Beautiful courtyard, pretty good food

I arrived about 20 minutes before closing time on a Monday night. I was travelling to Paducah and didn't realize what time they closed. The server and host were very kind and said not to worry about the time. My server was very attentive and made some good recommendations. I had the salad and... read more

The Jumbalaya was zingy and excellent! Casual, but comfortable, atmosphere. My picky wife chose the salmon salad and was very pleased.

We went here for drinks and appetizers. It has a lovely little courtyard. Very fun place to sit. I would love to try here for dinner.

We had dinner reservations, thank goodness, on Saturday night which happened to be the night of one of the high school proms. A number of elegantly dressed youth had dinner at Max's prior their festivities at the Carson Centre. Our meal was the special of the night, maple glazed chicken served on pasta with fresh asparagus. Delicious! We were highly... More

Visited this quaint downtown restaurant while passing thru Paducah. So glad we choose Max's! The nightly special sounded wonderful but my husband and I decided to try the pizza. Ordered the Italian Sausage (and) the Aurora. Both were very, very good!! My husband loves mussels so he couldnt pass up a chance to try them.....he said those were some of... More

This place was not horrible, but far from what I would consider 4-5 stars. First, our drinks and food took forever to get (slow service)... Second, I paid $7.00 for the worst Ceasar salad I have ever had (iceberg lettuce with 2 grape tomatoes, 2 croutons, and hardly and dressing)... Then the main courses came: I got the Aurora pizza...

I recommended to come here and get the salmon. I am so glad I did. This place was nice and relaxing. First the waitress I had was really nice and accommodating she had suggestions and answered all questions without any problems. I got there as they open so it wasn't busy. But it started to pick up as I left.... More

We've tried all the downtown Paducah restaurants over the past 10 years and always come back to Max's where we find consistently great food, service and our favorite wine on their wine list. Because we know they are often very busy, we always call several days ahead of time to reserve a table especially when there is a performance at... More

My husband and I were staying at the excellent Fox Briar Inn downtown. Our homelike suite had a kitchen, and all we really wanted was a relaxing takeout meal before we walked over to the Christmas concert. Max's Brick Oven is just across the alley, so it seemed like a perfect place to get a pizza and take it home.... More

I ate at this restaurant on a busy night in Paducah. There was a christmas concert at the Carson Center, so a party of 5 of us had to eat at the bar due to them being completely booked (like all the restaurants were in Paducah that night). The bartender was very accommodating. I ordered the lasagna with a salad,... More
