Simply put, I loved my Cobb salad. Might have been the best one I ever had. I will definitely be back next time I'm in town for lunch.

After lunch at a chain restaurant stumbled upon Max's (didn't find it mentioned in any hotel literature). Had a great meal, local produce and chicken, great service and nice entertainment on the patio. Nice end to the day, if I'm ever in Springfield I will visit again!

Had lunch here on 4th of July and it was so delicious, we stopped again on our way back to airport. Extensive menu, great service. Burrata with peaches outstanding. Good burgers. Easy on and off of 91, next to basketball Hall of Fame. Worth a detour.

i went to Max's tonight and have had many great lunches there. I ordered salmon, well cooked. Well it was burned on the outside and raw in the inside, absolutely tasteless. When i showed the waitress it was raw in the middle, they probably microwaved it. It was that delicious, not! It tasted like nothing. The waitress was very apologetic,... More

Max's Tavern is a place my husband and I visit regularly. Many Fridays we grab a nice dinner at the bar. Our most recent visit was with a group of 15 to celebrate my daughter's high school graduation. We had booked the chef's room for this special occasion. For private parties of this sort, there is a special menu from... More

I'm a big fan of the Max restaurants so I was excited to have dinner here. Was very impressed with the menu. However, the execution was just so-so. Ordered the filet and it seemed they just threw it on the grill and charred it without any seasoning. It was cooked properly, at medium but just didn't have very much taste.... More

As frequent Max customers, we also occasionally stop by for an after work drink in the bar. The happy hour nosh at Max's is a great bargain for an early light dinner and drinks, but I stopped in for just a cocktail and snack with friends. First, the oysters were excellent-fresh and delicious and a bargain. Cocktails at Max's are,... More
