. The shared ahi tuna app was superb. Recommend the beef tenderloin w/goat cheese. We also had the halibut special, which was also a delight. One of the best times ever.

We were not rushed at all. The food was excellent. Cheese plate was the best I have had in Fargo. Salads were a great add. Surf and Turf and the Ribeye were both excellent. The waiter gave each course time to breath and never rushed it. And the chocolate lava cake was the perfect end to a stuffed tummy and wonderful evening.
