REVIEWS OF Maxwells - Restaurant & Bar IN North Dakota

kenneth rocheleau

Fantastic food and great staff who a very attentive and friendly and keen to help. Food is spendy obviously but totally worth it because you won't really find much else like it in town.

Jeffrey Nasers

I had a blast there Saturday night. Had a mixup with martini, but the server was gracious and knowledgable. Our group tried different plates and everyone was very happy. Strongly encourage the lava cake. It was delicious.

Nick Olson

Excellent food! Great atmosphere and friendly wait staff

Amber Binderup

What can I say, everything was absolutely wonderful! Service was top notch, our cocktails were some of the best we ever had, and the food was out of this world!!

Katie Bradshaw

Great place for a quite happy hour or special occasion. They always make you feel extra special!

Sarah Kakamor

Always a great experience

Tara Hjermstad

Excellent food, friendly and efficient service, and a quiet, private setting. Great place to bring your family, significant other, or business contacts. Maxwells is my go-to for every occasion!

Brian Marron

Can't say enough good things. Food was excellent, service was exceptional. Big enough list of craft beer to find good pairings with each course. I had the prime rib and portabella chowder, followed by the peppered elk streak with port wine cherries and chocolate chip banana bread pudding topped with bananas foster and vanilla bean ice cream. Update: Came back for the Fathers Day Sunday brunch. Excellent deal, I highly recommend it on any Sunday!

Jason Cardinal

I absolutely love this place!!! The Food is to die for and the service is the best in town.

Kyle Kastet

Hands down one of the best places to eat in town!

Found this place after a mishap with another restaurant. Food was so good. Waiter was very accommodating to our gluten allergy.

Kirk Anton || Heat Transfer Warehouse

Always a great meal the fish is great and have never had a bad meal.


Good customer and really friendly service. The food was overpriced and on the menu it says gluten free options available but I didn't have much of a selection... it was something new to try. Go early. We got there late and the cook staff was ready to walk out the door. And I believe that was the reason for the limited menu options.

Rob Mayer

Great food and service.

Drew J

Had the elk steak and ordered it medium rare. It was amazing!

Jennifer Foster

Someone recommended Maxwells, so my husband and I came down from GF to have our anniversary dinner. It was incredible- the best fine dinning we have had in ND. We started out with escargot and the prosciutto wrapped scallops in a lobster cream sauce. OMG, mouth watering! The food was phenomenal and the service was just as spectacular! Looking forward to the next time we can go!

john boese

The place is average, my food was over cooked

Curt Sinness

Great food, wonderful service, highly recommend!

missie franek

Absolutely amazing!

don blevins

The best wine list in the area. Great food and service.

Glenn Clemenson

Great food and service.

Doug Norris

Very nice service. Top notch ambience. I will say though, Maxells is ridiculously over priced. The food is great, but you could get the same meal at Granite City for half the price. You're paying for the service, which truly was fantastic.

Sarena E

Atmosphere is beautiful, and food was stellar! I wish I could give more stars for my meal and the phenomenal service!

Chris Burt

Always a good choice for an upscale dinning experience. The service and the food is amazing. The Chefs do an awesome job and plating for us is always 100%


Awesome service and the food is great. Everytime.

Jared Kolb

We went here to celebrate our 10th anniversary and loved the experience. The food was top notch and our server Hannah was great too. Two things that we truly loved were the bison meatballs and the surf & turf entree. Definitely going back!

Robert Sell

This might be the best meal I've ever eaten.

Jolien Schwan

Delicious food and wonderful service!

Alex Hatzenbuhler

I went to this Maxwells for their Sunday morning brunch, and it was astounding. It definitely is one of the nicer places on Fargo, and it shows in the quality of food and the attention you receive from staff. The restaurant was very clean and the good was delicious. It is a bit expensive, but a great choice for an occasional nice brunch!

Jim Nichol

Always 5 Star. Love this place.

Terry Ellingson

Good food and good service!!

Matt Treadwell

Wonderful food and service. Great place to bring a date or come for a special occasion. It is a little overpriced usually $40-90 a person.

