  • My husband and I had our rehearsal dinner here at the Maxwell Room and can I tell you it was perfect! What a beautiful venue. If it wasn't for the amount of people invited to my wedding, I would have gotten married at this venue. What a perfect location for a wedding and/or rehearsal dinner. The service was great. My family really enjoyed themselves.

  • We could not have picked a better venue for us - our first and last stop when looking for a wedding venue was the Maxwell Room - we knew right away it was the right fit for us. We had both our wedding ceremony and reception there and it was truly beautiful! The venue is gorgeous - it's not the white stucco plain location at all - the venue has so much character inside and out. It's a great location on the water with beautiful views that made for gorgeous wedding photos. And to top it all off, working and planning with Libby was truly a joy. She's very responsive and her and the venue offered many options that fit well for our unconventional wedding. The staff on our wedding day was great and the prices are very reasonable - especially for the area. Thank you, Libby - we'll always be grateful and can't wait to throw another party there!

  • We worked with Libby to plan our wedding at Maxwell Room. She was amazing to work with. Super accommodating and brought all of our visions to life. The venue is the perfect canvas to really bring whatever theme you have alive. One of Al Capone's old speak easy's. Vintage and VERY romantic setting! Food's excellent! Libby coordinated well with all of our other vendors. It was truly a magical night I'll never forget. Super thankful to Libby.

  • The Maxwell Room is BEAUTIFUL !!! The whole staff is great and willing to help, and Libby is amazing! She will guide you with everything and she will make sure that everything gets done as planned. They are the best! Our guests haven't stopped saying wonderful things about the place and the food. The Maxwell Room has different rooms and a vintage ambience, so you don't feel like you are in the typical hotel/restaurant hall. It has a beautiful set of indirect lighting systems where you can select the color that you want for your special occasion. At night it becomes a magical atmosphere!! It is really a unique location ! We are extremely happy that we chose it :)

  • MAXEWELL ROOM IS AWESOME! It was truly love at first sight with the Maxwell Room & I. My fiance & I wanted somewhere that wasn't a cookie cutter country club or basic hotel venue. When I went to the Maxwell Room I knew that was going to be our reception location. I truly appreciate Libby, she was friendly and treated us like family. I hope to work with her in the future.

  • What can I say other than Awesome!!!! Libby's friendliness and guidance provided the comfort I needed. At the last moment, we needed to change venues, and Libby made the transition as smooth as possible. I'm thankful to Libby for being available and always pleasant and honest. Praise God for her :) I highly recommend the beautiful Historic Maxwell Room!

  • Absolutely beautiful location! We wanted something with character, the brick walls and archways are so beautiful it was perfect for us. The food was amazing and the responsiveness of the staff was amazing as well. The prime rib was cooked perfectly. And all of the appetizers were so delicious! We wouldn't have changed a thing! Thank you so much to everyone at the Maxwell Room that made our wedding reception wonderful and memorable!

  • In search of an intimate place to have our wedding, my husband and I found the Maxwell Room and fell in love. The ambiance; surrounded by water and high rise buildings with a rustic feeling was exactly what we were looking for. Libby assured us that everything would be great. She was accommodating to our schedule for the food tasting, provided wedding ideas and worked zealously together with our wedding planner to give us the wedding we wanted. Libby and her team were great to work. The best part of it all is they made us feel like family throughout the entire process. They made us comfortable. It didn't feel like a business transaction. It was more of family helping you plan your wedding. Now let's talk about the food, everyone talked about it for days!! It was DELICIOUS..? We loved Libby and her team.. Libby, we want to thank you and your team for making our wedding day a beautiful one to remember!. Married March 7, 2015

  • Andie did a great job of accommodating our group of 55 on short notice. The food was excellent and the service was great. This was not our first event at The Maxwell Room and I'm sure we will be back soon!

  • My daughter was married last Sunday, and she picked the Historic Maxwell Room for her dinner reception...and it was the BEST decision she ever made! Both her mother and I met with Andie quite a few times to go over details such as seating, menu, table cards, centerpieces, etc. and with these details - and MORE - Andie cheerfully guided us with excellent advice, and service far 'above and beyond' our expectations...even picking up flowers for us, bringing things of her own in for us, and doing everything in her power to make the event as absolutely as wonderful as possible for my family and our guests! The food was perfectly prepared perfectly and served efficiently by a very friendly staff, and combined with the vintage look and pleasant ambience of the room, it truly was a dream wedding for my daughter and now son in law! I would highly recommend The Maxwell Room for anyone looking for a great place to hold their wedding or special event, and thank you Andie for making it all possi... Read more

  • When I first signed with the maxwell room, I didn't even remember the lady's name and after a while started wondering if I made the right decision. Which is the worst when planning a wedding! A couple weeks later, I recieved a bubbly call from Andie the new event coordinator. She was extremely pleasant and turned my hesitance right around. She was like a friend, making sure everything was perfect and really made our special day perfect. The venue looked gorgeous and the food was great! Everyone is still talking and sharing photos of that night months later, it's a day none of our friends and family will forget.

  • When searching for a unique reception venue, we found The Historic Maxwell Room. When we saw it in person, it was everything we hoped it would be. The size of the room was perfect for our 60 guests. The brick archways around the dance floor, huge wooden bar area and beautiful courtyard give the space a vintage vibe with tons of character. The food & bar packages were very reasonable (we opted for beer & wine). The food on our wedding day was even better than at the tasting. We were even able to customize the meal. We served a duet of skirt steak (we requested Chimichurri instead of Thai marinade) & Caribbean Shrimp (without jerk seasoning). We've since received many compliments from our guests on the hors d’Oeuvres (tuna wontons are a MUST), food, how nice & accommodating the staff were & the uniqueness of the venue. Our only complaint is the amount of turnover of the wedding coordinator. Our first appointment was with Gigi. Weeks later we made our decision & were ready to sign a con... Read more
