My husband, parents and I came here for dinner. It wasn't very busy. We were greeted and taken to a booth. Our waitress, Melinda, got our drinks and orders. We ordered pretzels as an app. Well quite some time passed and I asked her about our appetizer and she said she would check. When she came back out she said... More

We ate dinner here as it was close to our hotel. The staff members were very welcoming and the service was quick. The food was OK - nothing special. Similar to Chili's, Friday's, etc., etc. The bar seemed pretty popular.

The staff was pleasant and we really had a nice time together. Fries are excellent and they are all you can eat so ask... More

Max & Erma's is a go-to restaurant for a good burger and fries! Cookies are the BEST! Service is usually excellent, with an occasional dip to very good.

Max and Erma's is my favorite restaurant - unfortunately there are no longer any of its restaurants in our area. So we were excited when we found one was going to be near the hotel we were stating at during vacation! We went there both nights we were at our hotel. This specific Max and Erma's had very good service.... More

Nice little place, easy to get to. Its above average food, service, and prices. Nothing will blow you away but its good enough to go back to when youre in the mood for it.

I do not usually comment on a chain restaurant but this one deserves it. The tortilla soup is good enough to have three times in one week. The chocolate cake is outstanding. I like cake and am fussy and this one was unbelievable.
