  • Libby was our contact person- She was very knowledgeable, kind and responsive. The venue is beautiful, we had both the ceremony and reception at the same location. Every staff member was on point and knew exactly what to do. Many of my guests made it a point to tell me how much they enjoyed the venue and staff.

  • CALLING ALL BRIDES!!! HISTORIC MAXWELL ROOM - THE MOST PERFECT VENUE IN ALL OF FORT LAUDERDALE! As a wedding planner/mother of the bride, it was a challenge to find a venue that provided a cool, offbeat vibe, 5-star service and fabulous food. I found it at the Maxwell Room. Last weekend, our families and closest friends celebrated our daughter's wedding in the most perfect space. The Cuban food, creatively prepared by Chef Lou was superb and plentiful, the service by Libby and her team was impeccable. The space was intimate, warm, inviting and comfortable. It felt like a mix of vintage Havana, New Orleans and funky Brooklyn. Imagine that, a first-class venue with delicious food, white-glove service and a funky fabulous space to celebrate in, while still being affordable! The experience exceeded my expectation on every level. Hats off to an amazing team and a spectacular venue! If I could, I would give it 10-STARS! Jean Wilco Jean Wilco Events

  • I cannot say enough about how much we loved the Historic Maxwell Room. This was the first and only venue we looked at, and was definitely a great choice! Libby was fantastic to work with. She helped us with everything from vendor recommendations (which were spot-on) to having extra items such as an aisle runner and candle holders. The venue includes food, alcohol, tables/chairs, linens, servers, ceremony set-up, etc, which made my life so much easier - and it was so affordable considering how much you got. Many of our guests commented on how much they liked the venue and the food. The food was delicious, especially the cocktail hour appetizers. This is such a unique venue with a great staff - highly recommend!

  • If we could give more stars to Libby and the Maxwell Room we would. The venue and Libby made our wedding the most memorable day of our lives. She was more than accommodating to all of our needs, ideas, and multiple requests to visit the place since we booked the venue. The overall look of the place makes it possible to keep the decorations to a minimum as it has so much charm. Libby's calm attitude and extensive experience came in handy as our wedding took place in the middle of flood warnings, tornado warnings, and torrential down pours. The 'Plan B' for a rainy day should not even be called a plan B as its just as beautiful and amazing as our plan A, the courtyard option. Lot of our guests commented on how glad they were that we hosted our ceremony inside instead of the courtyard as it created a more intimate setting. We opted for the heavy appetizers throughout the happy hour and reception and everyone loved the quality of the food and the uniqueness of it. We loved the Maxwell r... Read more

  • We were so lucky to have been able to have our reception at the Maxwell Room. Libby is an amazing person to work with. She was quick to respond and even helped us determine how we wanted to decorate the venue when we were toying with different ideas. The staff was incredible as well the day of. Very pleasant and quick service. Our guests absolutely enjoyed themselves. And the exposed brick, long bar, and ambience of the venue was perfect for our wedding! Thank you Libby for making our vision of a great day come true!

  • We feel in love with the The Historic Maxwell room as soon as we stepped in. Libby, the event coordinator was so accommodating with all of our requests and very helpful as well. When it finally came to the day off, the staff was on point and gave all of our guest amazing service. The food was delicious. So many of our guests couldn't get enough of the steak! This location was so perfect and I highly recommend this venue for any size wedding. We had 100 guests and there was still room to party, dance and room around and still get that romantic intimate feel.

  • The Historic Maxwell Room created the wedding of my dreams. There is not enough praise I could write, from the charm of the room (even before my own personal touches), the staff-especially Libby, the food and the results, this is the place that my wedding memories are built on. After searching high and low throughout South Florida, my husband and I knew this was it from the moment we walked in the door. Loved the Maxwell Room. Thanks Libby and staff!

  • What a wonderful venue, our wedding was perfect and Libby did such a great job in making sure of this. Planning a wedding remotely is not easy, and I am so glad Libby was able to accommodate all of our needs. Aside from the staff, the Maxwell Room is such beautiful; A private, romantic, rustic location hidden in Fort Lauderdale. We had our ceremony outside by the bay and it was absolutely gorgeous. I was concerned about the restaurant right beside where the ceremony took place but once it all started, they were very respectful of the event, and hearing claps and congratulations from strangers made it that much more special! For food we had a duet of Skirt steak in chimichurri sauce and Grilled Mahi Mahi in mango sauce- simple delicious! I would definitely recommend this venue!

  • The venue is great. Parking for venue is terrible. No follow thru on the event coordination the day of reception. The food was not very good. I would definitely hire an outside wedding coordinator. The serving staff was ok.
