“What a find!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 9, 2013

This dining gem, located on a small side street (Jefferson) in downtown Savannah, was the best stop for us for dinner. The food was superb, atmosphere romantic, staff attentive, drinks great! We throughly enjoyed our visit and will go back again when we return to this southern hospitable dining experience. Chef came out to greet us and spoke of our choices for eating. Wonderful time. You will not go wrong stopping by here.

“LOVELY LUNCH”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 7, 2013

Had an excellent lunch with friends at Maxwell's. The "drunken" tomatos were a hit as an appetizer-little Romas with vodka and salt, sort of a deconstructed Bloody Mary. I had the Cuban sandwich which was a full size meal in itself. The Crab Cake was quite popular and everyone cleaned their plates that ordered that. Chicken breast sandwich rounded out the orders and that was another impressive meal in size and taste. Dessert- white chocolate panna cotta for me and it was delicious!
They have a special menu Thursdays-Saturday for dinner and I look forward to going back and trying it with my husband. The Sunday night "comfort food" offerings sound intriguing.

“On the way to somewhere else-there was Maxwells”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 5, 2013

The hotel deskclerk directed us to a place for burgers and salads, but, in the rain we never got there. Passing Maxwell's we looked at each other and said, "let's go in." We were not disappointed. This little gem is tucked away on Jefferson Street and offers up not just really good food but entertainment as well. We were not only entertained by the "piano-man" but by one of the bar guest who was enjoying the evening by dancing with his lady and singing freely as the music invited.

Dress is as you like, there were two couples who'd just come from a formal function at one table, a mixed dressed group at the bar, and we two "drowned" rats coming in off the street in shorts, shirts and sneakers (typical train cloths-AMTRAK).

“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!
