“Delicious Food!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 January 2014

I have been here twice - both for graduation dinners. When I went in May 2011, the food was simply mind blowing and delicious. Shrimp and grits was amazing, Ribs, pulled pork, and seafood was all cooked extremely well and to die for. When I came back in May 2013, the food was really good but it didn't have the same level of wow factor that it did two years ago. I am not sure what has changed since the menu is the same but the food was missing that "WOW" factor it had a couple of years ago. With that said, the food was still amazing delicious and satisfying. Bring the family or date here and you will not be disappointed.

“Maxie's excursion”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 January 2014

Average, way too dark and needs updating. Meal was just ok but since it was so dark there, any view of the meal or table was barely seen. For the price other restaurants serve a much better meal. It was just average and as far as I am concerned revisiting there is in question!

“New Year's Eve”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 January 2014

love Maxie's. Very nice menu for new years. The salmon, scallops and shrimp and grits were great. The oyster starter special was wonderful and fresh. The crawfish were good as usual. The waiter was very nice and attentive. The wine was very good, both a red and a white and priced right.
They had tasting menus for the evening but allowed ordering single items. The place was full and festive while the service was on time, no rush.
Go for the 1/2 price oyster and clam happy hour. The draft beer selection is always good.
Thanks for a very enjoyable new year's eve.

“Great atmosphere and food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 January 2014

As a southern woman it was nice to have some Louisiana food. It wasn't exactly what I thought it would be... As I have lived in south Louisiana before.... But it was good. The service was good. I loved the jazz music. Some nights they have live music. Bar is great too.

“NOLA in the Northeast”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 January 2014

We took family with small children here for a birthday dinner for my 22 year old nephew. The view is of a busy street. Tables are close together and this place is usually crowded. But given the fact that this staff helped keep the little ones occupied with crayons and fish themed coloring projects and were very understanding, we all had a great meal. Food service was very prompt, and the food was great! I happen to love fried green tomatoes and corn bread - both are very good here. The fish fry is a winner as are the shrimp and grits. I highly recommend this place!
