Definitely expect to spend a few bucks here. I love when my steak is cooked how I ordered it. The sides were delicious and everything was cooked very well. We had a few glasses of Pinot Grigio each that didn't help our bill out much. Most meals are served a la carte, which sucks because the sides are about $6-$7.... More

I went to Max's for lunch this week hoping the salmon on the Tuscan salad would be the one I remember! It was absolutely delicious seasoned and cooked perfectly. The service is always good, but to enjoy that lovely meal was great. Hopefully they fired the person who served the burned salmon and promoted whomever cooked that meal. Very pleased!

We dined at Max's on Friday evening for our anniversary. We had all the time in the world and really just wanted to enjoy a leisurely dinner. The folks at Max's were happy to oblige. THE SERVICE WAS SLOW. It took a while to be greeted. When we were greeted it was by a timid girl who really didn't give... More

Went there after going to the Basketball Hall of Fame. Ordered a turkey club sandwich which came with pickles and the aforementioned chips. The sandwich was very good and loaded with bacon and the pickles appeared to be home made and slightly sweet. We sat at the bar and the service was good. Had a craft beer with the lunch... More

My gf and I went away for the weekend and looked for a restaurant to eat at on Saturday night. We made a reservation for 6:45pm and when we arrived it was not busy and were seated right away. I ordered 12 Cherry Stone Clams on the half shell. They were chilled nicely and were fresh. I ordered the "Max... More

Arrived at 8:15 on a Thursday night. Not crowded, but we had a long wait for our dinners. Staff was friendly. I ordered the cherry stone raw clams, and they were good. The fried calamari were incredibly greasy and heavy. Full of hot peppers, BUT I had to spit out a hard substance. I had 3 pieces of small plastic... More

I've been to Max's dozens of times since it opened, about once a month for lunch, and probably a half dozen times for dinner. It has been usually very good. I've sampled much of the menu, and my dinner favorites are Filet Oscar, a popular special, and the Salmon. My lunch favorites are the Hollywood Cobb Salad and the Max... More

We went for lunch and we were happy we did. We both enjoyed our meals. We had a booth inside since it looked like rain and the atmosphere was warm. The service was great too.
