Three of us dined last evening at Maxwell's Steakhouse. We started with a delicious cheese plate and wine - which led to another bottle of wine ; ) The men opted for filet mignon, and both raved about it. I had the trout which was so yummy. The wait staff was excellent and refreshed out glasses of water without asking.... More

We visited Maxwell's recently and had a great meal. Our fillet was cooked to perfection and would melt in your mouth. The crab cake was very good. Nice atmosphere and waiter. I would highly recommend for a nice meal if you are visiting Crested Butte.

This is a lot of money to pay for an average steak and slow service. It's possible we hit a bad night. We have found enough good restaurants in CB that we won't attempt a second visit in the near term.

All I have to say is to get the filet as it melts in your mouth!!! We always visit Maxwell's when we go to Crested Butte.

We visited this spring durning the "Big Air on Elk" event so they were slammed. We sat at the bar an enjoyed a fabulous ribeye and a couple drinks. The service was great even with a huge crowd (and sitting at the bar) the food, drinks everything was really good.

I've eaten here several times. With the new chef they have back there the food comes out faster, tastier, and all around a solid meal. Maxwells has come along way since they opened and the owners have as well. I would eat that steak Mac and cheese and those delicious mussels everyday if I could!!!

We were a party of 5 with 8 o'clock reservations on a Monday evening. We had a nice large table near the fireplace and enjoyed prompt and friendly service. I had the pulled pork stuffed, bacon wrapped chicken, which was excellent. Two companions had the steak salad, which was large and tasty. Our table had one filet which was also... More

Wonderful family reunion/birthday dinner Sunday night (3/2/14). Great atmosphere, conducive to visiting and relaxing, and everyone's meal was fantastic. Great service too.

I've eaten here four times over a few years--three times for company party or invite; once by choice (it was off-season, and Maxwell's was one of the few places open). The food in general is OK. However, they seem to have issues with steak temps. It's inconsistent, leaning toward more underdone than you'd expect of a steakhouse. On three of... More
