I love the warm bread and fresh salads here. One of our favorites is the Laredo Steak, so tender it melts in your mouth. The third Street Chicken Salad is so good, portions are huge, you can get a half portion and still be full. Save room for cookies if you dare.

Max and Erma's was a great choice when visiting the downtown Norfolk area. It was within the mall which made it very nice to do a little shopping after. There was no wait to sit down. The service was out of this world, even though it was very busy. The food was nothing fancy, but it was great. There are... More

The best part of any meal for me is dessert - and to have warm chocolate chip cookies on a menu is really wonderful. Meal was fine but to top it off with cookies was a great finish. Waitress was friendly and service was quick. A better option than the food court.

We went here before a movie for drinks and appetizers. Beer was cold, and cheese fries were yummy, and big portion. It is a great place to relax and enjoy happy hour!

We have eaten here a few times over the years, and have never left with a burning desire to return. Wait staff is inconsistent (sometimes attentive, other times only adequate). Food is usually good, but nothing to rave about.

I ate lunch at Max and Erma's on a Sunday morning. The restaurant was empty so service was fast. We ordered off of the lunch menu. I had the Third St. Salad with a few modifications. It came to me as ordered. My friend had the tortilla soup and Greek Goddess salad. We both really liked our food. The lunc... More

Semi fast Food resturant was average. I think of Ruby Tuesdays. Located at the VB City center and has plenty of parking.

Be prepared to wait at dinner time. Service can be slow, so leave plenty of time before the movie starts! Food is straight-forward and not particularly inventive, but you get decent portions and tasty food for the money. Burgers are good.

I at the BEST club sandwich here that I have ever ate in my life. We just happened to stop here on a Wednesday and on Wednesdays you get 2 free cookies with any order and the cookies were delicious as well. I'd love to go here again. We also had good service and when we were there it wasn't... More
