Took a chance

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.

We enjoyed the atmosphere of the restaurant and the bar; menu's provided good choice variety, and the bar was comfortable with good selection of drinks, and knowledgeable and friendly bartenders; accessed directly from lobby of hotel.

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.

Large restaurant not very busy when we ate. Seated quickly. Large menu so lay-out explained to us. Placed drinks order and waited. Placed food order and waited. In the end both drink and food very good. Only disappointment was the waiting! Good menu and large servings. Guests of hotel receive coupons towards cost of meal. Recommended!

Wow. Simply delicious, tasty and reasonable place for dinner, whether you are staying at the attached Holiday Inn or just in town. A new menu with lots of great choices. Very generous portions, so you just might have some takehomes. The soups are yummy, especially the potato soup. The Lasagna just melts in your mouth. The red sauce is so... More

Restaurant is attached to a below average hotel but the food is way above average! 5 stars for quality comfort food at a great price.

We generally eat here when we stay at the Best Western next door. The service is always prompt and friendly. I like the way that they always take the drink order as soon as you are seated. The retro, dark paneled décor is very attractive. Appetizers are really good and the fish and chips are excellent. Big portions too. We... More

This restaurant was recommended on a previous trip by the staff at Best Western Hotel(right next door to Max's). We looked forward to a repeat of a great meal. We were not disappointed. Music was enjoyable, but perhaps a bit loud.

I was very pleasantly surprised at Max's Classic American Grill in the Holiday Inn near Buffalo Airport. I stayed here a few years ago and the previous tenant was terrible. Max's is a nice pub style establishment that provides honest fare with good service. I had the meatloaf dinner that was quite enjoyable. Large portion, very substantial meal accompanied by... More
