My husband, son and I had dinner here and we were very impressed. All our dishes were great and the service was extremely friendly and accommodating. We'll definitely return next time we're in Ithaca.

When you first walk in you walk through curtains which is kind of different. It's a different atmosphere but the food was really good. Drinks are a bit expensive but I suppose the food is as well. We enjoyed ourselves and will return one day. Seating is very tight though. Your chairs hit the people behind you with very little... More

We were in a small vacation in the Finger lakes and after reading reviews decided to drop in here. Up beat and very friendly staff, bustling restaurant, but bustling in a good. Way. The raw oysters were fresh and tasty and the jambalaya was delicious. Portions were huge though, which I guess is a good thing but I ended up... More

Great oysters and clams (half price from 4 to 6 pm) at this Cajun bistro. The point boys and sweet potato fries were really good too. Terrific service and a nice atmosphere. Worth a try.

Just had dinner at Maxie's for the first time last week. The food was good (portions were very large); the atmosphere is casual. Surprisingly it was quite dark inside (the woman next to us had to use the flashlight on her phone to read the menu), and it was quite noisy and crowded (we were there on Saturday night) which...

My friends and my wife enjoyed the oysters and other sloppy sea food things very much indeed. I had a scallop starter and the main was jambalaya - an excellent jambalaya. I was most impressed by the wait-staff who were friendly, patient and went out of their way to set us up with room to play bridge (yeah, we're old)... More

My family and I don't travelled from Canada and arrived for dinner... When we arrived the wait staff looked up and back down behind the counter, as did the kitchen staff. No one offer us a seat. I went to a chair and asked to sit down... a waitor said sure. We immediately received the feeling that perhaps we might... More

Crab cakes for the win! They were goooood. This place is unique & lovely. Bartender made some great drinks, and our friend wanted to do two portions of port for her drink. The waitress was lovely & accommodating. The food across the board was great. Very good seafood. The cornbread was lovely & a great start to our dinner. There... More

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!
