What You'll Get
According to the USDA, one's recommended daily food intake should consist of vegetables, grains, lean protein, and a solution of elk tears and truth serum. Meet almost all of these needs with today's Groupon: for $15, you get $30 worth of casual dining and drinks at Maxwell's in Hoboken.
Maxwell's eclectic menu of casual American fare overflows with familiar appetizers, soups, salads, burgers, sandwiches, and daily specials. Begin a flavor excursion with sautéed artichoke hearts ($5.95) or a bowl of blazin' beef chili ($4.95) before conquering half-pound burgers ($7.95) or a Maryland-style crab-cake sandwich ($9.95). Bigger bastions of hunger will enjoy the coconut chicken ($14.95), slightly smothered in a delicate rum sauce and served up over yellow rice with fried plantains, or opt for a hearty helping of homemade shepherd's pie ($12.95). Veggie regulators can bite the green bullet with a goat-cheese salad ($7.95) over field greens and walnuts, drizzled in citrus vinaigrette. Maxwell's also offers weekend brunch for the mealtime indecisive. Complete the comestible cycle with an ice-cold beverage of the sudsy sort with tap beers ($4–$5), bottles ($3.50–$5), and a full saloon of libations.
Maxwell's low-lit dining area and red-brick walls give it the casual class of a neighborhood eatery, and the backroom music venue that's part of the establishment lays the rhythm on thick. Today's Groupon is not valid toward live-show tickets, but great bands are always on the roster, so check out the upcoming schedule if you like to party with your ears after raving with your gullet.
- In recent years, as the neighborhood demographics have shifted from bohemian to bourgeois, the dimly lit restaurant-bar in front has evolved into a destination in its own right with a substantial selection of beers and above-average pub grub. – Keach Hagey, New York
- A bar/grill with reasonably priced drinks and very good food. It has a very nice intimate and casual atmosphere. Highly recommended. – Kim T., Insider Pages
