Part of our mission is to support local causes. These are some of our favorites.
We’ll be out at the Tosa Farmers Market Saturdays this summer (along with Blue’s and Story Hill BKC), serving pancakes, fried eggs over grits and pulled pork sandwiches. We’ve partnered with Valentine Coffee Roasters to sponsor the tunes again this year! Click here for a schedule of music at the market.
We’re proud sponsors of the Tosa Tonight 2019 Summer Concert Series. The free music series features concerts by local, national, and international groups on eight Wednesdays this summer. Check the full Tosa Tonight schedule here. We’ll bring the food and drinks; you bring your dancing shoes.
We are proud sponsors of public radio in Milwaukee. We love good music and information, and we believe in the power of community-supported radio. We are partners with 88.9 Radio Milwaukee, Milwaukee Public Radio at 89.7 WUWM and 91.7 WMSE. We sponsor Radio Milwaukee’s online streaming and its 414 Music.fm All-Milwaukee music channel.

More about Maxie’s
Maxie’s opened its doors on May 5th, 2007, serving Southern-inspired “from-scratch” cooking. Maxie’s is located in the old Vespalec family grocery store and Gerry O’Brien’s Meat Market at the corner of 68th Street and Fairview Avenue, immediately north of Interstate 94 and the 68th Street off-ramp. Maxie’s offers full-service bars and dining on two levels.
Dinner is served until 10 p.m. Monday through Saturday, and until 9 p.m. on Sunday.
Maxie’s Southern inspiration includes the “Low Country” cooking of the Carolinas, Creole and Cajun cooking of Louisiana, traditional slow-smoked Southern barbeque, and Southern comfort cooking of all kinds. We feature a raw bar serving fresh oysters and shrimp flown in 5 days a week from some of the best fish purveyors on the east coast. Our bar offers a hand picked selection of quality wines, micro-brewed and imported beers, and top-shelf liquors. Click here for the latest drinks list.
Maxie’s serves from a whiskey list of 125 selections, including rare and ultra-premium bourbons and ryes. Maxie’s opens 7 days a week at 4 p.m. featuring Milwaukee’s best Happy Hour with $1 fresh-shucked oysters!
