Surprised

Never heard of Max's but I'm so glad I was introduced to this little gem. Great Happy Hour food and drink specials. $5 vodka drinks, wine, and food. Went with friends and we shared perfectly cooked fried calamari, two types of mussels, Caprese flat bread, and warm crab dip. We sat at the beautiful... read more

We went back to Max's today after a superb meal last weekend and had the same result. Absolutely fantastic fresh seafood and Jersey Fresh sides in a beautifully restored building dating from the late 1800's. The waiter gave us time to relax between courses and was very attentive. One of our party commented that we received the same food and... More

My wife and I on a cloudy 4th of July had a great "Linner" dinning experience between lunch and dinner. We were the only ones at the bar because it was early. Jack at the bar was amazing. Oysters, mussels, chicken parm and homemade bread pudding and apple tart. We felt guilty because we had such a great time without... More

Stopped for dinner on a recent Sunday. The food itself was good, quite good in some circumstances, but the meal took entirely too long with long gaps between seeing a waiter to even get additional drinks. The food was good enough that I will go back and try again, hopefully with better service. I will say, the place is very... More

We were looking for a new place to eat on our way home from a long and exhausting day in PA. On a whim, my husband entered Glouscester County in a restaurant search engine and suddenly remembered that 35 years ago, while working in Gloucester City, he would have lunch in a "hole in the wall place" under the Walt...

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
