Great Lunch

I went here for lunch one afternoon and was pleased with my tasty, filling sub. I had a large turkey sub and it was very good. The sweet tea and chips were great additions. A cozy little place with good food!

We ordered carry out from Max's as we pulled into Topsail Island over New Years. We were road weary from traveling and this pizza was just what the doctor ordered for our late arrival into town. We had the supreme, the cheese and the Hawaiian. DELICIOUS!

So yesterday while on an outing I had an experience I don't think I'll soon forget! As requested for a "final request" (aka - bucket list experience) of a very vintaged aged individual a group of my peers and I tracked to Topsail Beach to fulfill that wish. All was perfect at Topsail Beach, North Carolina and the Topsail Beach... More

Good pizza. A little too much cheese for my liking, but good pizza. I'd go there again. Asking for less cheese.

Max's may have pizza in its name but the subs are what we go to Max's for. My daughters like the meatball and the Italian subs. My wife likes the steak and mushrooms sub with grilled onions and I like any of those options. I do like the pizza as well and sometimes get that but the rest of the... More

The food was great and Nikki was a great waitress. We had hamburgers, manicotti and salads. We will definitely go back again. Thanks Nikki for making our visit enjoyable. And a special thanks to our dear friends for a wonderful time.

We were so thankful Max's is open during the afternoons even on Sundays. We were there around 4PM which helped us get on the road. Great pizza and service. We will be back again for sure.

Just the worst pizza I've ever had and I'm not picky. There's a place out near Harris Teeter who does some delivery called JT's Brick Oven Pizza. They know how to make pizza.
