We sat outside but very busy bar inside - have good happy hour but you have to sit inside. Burgers are main attraction - mine was stuffed with onions - very good and my brother had the burger with grilled cheese as bun - he liked it. Best app is spinach w/feta - fab! Tuna chopped with chips was horrible... More

It doesn't matter when you go here, it will always be busy. Friends tell me try smash burger or Plan b burger. Nope....This is still the best. Perfectly cooked, presented, great tasting bun. They even have a shrimp,burger, tuna burger and veggie burger. I don't think Max does anything bad. Keep up the good work. Will definitely be back.

Been here twice, tried their Grilled Cheese Burger last time and now their Fun Guy Burger. Fun Guy Burger is definetly the best of all burgers I've tasted! ...get it with sweet potato fries and a decent draft beer (IPA for me). (Regarding the Grilled Cheese Burger, you'll taste more of the grilled cheese than the burger part...)

This place would have scored an Excellent rating if it wasn't so difficult to get in because they are always packed. Which that attests to their good food quality. The burgers are diverse and you can pretty much get a burger any way you want. The size of the burgers are terrific so bring your appetite. The fries good and... More

Max Burger is the top choice for my boyfriend and I when we want to eat out and are in the mood for burgers. The restaurant is usually packed but then again I've only gone on the weekend. But otherwise good variety of burgers, unique choices, and really good sweet potato fries!

The place has good atmosphere ( bustling and boisterous from cheery individuals). The wait staff is relatively inexperienced but seem to have high expectations when it comes to tipping. The food is just ok with a lot of fried options. I ordered the portobello burger and found the contents weak on vegetables (except for the oily mushroom slice). I got... More

We've eaten at MB several dozen times and never had an off meal. In fact, we think they get a little better each time. One of our favorite go-to restaurants in West Hartford. Highly recommend. Very popular, so off-hours best for quickest seating.

We went on a weeknight and there was a 30 minute wait for 2 people. They took my phone number at the door and texted us when our table was ready. The restaurant was very crowded but it was a nice atmosphere. The service was fine, not overly friendly though. We had the Sgt. Peppercorn burgers which were decent and... More

Went here on a snowy Friday night and enjoyed great food, beer and service- burgers and salmon were delish!
