SquareMeal Review of Maxwell's Bar & Grill

Over forty years after opening its doors, Maxwell’s now offers a wide-ranging stateside menu of buffalo chicken wings, huge Caesar salads, New England crab cakes, club sandwiches, sizzling fajitas and hickory-smoked ribs, as well as signature burgers and steaks – plus a raft of calorific desserts including chocolate brownies and apple pie. There are breakfasts, ‘Sunday best’ specials, keenly priced theatre deals and kids’ menus, too – all in tune with the venue’s upbeat, chatty, feel-good vibe. Maxwell’s also hits the button with its buzzy bar, where hip bartenders dispense vintage cocktails alongside global wines, US craft beers and more besides.

Hadn't been to this restaurant in a while and the friend I was with had never been. She thought it was a bit "touristy" when we first arrived, but liked the atmosphere and the fun/busy vibe. Fortunately we were savvy enough to realise that the portions were pretty big, so ordered something to share rather than completely overeat and, more importantly, knew we would be able to fit in dessert. We used a Gourmet card which gave us 25% off the bill never to be sniffed at! Despite this, did think it was a little overpriced, but all in all we had a great time, which was down to the food, drinks, lively atmosphere and company!
