After a long day of driving this was great comfort food.

This restaurant was clean but a bit noisy for my taste. After a long drive I found it tough to concentrate on the conversation when it was so noisy. But the food was very good. Especially wonderful was the calamari. Yummy.

The only thing I have ever ordered at Max's is chicken fingers which I personally think are the best. After frying them, they are dipped in mild, medium, or hot sauce and served with blue cheese or ranch dressing. Served with fries, they satisfy my chicken finger craving about every few months.

We were spending the night at an airport hotel and the hotel staff recommended Max's. Definitely a good call. Max's has a diner kind of feel and decor with a huge varied menu. The server staff was very prompt, polite and attentive. Pricing was a very good value for the money. Our meals were prepared exactly as ordered, very hot... More

I have eaten at Max's several times on visits to Buffalo and have never been disappointed. The Friday Fish fry is delicious! You can get it as a regular meal, or all you can eat. We also love their fried pickles! We've also enjoyed their beef on weck. Great nachos too. The waitresses are very friendly. Definitely a good stop!

We ate here as it was close to the airport/hotel after reading the online reviews and menu. We arrived Saturday evening at 7 to find an uncrowded dining room and were promptly seated and served our drinks. Our waitperson "Lindsay" was outstanding: personable and knowledgeable (without being overly chatty) and with a good sense of humor. The food arrived quickly... More

Spotted this place going to the airport. It was around 2 pm and between crowds. Liked the atmosphere and our server was excellent. Food was very good and portions were large. Good selection of cold beer. Wish I had room for dessert. Reasonably priced. I would definitely recommend and would go again.

liked the 4-8 daily happy hour - in the bar area. This included 1/2 price appetizers and a discount on drinks. The wine was the only thing we found way over priced. The service in the bar area was very good and the servers were friendly.
