Excellent Steak

Good food, generous pour of wine. Nice restaurant for a small town. Service was fine. Didn't try dessert, so can't comment.

Very happy with Max's brick oven. Excellent food options, fresh ingredients, and well-executed dishes. I bit on the high dollar side, but returns good value for the price. Appetizer’s were good, as were our main courses. Desserts are assisted by great offerings from Kirchhoffs bakery (same owners).

Good restaurant for a date night. Sit outside if you like the atmosphere a bit quieter. They have a pretty good beer selection and the food is good.

I stopped by to enjoy some pizza and the lovely courtyard. It was a beautiful summer's evening and it was the perfect night to eat outside. I sat down and ordered a pizza. Right before the pizza came, a woman at the table next to me lit up a cigarette. I asked the waitress if smoking was allowed and she... More

I have eaten here a few times and to be honest, I never have found anything that just wowed me. I tried the "wood fired" pizza, but the crust is like a cracker and had no flavor. I've tried some other dishes and they were just o.k. The atmosphere is great though. I'd go back for appetizers and drinks. They... More

Was going to order a pizza and asked how big they were (if it would feed 2 people and we are not heavy eaters). I was told not by... More

We recently took a weekend getaway to Paducah and the weather was a disaster the first day. It poured most of the day and we were disappointed because we only had a day and a half to enjoy the town. During a break in the rain we got out to take a little walk and stumbled across Max's and saw... More
