One night, some good friends of ours wanted to hang out for dinner, so we decided to find a place which was relatively inexpensive and that none of us had been to. This actually proved harder than we thought. I had recently read a review about Maisy's on Charles Street (here), and after some deliberation, we ended up going there.
For my dinner, I chose the California Chicken ($8.95) - Grilled chicken, provolone, avocado, alfalfa sprouts, tomato and red pepper coulis on a kaiser roll. In all honesty, I did not like my sandwich. The roll fell apart while I ate it, I didn't think the alfalfa sprouts worked well with the red pepper coulis.....and it was just kinda boring. I ate half and that was enough for me. I was disappointed...I LOVE taking food home! The sweet potatoes fries were good, though a bit overcooked.
Dan wisely chose the BBQ Chicken pizza ($12.95-14.95, I forgot!!) - a special for that night. Now, I am not a fan of BBQ pizzas, mainly because I don't particularly care for BBQ sauce, but even I could tell that this was one fine pizza. Dan LOVED it, and especially loved the corn, which I had never seen before on a BBQ pizza. My friends ordered a Margherita pizza ($11.95) which I really loved - especially the really large chunks of Mozzarella cheese. The pizzas are very thin, but they are very large and perhaps best for sharing.
They also offer $20 bottles of wine, which is really amazing, and I had a wonderful sauvignon blanc for $6.
Overall, despite my sad sandwich, I wouldn't hesitate to recommend this place. The price and size of their pizzas are such a good deal and the atmosphere of the restaurant is so chill. I loved the Christmas lights, which made the room look cozy, inviting, and quite romantic! I could totally see people coming here, grabbing a glass of wine or a beer, and sharing an appetizer and pizza. That would be a great night!
