Awesome tofu spicy wings

I really like this place. They have plenty of choices for a vegetarian and I suggest the tofu wings!

Mardfi Gras in Milwaukee - and veg-friendly too

Posted on 03 / 03 / 2013

Great cajun food: several excellent dishes, many good dishes; there are sufficient vegetarian options to satisy my vegetarian friend (who actually requests to go there!); dinner portions are very generous (be prepared for leftovers!), and some of the appetizers or side-orders are big enough and/or good enough to be main dishes.
menu available at
(We have not explored the "vegan friendliness".)

Two floors of dining, well-stocked bars, nice selection of beers and wines, Happy Hour 4-6, delicious desserts (that are NOT veg-friendly however). Background music is skewed to New Orleans, and the place can be noisy when busy; nice decor. I've ordered "to-go" from Maxie's several times, no problem; they have friendly and helpful wait-staff.

It's a "first-come-first-served" restaurant; they do not accept reservations (except possibly for large groups), and there can be waits at the door, so go early or go late; and sometimes phonecalls get shuffled to voicemail -- but hey, it's a busy and popular place!! Great for "pre-show" meals or "after-show" dining/drinks.

Pros: great food, great desserts, generous portions, nice atmosphere
Cons: desserts not veg-friendly, no reservations, unknown "vegan friendliness"

Minute Vegan Selection

Posted on 06 / 27 / 2011

Vegetarian section offers 5 items - only 2 "can be made Vegan" - NOT!
No sub for complimentary corn bread, all breads contain milk (including po'boy).
BBQ Tofu is just a slab of tofu out of the package with BBQ sauce.
Side vegetables overcooked with no seasoning.

Pros: Nice interior, Hearty drinks
Cons: Out of the way location, Servers have an attitude, Not Vegan Friendly!

Truly comfort food

Posted on 03 / 31 / 2010

The Pommarita is the best cocktail in the world. The Cajun fries are the most fantastic thing I've ever shoveled into my face. The sweet potato fries are the best balance of creamy and crispy, salty and sweet. The jambalaya is spicy, filling, packed with smoked tofu (is there anything better?) and is served on a platter that can feed at least 3 people. I love you, Maxie.

Pros: Food, Drinks, Atmosphere
Cons: Not enough vegan options, Always busy (good for them!)

Excellent food, casual and contemporary place.

I've been to this place more than a few times and always was served deliscious food, made with fresh ingredients and terrific seasonings. The desserts are to die for!! Although it is casual it is also contemporary and classy- an ecletic mix of people. Definatley a place to go for dinner, a drink or coffee and dessert. Yumm!!!!!

Pros: excellent food , yummy desserts, fun & friendly
Cons: limited menu , can get busy
