This place made out whole trip to Ithaca!!! We loved everything about it. Upon our arrival the Hostesses were extremely friendly and brought us right to a seat outside, we were watered immediately and our server (Jonathan) was over in no time. Our server was extremely knowledgeable of the food which was helpful as I didn't know what some of... More

Nice restaurant with a lively vibe and good for families. To start we got the Supper Club Salad to share and it was delicious. It was dressed nicely and a perfect way to begin our meal. For entrees, my husband had a po'boy and I had a half portion of the shrimp and grits. He enjoyed his, though he felt... More

I had the shrimp po boy and a cup of chowder, my friend had that shrimp and grits. The poboy definitly needed some work as it was all bread and very little shrimp. The chowder was good but a bit spicey for a chowder. The shrimp and grits my friend got was apparentlly very good (her words). There were leftovers... More

As a Brit who spends most summers in Ithaca I like nothing more than passing the afternoons in Maxie's whilst waiting for my old university friend to finish her work in the Cornell labs. I like to have oysters on every occasion, usually washed down with a Bloody Mary that is always made to my liking - strong and spicy!... More

if you're in the mood for just drinks, the bar is great, service is outstanding. The food is pretty tasty, lots of variety for everyone; the oysters are just awesome, you can just sit at the bar and have some with your drinks. Come for a quick bite or for full dinner, you'll enjoy the atmosphere, the Tuna is outstanding,... More

I have been to Maxie's several times traveling from the Binghamton area. I mostly come for the oyster Happy Hour. I have always found the oysters to be superb ! Our last visit we each had a sampler plate of the oysters and shared one of the specials, shrimp and andouille sausage with beans and greens (outstanding!) and a menu... More

After seeing "Little Shop of Horrors" at the Hangar Theater we were in the mood for a late night dinner. Maxies serves dinner until 11 which was why we decided to give it a try. Although this restaurant has been around for years and we often visit Ithaca, this was our first time at Maxie's. The pulled pork was tender... More

Everything was OK. The Jazz/eclectic atmosphere is probably the strongest attribute of this restaurant. Otherwise, the food was the same as many other BBQ restaurants. Gumbo was barely warm and bland. Ribs and sides they were served with were pretty bland as well. Service was good. For a small town, this place is OK but you will easily find better... More

Maxie's is on State Street in Ithaca. They're just around the corner from Island Fitness and across the street from Cayuga Cyclery, so it's not unusual for me to be in the neighborhood. Even though I've lived here for less than a year, I'll bet I've been to Maxie's at least 10 times: usually just for a hard cider or... More

Decided to ride from Watkins Glen after wining the west side of Seneca lake. Saw an advertisement for Maxie's. When we entered 4pm when they opened we were told only raw bar until 5pm. That was very disappointing and unexpected. They did have soup and the crab corn chowder and Gumbo were very good. Our bartender was so friendly and... More
