“Nothing exciting.”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 19, 2013 via mobile

Although the burgers are great, the other dishes are pretty average. Not bad, but just average. Priced fairly. It can get fairly loud at times depending on the time frame. The service on the restaurant side is absolutely horrible. I've tried sitting in several different sections on various visits to experience other servers but I keep getting the same experience. One particular server has absolutely no personality, never smiles, and isn't very attentive. With all that being said the "bar side" has great service and the couple times I've sat at the high tables I had great experiences. I've given Maxie's many many opportunities to impress me, but I think I'm done.

“Food above that of a bar & grill!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 13, 2013

Good service and delicious food that was unexpected both in available dishes and quality. Presentation, too. This was a little something more than a typical bar and grill but the prices were entirely reasonable. Very good.

5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 31, 2013

Love this place being a local, we have aplace to hide from the tourist, The beer is always ice cold and the drinks are really good. The food is average but there soups are to die for.

“Soft Crabs in North Carolina”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 22, 2013

I had great soft crabs in Maryland when I live there. Maxies has one of the best soft crab sandwiches I have had since Maryland. Not easy to do good soft crabs. You need to give them a try.

“Too loud - Beef on Weck is way better at The Darling House”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 16, 2013 via mobile

Bad imitation of the Beef on Weck from the Darling House - fatty, not enough Caraway Seeds and table salt saturating the role. It's a great sandwich when done well. Restaurant is clean, but had the fake smell of candles - why not let us smell food? It is uncomfortably loud. Not a terrible place, but there are too many nicer places nearby to spend my time and money.
