Great Food, Gets Busy – Maxwells near the Mwtrodome has great food, but can be very busy during Vikings games. If you want to hang out with other fans and share a pre-game beer and apps, this is the place to do it. If you prefer a quieter spot, stay away before, during and after Vikings games.
Love this place! – I have been going to this place for at least 5 years. I mainly go for the fantastic happy hour specials. It can get busy during the later happy hour, but you will have no trouble finding a spot from 4-6pm. Service is always good and the food comes out really fast. Love the wings! If your looking for a great pub with awesome food, this is it!
Maxwell's is alive and well! – Just ask the kids and their parents who packed the place for the state high school football tournament this weekend!
How long does it take this site to acknowledge that this place burned down. I mean, it was good, but it no longer exists.
Reopening Sept 1, 2008 – Its hard for me to want to tell everyone cause I want to keep this place low key so I can get a table and great service as always - but man - Maxwell's has the best buffalo wings in Minneapolis. Better than Runyons. Better than Shorty & Wags. Better than BW3s. Better than Sweeneys in St Paul. Great waffle fries with season sour cream. Oh man. Great Burgers. Great specials. Good selection of brew. Did I tell you I am a professional Buffalo Wing taster. Ohhh mannn I love Maxwells.
Ice Castle, not a restaurant... – So I went there expecting lunch food and maybe a pretty large beer selection, and then I saw that a bunch of hoods came by and trashed the place. Unless this is a new word-of-mouth campagin, I really don't understand. The design of the ice castle was very interesting...so I went to Bobby and Steve's gas station for some chips and a hotdog and made a day of it. All in all, this place was pretty awesome.
Maxwell's is closed as of Feb. 2008 – Maxwell's suffered a major fire in Feb. 2008. It is not known if/when it will reopen. Probably a good idea to call before you attempt to visit.
Pretty good food – Food is pretty good especially the buffalo wings and fries. The j. Tuna is pretty bad though. Stay away from it if you know whats good for you.
Great food, great service, get the nachos – Maxwell's is by far my favorite bar in Minneapolis. Their food is excellent, especially the $3 burrito (wednesday special), all you can eat fish (friday), and the nachos. The specials are great and the staff is always friendly and very prompt. It's tough to get a table before/after a Vikings/Twins/Gophers game (especially when the outside is closed), but it's worth the wait.
This Washington Avenue eatery is a hideaway for many of Minneapolis' finest. – In Short
No need to worry about safety in this pub--it's teeming with off-duty cops. Perhaps they also appreciate the tin-ceiling ambience and service that make everyone feel like regulars. Burgers and chicken sandwiches share menu space with beefy Reubens and Philly steak sandwiches, plus walleye and several pastas. Locals walk the beat here daily, but it's especially packed when there's something going on at the nearby Metrodome.
