First visit was a weeknight happy hour. Easily got a table. Service was excellent. Music not too loud. Drinks were good. Had the salmon for dinner and it was delicious. Definitely will return!

We stopped in before the Stone Arch Fire Works. Very friendly staff that gave great advice on where to watch and what to eat. Would definitely stop in.

Maxwell's is a small little place on a corner. In the spring, summer and fall you can sit outside although it's actually right next to the sidewalk. Inside it's a well kept place with quick service and friendly wait staff. The prices aren't high and...More

Good Bar and burgers. Friendly staff, Servings are ample and the beer selection is great. These guys turned me on to Surley Furious.

I was there during a Happy Hour and found seating to be fast and courteous. Beers were reduced along with appetizers. Had eaten here years ago and had remembered the wings and waffle fries to be top notch so I ordered those...Wings seemed much more...More

We stopped here for dinner and had a great experience. Outstanding beer selection with local brands featured prominently. My husband had a sandwich and I had fish and chips. Portions were HUGE! And tasty. Great service from really nice, knowledgeable staff.

This place is a good old fashioned "stand by" for a place to grab lunch or dinner on the east side of downtown near US Bank Stadium. It's pub style food in my book but they deliver on good american style burgers and crosscut fries...More

We stopped here before the Metallica concert and had the wings and a couple of burgers. The food was served hot, tasted great, plus they had pitchers of beer reasonably priced.

This has become our spot for drinks and appetizers after work. If you arrive before 6 pm they have happy hour specials. We always order chicken nachos to share and a round of drinks!

We live close by and stop by for the happy hour specials. Smoked dry rub wings are awesome. Cheesecurds are really good too.
