Stopped in Maxwell's and loved the place. The only downside was they ran out of some of the specials very quickly. We sat at the bar and had a great time with the staff and the owner. Really good food!

The restaurant was cozy and romantic. When making the reservation, I wanted to try somewhere new for my birthday so we decided to go here. The food and service was good.

We went with friends whose dining tastes are usually quite different than ours. We each found an entree that suited each of us and which we each enjoyed. Great service. Would return.

This has become one of our top 3 picks in Savannah for a dinner out. The service was thoughtful, prompt and conscientious, the food was excellently prepared and came paced to accommodate our wish to savor. Our first time here, we already felt we'd been in before and will certainly be back many more times. If you're a wine lover,... More

My husband and I have a new favorite place for dinner in Savannah - Maxwell's! Quaint, small (40-50 people), white tablecloths, outstanding food, good service. I had salmon and my husband had the special, a 12 oz ribeye. Salmon - No fishy taste, but "blackened" with crispy bottom & moist flavorful taste. Ribeye had wonderful flavor - tender with delicious... More

I go here often for lunch. The price is amazingly affordable for what high value you receive. My number one favorite is their Cuban sandwich, exquisitely prepared every bite is savored. If asparagus is in season get that as well, I have tried to emulate the preparation method but Maxwell's always tastes so much better. A perfect site for a... More

Two couples enjoyed dinner at Maxwell's for the first time. With the intimate atmosphere of a small well-designed restaurant Maxwell's has great food (we had the grilled salmon and a ravioli special) and enjoyable music provided by Chuck on the saxophone. The owner makes you feel completely welcome, the bar is cozy, and the ambiance is great. If you are... More

Scallops with fennel puree were excellent. Cocktails were out of this world. I came home and recreated a drink with jalapeño, Herradura tequila and Cointreau. It is awesome...try it. We had the misfortune of walking in 30 seconds after a bridal rehearsal party of eight had been seated. Normally, this could throw a small restaurant into a spin.....but our server... More
