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.

We've gone by Maxie's many times and finally stopped for dinner last Friday. While there was a quieter side we opted to eat on the noisy bar side. Barely room to walk through but the two of us were lucky enough to get a tall table right away. Many in the bar were waiting for tables on the restaurant side... More

A local recommended this place and we weren't disappointed. Great southern style home cooking, generous portions, but not too big to finish, great cooking, live music on some nights and fab service. Only negative would be that it's so dark it was difficult to read the menu. Having said that we enjoyed the food so much we did go twice!

This is a casual restaurant whose approach to food and service have been consistently excellent. Their seafood is particularly good and often prepared in innovative ways as daily specials. The wine list offers Finger Lakes, US and international choices and is reasonably priced. The service is very speedy, but you are not rushed. All in all, a fine choice for... More

We were a bit nervous about the way we were dressed, but it was fine. This seafood restaurant was quite crowded, and a very tight squeeze, but the food and the service were worth it. One of the best crab cakes I've ever eaten, and delicious cornbread!

we were driving looking for a place for dinner - wow - we struck gold! They had a bar area - a dining area and an outdoor patio. The food was great - we had the oysters as an appetizer and then we split the salmon and jambulya - both were excellent. Staff bent over backwards to ensure a lovely... More
