Excellent food and service

We had a delightful meal at Max's. Just off the freeway with easy access and parking. Our server Sandy gave us great service and the Cabbage soup was excellent as was the chopped salad and chicken piccata. It would have been five stars except that the bathroom was untended with an overflowed toilet... read more

Creative food or simple favorites (including to-die-for desserts). Add drinks or not with excellent service, comfortable seating, and warm atmosphere. What's not to enjoy?

I have been here several time. It has a great visual appeal, but I found the food to be overprices and the staff with a little attitude problem.

The matzoh ball soup is out of this world, helped cure my cold and the service was excellent. The person preparing my take-out order followed my picky instructions to the letter insuring the soup would have a nice ride home. This is the best soup in the world. Just ask my mother-in-law.

Our favorites are the home made chicken pot pie, honey baked chicken, and matzo ball soup. The salads are also very good and large portions. Large selection of pies -which are... More

The main reason I will not return here is because of the poor service from our waitress and her poor attitude. She started with straight attitude when I asked to split our ticket 5 guests on one tix and 4 guests on the 2nd tix. I asked for a to go container five times. We are use to the gratuity... More

Beautifully elegant, artfully designed dishes, and very unique food. I enjoyed a salad and it is "first cabin" as they say. Tucked away right next to Holiday Inn Hotel. It has a wonderful bakery where you can purchase gourmet pies, cookies, etc.
