This was an unexpected gem. Tucked neatly in a residential neighborhood under the Walt Whitman Bridge minutes from the airport and adjacent to the river, this little place packs a lot of high quality Louisiana cuisine in an unassuming location. The fried oysters were huge and succulent. The seafood jambalaya was rich and full of shrimp, crawfish, chicken, okra, and... More

Went to Max's a few years ago and really enjoyed the food. Always meant to go back. My husband's sister and her husband invited us out for dinner and we suggested Max's as it was mid-way between our house and theirs. We had 5:00PM reservations which was good since an hour or so later it got really crowded. Our server... More

Interesting but mixed experience. The restaurant is attractive and very nicely appointed. There is a bar area and a large dinning room. I liked the decor. The menu offers nice variety of seafood, meat and pasta dishes.There are wines by the glass and variety of beers. My husband described his crabcakes as "the best he ever had". My schnitzel was...

Folks, it pains me to actually scribe what I am about to review of my beloved Max's Cafe. We had parlayed a daughter's college graduation/dinner celebration until this past Sunday evening, the 22nd of February. We reserved for a party of 9, and, upon arrival, were seated in the (largest dining area) upstairs from the bar. (6:45pm) A new young... More

Just returned from lunch. We had reservations for tomorrow evening to celebrate my husband's birthday, but, unfortunately, the weather report is calling for snow. No worries! Since we didn't know if we would be able to make dinner reservations for tonight, we decided on a late lunch. We had looked forward to returning since our first dinner experience with friends...

One of the best meals ever! The atmosphere was wonderful with the wood and exposed brick creating a warm feeling. The service was on point at all times and management also checked in with us at our table. The food was beautifully presented and taste terrific. Can't wait to go back again and bring friends.

Been to Max's several times and have never been disappointed., The bartender/server was excellent and made it a point to check back with us. The mussels were the best we've ever had and I will be taking a friend there to sample the happy hour food and drinks.,

We live literally 15-20 mins from here and this was our first time here. We walked into the bar and were welcomed immediately. Our server Ashley was very friendly and we had very little wait for our food. The food was delicious and the perfect portion. Thoroughly enjoyed it and will definitely be back!

The service was friendly and nice. They have a nice menu offering. Based on what I read about Max's they specialize in mussels. My wife ordered them and they were ok. Not great. Not any better, bigger or fresher than most anywhere else. I ordered the salmon and shrimp. It too was ok. Nothing special and a bit dry. Nice... More
