Maxwell's Bar & Grill

Squaremeal Review of Maxwell's Bar & Grill ?

Brian Stein starting selling burgers and grills in Hampstead back in 1972, before moving to this prime site right on Covent Garden Piazza in the early 80s – long before the trend for such places had overrun the West End. Forty years down the line, 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.

A Fun Night Out

Feb 2016

Editor's pick 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...
