Maxwell's Bar & Grill
Located between Covent Garden tube station and the Piazza, Maxwell’s Bar and Grill is a popular family-run business that has been up and running since the '70s. (It was originally located in Hampstead.) The menu offers a mix of generously-portioned British and American favourites, including potato skins, chips, steaks, surf ‘n’ turfs and fajitas. The drinks list is as sizeable as the food menu, offering everything from milkshakes and floats to cocktails. Plus there's that decadent Australian import: the freakshake.
Venue says: “Every Wednesday, it's all-you-can-eat sticky BBQ and buffalo hot wings with chips and a Sagres beer or thick shake for £17.50.”
