The owner is completely offensive.... Gave a customer verbal abuse after overcooking her $50.00 entree.

I'll admit right off that we were probably spoiled by eating at Machiatelli's the night before. The food was okay at Maxwell's - how can you mess up a steak? But the service was slow and not well informed. The young waitstaff needed training in some rudimentary lessons about restaurant work.

Thank you so much for your comments on your recent visit. I purchased the restaurant August 1st and greatly appreciate the feedback. The food quality and consistency has been my first battle to tackle but know there is much more. Is there any chance you could give me specifics of the steak and service. I do apologize for the level... More

...and the peach cobbler was world class. OK so for $53 the beef had better be special, and it was. Most prime rib is sliced from a rack of ribs, but this was an individual piece cooked over a charcoal/mesquite grill. As such, it was just fabulous. The other members of our group had the filet and their comments were... More

Ribeye was ave but cooked just right. Atmosphere is nice but not warm and inviting. Garlic mashed potatoes were watery and lifeless. Service nice but avarage. Chartuterie plate was uninspired. Missed the mark.

I have to say I was not impressed with Maxwells. Because the hardwood floors have no carpeting and the bar is in the center of the dining area, the noise level is really uncomfortable. The service was average but you had to shout your order to the server to hear over the din. In addition, the room was hot and... More

Had dinner with a large group in the back of restaurant. Servers and kitchen managed serving our group very promptly with accuracy and hot food. Inside of restaurant got quite warm because it was packed with customers.

It's unexpected to find a truly fine dining experience in the small town of Crested Butte, but this is notable. Reasonable prices but the plates could have appeared on the Food Network. I had a steak and my son had New Zealand venison and both were exceptional. The chocolate cake was also amazing. Great service and atmosphere. There was a... More

My wife and I have visited Crested Butte before but we have never had dinner at Maxwell's. We were craving steaks and after doing some research we found this restaurant. We thoroughly enjoyed our experience at this restaurant and would definitely return and recommend this if you're looking for a great steak. To start, the cooks did an amazing job... More

After an excellent steak dinner, the waiter presented me with a bottle of wine for my birthday - that's a first!

Friendly and attentive service; rustic atmosphere is you like dining with dead animal heads mounted on the wall. Very high priced steaks that aren't consistently cooked to order: ie, well done is sliced up and fried on both sides of the slices. Good drinks if you get the right bartender, otherwise request a remix. Nice wine list. The food is... More
