I've eaten at Maxie's Southern Comfort several times now and every time gets better than the last. If you want the comfort of huge portions, tasty food and freshness, this is your place.

We went in the first time for happy hour specials (not only half price drinks but half-price raw oysters, peel and eat shrimp and fried green tomatoes) but came back for dinner several times.

First, every meal starts out with homemade corn bread and orange honey butter. I have one word for this: ADDICTION. So savory and sweet.

Next up, entrees? You really can't go wrong. Over the times we've been there, I've tried several things including mac n' cheese, shrimp and grits, jambalaya... The mac n' cheese is INSANE!! Gooey, cheesey and huge. There's no way you can pass it up. Everything is huge, hearty portions. I fully recommend the pulled pork or jambalaya. The Jambalaya is packed with seafood and chicken, served over rice, the sauce has a hint of spice but is so savory, you can't stop eating. We also had the shrimp and grits- love the tasso sauce. My boyfriend ordered the bleu cheese burger, perfect for anyone not huge on southern creole food.

I was totally shocked how much they cater to vegetarians too-- they have an entire section of sandwiches and entrees dedicated to the non-meat eater. The tofu is firm and seasoned.

I love you Maxie's! I'll definitely be back.

I went to Maxie's last month and had a great experience. The waitress was really great. She was dressed in a big hat because it was derby weekend. They had some great specials for the occasion also. She was very helpful with the menu, made great suggestions, and was just all around great. The food was really delicious. The appetizer wasn't very big, but the main meal was plenty. It was a great experience, and I would recommend it to a friend for sure!

It was a couple of months ago I was there...but I will never spend another dime in that place again. I took my boyfriend there on a date and wanted to try something that was actually recomended my a hair dresser in Tosa.

I was seated right away...but I don't think anyone told the waited that he had a new table. I waited for almost 10 minutes before he came over to take our order....and the worst part is that he saw us sit down...and didn't apologize for ignoring us.

I was excited to try the fried green tomatos, until they came to the table. For $5 I got 5 of the smallest slices of tomatos i've ever seen. They tasted reheated too. My main course was the crab cakes. They were about $18, which i thought was a little high, but I figured they were fresh. I was wrong again. These crab cakes are the same ones you can get for $3 each from trader joes. The rest of the plate was just rice and some veggies. I have no idea how that was a $18 value.

If you want good southern good...just go to the south!
