I researched this place through trip advisor and I was blown away! the service was extremely knowledgeable about everything on the menu, especially the wine selection. I do have to say it was a little pricey but it was worth it. My girlfriend and I had a perfect seat with candle light and roses on the table. It was not... More

We had a great time having Dinner at Maxwell's. The food was really very good and so was the wine. My date and I were both quite full when we left. Our server graciously helped us secure transportation back to our hotel and the service overall was excellent. Specifically the food - as some have already said, there was a... More

Went there for Valentines day dinner and found it very romantic. Roses on each table with a lit candle. Disappointed to find they had a 4 course pre-set menu that was not stated when I made the reservations. Price was $75 per person plus tip and tax added coming out to $96.60 a person plus your wine or drinks. Understanding... More

My husband and I spent several days in Savannah during the holidays. We went in for lunch and were not disappointed. The restaurant is beautiful, the staff very friendly, and the food was excellent. So good that we decided to go back to Maxwell's for dinner. Dinner was just as good! This restaurant is done so well that the only... More

Maxwell's is a warm and cozy little restaurant with fantastic food and the best service I've had in years. I was amazed what the chef was able to produce from the very tiny two man kitchen. Our meals were delicious! The bartender, Kevin, was knowledgable and extremely friendly. The chef came out and spoke with us for a bit. It's... More

Romantic little spot with amazing food. Lobster cocktail & avocado egg rolls delicious! Lamb chops cooked perfectly and scallops are like butter. Fantastic dinner!!! Found it on open table looking for somewhere to eat near our B&B. Took a chance and canceled our reservations at Elizabeth's where the corkage fee is $35, by the way. At Maxwell's only $10. Beautiful... More

This is one of the prettiest restaurants in Savannah, however............... The Christmas decorations ( great florist) and ambiance are to die for and they have a wonderful bar and very good drinks. The food leaves a lot to be desired. We were shopping in downtown Savannah and had wanted to check out this restaurant for quite some time. My wife... More
