We were visiting Michigan City staying at a B & B. The owner of the B & B suggested Maxine's for dinner. The downtown atmosphere and inside decorations along with great food is worth the visit.

Maxine's is wonderful! This is a great place to go with friends or on date night. Lunches are fabulous. This is a very comfortable place to go for food or just drinks!

We were here as two couples, the menu is a little expensive but the food was delicious. The jazzy atmosphere was wonderful. Great for taking someone on a date. Would come back again!

Though we do not come to the Michigan City area very often, and then usually only to make a quick stop at the large Lighthouse Place Outlet Mall, eleven of us in our extended family decided this year to vacation on the Lake Michigan beaches. It was a good choice -- we had lots of fun -- but our trip... More

Stopped in on Wednesday for a quick drink and starter. It was early and only a few other diners were in the restaurant. Cocktails were generous and prepared perfectly. We decided to split the flatbread special which had ham, pineapple and mozzarella cheese. A perfect summer combination. Great service and interesting old building.

I ate what I could and left what was browned in plane site. She said nothing when she took the plate. The cod special I ordered was very bland and the batter soggy as if it was... More
