We were in town going to a concert in Fargo and just found this restaurant online and were we glad we did! This restaurant is beyond fabulous! I had the special of the night, swordfish and my husband had the beef tenderloin. Both dishes were unbelievably delicious! We would go back to Fargo, just to go to this restaurant in... More

We met up with a dozen colleagues to eat at Maxwells. The setting is subdued but welcoming. The meals included unique chef creations and were well presented. Service was excellent and food was served hot. The only shortcoming was the consideration for those of us who like our food more plain with fewersauces, etc. my swordfish was tasty and very... More

My Wife and I celebrated our Anniversary by trying Maxwells, which we had heard many good things about. We arrived and decided to go in a little early and sat in the bar for a drink. I had Fargo Original beer and my Wife had a Martini, I am a big fan of The Fargo Brewing Company so I was... More

First time that I have been there. Service was good and the ambience was like being in a friendly neighborhood. A little pricey but I have been in pricier places. We had the Mahi Mahi and Buffalo meatballs as appetizers. The only complaint that I have about the appetizers was the small quantity in relation to the price. I was... More

My husband & I have to stop by when in the Fargo area just so we can get our Maxwells fix in. The food & drinks here are simply exquisite. Our favorite appetizer is the ahi tuna. You just have to try it & you will soon be hooked (no pun intended). I had the lobster fettuccine which was rich... More

Normally we have a great experience at Maxwells. This time not so much. The food was good, as usual. But on this hot August day the air conditioning was not working well. Normally we stay for hours, not on this night. The management should have offered a free drink or something. Very disappointing.

Whether it is sitting at the bar with a glass of wine and a meat and cheese plate or a corporate holiday outing or something in between. Maxwells always seem to deliver. Three things that come to mind. Consistency, the food and presentation are always good. 2) Service. During the course of the evening a number of the staff will... More

2 favorites were the scallops appetizer and banana and chocolate chip bread pudding. Dinner portions were a bit small but the presentation was great. A bit pricey for ND. They get their prices similar cost to a meal in Boston. Ambiance is okay but typical restaurant nothing funky in the decor.

I went with my family to eat dinner last Saturday night and we were first seated and greeted right away. We had five people in our party, celebrating our parent’s anniversary, and it was our first time eating at Maxwell's. You can see the cooks prepare your food as you walk by. Our server (I forgot her name but I... More
