We finally got a chance to try Maxine's on Shine and it was delightful! Located in the middle of downtown Orlando, amidst small nestled house, this is definitely the place to dine. Parking is basically limited to the street, but certainly worth the hunt. There are tables outside and inside as well as ample seating at the huge bar. Reservations are suggested, as this place tends to draw a crowd. We managed quite nicely, dining at the bar. Starting off with two mimosas which are offered in small, medium and large portions - we opted for the medium and large. I chose the shrimp and grits and my husband had the chicken and waffles. OMG ! Everythig was delicious and the portions were very large. The atmosphere is laid back, wait staff is friendly and diners ranges from singles, to couples with children. Acoustic entertainment also adds to the charm.
