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.

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

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 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
