    The oysters are great when paired with a dirty martini. The chicken liver mousse is perfect. You can’t go wrong with the mussels, roast farm chicken, or Maude’s burger.
  • Tana B.
    Ummm the steak is out of this world, as well as the mashed potatoes. The French dip fondue is a great starter!

    Elite bar - great vibe, even better drinks!

    The food here was amazing! Best Salmon, Escargot​ and although I don't eat meat, my friends said the stake melted in their mouths. Even the dessert was delicious.

    french75 before dinner; french onion fondue or lyon salad. Cassoulet = 3 kinds of meat, marrow, beans and bread. Maudes is perfect

    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.
