We had a great dinner and watched the first boat out on the ice cold water. This was my first time at Maynard's. I cant wait to be there in the summer with all the boats and excitement going on. The good is good I had a simple stir fry but it was good.

Came to eat and drink after visiting Prince's home. Was not disappointed! Great happy hour specials (although you MUST sit in the bar area for these specials...boo!) but we made due and ordered about everything on the specials appetizer menu and stayed until our reservations. We laughed and enjoyed our time. Great food options at dinner. Definitely a must visit... More

Wait times can be long in the summer to sit on the deck yet worth the wait. Food choices are familiar with occasional changes to the menu. Happy hour menu is satisfying. Frannie's Salad is my go to.

My wife and I had a most enjoyable dining experience. The food was excellent and our server, Jesse, was extremely attentive and pleasant. The next morning, I discovered that I had left my hat at the restaraunt. I called, and Holly not only located my hat, but volunteered to personally drop by the post office to mail it to Missouri....

We love the steak bites and waffle fries. It's such a great value at happy hour. We had prompt, friendly service and the food was hot and tasty! What more can you ask for?
