I like going here from time-to-time, but a lot of their food doesn't quite hit the upscale experience they're trying to imitate. It seems like they're trying to be something they are not and really could drop their prices a bit. Great atmosphere, though, and the food is tasty even if overpriced.

Great tavern atmosphere. Did not experience the dining room as we just popped in for an appy and a drink. The bar is upscale but comfortable with plenty of seating, the service is fast and friendly. There is a great choice of drinks and appetizers. The calamari and cosmo were a perfect ending to a long day at 6 flags!

Sunday mornings are best with Max's Eggs Benedict and a beautiful Bloody Mary. Both are among the best I've ever had and the service is impeccable.

We had a private business function for 35 and were seated in a private room looking out over the restaurant. Service was great and attentive. The new York strip was very good and I hear the salmon was also. Right next to the basketball hall of fame for sports fans. would definitely recommend.

Hosted a business dinner at Max's. From the call I made 2 weeks prior to the dinner itself, Max's was great. The food was very good, and the service was excellent. My half salad was just OK, but the scallop entree was fabulous! The private dining room was booked, so we were seated in the main dining room. The rectangular... More

The food here isn't bad, but on my one visit to the Basketball Hall of Fame this choice of lunch eateries had service that was less than famous. Food was good--I had the cobb salad nad it was filling--but we never had our water glasses refilled and no one came to check on us for the duration of our meal.... More

Max's is right next to the Hall of Fame, ample parking, and an option for eating outside. The atmosphere inside was nice and the staff was very friendly and attentive. Decent amount of options for apps and main courses. We all enjoyed our meals.
