I stopped here for a pancake. I figured with pancake in their name this was going to be the best pancakes ever Service was good and a nice atmosphere The food came out very fast my eggs and hashbrowns were piping hot but unfortunately my pancake was ice cold. The butter wouldn't melt and the syrup would barely sink in.... More

We have recently been here for "breakfast at lunch time" as well as a lunch, both were really very good. The people who work here are super friendly, the coffee cup or soda glass keeps being refilled. It really is a great family restaurant. I just wish it was open later than 3 PM. It is tucked back away from... More

We found this restaurant out in error. It is tucked back with several other businesses. We were glad we tried it out as it had a good menu and the service was great!

I feel stupid as i have lived 2 miles from this place for 1 1/2 years and never been there. I thought it was just a Denny's wannabe. Then when i sat down for breakfast and saw the menu, that was again my impression. I was very wrong. This is, at least for breakfast, much higher quality and actually lower... More

We enjoyed a weekday breakfast at Maxfield's, and we came away with a new 'go to' place. Maxfield's opens at 6 AM, which for those of us with early industry jobs is a good send. The wait staff is old school friendly, right out of Mel Diner in all the good ways. Made the experience feel more like home. Service... More

The food was spectacular, arrived at our table very quickly after ordering and our waiter George was amazing! By far, he was the best waiter in recent memory. He checked on us often but not too often, when another server overfilled my coffee cup by accident, he immediately brought me a fresh cup. He offered great suggestions (can't go wrong... More

If volume is your sole criterion for a good meal, you won't be disappointed. However, if you're looking for food that has taste, or something a little different, don't bother. My pancakes were pale blonde and flavorless without loads of synthetic syrup. My bacon was the size, shape, and taste of salty shoe leather. Hash browns? Yuck.

Maxfield's is a very friendly restaurant with food beyond my expectations. The menu is vast and varied, reasonable and the staff was so polite and friendly. My date and I were able to sit and chat for a couple of hours which we did not realize at the time until our server mentioned they were closing in a half hour.... More

Maxfield's Pancake House specializes in breakfast, and they do an amazing job of it! At Maxfield's you get a lot of food at a very reasonable price, and everything I've ordered there is delicious, tasty, and wonderful. It's fun eating at Maxfield's, and all the waitresses do a wonderful job. Maxfield's take out is every bit as good as being... More

A load of choices, a loaded plate, and an attentive and pleasant waitress who kept our cups of coffee filled continuously, all at a reasonable price. The diner is quaint, clean, not fancy. Rather it was down to earth and very good, served with a smile and a thank you. I will most definitely return.

Thank Philip H
