We were out for a walk one evening on a week day. We decided to stop in and have a little something. The people working that night were friendly and attentive without being intrusive. We noticed no less than five people with guitars walking past our table heading upstairs. And we heard live music in the background. Nothing about this... More

Recently ate here for the first time with friends on a Friday night. Were seated on the ground level at a nice table in the front in the main bar area. The atmosphere of the place is stellar and the service was very friendly and very good. This would be a great place to meet for drinks or bar food... More

Who expects a perfectly cooked, Southern Style Easter Brunch in bucolic Bucks County PA? But that is exactly what we received! Our tremendously helpful and patient server, Albert, made our ordering so easy as we weren't familiar with many of the dishes on this Cajun gem of a menu. The children were even thrilled with their chicken fingers while the... More

Formerly B. Maxwell's, this restaurant is excellent. I preferred the former decor reminiscent of Sherlock Holmes and Victorian/Edwardian England, with etched glass and glass tulip lighting, but the more contemporary current decor is engaging, too. The bar is fabulous, and the dining room is friendly to both couples and families. The food is fresh and delicious.

My husband proposed to me at Maxwells 28 years ago so it will always have a special place in my heart. New owners have done a great job with renovations and we love the bar scene upstairs! We like happy hours here with great food and live music. They even have a very small outdoor patio upstairs. We will return... More

Wow, what a range of reviews this place has garnered. Some of these almost make me feel guilty for "thinking" we had such a good meal here, but then I thought about it - what WE had, WAS really good, great actually! Yes, it ain't cheap. I don't believe the place is trying to be for everyone, but the evening... More

Can someone help me to find a place to eat at that cooks with love? Another place that gets away with murder. Are you serving food or are you trying to impress with your alcohol selection. Overpriced bar food cooked improperly, disguised on the menu as something special, and over priced. It seems to be the new standard for success.... More

You know, it IS a business, and their goal is to make a profit. HOWEVER - there is a difference between profit and GOUGING. Our server rattled off the list of wines available by the glass. We recognized one we liked - and knew it retailed for about $10 a bottle. So - our reasonable presumption is that we would... More

If you ever told me I would actually like brussel sprouts I would say you are crazy, but now I am crazy about MOM's Shredded Brussel Sprouts. Plus, that is not the only dish they have enhanced to make absolutely addicting.

MOM's has it all. Excellent food served in an historic Doylestown storefront building. The best craft beer selection on tap and in cans in the area, and live music upstairs several nights a week.
