We had never eaten at Max & Erma's before and did not know what was good on the menu. We had a very nice, attentive (but not hovering) waitress. We asked a lot of questions about the menu and she very patiently answered all and gave us time to make our decision. The service was fast and everything we ordered... More

We took a group of 34, mostly teens, to eat on our first night in Columbus. After a short wait, we were all seated together! The waitress had her hands full, but did an awesome job! Food was very good, and everyone was happy with our choice in restaurants! We hope to eat there again when the same waitress is... More

Right across from the convention center and just steps from our hotel, it was nice to eat here and be able to rest before returning to business. Staff was super nice. Burgers, fries, sandwiches and basic fare at decent... More

Very busy when we arrived with wait time estimated at 45 minutes. There were open seats at the bar which we were invited to take immediately. The bartender was efficient, funny, and knowledgeable.
