that's in full swing."

Welcome to Maxie's

Get some south in yo’ mouth!

Our Southern inspiration includes "Low Country" cooking of the Carolinas, Creole and Cajun cooking of Louisiana, traditional slow-smoked Southern BBQ, and southern comfort cooking of all kinds.


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 Interstate 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!
