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

Happy hours oysters are from 4pm to 6pm, and totally worth it if you go that time. Oysters are ok, not that fresh. I can accept happy hours price for oyster at this quality, but definitely not pay full price for them. Shrimp and grits are great and crawfish popcorn is really really nice. We love those. Service was nice... More

First time here and it was very good. Plenty of seating both inside and out. Corn and crab chowder was very good but only lukewarm. First time trying gumbo and it was good with a smokey taste. Fried chicken was a fried cutlet which was Beverly good as was the accompanying collard greens. Fried fish was OK, not very hot,... More

It was a weeknight, yet SUPER busy! You could tell this was a great place to eat and drink, as it was full of locals! The service was prompt and friendly and the food terrific! While a little on the loud side, it was a great overall experience.

I've been to Maxie's many times and the food is always what's promised. The seafood is good quality and I love the cornbread they serve (although it was a bit different the last time i went there). The oysters are expensive, so I recommend going for their happy-hour specials.

I've been going to Maxie's for years, and their food is consistently delicious! The drinks are very good too, but the food is delicious and reasonably priced. The shrimp and grits are excellent, and one of my favorite things to get there. The fried chicken is good, but don't forget the tasso gravy!
