The meal was good and arrived quickly. Our waitress was very good at the beginning, but appeared irritated that we stayed a little longer talking...we tipped well knowing that we were staying longer than just the meal. I would recommend and it's attached to the Crowne Plaza - convenient.

Great food selection. Friendly servers, but do not be in a rush. Went during convention event and they are understaffed, but food was worth the wait

Nice selection of food. Restaurant needs to work on a way to keep the line moving since the omelette station location tends to block the line.

Very close to Crowne Plaza (like right across the driveway close). We had a late lunch on a Saturday. We had good service, the food was good and fairly priced. It was nice to sit outdoors on their patio. Went back the next morning for the Sunday Brunch (included with our hotel stay) had we had to pay for it,... More

We ate at 89 Fish & Grill, just next door, the day before. It was much more expensive there. We liked the food as much, if not more, at Max & Erma's. Also, they served larger portions & we got the food more quickly at Max & Erma's. Jeff was our attentive & exceptionally friendly server. He & the other... More

I had a business lunch here. The restaurant is decorated beautifully. We were served quickly and had fabulous service. The food however, was forgettable. We ordered chips and guacamole for an appetizer. The chips were not good and the guacamole was tasteless. I ordered a small salad that had shrimp. The shrimp were cooked perfectly but the salad was just... More

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
