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

Dined this evening with friends. We couldn't believe that in all our years of dining in the Philadelphia area that we had never heard of Max's! We enjoyed the chicken escarole soup to start and then my husband and I shared the clams casino appetizer. The best escarole soup ever...loaded with chicken; seasoned perfectly! Clams casino had a delicious cornbread... More

I know several people who have dined here and raved about the food, so I was a bit disappointed this evening. Our group tonight had an inconsistent experience with some really liking the food while others finding it uninspired. Portions varied tremendously from plentiful to scant. The menu is a la carte. Variety is sufficient tho not extensive. Prices are... More

My fried sea food combo was made with panko bread crumbs and was prepared well and tasted delicious. My wife said that her steamed clams and mussels in red sauce were to die for. This was the second time we were there in about 3 weeks. If the food stays like this we will keep gioing back.

We were looking for something small and homey for my 50th birthday. Not too fancy--just good food and a warm atmosphere. Max's was the perfect spot. There were four of us and we ordered so much food that they almost needed to bring up a second table to have enough room for it all. Everything we had was excellent. From... More
