My friends and I had heard that Maxwell Silverman's was an upbeat good place for dinner. We went on a Saturday evening and it was practically empty. We were told that it attracted a later crowd. The food was ok and we probably won't go back because we were looking for a new taste sensation and didn't find it.

I went on a Saturday night and music was good and drinks too. Not too crowded and DJ was playing good music.

Was there last night. Wait staff was night but this is the place to eat if you have no money and no taste buds. In an old warehouse with old machinery as decoration don't waste your time or money

First this would be a "0" if that were possible. I felt like I stepped into the late 70's as we walked in...Dark room, cheesy decor, outdated menu. Food was the worst I had in a while - fish was half raw, half rubbery. Salmon burger (a popular choice per our waitstaff) was terrible. Service was really slow. We all... More

The missus and me stopped in for brunch during a recent trip to Worcester. It had been 20 years or so since we were last here. We went up to the fifth floor for the brunch, which was a first or us. It's served buffet style, and there are servers on hand to help with some items. It's a wonderfully... More

When we called to see if they have gluten-free options, we were told that there were many options available. Unfortunately, this is another restaurant that tells you to skip out on certain portions of the meal in order to make it gluten-free. One of us ordered scallops. They made them GF by skipping the breadcrumbs. The scallops tasted like they... More

I just happened upon this place for lunch with a friend during a visit to Worcester. Apparently this was once an old tool house. The decor is very quaint. They were quite busy with two large groups. The waiter was honest that if we ordered from the menu, we would have a long wait for the food. We opted for... More

Recently had a family luncheon there.....40 people or so. The buffet was varied, delicious, and reasonably priced. I'd go there again.
