The staff at the restaurant were incredible. They gave great travel tips and ski tips ... and were just fun! They accommodated food preferences 100% and went above and beyond to make our evening memorable. The food was great - big portions and we left full. Nice wine selection that is not over priced. And it was convenient - directly... More

The restaurant was open for evening.Not many places to eat on a Saturday night.The atmosphere was great.I had the Caesar salad with steak. Salad was good. Fish & Chips average.The desserts were great, chocolate torte was very chocolatey and the Sticky Date cake with rum sauce were superb. I would go back just for dessert.

The other night we had a meal that really says Max's is an awesome place for dinner. Our server was very friendly which added to our evening. It's great to have someone look after us, rather than getting the boring "Hi how are you?"..."ready to order?" How's your meal" "Have a nice day" bye bye..... We look forward to having... More

I like this restauant - it is just off the atrium in one area and in fact you can see the atrium from it. There are tables that you can pull together for large groups and the menu has all the normal things you would want from a ski town menu. The breakfast buffet was good.
