“Great breakfast”
Reviewed October 14, 2013

Stopped by Maxi's by meself and had a great breakfast last week (a Sunday). It was quite busy but was able to procure a seat at the bar with no wait required. The frindly waitress had a coffee and mimosa in front of me promptly!

Opted to have the huervos rancheros and hash browns.Tvos were quite filling and were made on a crisp frehly fried taco! The home fries were nice and crisp. Food and service weeimpeccable. Convenient too! 100% recommend it for breakfast!! The lunch menu looked good too. (Next time I guess!).

“Great find!”
Reviewed September 27, 2013 via mobile

Stumbled upon Maxi's off the highway. The food was delish and came out fast. Right down the street from Ben & Jerry's factory tour so it was super convenient.

“Bad service has derailed too many visits”
Reviewed August 30, 2013

Visited four or five times between 2008 and this past winter.

I remember first visiting this place several years ago with my brother, and having a basically good experience; like a lot of Chittenden County breakfast/lunch spots, it's got a somewhat creative menu with some eclectic touches, like Potatos Verde with green chilis. Pretty typical prices, and a nice atmosphere with a lovely bar and backbar and lots of room in the dining area.

Unfortunately, the creativity in the menu isn't always matched by quality - more than once we've gotten cold food or had mix-ups - and especially, the service, which was all right that first time but has been spotty, forgetful, slow and/or disengaged most of the other times we visited. The last time, this past February, was the last straw with uncorrected mistakes and not one coffee refill over the 75 minutes we were there. They weren't even particularly busy! I'm not living in Vermont anymore, but my brother and his family are, and our experiences here have been enough to guarantee no more visits from them unless the service - and, doubtless, the management - becomes a whole lot more attentive.

“Great for breakfast, until 2:30pm”
Reviewed August 25, 2013 via mobile

We stopped in at noon for breakfast after a night of camping at Waterbury Reservoir.

The VT Hwy 2 breakfast was excellent! Perfectly cooked eggs over medium was the first surprise. The service was great, and the waitresses were amazing and attentive.

I look forward to more time in a bar stool at the counter here.

“One Of our favorites”
Reviewed August 22, 2013

We always come here when we are in Waterbury for the delicious food and friendly service. My daughter has multiple food allergies and they are very accommodating. Try the smoked Gouda Mac & Cheese! A very good value and a great place for families.
