this is where breakfast is included for thee Crowne Plaza Hotel

It was not great on Saturday with a limited buffet. Sunday was much better when they were making eggs and omelets to order.

Enjoyed a simple lunch here while attending a convention. Great location. Food was good, not really great. Service was great and the free cookies for dessert were very enjoyable. I would eat here again.

Ate at the Max & Erma's in our Lofts Hotel downtown. Pricey breakfast buffet (only choice) at $15 each....paltry selection with poor food quality and made to order omelets were overcooked, slightly burned and/or too much butter/oil. Server received $1 from us - she could not tell us price or what was offered on the buffet acting as if she... More

My friends and I ate dinner there, later in the evening. Our waiter was very helpful and knowledgeable about things to do in the area. The food was great (we all ordered different things and were happy with our choices). If you like dessert, request the cookies. They make them fresh and bring them to you warm. We returned the...

We dined here for breakfast. The $16 price tag was too much for the food. However, the food was very good and the service the best in town.

We had a group of 20 for a late dinner (9:30 Saturday night) and even though they were open until midnight they refused to seat us - told us to go to Bucca. We ended up have a great meal at Bucca. Will tell all I know to boycott Max&E's!! Despicable!!

Was in town for a convention and went here because it was close to the hotel. The waiter was awesome but the kitchen was not on top of things, they sent out the wrong orders. We decided to give them another chance the next day, and order food and have it delivered. We were told 30-45 mins, no problem. After... More

I would like to sincerely apologize for the issues experienced while dining with us over the past weekend. Unfortunately, our computer systems were not operating correctly which is what caused the interruption in service from the kitchen. We do hope that you will give us the opportunity to serve you again. Dirk Bengel General Manager More

Very tasty salad and nice wait staff. Right across the street from Drury Inn. I especially enjoyed the cookie that came with my check.

We really enjoyed our dinner at Max and Erma's! The food was good, prices reasonable and the atmosphere was just what we were looking for. Our server was very nice and attentive even though it was very busy that night. We'll definitely return to try other menu items when we return to Columbus later this summer.
