Maxine's On Shine is a gem! We have visited twice, once for brunch and once for dinner...both times were very enjoyable. The food was very good...for brunch we had omelettes, which were delicious filled with greens and cheese. The mimosa was also so refreshing. For dinner we had the crab cakes... read more

Super overrated. High prices for average food. Drank about 2 sips of a skimpy pour glass of wine, told the waiter I didn't prefer it and he said it was because it was the "house wine" and it was inexpensive. A. How about serving a decent wine, especially if it's a "house wine" - the name literally implies the restaraunt... More

I stopped in, for the first time in quite a while, on a Friday eve for a quick bite at the bar. As it turned out, Kurt (an owner) waited on me. He offered me the regular menu, a prix fixe menue, and took my drink order. I ordered a brisket burger, which was very good. A couple sat down... More

I have given this restaurant several chances to change my mind but once again I left with a terribe taste in my mouth and that was the food. Probably the worst meal I've ever had.

They have chicken and waffles a few different eggs Benedict dishes along with salads, a great burger, and some specials. I had the quiche special. Everything was great. There was... More

I was searching for a local spot away from the attraction area of Orlando. Maxine's more than filled the bill. Located close to downtown, in a residential neighborhood, Maxine's is full of personality as well as smart food. I happened upon a night they were offering 3 courses for $25. great food at a great price. Homemade cream of asparagus... More

Located in a neighborhood setting which makes it a little hidden gem. Service is always great, fun individuals who know their wine and food. Live music is always playing but for a quite more intimate experience we always like to sit outside under the lite patio. Wine & cheese plate is the perfect start!

My friend brought her own wine and they were gracious enough to accommodate without a " cork-fee" ! We started with the mushroom soup which was unbelievable! My main course was the kale salad with grilled chicken and my... More

One of my favorite restaurants in Central Florida; dinner and Sunday brunch. Be sure to make reservations, enjoy the great food and wine, and the company of the owner Maxine and her husband.
