“Monday night dinner at the coast”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 November 2013

Food was average and price was good. Have ate here a few times in the past. On Monday nights during the off season there aren't many good places to eat at in Lincoln City. Maxwell's then becomes the best if you want all around foods.

“Lovely Meal”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 October 2013

Four and a half stars to be precise!

My wife and I stayed in Lincoln City for one night in September. We saw an advert for Maxwell's in our hotel and thought we would give it a try.

I am glad we did because we thoroughly enjoyed our meal. They gave us a nice big table in the corner even though it was only the two of us. We both had the fish and chips. Fish came in seven chunks – so different from how it would be served up in the England. And very tasty it was too! Nice big portions. Fries were fine. Also enjoyed the soup and salad which we had as a starter. Nice that it was included in the price.

We found the service very good. It was a lady who served us – unfortunately we did not catch her name. All the staff seemed very efficient and friendly. Very attentive and happy to keep all the drinks topped up. Overall we felt it was very good value for money.

If we were to pass through Lincoln City again in the future we would definitely visit Maxwell's again.

“All that money for garbage”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 September 2013

4 adults, one t bone with baked potato, liver with onions, salmon and veggies, and steak with fries, are you serious... T bone was over done as requested for rare, potato was old and skin was hard as leather, the fries were cold and two days old, the vegetables were all cold, the fish dried out the liver was totally over cooked as it to was like an old shoe. Are you kidding, we only got new fries and they were under fried and white a s snow....the manager wasn't to helpful either.....STAY AWAY FROM THERE............

We are sorry your experience was so bad....since we have no names of people you talked to, we are at a loss of how to respond due to embellishments of your descriptors...two day old, shoe leather etc. This is also your first and only review of anything in this country, so in the future please try to get names of people, or times of your visit so others could roll back the receipts and ascertain who your server was to try to see if anything had gone wrong. We hope you have a more pleasant time elsewhere....

“Affordable food and open late”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 September 2013

Would recommend seafood, very good at fair prices. They serve until 3a on the weekends, a rarity in such a small town. Great service, some of the friendliest we found.
