Ok I've always liked there food so last spring I was in w/ 2 other people for breakfast right when the doors opened. We were the only ones in there so she wasn't busy. She had misspelled an item on the specials board so we asked what it was and the server / owner was so RUDE! Saying that it... More

This is a great place for wood fired thin crust pizza, some of the best I have ever had, but that is not all they have . All their food is made on site, their soups are excellent as are their many other items on the menu. It may be a little loud when the restaurant is busy but not... More

Food was so-so, small portions, dismal condiments. Felt like an amateur run place. Wouldn't go back. Nice idea but lacking real passion as an eatery.

My husband and I shared the delicious house salad with a Grecco Pizza. Honestly, I have had more than my share of pizza but this was amazing. I think it was the combination of the quality of the cheese, veggies and oh that crust. Yum yum yum! Sorry no room for dessert.

We chose Max and Irma’s Kitchen for our last meal in Nelson, and it was an absolute delight! Cheerful decor, friendly service, delicious gourmet pizza, and BC wine. The table at the window gave us a view of the street and its activity, and one day we might check out the guest suite; it seems a cozy haven on a... More

We go to Max and Irma's regularly - the food and service are always good and consistent. The ambience is quite nice, but can get a noisy and echoes a bit. Great spinach salad!!!

Local, offbeat restaurant, great for lunch. Oven fired pizza, and great daily specials. Love the salad dressing, daily soups are delicious. Monday night is ethnic night.
