  • My husband and I paid for the majority of our wedding by ourselves. (My family helped out with a lot of the decor/favor costs but we did that with discounts.) I'm a graduate student pursuing a PhD, so needless to say our budget was quite tight. We knew what we wanted and we knew how much we were willing to pay for it. The only issue was, I didn't like any of the typical South Florida wedding venues: hotels, golf clubs, and event halls. I really wanted water but without the ridiculous markup at a fancy hotel. I needed something simple, elegant and a little bit unique. Tall order to fill, until I found the Maxwell room. It took a little bit of internet digging but once I saw the venue in person, I was hooked. In addition to having the New River views just outside their door, they have this great cozy and welcoming brick and wood decor. Not to mention the amazing pub styled bar. I mean style-wise, there was not a single other venue in South Florida that fit us more than the Maxwell Roo... Read more

  • My husband and I were on a very tight budget but wanted a unique venue that would make our day stand out. I came across The Maxwell Room and fell in love immediately. We met with Gigi, the coordinator, and knew right away it's what we wanted. They had fantastic prices, beautiful location and awesome support. Gigi was great with helping us come up with options that would not only satisfy our budget but our guests as well. After the wedding we had many people tell us how happy they were with the venue. Service was great, bar tenders were on point and quick and Gigi did a wonderful job reading the crowd and making sure that the day ran smoothly. I would HIGHLY recommend this place to anyone looking for a historic, unique venue with great amenities!!

  • This place was amazing. Gigi the event planner was so incredible helpful and understanding. All of my guest loved the Maxwell room. They could stop talking about how cute it was. The food was great and the staff gave us personalized service. I never had an empty drink. They chase the wedding party with food so we didn't go hungry during the photo shoot. I couldn't ask for anything more. I will use them again. When I was looking for a place to hold my wedding I just fell in love with it. I love the look and feel of it. A friend of mine went to a wedding there 8 years ago and said it was great. They also said it was the best wedding food they had ever had. The fact that they remembered 8 years latter told me a lot. I am sure my guest will remember the Maxwell room for years to come.

  • We had the perfect wedding. The weather was perfect, the company was perfect, and the venue was perfect. We could not have asked for a more wonderful day to start our happily ever after. Gigi and her Maxwell team made everything so seamless, easy, delightful, and perfect in every way. We could not have made it magical with them. Thank you to all, it was a spectacular night, and the best wedding EVER! Thank you for giving us it all. We loved ever minute of it, and the reviews are in from the friends and family: SO DID THEY! Thank you!!! Will definitely recommend this place to anyone! Love, the newlyweds Gui and Christina

  • We recently had our wedding reception at The Maxwell Room. As corny as this may sound, this is how I genuinely feel-our wedding day was a dream come true! I can't begin to thank the staff at The Maxwell Room enough for ensuring that we had the best reception possible. The venue made our small wedding of 31 people feel intimate. Gigi and her staff treated us like gold, and made sure we had a stress-free, fun-filled evening. Gigi in particular really put this out-of-town bride at ease with planning a Florida wedding from afar in New York City!

  • I can't say enough good things about this venue! My daughter's wedding reception was held at the Maxwell Room this past Sunday. My daughter insisted on having her wedding here because of its quaint ambiance. It has a vintage feel to it and also has a beautiful courtyard for pictures etc... That is just the beginning! We received personalized attention from the Andrea, the banquet manager, beyond belief! She helped us organize everything from planning the menu to the assembling the centerpieces for us. She is an amazing person and was willing to help in any way she could. I should also mention that the food and service staff was excellent and all of the guests were happy and we all had a wonderful time and didn't need to worry about a thing! I highly recommend the Maxwell Room for any big or small event that you may plan.

  • This historic venue was a perfect place for our wedding. Gigi and her staff hands down did a great job! I gave four stars in value because I feel their price per plate/person is a bit steep. It was a beautiful and unique non typical reception, thank you Maxwell Room!

  • Andie and her team at the Maxwell room were nothing short of fantastic. The venue its self is a really cool place with a vintage feel. The brick and exposed beam are really stunning, while the long bar adds so much character. Working with Andie was like working with a friend. She was professional, responsive and so eager to make my wedding dreams come true. The food was very tasty, however the one compliant that I heard from guest was that it took a bit long to to be served. The Maxwell Room is very flexible and worked very well with all of my other vendors. I would recommended the Maxwell Room to brides looking for a unique venue with vintage flair.

  • I fell in love with this place because of the rustic feel it has to it. At first I was dealing with Brad, their event coordinator. He didn't last long with the company but didn't bother to tell me until after I left several emails and phone messages. I should've seen that as a sign and walked away from this place, but after Brad and Gigi Barse assured me that everything would run smooth from there on out I decided to stick with them. Gigi Barse was great until she showed her true colors the day of the wedding (11/24/2012). The food was cold. I had ordered mashed potatoes and they gave everyone broccoli. They ran put of food and did not make more to feed our guest that did not eat. Mind you we had 8 people not show up to the wedding whose plates we had already paid for. When my mom went back the following Monday to try and get her money back for the 8 plates that were not used Gigi and the owner refused. Not only did they refuse, but they made up this bullshit story about some of our gu... Read more
