We went to Max's on a Sunday night. The restaurant decor feels cold and not very inviting. I ordered the ribs which were good...nice that they offer you your choice of 3 sizes. My husband's crab cakes were more filling than crab and did not taste like they were homemade. The cornbread that was brought to the table was delicious.... More

Since I'm from Memphis originally I can say this is very good and a great place to eat. Lots of choices, nice bar area. Lookout for the Dragon!

After a couple of positive experiences at this restaurant we developed a false confidence about it. Last night after an early movie we stopped for a quick meal. The wait staff was distracted and forgetful, the food barely warm and the brisket was dry and over-cooked. It was not especially crowded for a Friday night, so the staff shouldn't have... More

Little gem of a restaurant in Red Hook, NY. Was delighted with my choice of crab cakes. They weren't greasy and were light and delicious. My sides were collard greens which could have been seasoned more but were still delicious. Their white cheddar cheese mac 'n cheese was just "out of this world." The best mac 'n cheese ever. The...

My wife and I have been here MANY times over the years, and it became our go-to place for a quick delicious B-B-Q on movie night, or a Sunday afternoon/evening. We gave them the benefit of the doubt the last couple visits, perhaps an "off night," etc. I am very sad to say last night was the worst, and totally... More

Never have I felt as invisible as the day I went to Max's. From the person at the door to our waitress all were sucking on their teeth and looking elsewhere. The salads were not fresh and the entrees were mediocre at best. Should have opted for Albany Post Roadhouse across the street.

Max's Memphis Barbeque presents various barbequed or slow-cooked dishes with Southern-style sides; you can order full plates or sandwiches. Nice ambience: clean, full bar at entry and dining room off to the side with a high ceiling painted grey with white beams giving illusion of a rehabbed farmhouse. Memphis R & B, pop-soul music played. Fresh cornbread served at the... More

Terrific restaurant in Red Hook! It's been around for a long time and always wonderful. Lovely atmosphere, relatively quiet even though always busy. Great drinks, wine and beer. Comfort food and they are very accommodating to vegetarians as well. The service is always excellent! We love this place. Many choices of restaurants in the Hudson Valley and this one is... More
