Super cheesy!

Ordered 2 large pizzas; one their special and the other pepperoni. Friday night was super busy, but our take-out pies were ready in 30 minutes. Loaded with cheese. Homemade crust. Not greasy. Good stuff.

We are on the Island every holiday from Spring to Fall and we never miss picking up pizza at Max's ! It has become a well loved tradition for our family!

Whenever my friends and I are in Surf City we make a point to get pizza from Max's. One of my favorite places to get pizza. Cheesy and delicious!

We live nearby and although we don't eat pizza often ourselves, when friends come by we often get one here for lunch. Everyone now includes it on their to-do list when they come to visit. Max's Pizza is always a request!

First time at Max's, parking lot was full but our party of four was seated fairly quickly for a summer night at Surf City. Staff was accommodating and friendly. I can't complain about the food, we had a pizza and meatball sub. The food was very good and the prices are reasonable. Serving time on the food was a little... More

We've been to Max's four times now and have not had a bad experience yet. It can get crowded and loud during the summer. Pizza has always been good...not great, but a good value compared to some other venues on the island. I usually just get the spaghetti and it has always been good. One ding on our last trip... More

If you like cheesy pizza, this is your place! I was thoroughly pleased with the service and the quality of the food. As with all pizza, it's even better reheated so be sure to take it with you if you can't eat it all there. Generous sizes and great toppings to choose from.

We stopped in here as part of our week vacation. We were not expecting anything special. We ordered the steak and mushroom sub. The bread was fantastic. One of the best cheese steaks we've had. Will definitely go back!! It helped that this was the cheapest meal the entire time! You must try!

Pizza has too much cheese and not good taste. Salads look like they opened bag and I saw brown pieces. And $4 to add salad like that is outrageous! Waitress said lasagna was frozen I asked .Would never go back again!
