Staff is friendly, nice atmosphere. That's where it ends. My Chineese chicken salad was the worst. The salad was inedible, dressing tasted like cleaning product. I did eat the peanut chicken, which was tasty. Honestly if the waitress had come back to check sooner, I would have returned the salad. Husband had turkey club which he enjoyed, while complaining about... More

The food here is not what it used to be, according to the legends and visits when I was younger. It seems more like a coffee shop now and the quality of the food is not high. However, the worst part of our experience was when I returned to the table from the bathroom to find that the waitress was... More

Yes, Max's has the best Patty Melt I have ever had in my entire life! And I've had a lot of Patty Melt's! The rest of the food on the menu is pretty good. I can't attest to the entire menu, but as with most restaurants, even the highly rated ones, no restaurant is gonna do the entire menu all... More

The menu was long but the prices are high. The food is generous but the prices are high. We had a good dinner but left feeling that it wasn't anything special. Would go back but will be cautious because of the prices.

At dinner we had special dietary requests and the waiter was very accomodating. Breakfast the waitress ignored us after we asked dietary considerations.

Sandwiches, soups, salads, entrees to suit anyone. Restaurant is very nicely decorated and clean with exceptional service. Pies, cakes and pastries look fabulous and I had the key lime pie(small for two) which was excellent. Appetizers are generous for light eaters so don't need entrees as Max's known for generous portions-so took half home of the Thai Tenders. Don't miss... More

I have always have been a big fan of Max's Diners and even the original Opera Cafe in SF, but now that I've moved to Reno, it's too far. Max's has the best Patty Melt have ever had in my life! And believe you me, I have had a lot of Patty Melts in my day! So, when I found... More

We had our office party at Max's. Extremely satisfied with their accommodations! We had a banquet room, Max's set up a bar for us and a buffet dinner. The food was great, the selections were great. Very festive, decorations were nice. We had a band and dance floor with good Rock and Roll music. Max's provided free valet service. All... More

We had breakfast and the omelettes and corn flake french toast was out of this world. Best breakfast I have had in a long time. The service was a bit slow on the coffee, but well worth the wait for such great food. Nice simple menu. Dinners looked great too.
