Took my daughter here for her 17th birthday treat before we went to a show. The welcome was lovely and the Waiter very attentive. They brought balloons for her birthday on the table the food was excellent and they brought my daughter a sparkler in a fancy shake for dessert. Wow thankyou so much x

Overall very good experience. Food wise, the burger was great. Only the fries could be improved. They were a bit too salty and not thick enough. Otherwise nice ambiance, maybe a bit too dark especially down the room

This was my second visit to this great restaurant within three weeks. Friendly and professional staff, the food was very good. Love the atmosphere. The next visit will be an early evening one where we will spend time at the bar first before eating. I have told so many people about this place. Peter, Barbara, Joan & Henry

Came here for my birthday with my boyfriend and had a wonderful time. From start to finish the service was excellent, very attentive and friendly, happy to recommend drinks and all round lovely. The food was Incredible, beautifully presented and tasted delicious. Very good value for a great steakhouse- highly recommend the fillet steak- well worth the extra few quid. The staff even brought me my ice cream with a candle and “happy birthday” written in chocolate and sang to me. All round an excellent place to go for any occasion or just a Wednesday evening. We loved it that much we went back for lunch a couple of days later before heading back to Manchester. Will definitely be on the list to visit next time we go down south.

It was my birthday celebration and everything was really nice: I found balloons on our table when we arrived, and at the end of the meal I got a free delicious milkshake! The burger was really nice and the prices fair. The service was perfect as well. I will go back for sure.

Vincenzo was lovely! Really welcomed us along with the other servers but the food let them down slightly. The wings were really dry and the ribs were stone cold.

Maxwells was really bad. All the food was cold and burnt! We had air con blasting out on us all night that we asked to turn off a million times. I understand the waiters get hot but what about the people who have to sit eating their cold food? I wouldn’t go back and I definitely don’t recommend.
