I have been to Maxis a few times. The food is outstanding. Service all around was pleasant. Everyone served with a smile and goes above and beyond. I would highly recommend Maxis.

The food was fantastic! We enjoyed jambalaya, bbq salmon, and a banana mud pie. The only downside was that we were thirsty the first half of the meal. If ordering cocktails, be prepared to wait a bit.
