A hot night in Ole Othaca

Let the good times roll in the fabulously fun Ithaca version of New Orleans supper club. The service is friendly, casual, and still attentive. We had Melissa, who had a big tattoo and an even bigger smile. She made several excellent recommendations. We had delicious cornbread, friend oysters... read more

I love raw oysters and get them whenever I can. There are very few places in Central NY that offer them. So when needed to go to Syracuse I did my research and found Maxies. Not only did they have oysters, they were half off during happy hour. But when I got there it was sticker shock time. $3.25 each... More

First, the staff is terrific! Very welcoming, charming. The kitchen doesn't open until 5pm and we were a little early, so we started with raw oysters. They were delicious!! We each had a bowl of crab corn chowder that was also fantastic and we shared a basket of fries. Everything was yummy! Because of the bartenders/waiters friendliness and great attitude,... More

We eat at Maxie's almost once a week and it always delivers excellent food and service. Love their New Orleans style selections--next best thing to being in New Orleans. Very accommodating to altering preparations if someone has food allergies or just wants their dish less spicy. Desserts are excellent, although we're generally so satisfied (aka - pleasantly stuffed) we often... More

Someone suggested we try this place and I'm glad we listened to them! The food was excellent. I had spicy shrimp and grits. It was the best grits I've ever had. I wanted to try their fried green tomatoes...I'm sure they don't disappoint. Next time! The atmosphere was good, busy on a Friday night but we didn't have to wait... More

Average food, average service, noisy environment. Went for dinner with Friends on a busy Ithaca weekend. Every other place had a line except here, now we know why. Food was bland, portions small, and pricing a little on the high side. Not quite enough Staff and although they were hustling, they were always playing catch-up. Probably would not return unless...

Make sure you arrive hungry; Maxie's portions are generous and delicious and you'll likely be asking for a take-home box.

We both like to come here - the food is great cajun or southern style - I love the oysters and jambalaya - they give you lots of food and everything has been tasty. However, the place is small, noisy and crowded, I was sandwiched in and three people had to move in order for me to get out. That... More

We took a mini vacation to the Finger Lakes region. I did some restaurant research prior to going, good food is always part of our vacations. I found Maxie's Supper Club and thought it sounded great. Well, it was. We purchased a bottle of wine, each had the jambalaya, served with very good corn bread, and had the key lime... More

My daughter and son-in-law are usually spot on when picking restaurants in Ithaca when we come to visit. This one was just meh. Not great-not horrible-just not memorable.
