We decided early on Friday afternoon, that we wanted to go somewhere for a Fish Fry. After reading the Internet list of best fish fries in the area, we decided to on Maxie's. Husband and son had been there earlier this year and had mentioned how much they enjoyed the fish--but had a long wait, as they had arrived after 6 pm on a Friday night. We arrived just a few minutes before 5 pm and were seated immediately. Lots of people enjoying the Happy Hour at the bar and lots of open tables for dinner--still available. We were given water upon being seated. Really didn't look at the menu, as we all had pretty much decided on a Fish Fry. They offer a Friday special of lightly breaded cod with Cole slaw and french fries for $14.95. The waitress brought us a basket of cornbread with whipped butter after we ordered. Everyone thought the cornbread was very tasty. Shortly after finishing the first basket of cornbread, the waitress brought us another basket of cornbread. No one touched the second basket, as we didn't want to spoil our appetites on bread. Our diners were then promptly served. Three big pieces of fish--displayed nicely covering a dish of Cole slaw and lots of brown french fries. The tartar sauce was homemade and tasty. The Cole slaw had too much mayo for my or my daughter's taste, so my hubby and son enjoyed our portions. The fish was exceptionally light, not greasy and very flavorful. I could only eat two of the three pieces of fish and offered the third up to the guys, which was split by both of them. Daughter's third piece went home in a doggy bag, as well as the second basket of cornbread. My only complaint is that all of our fries were a bit over fried and didn't look that appealing on our plates because they were brown.
Wait staff was very attentive. Since the fish was what we came for, I am giving the restaurant a very good rating. If the fries were better, it would have given it an excellent. We probably should have told the waitress on her numerous check ins--with us, that we were a bit disappointed in the fries.
