I am here at Max's restaurant in Redwood City having breakfast with my Father and ordered some toast with my eggs and bacon. However the waiter told me that they no longer serve toast only biscuits. When I ask why he replied that they felt making toast was to much of an inconvenience for them and that by offering only... More

Needed a place to have lunch in a hurry. Sandwiches are very tasty and well made. Love the atmosphere and friendly staff! Only complaint is limited parking due to parking lot being shared with shopping center.

Maxes restaurant has great food and great service, one of my favorite things about this restaurant is when you order something specific cooked a certain way they don't raise their eyebrows they just make whatever you want, this is very refreshing when your on a strict diet. Prices are reasonable and the workers are really nice, two thumbs up

We have enjoyed meals at a number of the Max's locations in the Bay Area, but our experience at the one in Redwood City was less than stellar; we most probably will not return. Service was wanting - our waiter clearly had his thoughts somewhere other than on helping his customers. Our opinion of the food was undoubtedly colored a... More

Celebrated my sister's birthday here - a party of seven, we made a reservations and were seated at a large booth in the back, upon arrival. Max's has a large menu with all kinds of delicious appetizers, salads, main courses and DESSERT! After a round of cocktails - the lemon drops were fabulous, we ordered dinner. This time I had...

My parents and I stopped in for a late lunch. Not knowing Redwood City, they had been here before with my aunt who is in a care home. Interesting place. I mean, it was late afternoon, and just looking at the set up, I'm sure it gets crowded, especially the bar area. We were given a booth towards the back.... More

I hate writing this, because the food is good and fir the bay area very reasonable, but I have had the worst and rudest service from the male staff at this restaurant, and they all drip with offensive cologne which is ridiculous for A place where you are supposed to be able to taste the food. There are two nice... More
