Freshest Oysters in Ithaca

Tonight's choices were the Doxbury, Welfleets and Caribou. All are excellent with different taste profile. 50% off on oysters from 4-6pm only. Service was tip-top, very attentive and helpful. Nice beer tap choices. The ribs were excellent as well.

If you like oysters, mussels, clams and shrimp - this is the place for you. If you don't have deep pockets, go between 4pm and 6pm, when the raw bar is half price. Do not go at 6:08pm, when the raw oysters are $3.25 each, and definitely don't order 15 of them along with your other food. Three of us... More

Great food and service. Superb specials and drinks. The oysters are so fresh, you'll look outside for the seaside. I'm not kidding. I sat next to a couple and a business man from out of town who couldn't believe how great this place is.

This establishment has been around for quite a few years, which is an achievement in itself as restaurants come and go in this area due to a lot of competition. The bar side has a great raw bar with a 1/2 price daily (4-6pm) special on oysters and clams. They feature live music on occasion although the 'stage' space is... More

Oyster lovers cannot resist Maxie's half priced oysters from 4 to 6pm. Enjoy with those a delicious Bloody Mary. If you go on Tuesdays, you can also enjoy their Fried Chicken specials. That's what I call a win win situation.

The Crab and Corn Chowder contained only crab fragments. The steamers were good with a nice garlic flavor. The rural Jambalaya was overcooked, but it had ample sausage and chicken; its spice level was right, but the stock was not. We disliked the dark, chocolate-colored roux used in the Jumbo Gumbo; it reminded me of Mexican mole. Skip the "rwb"... More

So nice, we went there twice while attending the Grassroots Festival. Excellent variety of craft cocktails and beers on tap. They serve dinner until 11 pm (and they mean it--that's how we ended up there the second time). Excellent New Orleans themed menu--loved the gumbo, jambalaya and seafood. Having just spent over a week in the French Quarter this tastes... More

What a fun treat! While visiting Ithaca for our one year anniversary, we decided on Maxie's Supper Club to try the creole style food and oysters. The raw bar sampler was fresh and had just a hint of BBQ seasoning on the shrimp in keeping with their culinary theme. We weren't in a rush to order our entrees with the... More

Maxie's is a solid place. Some menu items are better than others, and some deliver Southernness better as well. First off, the environment here is relaxed, the patio wonderful in summer, and the service excellent. Maxie's also has a full bar with both local and regional beers on draught. The food generally tries to be either southern (plenty of fried... More

Had "dinner" Friday night at Stonecat in Hector (see separate review) and it was terrible. Saturday night Maxie's did a great job of making a party of four happy. Great food, excellent variety, friendly helpful service and calm relaxed atmosphere. Try anything and you will not be disappointed. Corn and crab chowder always a good way to start. Good assortment... More
