We wandered in to Maxine's by chance on our first night in South Beach. It was located just a few blocks away from our hotel and we were attracted to the outdoor seating area. I had chicken tacos and my boyfriend had some kind of burrito. Both were excellent. Our mojitos were also great but a little expensive. The only... More

We were waiting about 20 mins for a table and then the service was quite slow as they were very busy, but all the food we have tried was delicious.

We went really late after a long flight landing at 10. We were staying at the Catalina and got there around midnight. Very busy and the servers were slow to respond and serve because of the amount of tables being covered. They were upfront about it.

Went here on our last night in Miami. Food was excellent and plenty of it. A band were playing which added to the ambiance. Reasonably priced and nice staff.

We decided to eat here on our first night because it was close to our hotel. Tables are outside and allocated or reserved by a member of staff. No table was available but we were offered the next available table (15-20 minutes). We had a drink at the bar (inside) and were told she would come and get us when... More

This was an extremely busy restaurant every time we passed. We were staying just round the corner so that was quite frequently. Glad to get a seat and ordered a drink pre meal. But then half way through my burger the waiter told me he was going to have to settle the bill for the drinks which was a nuisance.... More

This place has a wide variety on their menu! My best friend had the lucky Buddha beer and we HAD to go back a second time so that she could have that same beer! The food was great and so was the sushi!

Great location, right across Collins Ave from our hotel. Large menu and friendly prices. Some of the best french fries we have had in years. If you like grilled cheese sandwiches, try theirs. Nine grain bread, cheddar cheese, tomatoes, and caramelized onions. Yummy. Burgers have 10 oz. of meat. Both times we were greeted by Adam, the manager. Treated us... More

Seems to be THE place for breakfast along Collins in mid Miami Beach. Sizeable portions at a fair price, but the service was lacking. We may have had a rookie server, but it was slow. Had to ask twice for water, and for milk for the coffee. The topper was after ordering waffles we were informed that they were out... More
