We visited Maxie's on a Friday night. We called in advance to get on the list, but we were told it would be another half hour. We decided to stay anyway, and the wait turned into only about 10-15 minutes. We were seated and served relatively quickly, but our table was near the door and we felt a chilly breeze every time someone came in (which was frequent!). The server explained the menu very well, including seasonal items that would change soon. We ordered the mahi mahi special, plus the fish stew. Both meals were really delicious. We had also ordered soup, and we were a little surprised when the main courses arrived and we had not been served the soup yet. The server apologized, and brought the soup a few minutes later. The server also forgot to bring the wine that I had ordered to go with the meal, so that came late too. At least the server did not charge us for the soups that they brought late.
They seemed to be a little short-handed, so it may be that our experience was isolated. I would give them another shot before saying that you should expect less-than-stellar service.
This is not a good choice if you are looking for a quiet, romantic evening together.
On the bright side, the food was really good, the atmosphere busy but fun, and many people seemed to be enjoying their evening. Prices were very reasonable. We will probably go back, but plan our timing a bit better (if that is possible).