Keenan Jackson

Where I got proposed to and they had good food I get them on 100%

Andreas Oines

A bit on the pricey side, but you get what you pay for. Probably the best steak in the state.

Dan V

Food and waitstaff are very good, but I agree with others comments, if your by yourself, plan on eating at the bar. They really don't seem to want individuals eating there. Maybe they haven't learned that an individual who gets treated well usually knows others that they tell about their experience. Their website clearly says "Restaurant Friday and Saturday 5pm to 11pm". But if you go there at 10:15pm all they will sell you is bar food even with all the kitchen staff there. Who goes to a nice place for dinner just to eat "Bar Food".

Adam Dorfman

Great surprise - amazing meal here in Fargo. Our server was fantastic. The bar has a great whiskey/wine selection (Though that 2014 George T. Stagg is now gone!). The food was top-notch on any scale. I have food allergies, and they were incredibly accommodating. HIGHLY recommend!

Andrea butler

Always a great night out when Maxwells is on the agenda! Still my favorite place for a special treat. Food is delicious, service friendly and at Christmas their gift certificate special is a great deal and gift to give.

Fargo Girl

Good food, sub par service. I would say you'll get good service maybe 20% of the time. The last two times I have been here the servers didn't seem to want to work. Last time our server sat down at a table behind us, and hung out with her friends instead of served us. We waited to order for far to long, as her friends company was obviously more important. Food is really good though, no mishaps there.

Deb Dondoneau

Superb food and service!

Jon Richmond

Went with Bison meatballs. They were not only unique, But excellent, more than a meal (on the bar menu). They have much higher end fare, but even the bar menu is well executed and prepared. And 2 dollar bud talks during happy hour.

Jasmine Brown

I work next to this place so I can't say much. I see a lot a people go there. So it must be good.

chris brubaker

Great food, wine, service and atmosphere!

Brian McCulley

I live in Minneapolis and I look forward to coming to Maxwells when I am in town visiting family. Great food and great service

Cynthia Gray

Very excellent food, service and dining experience. On the high end as far as price is concerned, but very appropriate for a lovely dinner, and worth the higher cost if you are looking for someplace special, or quiet so you can talk. The wine was delicious.

Robbie Elliot

My partner and I have celebrated 3 out of our 4 anniversaries here. Two of which we have had the same waiter that remembered us. Great food and always a welcoming place. Maxwell's will be one of the places we miss now that we are moving from Fargo. Thank you all from the bottom of our hearts for everything. If there is a way we can come celebrate with you again we will make the trip to Fargo just to come eat here.

Patrick Carlson

I went here on a business trip. Service was good as well as food. I'd did feel it was overpriced but I wasn't the one paying.

Todd Braun

Impressive restaurant, bar and service. Went for a wine tasting party and then started for dinner. We shared scallops along with a burger and Sweet potato fries and loved all of them. If this review is helpful, please click on 'Like' to improve my status.

My steak was burnt but the ambience and service was good.

Twylla Conner

Another wonderful night at Maxwells... thank you to the chef for wonderful appetizers.

Monique Lozoya

Amazing plates accompanied by outstanding service! Unexpected fine dining in Fargo, and I absolutely recommend!

Guy Thoreson

Awesome as usual. Great service and patience from Holly

Jon DuBois

I have gone with the chef creation the last two times there and both have been amazing. Keep up the great work!

I expected more. Duck was chewy and the asparagus was very thick and stringy as if it was boiled, leave it on the grill longer to get some char. It was my 2nd time going to Maxwells and it will be my last, seems like the quality has declined dramatically in the last few months. Even the $3 coffee was watered down. Fargo has many other restaurants to pick from, I understand some might go here because they feel expensive = classy&quality, but unfortunately the quailty is absent here.

Mary Schimke

You won't regret visiting Maxwells Restaurant & Bar. One of the very best of the F-M area, Maxwells food is always top notch, and their service is great, too. They're attentive, but not hovering. And if you haven't already done it, be sure to try the bison meatballs. Delectable!

