Something about the breading makes this our favorite fish fry in Wisconsin. I think they must add a splash of hot sauce to the thin and crispy batter. French fries are outstanding, too. On a warm summer evening it's nice to sit outside under an umbrella table and watch passerby walking their dogs. Charming and always great food.

We went for a late lunch and to watch a football game. Good food. Good drinks. Great atmosphere for watching games with all the TV's and having a drink. Has a hometown feel to the place. However, the waitress forgot about us and we had to go to bar to replenish our drinks.

Had dinner here in the middle of the week. Great Burger and beer selection. One of those great WI local bars. Just a little too much GB packers on the walls for this Chicago Bears guy. ;-)

Driving through Cedarburg on a football Sunday afternoon. We searched for a "sports bar" kind of place. Drove past Maxwells (located on a corner) and it appeared to be what we were looking for. Not overly crowded, but had it's share of Packer fans in the bar area. We ate at a booth away from the bar area. There are... More

Tried to watch the Badger game today but servers were too busy texting and finally told us we could order at bar if we wanted something. Too bad, seems like a decent spot

Stopped for a bite after a day of shopping and we all thought the food was good! At 5 pm the place was busy with a leftover Badger football crowd, but we could still carry on a conversation without yelling at our table in the bar. Service was fast and the server was friendly and prompt. Chicken tenders, chicken wings,... More

I love going there and everyone is friendly, service is great and food is pretty decent. It's a place where you just feel at home and happy. They have good specials, decent prices, and the bartenders are kind and know what they're doing. I'm always up for a good game of bar dice there! You feel safe there, and personally... More

Food was hot and very tasty. Reminds me of a up north bar. Only thing I would complain would be $3.99 for a cup of clam chowder was high but it was good. I'll be back.

The first sign that we had where we should have been concerned, was the "coke" products were Diet Rite and RC cola. Nice Packers memorabelia on the walls, but the booths looked worn and torn, and the place advertising on mats had local advertising on them. Wood could have used a nice paint job or something to make it a... More

They still are NOT buffalo wings (having lived and eaten there) but they certainly are the best alternative in the Cedarburg area. Stop by Tuesday, Thursday, and Saturday for the Wing specials ($0.30 per wing)
