Hoboken, NJ 07030
A Hoboken, NJ mainstay since the early 1900s, Maxwell's is one of the area's recognized cultural institutions. In its original incarnation, Maxwell's was known as a daytime escape for employees of the nearby Maxwell House coffee plant - the pub's namesake. In 1978, Maxwell's reinvented itself as it began booking well-known and up-and-coming artists comparable to those appearing across the river at such renowned live music venues as CBGBs. Today, Maxwell's remains known for its laidback, no-nonsense approach to food, drink and live music.
Tips from foursquare
Yes, Maxwell's is a music institution, but foodies will fall for their food too. Try the blacked tuna steak, twin crabcakes, pierogis, goat cheese salad.... heck, never had a bad meal here!
Want a true Hoboken experience, head to Maxwell’s. It attracts the locals and lots of great bands and events.
Best burger in Hoboken, with a special every night, including the Naughty Vegetarian (veggie burger with bacon and cheese) for Tuesday. Also, get the fried brie cheese!
enjoy the Sunday Cajun special. it's awesome, a lot of food for $14
Food is above average, but the atmosphere and intimate music room make this one of my favorite places in the world. Have a decent meal (pierogies are awesome), see a show, and make some memories.
