Nostalgia for me because I remember when this place was a bar called Hutleys! Good times then and now great meals. The food is a good value and the quality is consistent.

This place is really fun to visit. The food is excellent and the wait staff very pleasant and attentive. It really reminds us of pubs we have eaten at in Ireland. We've been several times when we visited the area, and certainly wish we had...More

My law school has bar nights here, I have gone to two of the events and both are good. The music isn't too loud so you don't have to scream to talk and the food is good.

Nice atmosphere. Drinks are fine, beer is good, but the food is just eh. The burgers are not so good and the lettuce in my salad was old. It was lunch, so maybe yesterdays salad. Not good.

My husband and I recently had lunch at Maxwells for the first time--but it won't be the last. I'm loving it that they serve Pepsi! and my Memphis Pulled Pork sandwich transported me directly south to Memphis! Great southern barbeque in this northern town. My...More

A nice place for dinner. I've never had to wait too long for a table. Food is decent. The place is sometimes loud due to the sports bar, but overall a good place to eat.

A great casual dining spot located in the heart of Islip. Maxwell's, American Bar & Grille, offers the best of everything: an innovative menu, family-friendly atmosphere- and a chance for us to bring our trademark "Main Street" restaurant style to our own hometown.
