Maybe the day when I went it wasn't the best... It was a little dirty, food under my table, the service was great and good very simple. They have a really good corn bread that day... But my impression about how dirty was that day it doesn't make me want to go back there...

Wow, who'd have thought that the Shrimp and Grits would be authentic AND the best Gumbo this side of New Orleans! A little off the main restaurant row in Ithica (Cornell & Ithaca College students keep most places very busy, Maxie's service is swift and well paced to accomodate hungry young people. If you're into Oysters on the half shell... More

Ate here on Halloween. Ended up being waited on by Col. Sanders himself. Our Bus boy was a scarecrow. Loved that the restaurant went all out for Halloween. Had oyster Po boy which was delicious. Cocktails are tasty, the vibe is fun and great location near Cornell.

We ate there Saturday night with a little apprehension about long lines because of Ithaca College parents weekend. If you walk down, as we did after Oktoberfest, you will pass Saigon which we thought would be less of wait. A 20 minute wait there. We entered Maxie's and as luck would be they had a table for 3 ready. The... More

The food was excellent. But calling ahead to let them know you are coming does nothing to hold your place in line. I was told it only "helps them to plan". It didn't benefit me, since we waited our turn from the time we arrived, like everyone else. Not a good place to eat if you have the least bit... More

Maxie's came highly recommended and it was Sunday which is a plus due to the live music. So we tried it out. Good idea. Great food (piggy platter and gumbo) really great bartenders and the host for the evening is by far the best I've encountered. Go in get a drink eat some great food then dance it off. Thanks... More

Maxie's Supper Club is, undoubtedly, one of the best restaurants in Ithaca. I love coming here on Tuesday Nights for their delicious fried chicken dinners. Reasonable prices, great food, good service...it's always a fun experience!

its like going to New Orleans without leaving town, top notch raw bar as good as any on the coast, their Jambalaya is a must have with great corn bread. as others have said crowded, noisy but i think that's the great part of their vibe. The staff is on there game never missing a beat definitely check it out.
