    Phenomenal cocktails to start and excellent food to finish. Have not had a bad dish at Maude's. Recommend the country chicken and anything that comes with their bread.

    Delightful chartreuse smash. Good Sazerac. Friendly bartenders and a nice atmosphere. Wish the bar were a little longer for more seating, but we'll definitely be back.

    The chilled seafood tower ($175)—overflowing with oysters, clams, shrimp, mussels, crab legs and more—really steals the show. A voracious appetite and/or several friends is strongly recommended. Read more

    The smashes are sensational- chartreuse is my fave. The fries & gnocchi were out of this world. Also had the beef tartare & shaved veg salad. Really enjoyed everything but those were the standouts.