Trisha Page

Exceptional food. Good service. Make a reservation and prepare to drop $150 min.

Gary C

Seems like it might be a good restaurant. I wasn't allowed to find out. Although limited seating, there were plenty of tables open. They had menus in their hands and ready to seat me when I told them I was a party of one. Then they back peddled and told me I would need to sit in the bar. I'm here on business. Just me. I just wanted to sit down and have a nice meal after a long day of travel. I'm not about to order a $47 entree sitting on a bar stool waiting for the bartender to come out from behind the bar to help me. If you're a party if one, you're definitely an inconvenience to this establishment.

Uuganbayar Ganzorig

First of all I was disappointed. Me and my fiancé went there to celebrate our anniversary. We ordered Filet for $39and Dry Aged Wagyu Beef for $87. Filet was outstanding. It was delicious and juicy. Dry Aged Wagyu Beef was a big DISAPOINTMENT! Wagyu Beef was chewy gummy and rubbery on some parts. I did not taste any sign of dry aged meet. To be honest Filet we ordered was 10 times better than WAGYU!!! WAGYU BEEF cost almost 3 times of that nice Filet. My honest opinion: I can buy better meat from grocery store and cook it better that that WAGYU that they served me. AND it would be cost efficient. They even showed me their certification of Wagyu and it looked all legit. However it was hard to tell that I'm eating premium cut. I felt like I'm eating $10 cut from Walmart. I would not suggest WAGYU BEEF at this place. I'm giving stars only because their service and Filet that they served was outstanding. I'm sorry but your WAGYU was SAD! As a meat lover I was disappointed.

Mariah Laver Juanto

Absolutely the best fine dining in Fargo-Moorhead!

Steve Evans

I'm from Boston and travel for work. I look forward to eating here every 3 months. Probably some of the best steaks I've ever had! And service is wonderful.

John Trombley

Always warm and welcoming, like Cheers only upscale. The food is great and the ambiance is relaxing. It's the kind of place that easily becomes a favorite.

Hannah Deryn

Food was AMAZING!! My fiance is the kind of person that inhales his food, and this food actually made him slow down and enjoy every flavorful bite. It was a party of flavors in my mouth I wanted to savor each and every morsel. This is what food from a Chef tastes like, and the higher prices are more than worth the experience. I would recommend it any time, but for me, I will probably keep it to special occasion situations only! (Need to save $ for my wedding) <3


Excellent meal and outstanding service from Tyler. Highly recommend!

Rob Andersen

Visited here while on a work trip and the food was surprisingly good! I hadn't thought of Fargo as a foodie destination, but I had some really great experiences while in town. Maxwells did not disappoint.

Rachelle Schmidt

Great dining, wonderful service!

The Ben

Excellent food and even better service. Ty may just be the best waiter I've ever had. We had the Surf and Turf and Ribeye, both were perfect. My compliments to the chef. Quick tip, make a reservation.

Shane Meier

Great food great drinks and nice place

Theron S

High quality, well prepared food with a knowledgeable staff.

Addison Wheelslip

Cosmopolitan menu hidden in a West Fargo strip mall. Don't let the chain pizza joint next door deter you. Walk in the understated entrance to find a High-end bistro and bar (segment). Fresh ingredients, well layered dishes, and great execution of a creative menu. Conner the barkeep was knowledgeable and skilled as a barkeep. Made a proper Backbone cask bourbon Manhattan. Great service. Happy hour specials in the bar area (see photo). Prices a little above par for the location and segment. Portions par. A refined 5-star performance in a competitive segment.

Sarah Hunlicks

Great food great atmosphere great service.. we will be back!!!!

Andrew Rosen

Maxwells has a Sunday brunch buffet that is one of the best kept secrets in Fargo. It is quite pricey at about $20 per person but as a treat it is well worth it. Food quality is amazing and they have a plethora of gourmet foods for you to choose from. Again it is a little expensive but you are getting your moneys worth. Go ahead and treat yourself, you deserve it.

Jeff Stein

Great food and atmosphere. Higher end restaurant. You can go for drinks or dine.
