Everything was perfectly prepared, and the oysters were very fresh. Don't go if you want to have a conversation, but do go if you... read more

Surprised by the many vegetarian options at this supper club. We sat and enjoyed a glass of wine, uninterrupted. Then, we split a small salad and were amazed at the large size that they call

My recent visit was disappointing. Our server was preoccupied with larger tables. I ordered the Jambalaya, which was good, but only had 5 pieces of shrimp in it. Whole big plate of food, at almost $20, and only 5 pieces of shrimp.

Oysters, Gumbo, Po Boys; they are all here at Maxie's. There are no reservations taken and it is a bit crowded but the atmosphere is great the servers friendly and the extensive menu pretty authentic. We had Po Boys (Blacken Catfish and Fried Oyster) and while not exactly what I remember from New Orleans, hmm they were good. Check out... More

I love Maxie's for raw oysters and clams - great atmosphere at the bar and live music - one of my favorites. Best Jambalaya in Ithaca as well, and cornbread!

I usually only patronize the raw bar side but have had the opportunity to once or twice sit in the restaurant portion. No complaints. All good. But I do love me some raw oysters and clams and boiled shrimp. Half price during happy hour which is good because you certainly don't want to pay full shot on a dozen raw... More

This place is good for many reasons. The staff is obviously well trained. The food is incredible. Its a seafood place with unbelievable steak quality. The shrimp and grits with Tasso Ham sauce are as good as what I had in Charleston. The drinks are great. The raw bar has multiple choices and is very fresh. They serve late and... More

Birthday surprise with friends and great food, cant ever miss with this one. If you have kids, hit Wednesdays for 2.00 kid night and sample the chicken fingers from scratch...my son... More

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 the Crab Cakes, my wife had the Jambalaya, my daughter... 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...
