I went on a Friday night with my fiancé and brother it was our first time there, but my brother had been there before for drinks. At Maxfield's on Main, bikers can lock their bikes safely outside. I hope the owners will read this and allow their bartenders to pour a decent drink. This dish is pure proving grounds for a chef btw. On a previous visit we had dinner and the food was unmentionable.
It's got a casual vibe with bar seating and small tables smattered around the room. The drink list at this restaurant has everything you need to complete your meal and your night out. My fiancé had to go across the room to get her so we could get our bill and pay. The band was great, but I will not be returning. But the music is incredible. The meetups are the ideal way to achieving these goals.
They tasted home-made rather than something frozen and out of a bag. Their signature cocktails although pricey for the size were very tasty. Now comes the part where our evening was not as pleasant. Easily my favorite place in the area. If you like loud Jazz music, I guess this is your place. This was our 5th time here.
Walking in downtown Boonton is like walking back in time - a friendly time when people said hello, just because. I hope the owners will read this and allow their bartenders to pour a decent drink. The service was impeccable and the bar selections and specialty cocktails were as enjoyable as they were humorous! I shouldn't have to read an apple agreement to realize I am being overcharged. It's got a casual vibe with bar seating and small tables smattered around the room. We will not approve a new member who doesn't have a current, recognizable photo. The names of all the dishes were very creative.
We would have stayed and bought more drinks but after that it was clear they didn't want us here. Anyone familiar with my Yelps will know I only yelp when I have something important to say - usually negative as my tastes are simple, and I am shocked when anyone can't meet my wants. My fiancé and I split a basket of chicken nuggets I believe they were called sex nuggs and rock-n-roll and a basket of fries. The policies atrocious and seditious. Incredibly bad food for the area.
Now comes the part where our evening was not as pleasant. Seriously, go check him out. Top them off before you serve them! She had absolutely no interest in waiting on our table Was it us? This dish is pure proving grounds for a chef btw. Walking in downtown Boonton is like walking back in time - a friendly time when people said hello, just because. My fiancé had to go across the room to get her so we could get our bill and pay. Went there for the first time a month or two ago and I wish I had gone before. Maxfields is quaint and charming and you can't help but feel at home.
It's sad because there is just so much potential. Well, drinks took forever to come as there may have been 6-8 other people in the bar, not good and my wife's Cosmo came out looking like Orange Juice with tons of pulp. While this is printed on the food menu, I didn't order any food so did not see this and was caught pretty aghast. We stopped here on our first trip to Boonton ever - though we have lived 14 miles for over 40 years. This night, September 3rd it's still not not doing well.
On the plus side, it does offer a great venue for local bands and song-smiths. We got the goat cheese appetizer amazing and the mini tacos just okay. They had food menu's but didn't order anything, but people were eating, so I can only assume the food was good enough to eat. I like socializing, meeting new people and trying new activities. I would love to give this place five stars, I really would.
