A nice place to take a date

Max's is an up scale tavern with a large menu. It should be easy for everyone to find something they like. The burgers are super and service excellent. Will return.

Remember this is a sports bar,while watching the Red Sox play at 3pm and they asked my friend to take off his Red Sox hat said there is a dress code? No hats no ripped jeans and no fancy jewelry..this is not a real sports bar.

Stopped in for a late lunch. We had the Seafood Sampler, Caesar Salad, Watermelon Salad. All were delicious. Nicely done hot rolls and real butter. Superb Service! Plenty of Parking. Clean restrooms. Great operation.

We haven eaten here several times and always found the food very good. Recently it seems to be getting more pricey. Entries over $30 is pushing it for Springfield. The tuna taco appetizer was excellent. Oysters are oysters but a little more care when shucking eliminates shell pieces. The drink sizes at the price are a little skimpy. My wife's... More

Nestled next to the Basketball Hall of Fame where you might expect to find a restaurant limited to Burgers and the sort, Max's is a truly superb option for dining when near Springfield, Mass. A nice wine list at great prices followed by sumptuous appetizers, entrees, and desserts assures everyone of having something they will love. The specials are delectable... More

Stuck in town in downpour on a Sunday,found this through B&B. Food was terrific with home made soup and perfectly cooked fish. Service was attentive and friendly and the cost not unreasonable. Recommended wholeheartedly

My family took me to Max's Tavern last night to celebrate my birthday. The food was terrible. There was sand in the salad. The salmon special was dry and no taste and the Strawberry Shortcake had a bisquit that was so hard I could not even cut through it. Never going there again. I have been to many Max's restaurants...

My friend and I recently visited Max's Tavern for dinner. I was greeted and seated with a smile, but it took over 5 minutes (with a fairly empty restaurant) to be greeted and served water/order a drink. Looking over the menu I didn't feel there was much variety and ended up ordering the duck taco appetizer special with a side... More

A co-worker and I decided to have dinner and a few drinks at Max' Tavern and were very pleased. The mix drinks were made perfectly - plenty of pour but not overwhelming - and the staff was great. I ordered the crab cake appetizer and it's one of the best I've ever had. Then I followed up with the main... More
