The place has been around downtown Belleville forever. Best food in town with more choices than you will find in the chains and a better environment as well. Cozy small but not cramped inside. Very friendly staff and good value in what you get for the price. Very popular with the lunch crowd for great salads. Really nice for a quiet evening with friends. Call ahead if you have a bigger group. Personally, I go for the pizza and have done so for over 20 years. There are a lot of choices for the rest of the family. They even serve good fish!

Maxwells is like a landmark in Belleville. I have been eating there since I was a kid and have never had a bad meal. The selection on the menu is endless and service is always friendly. It is definitly worth the drive from anywhere in the metro area.

Maxwells is an absolutely great find. They serve all kinds of foods for a quick bite or a romantic dinner. The atmosphere is quaint and romantic and I recommend this place to couples and families alike. There needs to be more restaraunts like this. Keep up the wonderful work. We go here every year on our anniversary and want to continue.

I love maxwell's because they serve everything except the kitchen sink. They have salads, hamburgers, sandwiches, pasta, pizza, fried finger foods, soups, seafood, steak, and more. The first time we ate there it took us forever to order because the selection was huge. They always have a special of the day. It is a great place to eat when you have a large group because there is always something to please everyone.
My husband and I enjoy eating at family owned restaurants. They seem to reall care about their customers and depend on the community for their income.
