Maxine’s On Shine
337 North Shine Avenue
Orlando, Florida 32803

Maxine’s On Shine is the a small trendy restaurant located in the Downtown Orlando area just South of Colonial on a road called Shine Avenue. The restaurant has had a few different names in the past including Bravissimo and Shine’s Neighborhood Kitchen. The main constant is that Maxine’s On Shine still maintains its quality Italian and Mediterranean cuisine along with some other specialties and it still has the charm of a neighborhood restaurant literally in the middle of a residential neighborhood. While the restaurant squad isn’t sure how this restaurant made it past the city zoning boards with this location, it is a great location to visit. The place is extremely charming yet still upscale. Impressive enough to take friends and family there or even a date. Brunch items include mimosas, salads, waffles, omelettes, and skillets. Dinner and lunch include items such as chicken marsala, shrimp and grouper maltese, past, clams and mussels, lamb and other Italian and continental specialties.

The current owner, Kirt Earhart, renamed the restaurant Maxine’s after his wife. Kirt can be seen operating the restaurant and enjoys meeting and speaking with his customers. This passion combined with Maxine’s On Shine’s decor and quality definitely give it a feel of being the neighborhood cafe that stands out. There is indoor and outdoor seating and many times you will find live music playing on a small stage in the center of the restaurant. Be sure to check out the private lounge which can be reserved with advanced notice.
