Excellent Food

Friendly staff, good quality food and coffee. Tasted like the chef's cared about their product. Smaller space but worth it.

Very good lunch while passing through on a Sunday. New staff was wonderful, friendly and accommodating. I had the Turkey/Cranberry/Brie sandwich which was okay. Nice presentation, good in house bread... more like a tomato/lettuce sandwich. Husband enjoyed his Philly steak sandwich. House wine was very good.

This is a good stop if you don't want to leave your hotel. They don't serve any specialty foods, just good old style cooking. Good for seniors or families. I visited the restaurant when our parents came to visit and stayed in the hotel. They didn't have energy to visit the downtown, so they just ate at Max. They thought... More

This restaurant is a highway hotel restaurant. Being a young couple we felt surrounded by elderly groups. The food was average at best. It was conveniently located in our hotel. It's a pretty easy walk downtown to find some real restaurants and pubs.

We were looking for a restaurant that had gluten free options and was recommended to try here. I was very impressed by the gf options. The meal was excellent as well as the service. It had a very nice ambiance and was clean and quiet. We didn't actually stay in the rooms so can't comment on that however what we... More

Max Restaurant has been one of our regular restaurants on business trips to Fernie and the good has always been excellent. It is never very busy but the food is always great!

The steak dinner was amazing! One of the best steaks we've had in a long long time. It was cooked perfectly! For those who prefer something else, the menu has plenty of variety. Great dessert choices as well. Service was wonderful! All in all a great evening!

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.
