The food! It was delicious and perfectly plated. I travel alot for work and this place is a diamond in the rough. I can confidently say that I had a better meal here than at the flemings I ate at the other week.
We had a very enjoyable evening at Maxwell's. Food was delightful, service was good, and really no complaints. They do have a notable wine list. It would help if the servers knew more about the wines so he/she can answer simple questions. For Fargo, it is probably one of the best places to dine. Be better if they had table cloths on the table to add classiness to the place.
I found this gem on open table and it was fantastic! Great food! Great service! Awesome atmosphere and hands on ownership! Highly recommend it!
Delicious every time. Sauces so good you will want to lick your plate.
We were thrilled by our experience at Maxwell's. Celebrating our anniversary, we wanted something special. We certainly found that at Maxwell's. Not only was the food delicious, the wait staff was extremely well trained! We will definitely be going back to Maxwell's!
Birthday dinner out
Yum! Everything was delicious! Lavosh was best I have ever had.
Love to Dine
From appetizers to dessert, the experience and service were exactly what we were expecting.
Great meal and service
Enjoyed the fresh halibut. Both the wife and I very impressed with the meal, service and dining surroundings. One of Fargo's finest for sure.

The meal was very over priced & the potatoes were very strange. They turned around how mine & my husbands steaks were to be cooked. Mine was rare and his was well. 2 different cuts.

Great food, the grouper I ordered was the best fish dinner I have had in a long time.
Maxwell's is probably my favorite place in the Fargo area to eat. The food is always excellent and the service is always great. The atmosphere is one of the best in Fargo, always quiet and great ambiance. I would definitely recommend.
EXCELLENT as always!!!

Great food and wait staff. Would have liked tablecloths and newer silverware to complement the $35-87 entrées. Cocktails were well made and wine list had some unique options.
Fantastic food and service!
Fantastic food and service!
Excellent food and wine list with service to match. Surprisingly more expensive than I expected for the area.
day late Valentines day dinner.
Good meal, good portions, expensive, had a $100.00 gift card and still did not cover meal and I ordered the cheapest meal (stuffed mushrooms) had a few drinks. Beautiful atmosphere, lots of business dinners going on and a few couples. Would go back but possibly try bar menu to save money.
Great date place
I've been waiting to dine at Maxwell's since many friends and family members rave about how fantastic the food is. I ordered the midwinter margarita which was yummy. The spinach salad was delicious. Elk was well seasoned and cooked to perfection and the roasted potatoes paired well. My husband ordered the strawberry mimosa sorbet which was refreshing! I ordered the limencello creme brule and was amazed. The service was friendly and helpful with suggestions. The ambience was fitting for date night. I definitely would like to return soon!

Your 87 dollar steak, good food, price is out ragious .
I and my wife went to Maxwells, last Saturday. From outside the restaurant looked "closed", as many in Fargo do, we found. But once inside, the place looks very accommodating, comfortable and pleasant without being overdone. We ordered bacon wrapped scallops for appetizer. They were great. The sauce is so tasty. Before that we were served homemade bread which was very good. I had the Tenderloin while she had the Rib Eye. But were delicious. I had the cheesecake and she had the creme brulee. Hers was great, my cheesecake was not memorable.
Excellent Dinner, but a little noisy.
Dinner was excellent and an excellent experience. It would have been an awesome experience with a little less noise. At times it was difficult to hear each other right across the table.

A Fargo Find!
Superb experience. Wonderful food. Friendly front desk and wait staff. Far more than I would have expected in Fargo.
Extremely good & innovative menu
I came to Fargo from New York City on a business trip and had found Maxwells on Open Table. The service was extremely good. The decor and art work are interesting but unobtrusive. The meal was superb. I started with prosciutto wrapped scallops topped with small pieces of lobster in a succulent mild, red curry. My second course was a medium rare elk in a pepper, cherry sauce. And I managed to spare a tiny bit of room to have the cappucino creme brulee. The chef is from North Dakota, and the restaurant is managed by a terribly charming Mexican, Ramon Sosa, originally from Cozumel who has a degree in tourism management. The ladies room was stylish with nice floral accents and some lovely French hand cream. Lots of nice details everywhere.
Perfect Date Night!
The hubby and I went for our 3 wedding anniversary. I made reservations on Open Table and asked to be seated in the bar because we like a more energetic atmosphere. The hostess was very polite and had a table reserved for us in the bar! Wait staff was excellent. Very knowledgeable and had great suggestions and pairings for us. Since it was a special occasion we were in no hurry and they did not rush us. We ordered one appetizer at a time with a bottle of wine before moving on to the main course. The staff was also great with the wine! The food met our Standards! Bacon wrapped scallops, Seared Ahi Tuna, Elk Steak and Lamb Chops all cooked perfect, and the Latte Creme Brule with an espresso cookie, a great finish!! We will be back soon!
If You Like Seak..This is It
Treated our sister and her husband here as the final dinner out together before flying back to New York the following day. We were seated right away and our server was friendly and knowledgeable about the menu. Our steaks were tender, succulent and delicious. Would recommend this place to others for a group function and as a nice couple date or in our case a double date!
Amazing food; friendly service!
The food is amazing! Try the Amish chicken, it is simply delicious (juicy, tender, well seasoned); the caramelized sweet potatoes are so good it's just like dessert :-). LOVE this restaurant!
Had the Blackened Walleye, not what you would receive in the south but remember, you are in North Dakota. The service was wonderful. Found the noise coming from the bar area distracting but it sounded like they were having fun.
A really great place in Fargo. Our appetizers and entrees were presented well and prepared perfectly. The bread pudding is REALLY good! A casual atmosphere with high-end value. The service we received from Ken was professional, attentive & friendly. Their wine list was not up-to-date and after 3 tries we were able to enjoy a wine of the same vintage as shown on the listing.
Great dinner and brunch in Fargo
Maxwells is one of my favorite restaurants in Fargo. The food is excellent and the staff friendly and helpful. They have a great wine list, and the bar management is wonderful. Their brunch is also fantastic! They have plenty of salads, warm entrees, and in addition to the mandatory omelette station, they feature made to order crepes.
