Excellent lunch

We stopped here for lunch and we loved it all. Being an ice tea drinker, I was very impressed with their ice tea- it was made from loose tea leaves & had a great flavor.

We had supper here with a friend and it was a nice experience. The live entertainment was really nice and usually I'm not very big on that sorta thing while eating. The food was yummy and portions good. Service was friendly enough but super slow. We had a long wait on everything and tables seated after us were seen to... More

I visit Nelson regularly and Max & Irma's is a favourite stop. The atmosphere is warm friendly and vibrant. Evenings there is often live entertainment, typically one of the many talented local musicians from Nelson (Canada's #1 small arts town). The pasta dishes are always excellent but there are many other superb menu options. Put Max & Irma's on your... More

The atmosphere, service, food here are all a cut above. Nice variety of both lighter fare and more hearty. The homemade desserts were excellent as well...we had homemade cheesecake with whipped cream and chocolate ganache and homemade peach coconut Amaretto ice cream. A very nice variety of menu items.

This is a cosy little spot just a block off of Main Street. The service was friendly..but just a little slow as they were so busy and only had one server. The slower service did not detract from the delicious food however...worth the wait!

We went to this place with 8 people and everyone said their meals were delicious. Everything that I had was delicious. However, both my mother and law and I had upset stomachs the following day. It could have been just a virus or it could have been their tortilla chips (which was the only thing that her and I had... More

Food was great and the small restaurant has a nice atmosphere with great service. We had the beef po'boy and the chicken wrap both with salad and house dressing. Best place to sit is at the window.
