After seeing "Little Shop of Horrors" at the Hangar Theater we were in the mood for a late night dinner. Maxies serves dinner until 11 which was why we decided to give it a try. Although this restaurant has been around for years and we often visit Ithaca, this was our first time at Maxie's. The pulled pork was tender and flavorful but isn't in BBQ sauce so if you like it that way you have to ask. The BBQ beans were so unique in flavour that we found ourselves trying to figure out the recipe with every bite and I vowed to find out what their secret is! The fried oyster po boy was filled with lightly fried tender oysters and unadulterated, no fancy sauce to mask the fresh oyster taste. I admit though that I did add some of the sweet pickle slaw that was served on the side which gave it a nice crunch. Add great and friendly service, a warm atmosphere and good music; this was a very pleasurable outing!
