I have been to Maxfields many times and have had many lunches I would rate as very good. Evening fare is good to very good it has varied a little. Service is friendly, however if you are in a hurry this is not the place for you. Overall a good atmosphere.

The location is very small town and the back deck is a great place to sit on a warm fall day as it overlooks the river. The service is mostly college kids so don't expect too much. Meals are basic and lack flavor or flair. While not great by big city standards it is a good choice for Potsdam

I have been coming here to take company for a nice meal and all this year it has been fantastic. The outdoor deck this summer was awesome overlooking the river. Have had the chicken wings which were very very good!
I adore the pecan/pear salad with parmesian crusted chicken and eat that every time I go. Others in the party have had fish, meat etc. and all have raved about it.
Wonderful selection of cold beers in bottles and on tap- Good service. I like this place!
Can be very loud in the bar and dining room area...the building is beautiful and old and preserved with the high ceilings....

Our choices are few and far between in Potsdam for good food. We decided to give Maxfield's downtown a try this afternoon for lunch and we're glad we did. The menu was short but had a decent selection of apps, salads, sandwiches, and burgers. The selection of beer on tap was a pleasant surprise. We had the calamari appetizer and enjoyed it. Our entrees were well done too.

The service was excellent with a friendly, helpful wait staff. The prices were maybe a little high, but well worth it for us to be able to count on getting a consistently good meal when we go to Potsdam. We'll be back.

They have an outdoor dining area which looked nice but it was a cool and breezy day. Maybe next time.

classic old downtown bar along with a dining area with good food and service; try the draft beer and steaks!
