Finger licking

Came here with a group of friends for a gathering. Bar was full of bourbon selection, great draft availability and the bartender was welcoming. To top it off, the brisket and the beacon is top notch quality, 2 thumbs up, licking fingers!

Restaurant served delicious southern style barbecue - the pulled pork, brisket, ribs, cheese grits, crispy potatoes (fries) were all excellent!

Once upon a time Max's was a reliable place to land for a burger, ribs, pulled pork and a drink. Servers were top notch and well trained. Not so anymore. Ribs were very tough ,sauces were unrefined, sides were blah . Our server spilled a sizable pile of BBQ sauce on the side of a dinner plate came back and... More

The sign says best BBQ in the Hudson Valley- I haven't been to many more so I can't say whether this is true, but I have been to a lot of BBQ elsewhere and this is really very good food. Curiously eating BBQ when it's snowing outside and you're tired from a long day in the cold gives it a... More

Nice atmosphere, we like the decor, modern but cozy food is very good, if you don't, like me, go for smoked, there are many other options. mixture of people, popular with Bard students and locals

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
