    Worth driving 2 1/2 hours just for a terrific dinner at Maxwell’s. Everything just wonderful. Sensational Merrill Hotel also! And breakfast is just as great.

    The best Brussel Sprouts I’ve ever tasted. The minimalistic ambience with a view of the river is enough reason to try the restaurant.

    Maxwell’s never disappoints! We have filet which was cooked to perfection, asparagus & seasoned fries. We’ll definitely be back!

    Maxwell’s is in the lobby of the Merrill hotel, very pretty and bright across from the Mississippi River which is slightly visible. Onion soup was good. Garden salad with grilled chicken was ok - the chicken was cold. My husband had sesame crusted ahi which he enjoyed. Our server was attentive and pleasant.
