The reservations app is awesome. Table was ready n waiting. Delicious food as usual. Only complaint was it seemed hurried. Our server took our order, n everybody but him delivered the food n drinks. I was still chewing the last bite of each plate when the next one hit the table. Not very relaxing.

Raw Bar was excellant. Main courses were a little spicy. My wife had the pulled pork platter. She has a (Glutin / Spice intolerance) and had a reaction to the spices in the meal. The Manager provide a plate of plain grilled chicken for her. Thank you.

The staff is fantastic! The food was delicious! But it was so noisy, we're not sure we'll be back anytime soon. It was really hard, even for our small party of 3, to hear each other as the dining room filled up. And why keep the music on, when it's already so loud? Also, we were there as dusk settled in and night fell, and our table got really dark. Such a shame, when everything else about Maxie's is such a treat.

We had a great time! This was our second visit. During Covid we came and had dinner and we’re curious what it would be like if everything was back to normal. Our second visit was awesome. We actually were sat at the same table and had the same waitress (whom was fabulous). The food was heaven and the drinks were on point. We’ll definitely be back!

We're from Chicago, and visit Ithaca to either drop our daughter off school, or pick her up. Our first visit to Maxie's (a year ago) was excellent; so we returned. We loved it the second time, and now the third. The atmosphere, service approach and food are as close to world class as you'll get in Ithaca. Bravo to the staff & operators for their excellence!

We both had a great dinner, great service, amazing opportunities to choose adjustments to each of our tastes and desires. The prices were a bit high for some items, such as shucked clams; we love oysters, clams, shrimp, lobster, etc. The shrimp dinner was tasty; the french fries were amazing, and I ate the cole slaw. More than one person helped with delivering our orders.

Wow, we loved your restaurant and the staff. From the minute we walked into the bar for drinks and raw clams everyone who greeted us was happy, energetic, and accommodating. We had dinner reservations and the meal was delicious, the staff continued excellent service in the dining room as well. It was a fun, delicious experience.

We had a great time on 7/7 at 5:45 pm. I forget our server’s name … Scott? Daniel? I feel terrible that I don’t remember. Either way. They suggested and/or encouraged us to order what we were curious about and we had an absolutely amazing meal. Thank you!

What a treat to eat at Maxie’s again. The oysters were really the best EVER, and the Arctic Char was excellent. I understand the gumbo was as well. Our wait person kept us well supplied with cornbread and drinks. From the warm welcome at the door to the last bite, Maxie’s outdid itself. We really felt appreciated.

heard good things about maxie's so thought we would check it out and glad we did. i wanted to try something new so i ordered the jambalaya, sooo good. I didn't finish it all (boxed it) so i could save room for desert, a chocolate banana coconut pie! My family ordered the fried chicken dinner and fish dinner and fried oysters. we all left full and happy. our waitress was very friendly and helpful with suggestions. definitely recommend
