The best and freshest potato pancakes around! Dining area big and spacious but expect a wait on weekends.

Eggs benedict was served on an untoasted, stale, cold, fake English muffin, minus the Canadian bacon. Kept looking for the meat but it wasn't there. Server was top notch, Jewel was just wonderful but the food was tasteless slop, carelessly put on a plate, disregarding the whole concept of Eggs Benedict. Will never go back.

This is a great place! We enjoyed breakfast there this morning before heading back home from Milwaukee. The servers are all hard workers and the food is yummy and plentiful. Our coffee cups and water glasses were kept full (which is very important) and the food was served quickly. I would highly recommend you try it!

Been here several times over the last year or so. Not sure I am going back. Waitstaff really tries but I think the kitchen is out of control. Last three times food has barely luke warm. Have asked for crispy bacon - it is on our bill as crispy bacon and it comes out cold and limp. I used to... More

We ate at Maxfield's Pancake House for Breakfast. First off, their coffee is delicious, and they have a wide variety of flavored coffee creamers at the table. It was delicious, and awesome not to have to ask for it. I ordered the blueberry pancakes with whipped cream. They were packed full of blueberries, and the pancake was fluffy, and cooked... More

For the price, I am not sure what people expect.... Everything we had (4 different orders) was tasty with very large portions. The chocolate chip pancakes were exceptionally good. Wait staff was consistently asking if we wanted more coffee or refills, so we have no complaints whatsoever. We did note that by 9:30 AM on a Sunday it was packed... More

First time trying this restaurant for breakfast. The blueberry pancakes had very few berries - could count them on 2 hands. They were huge but not particularly tasty. The bacon was so undercooked that we could eat less than half of it. The menu & our waitress did not agree on what came with the breakfast vs. what was an... More
