Maxie's is a unique place. Some people love it, others hate it. Sometimes the live music is awesome, mostly its average. It's better to go at night, as during the day you'll be able to see the grunginess of the place. One of their best dishes is the shrimp with grits, due mainly to the sauce they use. They use...

Don't miss this little hot spot! Lively bar and food is delicious. Please try the catfish, it is amazing. Crawfish is a great appetizer!

This cozy little restaurant offers a nice menu of seafood choices. A great starter is the "Cajun Popcorn" - fried crawfish. The "Shrimp & Grits" dish is very tasty. As is the "Jumbo Gumbo." Remember to finish off your meal with the heavenly "Key Lime Pie." Quite an enjoyable meal!

We started out with the fried green tomatoes and oysters. I had the pulled pork platter and my husband had the fish and chips. The food was amazing! We love southern, cajun/creole style food and this was as good as many of the places we have eaten at here at home in NYC

Took the family of 5 (3 teenage boys) and everyone had a super meal. The wait staff was friendly and very helpful answering our questions and even making suggestions. Would definitely recommend this to visitors to Ithaca.

We really enjoy Maxie's. This is our second time and the food was great. The oysters were just as good as the famous Oyster Bar in NYC! We can't wait to return! The service is impeccable.
