There’s a lot to love about the whimsical neighborhood eatery known as Maxine’s on Shine. For starters, at how many Orlando restaurants do the owners step up to a microphone and either sing or do improv poetry? Maxine and Kirt Earhart take hospitality to a whole new level as they wander between the tables each night saying hello to guests, many of whom now feel like family after years of patronizing this bistro-esque spot.
Besides the welcoming vibe, stellar food and a highly curated wine list also make Maxine’s a local favorite. Live music plays on the petite stage most nights of the week and when the weather obliges, the street side patio with its twinkling strung lights feels like one of the quaintest spots in Orlando.
We recently discovered one more reason to head to Maxine’s: the Thursday Dinner for Two special.
Every Thursday, couples can enjoy a three-course meal including a starter, main entrée and dessert plus a glass of wine EACH! The price tag? Just $50/couple.
Take a look at the menu, which is subject to change:
This special menu is available on Thursdays beginning at 5pm. Cost is $50 per couple (+ tax and tip). Couples can add a bottle of wine for $20 and select from a wide variety of choices at that price point.
