We were sent to JR Maxwell's by a local merchant, often a good way to find good food. Located on a main shopping street, the restaurant is convenient, and it does have a good pub atmosphere. We were surrounded at lunch time by locals who were on a first name basis with the wait staff -- clearly "regulars". The place was clean and the service friendly and efficient. While there was nothing extraordinary about the menu offerings, we had some of the best fresh crab we ate in Maine, served generously in a croissant "melt", with light, crispy fries on the side, for a very reasonable price. We would certainly suggest this place for a lunch spot if you're traveling in or near Bath.
