About Us

Maxie's opened its doors on May 5th, 2007, serving Southern-inspired “from-scratch” cooking. Maxie's is located in the old Vespalec family grocery store and Gerry O'Brien's Meat Market at the corner of 68th Street and Fairview Avenue, immediately north of I-94 and the 68th Street off-ramp. Maxie's offers full-service bars and dining on two levels.

Maxie's Southern inspiration includes the “Low Country” cooking of the Carolinas, Creole and Cajun cooking of Louisiana, traditional slow-smoked Southern barbeque, and Southern comfort cooking of all kinds. We feature a raw bar serving fresh oysters and shrimp flown in 5 days a week from some of the best fish purveyors on the east coast. Our bar offers a hand picked selection of quality wines, micro-brewed and imported beers, and top-shelf liquors. Maxie's serves from a whiskey list of 125 selections, including rare and ultra-premium bourbons and ryes. Maxie's features Milwaukee's Happiest Happy Hour from 4-6 p.m. with $1 fresh-shucked oysters, $9 appetizers, and Buck Off! beer, wine, and cocktails.
