Maxies does a nice job with their bar food. Good portion size, excellent quality, speedy service. The beer list is nice too. It's not a huge list, just well-rounded. Service is good, although there have been a few instances where the server forgot our appetizer or something. No biggie. The luck comes because they do karaoke 4 or 5 nights... More

A great, local place to kick back and relax over a nice drink with friends and family. Daily specials, wide assortment of beers including local fares, generous (think HUGE) portions. You won't leave hungry.

Hubby had a steak and fries, I had a Cape Cod wrap served with tempura fried green beans with a killer dipping sauce! The servers were pleasant but a bit slow. I'd recommend it to anyone.

My friend Dan Z and I went here at opening time which was 11 am . We sat first on the outside tables which was a poor choice since the wasps/bees were hitting our table. We moved closer in towards the inside but the wasps/bees increased in number. Not good. However we moved inside and we both had the half... More

Its smaller inside than I thought but they had tables available (for 4) Waitresses were very friendly and prompt. The food was excellent. We got an order of cheese fries that were excellent and the burgers are probably bigger than... More
