Recent visit on a busy October sat night, short wait for table, attentive waitress. Dry rubbed ribs were tender, meaty, full of flavor. Not stewed fall off the bone type. Though, I do dip in some of their sauce on the table. Garlic mashed potatoes and collard greens are great sides. If you like greens, get them here they taste... More

One may always count on delicious food at Max's. The pulled pork has just the right amount of spice and the garlic mashed potatoes are excellent. The cornbread is so good that you will definitely want to ask for more. Salad with a yummy house dressing is also served with each meal. The portions are very generous! My husband ordered... More

My husband and I were visiting family for the weekend who live in Red Hook. Three ordered the Beef Brisket, Slow Smoked, with a Horseradish Dipping Sauce. The brisket was very fatty! The other 2 family members ordered Max’s Half Chicken, Brined and Slow Smoked. I think they forgot the chicken in the oven definitely overcooked. Adding insult to injury... More

We dine here fairly often.....very good food at reasonable prices. On our last visit (9/17/15) we noticed a marked decline in service. While the food is still very good, the service was terrible. It took in excess of 30 mins to get our entrees (normally it takes 10 min). The cornbread they serve as an appetizer was stale. Although Thursday... More

An institution for about 20 years, this place deserves its accolades. Terrific corn bread to start, a big frie dly bar, and good variety on the menu. But its the ribs. Share a rack, revel in the grits and collard greens.

Stopped in for a late dinner after being on the road for 9 hours to visit Bard Conservatory. Food was great, ambiance cozy, and the staff super fantastic.

Great hospitality from manager Dan. Best ribs. Not drenched in barbecue sauce. Just plain smoked ribs at it's best.

Years ago I would take my family to Max's and always had a fantastic meal. However recently I've gone with friends two separate occasions and while the food was great, the service was so poor I don't think we will head back for a while. I wonder if the difference was being in the bar, where we were, instead of... More
