Food was average at best. We ordered 6 different drinks, and not one was good. Some were not even drinkable.

If you book reservations they stick you in the dining area, so the atmosphere isnt the best. Other than that, food and drink are good.

The food was okay. Nothing special and priced average. Had reservations to sit upstairs but they said it was too busy and we couldn’t wait for a table to open.

Had to sit outside along the street and the table was very crooked and too close to foot traffic to enjoy.

Mixed drinks were prepared well but otherwise, rather disappointed. Won’t be going back.

Food was pretty good. Cocktails were very good. Beers that we had did not reflect the description, but were OK in quality. Mixed review on the soups. Corn and Carrot like creamed corn, but Gumbo was very rich and good.

Tries to be a southern style restaurant. Didn't make it. Fried chicken was like a fried dough ball. They used acetic acid instead of vinegar on the collards. Noise level ok because none was there.

We have been going to MOM’s for the last 8 years for allllll our special occasions. The food is always great, the service is always great, we love the drinks and the kids even enjoy the place. So as a family we can’t go wrong. The late night bar is always fun and the servers are fantastic as friendly. We look forward to many more meals at MOM’s.

I was planning to be in Doylestown and googled the best Sunday brunch places. I liked the menu very much for MOM so I made a reservation. The place is really cool, love the decor, we were greeted very enthusiastically. Good first impression. Menu selection seemed great and it took a while to decide. First had the Crawfish & Crab cake for appetizer, so far so good. It had a nice flavor but could have used more of the sauce. Downhill from there. I ordered the Eggs Algiers, which is basically Eggs Benedict with Fried Green Tomatoes instead of a meat. Sounded delicious and the fried green tomatoes were VERY good. The rest of the dish was not. The eggs should have been runny so that they oozed over the FGTs went cut. They were cooked completely so really more like a hard boiled egg on top which left the dish dry and not very good. My friend had the hangar steak. It was beyond well done and too tough to really eat. He had ordered it medium/well. It was basically tough and burnt. Nothing else on his plate was appetizing either. We are both "foodies" and love trying new places and new foods. Wanted dessert but not a good selection so we went somewhere else for dessert. I honestly don't know if I would return to MOM again…nothing really makes me want to.

We spent a lot of money on dinner for a friend’s birthday and thought we were coming out to hear live music. We didn’t know we were sitting in the live music area so we got rushed through the end of our meal because our table was in the set up space and then the band didn’t start for another 2+ hours! $300 later, I do not have a good taste in my mouth about this place.

The food was very disappointing last night. The butternut squash risotto was not edible. And I ordered a Manhattan which was overly sweet and syrupy. The service was actually better than usual though. I think we are going to take a break from MoMs for a while.

We were very disappointed with Maxwell's being that we had been there before over a period
of almost 30 years and not been there for some time. Having said that it was a very low key
enjoyable place to dine with great food and excellent service. This place has turned into more
of a sports bar type of atmosphere with a younger crowd and a much smaller choice on the menu.
So all I can say is that we will not be returning to Maxwell's on Main.

There are so many places to eat in this area and Maxwell's was just okay. Soup was bland. The ambiance was great but the food and service were average.

Excellent craft beer, great burger, nice waiter, our table was close to the kitchen which wasn’t perfect but other than that it was a very nice experience. I will absolutely go back.

I expected a nicer look and overall mood to the place so I was a bit worried since it was a birthday lunch for my husband. But once I tried my cocktail—The Southern Gentleman—I felt a lot better about what was to come. The cocktail was really special. I had the M.O.M.'s Cuban, which was excellent. Had he had M.O.M.'s Spicy Burger which was good. Overall, excellent cocktails, very good food, service was fine, style and ambiance of the place—meh.

Very average, popular place in town. Sat in a front booth which was noisy because of the stairwell to the 2nd floor and a full dining room. The glasses and silverware were not super clean.

MOM’s was a last minute New Year’s Eve choice. Everything was outstanding. I recommend the fried chicken. My wife and our friends enjoyed scallops.
Service was attentive and atmosphere made for a fun night. This was our first visit and we’ll be back soon.

This restaurant has a wonderful, old feel to it (historic building), and also a "city" feel. The food is great with some nice surprising vegetarian options (delicious Kale Bowl). The mushroom caramelized onion dip is the best! Love this restaurant.

Had brunch here at noon. Ordered sausage biscuits and gravy w/scrambled eggs. Gravy was very salty, biscuits were dry, and eggs were dry and crumbly. My husband ordered an omelet that came with hollandaise sauce. The sauce had absolutely no flavor at all.
