We have read other reviews that said the service was lackluster. We had terrific service. At the end of the meal, they even gave us some 'to-go' pumpkin cookies. The jambalaya is good for Milwaukee but not New Orleans quality. The mahi-mahi special with the...More

Servers were not especially friendly, certainly not what one would think of when thinking of "southern hospitality." The food was mediocre at best. Not impressive or worth a second visit

The vegan jambalaya was awesome and the cajun fries were crazy delicious! A great place to go for vegans, vegetarians and meat-eaters alike. I was worried it would reek of seafood, but I never smelled it at all. Great atmosphere and great food.

Maxie's Brisket should be dairy-free. However, the Corn & Arugula Salad has a buttermilk dressing, so that should be substituted. Please make your server aware when you visit, so they can answer any questions and direct the... More
