“Decent”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 14, 2012

Cool place to hang out. Food a bit pricey. When going at night it's better to go via car/ ATV/ bike...the road Maxwell's is located on is pitch dark- with the exception of the lights in front of it.

“Good Vibes”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 28, 2012

A very friendly place to have drinks and dinner. We have dined there twice with friends and enjoyed our meals both times. Hamburgers, pasta, mussels and fish tacos are great and entrees are accompanied by a delicious large salad. Kelly is a great host making everyone feel very welcome.
