Starters were OK but the Main dishes of Steak and Ribs were poor in quality, chewy and did not taste very good.

Booked here for our 34th wedding anniversary as we came here for one of our first dates. The staff were really sweet and brought us complimentary drinks and puddings. The atmosphere is fun and vibrant and there are plenty of cocktails to choose from. We had a fun evening.

We arrived early for our meal. To which they were happy to seat us, not sure if this was due to it being a Monday evening. It was my husbands 50th Birthday meal. And they couldn’t have more of a fuss. Lovely food and plenty of it. Had a very enjoyable evening. Would definitely go back again

I had booked a table as a birthday treat for my granddaughter, she was surprised and delighted with the balloons at our table and the delicious Mars milkshake with a sparkler on top! It made the end of what had been a great day in London, absolutely fantastic! Thank you to everyone who helped make it so special for us.

Great location, tasty food, good value & excellent service.
We were trying to find out the cup final score & couldn’t get a signal so our waiter went & checked for us.
This is smaller than the previous location but still the same great atmosphere.

Overall, Maxwell’s is a great place to go with friends if you want to have some no frills burgers/food.

Burgers weren’t really cooked to our requirements (we asked for Medium but the end result was very much Well Done) but that shouldn’t stop anyone else giving this place try

Not as big as the previous location, but an enthusiastic and friendly service with good food, and plenty of it. The team provided a (free) "shake" as it was my daughter's birthday which was a nice touch, especially as she's not a kid anymore!! One thing, common to most British restaurants: why don't you provide iced water on the table when first bringing the menus; it costs nothing and cleans the mouth ready for the real drinks!! Thanks for a good evening.

We had booked a table for my husbands 50th and where we sat it was quite tight and it was very cold as we were under an air conditioning unit. One of the starters, bbq ribs were coated in far too much sauce and could not eat them as it was too much and not very nice.
Two burgers were ordered for a mains course and they were completely burnt underneath and again had to be left as they were inedible. We didn't both ordering any puddings. It was a shame as we had eaten at Maxwell's previously in the old restaurant and the food was amazing and we were very disappointed this time.
