This was a nice restaurant with a variety of items on the menu. The Food was good. A bonus was the Frigate Ale By Geary's made for J R Maxwell, and only available at the restaurant/pub.

We strongly recommend Maxwell's for lunch. My wife had a predilection for fish and chips so I said Maxwell's. Parking directly in front on a chilly Monday noon; we were seated promptly. Server Tinne appeared straightaway, orders taken, and lunch appeared without delay. My wife's...More

The food here was just ok. We won't be back, and we wish we would have eaten elsewhere. The staff was friendly and the service was quick, but the food was bland and disappointing. I could have cooked better food at home.

Although we were only in the area for a short time we visited the restaurant twice, lunch and dinner. The food and service were so good we saw no reason to go elsewhere. Recommended.

We were told this is where all the locals go. We met another couple who are regulars at this restaurant. I wasn't impressed at all. The clam chowder wasn't very thick and very little flavor. I had the haddock daily special with crab and Parmesan...More

We went to J R Maxwell & Co. based on reviews in Trip Adviser and we weren't disappointed. First, our server Tyler was excellent and then the food was just awesome. We had the Clam Chowder as a starter..... Awesome. Then we had Fried Haddock...More
