“Wow!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 5, 2013

Went to Maxwells on Friday night. Had the weekend special, veal with a pepper cream sauce with risotto and a wonderful cabernet. The food was by far the best I've experienced in Savannah in a long time. Our server was very attentive and really made us feel special. They have live music on the weekends, a nice gentleman that plays piano and sings. He is really good and plays a variety of songs that everyone can enjoy. After dinner we sat over at the bar and enjoyed cocktails for a while. In all our total experience deserved no less than 5 stars! Thanks Maxwells for making our night out a memory we will cherish for a long time!

“Good for a romantic occasion”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 4, 2013

Nice, friendly and causey atmosphere. On a Saturday night they had live music which was very good, but a bit load if you were there to talk a lot or business dinner. Food was very good and the drinks had plenty of alcohol.

“Alittle pricy, but the food is worth it”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 1, 2013 via mobile

This is a good place to take a date too or just couples. Taking your kids is not the best choice. My daughter didn't have much to choose from.

Service was slow. But still did a good job.

“Service and food have gone down hill...”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 12, 2013

Totally bummed this little gem was a disappointment during our last visit. Nearly a year old, we had better food and service last year, after they had only been open for a few weeks. We enjoyed the

atmosphere, the owners, and the fod so much, we ate there two nights in a row last Febuary. However, after a terrible dinner, along with bad service, on Febraury, 1st, I doubt we'll be returning. There are too many other great restaurants in Savannah to have another bad meal at Maxwells. I will say, the owner gave us a few drinks on the house, but it took nearly 2.5 hours to get our dinner. Yikes. So sad, I was your biggest fan, Maxwell's!

“Good food, good service”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 4, 2013 via mobile

Went here on my birthday. Small and cozy joint. While the menu is somewhat limited, we really enjoyed everything we had. The avocado egg rolls were fantastic. Will definitely go back next time I'm in savannah, would love to try their brunch.
