Supper Club and Oyster Bar, in the heart of the beautiful
Finger Lakes is a great place to be! Maxie's is all about fresh
fish and oysters and truly traditional New Orleans food! We
do feature delicious vegetarian, chicken and red meat offerings
too, for those who want to diverge from the sea, so don't be
shy. (Our customers regularly come back for the best burger
in Ithaca.) Our menu is Southern-inspired and highly addictive,
we must warn you! It's comfort cooking of the highest quality.
We change our menu seasonally to reflect produce and seafood
that is in its prime; however, slight menu changes take place
all the time. Additionally, our blackboards feature creative
nightly specials and fresh shucked oysters and clams. And we've
got spice! Creole and Cajun food isn't shy on flavor. It's tasty
how to really LIVE IT UP in New Orleans, as you may know. And
that's what Maxie's is all about. It's festive in here! FREE
live music every Sunday and Tuesday night is a standard and
every night IS A PARTY! Yet despite the fun, you won't find
a more attentive and professional place to eat and drink. From
hosts to servers to managers, Maxie's is dedicated to you, the
guest, and your good time. Belly up to our bar and you'll see...
Our bartenders pay attention to you!
of bartenders, we like our liquor, just like they do in the
Big Easy. Maxie's features an excellent selection of handcrafted
beers which never stays the same, a wine-lover's wine list and
a slew of southern specialty drinks like Hurricanes and Mint
Juleps made better than the traditional ones.
more could you ask for? Maxie's is OPEN LATE! We believe in the
important relationship between drinking and eating (and we love
to stay up late!), so we serve our ENTIRE menu practically until
You can come in for appetizers or desserts after a movie, a full-on
wine, oyster, and grilled-fish, 4-course kind of dinner, or just
end up satisfying a spontaneous case of the munchies with some
of our "Late Night Bites," cheap little eats served
along with our full menu the last two hours the kitchen is open
each night. But we're here late and we NEVER close earlier than
our stated hours, so GET IN HERE!
"Contrary to popular belief, Ithacans do not go to bed early."

else is Maxie's about besides great food, drink, atmosphere
and convenient urban hours? We can only tell you that you can
feel good about dining at Maxie's because we believe passionately

Supper Club and Oyster Bar sources only the freshest fish and
shellfish, using Steve Connolly Seafood direct from Boston. Steve
Connolly Seafood purchases its fish directly from the fishermen,
buying only the choicest fish. There is no middleman, so your
seafood is not delayed by further purchasing, holding and reselling.
Our fresh fish is simply harvested and shipped to us within 48
hours of receipt at the dock, packed in ice from the time of catch
to service. Temperature-controlled warehouses and refrigerated
trucking assure your fish comes in at its absolute freshest. Steve
Connolly is the only seafood purveyor in the country that employs
its own microbiologist to ensure peak quality, and it also has
a team of chefs that bring greater awareness to the products.
We pay top dollar for the best seafood available and then extra
to ship it to Ithaca. This is Maxie's unyielding commitment to
serving wholesome food at what, in real terms, is the best value.
Maxie's uses local and organic ingredients whenever possible.
We are committed to small-scale, family farms where passion and
care is taken in growing your produce and meat. Consequently,
your food tastes more flavorful and assures a healthy physical
and economic environment for our region. We use seafood and produce
in its prime to keep quality up and prices down. Our menu changes
to reflect the influence of the weather on what naturally grows
and on what foods we crave each season, while still maintaining
our classic Southern roots.
