Went to Maxwell's recently for trivia and expected good food but it seems as though the quality has declined. To start, we all ordered food, including appetizers and everything took forever to come out (except for someone who ordered later than everyone else at the table, they got their food at least 10 minutes before everyone else). The appetizers came... More

Terrible service. Mediocre food. Do Not Go. They can't get anything right. Really...Hoboken is filled with good places to go. Busy skip this one. Terrible. Terrible. Terrible.

Went yesterday after a waterfront festival and the first time since it reopened. 3 adults and 2 children. It was early so only a few folks were dining. Little has changed in the front room...didn't get a chance to check out the back. Quickly seated. Took quite a bit of time to have our server greet us. Surprising since it... More

This place is quickly becoming one of my favorite spots in Hoboken. First, their Happy Hour cannot be beat, half price drink, ANY DRINKS. You're not restricted to house wine, or well drinks etc. Whatever you're drinking is half price during happy hour. Plus they have half price pizza nights (I think that coincide with football but I'm just focused... More

Ate here on Sunday for the first time with my family. Great location, friendly staff and the food was excellent. We had the black bean burger and the lentil ham soup. Food came out on time, presented nicely and most important, tasted awesome. I highly recommend Maxwell's and I will be back to try another menu selection.

Did I say landmark?

Wen there last month.. it was late but fortunately the place was not too crowded. The drinks were pretty good. But the ambiance is even better. We were in the room towards the front. I guess the place is still good after reopening although I had not been there when it was under the old management.

We stopped in for one last drink and an app the weekend before they closed. I can't say enough good stuff about this place, and it will be sorely missed as a music venue.
