Five of us stopped here at 2:45 in the afternoon to eat a late lunch and found only one couple eating but no staff at all. The woman that was eating told us that we would have to yell to get any service. We tried but got no response. My wife walked back to the kitchen and found no one... More

After being quickly seated, we sat for at least 5 min before a server came to the table. To speed things up, we ordered our meals and drinks together. The server brought the drinks and then disappeared for at least 15 min. When she brought our meals, the food was lukewarm, one of the salads didn't contain what it was... More

Service was good. Enjoyed the meal. Nothing fancy but met our needs - and there was no line on Friday night (unlike the other restaurants around)

I have always been a fan of Max & Erma's but like most franchises some are run better than others. This location is definitely one of the better ones.The menu has modernized nicely with many of the old favorites remaining. A good stop for dinner.

Wow - snippy and inefficient server, who was put off that I had to send him back twice for clean silverware. Who uses silverware with spoo on it? Clean out your dishwasher filters, or just have your staff pay better attention. Salt and pepper on the table....yes, please. Don't make me have to go get it. Filthy floor - if... More

We were staying close by, the weather was not good, so we decided to remain close to the hotel. I have to agree with some of the other reviews...The food was quite good. We had fish and chips and fried shrimp and had no complaints whatsoever. It took a bit of time for us to be acknowledged (we sat at... More

My wife and I were staying at the Fairfield Inn across the way. It's an easy walk and the hotel provided you with a $2 coupon. The food was ok but I ordered an avocado Cobb salad that didn't come with any avocado. It's an ok chain and the service was attentive.

Let me start out by saying I love their food. The fajita's are my favorite as well as their specialty salads. It's the service that I can no longer tolerate. On the last 3 or 4 visits, the service has continued to be a problem. We always go about 2:00 pm or 3:00 pm on a Saturday to miss the... More
