Awesome Oysters great food.

Went here for the half price oysters hour and stayed for dinner, was not disappointed. They had 3 types of Oysters to sample, I recommend the Naked Cowboys from NY. They came with fresh ground horseradish, cocktail sauce, and a vinaigrette/shallot sauce. Fresh and excellent. Then for dinner I had... read more

I had a black n bleu burger....it was absolutely perfect. We also had oysters, which were on the small side and VERY expensive. I'm use to the oyster prices at our favorite hangouts in the Baltimore area and they are much less expensive. I guess Ithaca is too far from salt water to have those prices. We ate at Maxie's...

We were lucky enough to get in by going early. Parking is sometimes hard to come by, so go early enough to have time to hunt for a spot. I enjoyed the decor and overall ambiance. The food was good, though if I liked oysters and raw stuff I would probably swoon over the place. I definitely enjoyed our meal... More

Always stop into Maxie's for oysters on the half shell when we are in town. They are always cold, fresh and tasty. Very impressive. For those of you who don't partake, there are many other seafood delicacies and meat dishes. Lively atmosphere and excellent staff. See you again soon!

Delicious and funky. Come early for the raw bar. Bloody Mary garnished with a big shrimp was perfect! We loved the jambalaya. Great place with a great vibe!

I enjoy the food at Maxie's. Plus, there's a great atmosphere. I've only been here about 10 times and already know several names of the great staff. The bar has a local feel coupled with the NOLA-style menu (fresh oysters, Jambalaya, and such). They are one of the few (non-fast-food) places that serve late night, so I've ended up here... More

Other reviews and advertising made this place appear as it were fine dining or at least superior food. The food was not bad but was only average. It also was overly expensive for the quality level and experience. It is very noisy, bustling and so busy there are people moving about ones table all the time. It is more like... More

I went with a group and ordered variety of dishes - ribs, catfish, chicken and steak. All were moist, spiced to our tastes and generous portions.

ok. it's time. after multiple regular visits spanning years, it's time to chime in. having moved to ithaca from new orleans, imagine my surprise to find an excellent source of shrimp & grits, jambalaya, fried oysters, po' boys,gumbo, crab & corn chowder, and cajun popcorn (crawfish tails for the uninitiated). the food is fresh, well cooked and authentic. while the...
