We wanted to return for a great meal. Even though we read that the restaurant was open. When we arrived, there was a note on the door that said,"We are closed for the summer." I wish their site was up to date.

Went with party of four. Two had chicken marsala, two had steak.good grub. But the fun is in the decor. Bears, Bison, Bobcats, my first Jackalope, and many other critters surround you as you eat. Such fun.

Maxwell Inn is not a place everyone knows about but once you have been there it will always be one of your favorites when you are in the area. Best Steak Sandwich in Northern California.

Trip Advisor has the location wrong. It's in the town of Maxwell, not in a residential area of Colusa which is 30 miles away. The Maxwell-Colusa Rd changes to Oak St in Maxwell, it's at 81 Oak St, Maxwell, CA on I5, about 30 miles...More
