We ate here with a whole bunch of other convention folks and it was very good food in very good time. 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.

Prices matched most hamburger places. We were very hungry but not the burger we expected. The manager was wonderful getting us seated so quickly being there were 16 of us.

I recently stayed at the Lofts hotel and had room service from Max and Erma's. It was really great. The food came to the room quickly, was hot, and the staff was very friendly. They had all of the condiments and everything you could think to ask for. They have very good pricing and the food seemed to have tasted... More

Went there for Mother's Day dinner with family. Good variety on menu. But food was just okay and my silverware was dirty with dried on food. Asked for my dinner to be cooked well done but my chicken was a little under-cooked. On the positive side, nice atmosphere and great strawberry lemonade.

we went for lunch and I had the philly cheese steak sandwich . It was very good but we sat in the lower level and it felt like a basement. I went back for breakfast buffet and the food was average . WE sat upstairs and that was much nicer..

We got room service from Max and Erma's because it was right beside the hotel we stayed at. The service was quick and friendly, but the food was just average. We were too tired to go out, so it was definitely convenient.

This is the place to go for happy hour. Draft beers are only $2 and apps are half priced. Coming from NY, this was a HUGE bargain. Their fried pickles are mouth watering.
