This is by far the best restaurant in the area. It has new owners who act as hostess and chef. Not only is the place beautiful but the food is excellent and is on the same level as some of the best restaurants in the country. Chef uses locally grown meat which is wonderful. The atmosphere is friendly and warm.

Having lived in Europe and been fortunate enough to dine at some top Michelin-rated restaurants, the new chef at Maxsells amazed me by being of the same caliber, with the delicious wine dinner held at the restaurant this October. The pumpkin soup was unsurpassed by anything that I've ever had. Last but not least, the meal in this beautiful restaurant... More

Our first impression of this beautiful gem in Florence was wow!! The rooms were clean and cozy, overlooking the gorgeous lake. Such a quaint and neat place. We had great conversations with the new owners and they were a pleasure to get to know. I would recommend Maxsells to anyone passing through!!

Maxsell's is on a quiet beautiful little lake and the outdoor patio has the most amazing view! Indoors also has a view of the lake but if you can sit outside weather permitting, do so. Food is very good. Had the most amazing artichoke dip ever! Asked for the recipe but the chef wouldn't share:( Not like we live nearby... More

We eat here several times per season as we are snowbirds. You can eat inside or out on the patio depending on the weather. The enclosed porch has a lovely view of the lake. The food is very good and the service was good the last time we were there. It is worth going to.

My family has been visiting the Iron County MI area since 1974 and have always rented accommodations in the Crystal Falls MI vicinity. Over the years it has become harder to rent satisfactory accommodations as hospitality businesses have come and gone and not been replaced with suitable lodging. Recently my wife and I decided to go to the UP for... More

We had an excellent meal on a beautiful setting, on fisher lake. Chicken marsala, and barbecue ribs. Good wine list. Didn't need the music outside, but apart from that it was very nice. You can also stay there, but we didn't. Beautiful old house, nicely restored.

A wonderful spot .... Overlooking Fisher Lake in a picturesque town. The building was lovingly redone and its there waiting to be enjoyed! The food is excellent and there service warm and friendly. So forget the city life, drop the city attitude and enjoy what this wonderful restaurant has to offer.

Scrumptious gourmet food, from the appetizer to the main dishes to the desserts. Attentive and friendly service. Beautifully decorated atmosphere. Calming lakeside view. Worth the distance from Milwaukee, WI.
