“Salad bar only decent item”
Reviewed August 22, 2012

I enjoyed the salad bar, but that was pretty much it. Water tasted horrible, and the meal went downhill from there. How can you have bad tasting water?

“Downtown Bastrop Dinning”
Reviewed August 19, 2012

Lovely atmosphere and great food. A part of the historic Bastrop downtown, this Restaurant is in the original butchers shop with some of the original features still intact. Lovely, friendly staff and a great menu to choose from. We will be going back! Thanks.

“Good Company and Good Food”
Reviewed August 18, 2012

My wife and I visited Maxine's on Main while visiting Bastrop and found the food delicious and the music wonderful. The collar greens, though, are different than your usual vinegar based vegetable. They use cream and nutmeg. They tasted fine but was not what I was expecting. The grilled pork chops though were wonderful. If you are traveling to Bastrop, try Maxine's and do not forget dessert. Their pecan pie was delicious.

“Great Food!”
Reviewed August 11, 2012

We have been here many times and the food is always the best. Everyone is friendly and the desserts are great. If you want a great meal you need to try this place out. On week-ends they have live music and it is always good and nice to listen to.

“Good location, good food, okay service”
Reviewed August 5, 2012

Historica building in quaint downtown historic district. Nice, varied menu. Food quality was good (we had the chef's special of pecan crusted Tilapia). There was a band that was pretty good but it was a bit loud--made conversation hard. The waitress was pleasant but didn't bring salads until AFTER our entrees had arrived and forgot the lemons we requested for our fish. Served fresh apple pie (yummy) cold - didn't ask if we wanted it heated. I'd go back but hope for a better waitress.
