Blacksburg Restaurant Recommendation: Maxwell’s

Quick note for the Blacksburg, Virginia residents/visitors–

On Friday night, Larry Bowman, Lindsay Jones, Ann Bowman Jones, Gwyn Jones and I ate at Maxwell’s (1204 North Main Street).  It is the second time this summer Larry and I visited Maxwell’s.  The meals are more upscale (Entrees range from $17 – $22), but they are absolutely delicious.  One time I got the Horseradish and Parmesan Encrusted Salmon and one time I had the Stuffed Filet Mignon.  Both dishes were very satisfying meals with a solid supporting cast of vegetables (something I’m always on the lookout for).  The desserts are pretty darn fine as well.  Friday, we sampled the Crème Brûlée (really creamy and light!) and the Chocolate Mousse.

Another thing that stuck out about Maxwell’s is how both times we’ve gone, it’s been completely empty!  Here we are getting a meal on a Friday night.  Usually an endeavor like that is accompanied by crowds and waits and lines and noise.  Last Friday, literally our fivesome were the only people in the restaurant.  So during what is usually a madhouse meal, Maxwell’s provided us a little oasis of calm and quiet. Granted, if there were other people in the restaurant they wouldn’t quite classify our party (with a cranky toddler) as “quiet”.  🙂

Anyway, if you are in town and looking for a good meal without a hectic dinner rush and your budget permits– I say give Maxwell’s a whirl.
